Last night at Comic-Con, right after the doors opened, I attended a very cool presentation at the Legendary booth.  Not only did I see a demo of the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot Oculus Rift game (I now understand why everyone is raving about Oculus Rift), I got to check out a very cool Crimson Peak set-up which included a personal tour with writer/director Guillermo del Toro.  As you can see in the video, del Toro explains more of the story for his next film, why he selected which props and costumes are on display, and how he personally designed everything you’ll see inside the booth which they’re calling a “Gothic Gallery.”   Designed to look like a set from the movie, the booth is definitely worth checking out, and I love the way it’s all-encompassing with great sound design by Randy Thom.

In addition to the video, you can also check out the Crimson Peak logo which is the family crest.  Crimson Peak stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam and will be released by Legendary and Universal in October, 2015.  For more on the film, here’s 35 things to know about the film from my set visit and a great on set interview with del Toro.
