Here's your look at the newest official trailer for Netflix's new anime Pacific Rim: The Black, premiering March 4:

"Pacific Rim: The Black" – 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.

"In just four short years since launching our creative team in Tokyo, Netflix has expanded the reach and overall audience of anime – a category conventionally seen as niche. Given the success of shows such as 'Seven Deadly Sins' and 'Baki,' we are excited now more than ever to challenge ourselves to expand our aspirational anime programming for fans around the world," said Taiki Sakurai, Chief Producer, Anime, Netflix. "To do so, we will continue to invest in new talent, and promote diversity from within. We're excited to announce welcoming Anand Varna, our second Gobelins Fellowship student to our Creative team through our successful multi-year program with the French institution."
