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.
