Special Effects Studio Mirada Shows Off Their Work on Pacific Rim


The majority of Pacific Rim‘s illusions were created by Industrial Light & Magic, but not, notably the pre-credits portion of the film. The prologue, in which Raleigh narrates the first decade or two of the human/kaiju conflict, features lots and lots of kaiju, jaegers, and related destruction, no two of which could be the same, and all of which had to fit a standard of realism to be taken as news footage. Pretty impressive stuff.

    God. These effects were so good. That everything was so contradictory (it’s dark, yet colorful! it’s gritty, yet stylish! it’s busy, yet the action is easy to follow!) and so well-put together as a whole…gosh. It’s been a while since a movie gave me goosebumps from obnoxious coolness.

    I’m a stuffy grouchy curmudgeon of a movie critic and I STILL got them.

    Pacific Rim, I salute you.
