Legendary Pictures Panel

By - Posted Jul 13, 2011

Comic-Con 2011


Legendary Pictures holds its first-ever Comic-Con panel and shares an early look at some of the movies on the company's upcoming film slate, including Pacific Rim, Seventh Son, Paradise Lost, and Mass Effect.


Panel participants include Jeff Bridges, Bradley Cooper, Guillermo del Toro, Ben Barnes, Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Alicia Vikander, Alex Proyas, Sergei Bodrov, Travis Beacham, Mark Protosevich, and Casey Hudson. While all of Legendary's flicks are interesting, we're hoping for more info on the Mass Effect movie... and, maybe, if we all wish hard, we'll get to see footage from the Mass Effect movie.
