Ahead of a panel presentation next week at New York Comic Con, Legendary has released the latest poster for the upcoming film, Pacific Rim: Uprising, coming in March of 2018.

The still has John Boyega in the distinctive armor standing in front of what is presumably his Jaeger. The film, directed by Steven S. DeKnight, also stars Scott Eastwood, Burn Gorman and Cailee Spaeny, and is based on a story by Guillermo del Toro, who directed the original and is a producer for the sequel.

The story in the sequel takes place ten years after the original at a time when the oceans are “calm, but restless.” Given the supposed success of the Jaeger in fighting the Kaiju, the force is “inspiring a new generation to become the biggest heroes to ever walk the earth.”

Stay tuned for the upcoming conference, where they will release the first trailer, and for the March 23, 2018 release.
