On Thursday, online streamer Rooster Teeth debuted the official trailer for its new mecha anime series, gen:LOCK, starring the voice talents of Michael B. Jordan, Dakota Fanning, Maisie Williams, Asia Kate Dillon and David Tennant.

The series is set fifty years in the future when an authoritarian force is threatening to take over the world. As the trailer reveals, a team of misfits and renegades are called together to pilot new mecha. They soon learn the true sacrifices their new jobs will entail.

The series premieres Saturday, Jan. 26, when the first two episodes will drop. Episode one will be available for free, but fans must sign up for a $4.99 monthly membership to watch episode two. Episodes will then premiere weekly thereafter until the final episode lands on March 9.
