Guillermo Del Toro is busy shooting his upcoming monster movie “Pacific Rim” and up until now has been using soundstages which is why there haven't been any images leaked. Now he's moving out onto the streets of Toronto and making it look like Tokyo for the shoot.

The streets have been made up to look like the aftermath of a giant monster battle. Del Toro had this say about the project at last year's Comic-Con:

“There’s much more to it than the giant monsters and giant robots. We want to make it a big what if: what would happen in the real world if a twenty-five story thing came out of the sea and started destroying cities? How would the world change? What weapons do we need to develop to fight a thing like that? It’s not a fantastic distant future to which we have no relationship. We wanted to make it in the now.”
