Pacific Rim is a sci-fi film about humanity fending off an alien attack by enormous monsters called Kaijus with human-built giant robots called Jaegers. The film contains all sorts of cool looking FUI found both in the cockpits of the Jaegers and in the Local Command Center (LOCCENT) which communicates with them. An 85 member team at the Canadian-based studio Hybride, in partnership with ILM, was responsible for all the holographic UI found in the film.

The cockpits of the Jaegers feature numerous holographic screens projected in front of the pilots, holographic projections on each of the pilots arms and hemi-spherical projections on the pilots hand disks. Like most command centers, the LOCCENT filled with many 2D monitors as well as a unique circular holographic display made up of multiple single color layers.
