Pacific Rim: Jaeger vs Kaiju Battle Special Effects Reel

by Kenny Hoeschen

Pacific Rim contained plenty of epic battles between the Jaeger robots and the giant Kaiju aliens. Industrial Light & Magic have shared this reel showing how some of the effects were created. The clips begin with Raleigh Becket first entering the Hong Kong Shatterdome then we get to see the effects behind the battle between Becket’s and Mori’s Gypsy Danger and the Kaijus Otachi and Leatherback. Finally, we get a bit of the ultimate battle under the Pacific.

Here’s how IL&M describes the clip: “For over 2 years the team at Industrial Light & Magic in San Francisco, Singapore and Vancouver worked tirelessly to bring Guillermo del Toro’s science fiction epic “Pacific Rim” to life. This reel represents a taste of the visual effects work the team was tasked with in creating everything from monstrous Kaiju to the man-made Jaegers and the environments they are seen in.”

If you like this one, be sure to check out the Rodeo FX reel also from Pacific Rim.
