The latest poster for Pacific Rim Uprising shows four giant Jaegers wielding all sorts of advanced weaponry, and one of them wields what looks like a giant lightsaber.

Legendary Pictures released the new poster on Tuesday to tease the release of a new trailer on Wednesday. Though the blade itself is partially obscured by another Jaeger’s gravity cannon arm, the poster offers a fairly clean look at the orange Jaeger known as Saber Athena.

We know from the panel at New York Comic Con over the summer that each of Pacific Rim Uprising’s new Jaegers has its own signature weapon. The movie’s official website even offers brief descriptions of each, along with blueprints for each giant robot.

Saber Athena, as it turns out, is “the sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created.” The “fastest in the fleet,” Saber Athena carries two twin plasma blades on its back that can be joined together into a longsword — which is what we see in the poster.

Saber Athena’s fighting style is described as “acrobatic,” which could mean it’s a spiritual successor to Crimson Typhoon from the first movie.

Here’s the new poster in full:

Unlike the chain sword we saw in the first Pacific Rim, these blades radiate with glowing blue plasma and don’t compact in any way. The material looks remarkably similar to the “graphene arc whip” wielded by Guardian Bravo (the Jaeger at the center of the poster in the background).

New Jaeger technologies, like arc, no doubt emerged as innovations within the ten years that passed since the first movie occurred. We haven’t really seen these twin blades cut anything just yet, but if they’re anything like the arc whip, then they must shock and burn anything they touch.

They’re probably not quite the same as a superhot blue lightsaber from Star Wars. Instead, they probably more closely resemble the riot control batons wielded by members of the first order that the, like the stormtrooper that confronted Finn in The Force Awakens or Captain Phasma in The Last Jedi.

Maybe we’ll know more about this and other weapons when the next trailer drops tomorrow.

Pacific Rim Uprising will be released in theaters March 23, 2018.

A brand-new actress has joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX, and we’re all wondering: Who is Naomi Ackie playing in the new Star Wars movie?

Late on Friday afternoon, Lucasfilm announced via StarWars.com the official cast for Star Wars: Episode IX. It came with several surprises, including the return of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker (who died in The Last Jedi) and the late Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa. But one newcomer for the final episode of this new trilogy is Naomi Ackie, a relatively unknown British actress who once appeared on Doctor Who.

The spark that will light the fire to destroy the First Order has been lit, and guess who’s coming back to let it burn?

On Friday, Lucasfilm revealed the cast for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode IX, and unofficially told racist, sexist internet trolls to eat shit as the announcement included the return of actress Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico.

It’s almost time for back to school — Huntress school, that is. At RTX 2018, Rooster Teeth Animation announced the release date of the next season of the studio’s crown jewel, western anime RWBY.

RWBY Volume 6 will premiere October 27. And in an interview with Inverse, series star Lindsay Jones (the voice of Ruby Rose) reveals that Volume 6 will see the reunion of Team RWBY. The story will also build upon the significant growth of the characters from Volumes 4 and 5.

After almost 10 years, it’s time for Rick Grimes to walk out of The Walking Dead. With Andrew Lincoln’s exit for AMC’s juggernaut horror series confirmed, new series showrunner Angela Kang revealed how cable’s biggest zombie series will carry on without Sheriff Grimes.

As it turns out, The Walking Dead has never really been about Rick Grimes, but the people and the community he created.

The Godzilla sequel is adding three of Godzilla’s most-iconic kaiju co-stars to Legendary’s Monsterverse, but it’s also setting up a later movie where the King of the Monsters throws down with King Kong. The director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, revealed that his upcoming film does indeed have a concrete connection to Kong: Skull Island, though he was cagey about the specifics.
