Video: Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" Turns Toronto into Tokyo

Posted: April 11th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: Guillermo Del ToroSubmit Comment
Today we have a look at the sets from the upcoming sci-fi movie "Pacific" Rim, which is being directed by Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth). The movie is being filming in Toronto, which has been converted to look like Tokyo during an attack by giant monsters. Take a look at the sets by clicking on the video below.

Plot: When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.

The new movie stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr, Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman. It is set to hit theaters on July 12th, 2013.

Agree Pornfly

Guillermo Del Toro's involvement should elevate this robot/monster movie above films like Battleships and with Elba, Perlman and Charlie Hunnam (who was good in Green Street) this could be one of the best for next year for sure.

Strange yet funny seeing this in my home town. Recall there was a Resident Evil film that featured Nathan Phillip Square and City Hall in its action sequences. City Hall desperately needs a facelift and willing to bet that Del Toro's film nuke it or subjects it to a serious beat down.

Looking forward to this movie as Del Toro is a fantastic director in the true sense of bringing his fantasy creatures into cinematic realm. Toronto continues to draw big production into its city to become Hollywood North. Although the traffic gridlock from shutting down streets for production is the price to pay.

Thx neighbor to the north, Strange Brew is a classic

I suspect after this movie, a crappy version of Robotech will be on its way
I used to watch that show every morning before school until it turned into a damn soap opera

SO, it's a bit lile Real Steel by Del Toro?

Why not, just to look at Perlman's face, I'll be watching this.

Really he's about 1500 films away before you can call him the new Sam Jackson

Not seen Ghost Rider 2, But it's not often Idris has been disappointing on screen.

Along with the Walking Dead, Luther is best thing on the TV by a mile.

Ron Perlman and Idris Elba are always a pleasure to watch, but the actor I'm most curious about is Charlie Day. It'll be weird watching him fighting giant monsters. Fun, but weird.

Well Trailer, it's very disapointing and utterly crap! No, in fact, it's actually awful, everything is screwed up, the plot, the acting, the location and I got bored after 35 min.! Really terrible.

@blumpkin4 “toronto is basically tokyo anyway with all thoses asians running around eh guys?”

Per 2006 Stats, the entire Asian population (i.e. Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Indonesians, Thai, Vietnamese) represents approximately 19% of Toronto’s overall population of 2.5mil. Further breakdown reveals there are only 0.5% Japanese which is a lot smaller than your “basically Tokyo anyway” comment. More current stats unavailable but trending likely similar in support of further population growth.

So unless you are basing your inaccurate statement on standing with blinders in the middle of Toronto’s China town or Korean town or some of the other Asian concentrated developed areas in the City, you need to check your mouth dude. I realize your comments may have been flippant, but in doing so, others on WP like yours truly will call you on it.

@bando – I can relate to your comments and need to defend your home turf. Call it National pride – we all have some. Btw, Mexico is an amazing country which I have visited a couple of times – eastern coast mostly.

@Mr Blonde: 19% out of 2.5 million is still 500.000 Asians! That's an impressive number.

Also: Half of Toronto's population (1,237,720) was born outside of Canada, up from 48 per cent in 1996.

Q: what will be the ratio at this rate in only 2 generations (45 years)?

A: Good luck.

@Bullit -

You said “19% out of 2.5 million is still 500.000 Asians! That's an impressive number”.

Yes, it’s sizable as a number but spreadout over 640 sq km. There are notable concentrations in Scarborough (east), Markham (north), Mississauga (west) and the traditional Toronto Core. Point being, Toronto does not have a densely concentrated mass of Asians dwelling like you would find in the thickest urban areas of Tokyo or Hong Kong.

You said “Q: what will be the ratio at this rate in only 2 generations (45 years)? A: Good luck”.

Thanks bud. Toronto is pushing its boundaries outwards as newer towns like Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Brampton, Oakville, even Burlington are fast becoming extensions of the Greater Toronto Area or GTA. With good Government spending on Infrastructure projects such as efficient and dependable public transit (trains, buses), roadways, water treatment plants, public parks, recreational and community centres etc., I think Toronto is coping reasonably well with its expected projected growths. There is also renewed interest to densify living within the City core with elegent condominium projects by the Lake and downtown Entertainment districts. Btw, Toronto ranked 4th most livable city in the world according to The Economist Article. It doesn’t get that way without good planning and social benefits.

I think I already saw this quite some time ago. It was called Neon Genesis Evangelion. Wickedly f*cked up anime.

500k Asians per 640 sq kilometers? Isn't that approx 781 Asians per sq kilometer?

minkowski writes:

So the sq root of 640 is 25. That's a square of land 25km on each size, and into each 1km x 1km block you'd have 781 Asians? Are you sure that's right? Perhaps there's a total of 500k asians throughout all of Canada.

According to this

http://www.indexmundi.com/canada/demographics_profile.html

Asians and Arabs only make up 6%, so I'll say a nice 5% of Canada's population is Asian. From the same page, Canada has a population of 34 million, 1/10th that of the US (no wonder you guys like to brag about better living, you lack 90% of the people here in the states!). So doing the math....34 million divided by 100 is 340k, 1% of the population, and 1*5 is 5%, so 340k * 5 1.7 million, 500k of which live in Toronto alone??? Doesn't make sense, but I guess. Never been there. But the math doesn't look right.
