Pacific Rim: Uprising won't be charging into theaters for another year ... but in today's congested marketplace, there's no relief from the relentless marketing tentacles of Hollywood's mega-studios!

The plot to the Pacific Rim sequel is cloaked in secrecy, but we do know it revolves around the character of Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost from the original 2013 film, and his partnership with a female Jaeger pilot played by pop singer Cailee Spaeny. Titanic mechs will no doubt be stomping around again ... and now we have a first peek at what these menacing machines will look like.

Standing tall in the new issue of License! Global are looks at the film's three primary Jaegers. Try to guess their call signs, and then tell us if you think they beat the cool names of Gipsy Danger, Striker Eureka and Coyote Tango.

Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro and also starring Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Wesley Wong, Lily Ji, Chen Zitong, Lan Yingying, Qian Yongchen and Zhang Jin, Pacific Rim: Uprising is currently filming in Australia and China and set for a Feb. 23, 2018, launch.
