CBC News has just posted this great behind-the-scenes video giving us our first look at Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. A film that will pit giant monsters versus humans in giant robot suits. One such place that an epic battle will surely take place is Tokyo. There will be plenty of destruction, but for this film the the real city won't be used, as Toronto will be disguised to look like Tokyo.

The directors spared no details in giving the streetscape an authentic look, everything from fake metro station signs to plastic cherry blossoms attached to the trees. - CBC News

Interesting, I attended the Comic Con panel for this flick in July. Cool to see an update, haven't heard a thing about the film in months.

Now why couldn't Fox do this in order to keep Darren Aronofsky as director of The Wolverine?
