Netflix has released a quartet of new posters for the upcoming anime series Pacific Rim: The Black.
Three of the posters, which made their appearance on Netflix's NX Twitter account, feature all-new Kaiju. One has multiple eyes and a glowing red chest center, while another bears a resemblance to the Kaiju Leatherhead. The final Kaiju is a reptilian beast that looks like a massive prehistoric crocodile. The fourth poster features the orange and blue Jaeger that siblings Taylor and Hayley will pilot during the course of the series.

First announced in 2018, Pacific Rim: The Black centers around a pair of siblings who are attempting to find their parents after Australia is overrun by Kaiju. The series is the first in a line of anime projects from Netflix and Legendary Television, with series based on Kong: Skull Island and Tomb Raider in the works.
There was a time when Kaiju rose from the Pacific Rim only to encounter gigantic robots, Jaegers, built to fight them back. That time has passed. Now, Australia has been overrun by Kaiju, forcing the evacuation of an entire continent. Left behind, teenage siblings Taylor and Hayley embark on a desperate search for their missing parents, teaching themselves to pilot a battered, long-abandoned Jaeger to help in their quest and give them even the slightest hope of surviving.
Co-created by Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson and produced by Legendary Television and Polygon Pictures, Pacific Rim: The Black premieres March 4 on Netflix.
