CBC News posted a video report that marvels at how a $150 million Hollywood movie transformed Toronto into a “Japanese disaster zone.”  The production directed by Guillermo del Toro is referred to as Silent Seas and Still Seas in the report, but we know it better as Pacific Rim.  We don’t see any filming in the video, but it is neat to see the detail of the set design, from the various signage right down to the plastic cherry blossoms tied into the trees.  Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Diego Klattenhoff, and Clifton Collins Jr. star in the movie that pits humans (and their robots) against monsters.  Pacific Rim opens on July 12, 2013.  Hit the jump to watch the set video and check out a few photos of the disaster zone that a kind reader sent in.
