Sneak Peek "Pacific Rim" (aka "Still Seas")

Thanks to TorontoFilm.Net, Sneak Peek an artificially snowy set from director Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim", (working title "Still Seas"), as cast and crew shoot a scene in downtown Toronto (Elizabeth Street), set-decked to look like downtown Tokyo, Japan after a nuclear disaster.

The PG-rated, 'mecha monster' movie has been shooting @ Pinewood Toronto Studios, since October 31, 2011.

Del Toro said "Still Seas" involves giant monsters traveling through a vortex to attack major cities.

"This is my most un-modest film, " said del Toro. "The scale is enormous and I'm just a big kid having fun."

The film stars actors Charlie Hunnam ("Sons of Anarachy"), Idris Elba ("Thor") and Willem Dafoe ("Platoon").

The hostile ET's come from the parallel world 'The Anteverse', that try to destroy humanity by first attacking cities and nations neighboring the Pacific Ocean. But the creatures are thwarted in their attempts by Earth-made, high-tech, weapons-ready robots, with Hunnam playing the role of 'Raleigh Antrobus', who 'pilots' one of the advanced 'machines' called 'Jaegers'.

Legendary Pictures purchased the screenplay for "Pacific Rim" in a pre-emptive buy from screenwriter Travis Beacham ("Clash Of The Titans").
