Orgrim and Jaegers in your living room.
It’s about to get a lot easier to hangout with Orgrim from Warcraft and the Jaegers from Pacific Rim. Legendary Pictures is partnering with Microsoft, developing new content for HoloLens. Though the film producer claims the augmented reality headset will break down “the boundary of the screen between fans and the content they love,” the main focus seems to be something that, while cool, is a bit less lofty. The partnership is looking to give fans the ability to make quick, sharable movies featuring Legendary characters.
“Created and shared by fans, mixed reality movies have the potential to be the compelling, personalized content that appeals to social media audiences,” the announcement reads. “This gives any entertainment company the chance to be part of the future of storytelling, reaching new fans and engaging existing ones in a more personal way.”
As seen in the video below, Legendary already showed off the power of the technology at the premiere of Warcraft. Though the video only mentions Warcraft and Pacific Rim, its worth noting Legendary also owns other films, such as Godzilla, 300, Sucker Punch, Jurassic World, and Interstellar.
