Guillermo Del Toro will bring an epic monster movie to the theaters next year with Pacific Rim. The film is set in the future where soldiers piloting giant robots battle against giant monsters who have mysteriously risen five miles beneath the ocean. His homage to Japanese monster movies is currently in production in Toronto, but if you were to go where they are filming you would swear that you were in Japan. CBC News has captured footage of the films set. The film is shooting under the title of Silent Seas and Still Seas to allude potential voyeurs of its true title. Check out the footage as well as photos down below.
The film stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Diego Klattenhoff, and Clifton Collins Jr. Pacific Rim opens on July 12, 2013.
