In Which PACIFIC RIM UPRISING Gets A Gigantic New Poster

These robots are gonna kick Kaiju ass.

We're less than two months away from the release of Pacific Rim Uprising, and today the marketing team behind the film unveiled a brand-new poster from Steven S. DeKnight's highly-anticipated sequel. 

It's...well, it's about what you'd expect, really: big-ass robots defiantly standing in protection of some future cityscape, ready to take on the looming Kaiju threat to the best of their abilities (we're betting on the Jaegers in this battle). 

Let's take a look!

Pretty cool!

And, hey, in case you're just catching up, here's an extensive plot synopsis...

"John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”  Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld.  But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale."
