Comic-Con: Experience Legendary's Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot
July 23, 2014
In addition to the Warcraft logo and props on display, Legendary Pictures is letting Comic-Con visitors experience the worlds of Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim as well at their booth, #3920.
Legendary's attractions at this year's show will allow fans to step right into the mind of Guillermo del Toro through an exclusive virtual reality experience - during which they will train to become a Jaeger pilot in Pacific Rim - and an interactive Gothic Gallery that will take fans right into the haunted world of Crimson Peak, opening October 16, 2015.
A physical experience handcrafted by Guillermo del Toro himself, the Crimson Peak Gothic Gallery will allows fans to get a glimpse behind the curtain of the movie and an early tease of the ultimate haunted house. Designed in the look of one of the sets of the movie, the Gothic Gallery is a living breathing gallery of curiosities that includes props, costumes, and an atmospheric soundscape designed by Academy Award winner Randy Thom.
Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot is the next evolution of the universe Legendary is creating with director Guillermo del Toro. Created by the leading pioneers of virtual reality, Oculus VR, the attraction delivers a new benchmark in virtual reality experiences as fans will step into a fully-realized Jaeger Combat Simulator and experience what it feels like to pilot a 250-story robot. Created with original film assets from Industrial Light & Magic and developed within Unreal Engine 4, Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot provides a thrilling first-person battle between Gipsy Danger and the kaiju codenamed Knifehead.
Everyone who completes the simulation will sign-up to ‘Join the Fight’ and be awarded their own personalized Jaeger Pilot badge, paving the way for the future of the franchise.
