Last year, Legendary brought fans The Godzilla Encounter and it was one of the most talked about attractions of all-time at SDCC. This year, attendees will not have to leave the show floor to experience Legendary's movies as the company has combined the innovation of virtual reality with the handcrafted artistry of movie making -- right in the confines of its 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.
THE CRIMSON PEAK GOTHIC GALLERY
A physical experience handcrafted by Guillermo del Toro himself, fans will get a glimpse behind the curtain of Crimson Peak 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. As people walk through, they will get the message loud and clear - BEWARE CRIMSON PEAK!
