Pacific Rim [UPDATE]


Pacific Rim is out! And with people like Harry Knowles imploring, “You must pay witness to this movie,” and Kanye calling it an all-time favorite, we’re starting to get excited. The list of practical effects Legacy made for Pac Rim is extensive, from the intricately armored pilot suits to the gargantuan machinery of the conn-pod, individually created for each country in the film. Fresh from the premiere, Legacy’s Shane Mahan was happy to report “everything we built is one hundred percent in the movie as it was shot. Guillermo Del Toro and the entire production team have pulled off something spectacular.” “It was a massive amount of work from everyone involved,” co-owner Lindsay MacGowan added. “I was most impressed by how Guillermo Del Toro and his team went out of their way to create an original blockbuster, a non-sequel summer movie, and seeing our work integrated into the story on such a grand scale was exhilarating.”


One of the most anticipated films of 2013, and we at Legacy can’t wait to tell you more about our involvement. From acclaimed director, Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim. Check back often for updates. For now, enjoy these stills from the trailers, featuring some elements that we created for the film. In theaters July 12th.

The other day, X-Men: Days of Future Past Director, Bryan Singer, tweeted out a picture of Jennifer Lawrence in her Mystique body application.  Legacy’s own, Mike Ornelaz, is there to assist in the application process of this legendary Marvel villain.  Of course, this is only a sneak peek, but Legacy has quite a few contributions to this blockbuster film, so be sure to check back often for updates and new awesomeness!  Check out some of the great write ups for the body suit on Yahoo and Huffington Post.  Can’t wait to show you more!

Summer movie season is almost upon us!  To kick it off early this year is the eagerly anticipated action spectacular, Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman.  This blockbuster sci-fi epic is an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy, and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Be sure to check back and see some “behind the scenes” and the making of elements Legacy provided for the film.  You can view the official trailers below.

The story synopsis per the official website:
On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

Oblivion was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.
