There are few movies we are looking forward to more than Guillermo del Toro’s giant monsters vs. robots movie Pacific Rim! The possibilities for absolute rock ’em, shock ’em mayhem are just through the roof on this one. Today del Toro offered a quick update to hungry fans on the film’s status.
“We’re at the end of our second week,” del Toro tells website io9. “We are shooting everything for the main complex in the movie, which is a huge complex in Hong Kong where the robots are maintained. We are doing that, while building downtown Hong Kong streets.”
Please let those buildings eventually be trampled by guys in crazy rubber suits! PLEASE!
