Canada's CBC News recently did a piece on an unusual occurrence in downtown Toronto, it was apparently turning Japanese. Or, more accurately, turned Japanese by director Guillermo del Toro for his film Pacific Rim.
Called Still Seas by the reporters, Pacific Rim features humans in giant robots facing off against huge monsters attacking the Earth. Note that the CBC report says that Tokyo got clobbered by a sea monster. They also said that they will be filming in Toronto throughout the rest of the month.
Pacific Rim, which opens May 10, 2013, stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Willem Dafoe, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman.
