We’re all quite excited to see Guillermo del Toro pit monsters vs. robots in Pacific Rim, but, despite production having been underway for almost five months, coverage has been all too quiet — simply because, up to now, there hasn’t been anything to cover. Which is why it’s great that Canada’s CBC News (via ComingSoon) were able to get themselves on Rim‘s Toronto set and, in the meantime, snagged a lot of on-set footage.
You won’t get shots of del Toro or his cast — and there certainly aren’t any hints of robot or monster designs — but there are, at the very least, a few hints of destruction to be found amongst the terrific production design. (As someone who’s been to Toronto recently enough, trust me when I say this transformation is one convincing job.) So, for now, take it as a small hint of the big, big things to come.
Take a look below:
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, and Ron Perlman, Pacific Rim will open on July 12th, 2013.
Does this video have you salivating for more of Pacific Rim?
