Guillermo del Toro Describes Battles in Pacific Rim

Guillermo del Toro is deep into production on Pacific Rim – his, in short, giant robots versus giant monsters epic which is opening July 17, 2013. The man has already done a bit of talking to Total Film about what’s to come and now more quotes from his interview have hit the web.

Via CBM, a few choice quotes from the print interview.

“We had a Tokyo scene that we shot here in Toronto. We had several Hong Kong scenes and a few scenes in Australia, through the television. We briefly see the kaiju take over San Francisco. The whole Pacific Rim needs a sense of danger.”

“We take the battles far and above! Two or three of them happen in places where there have never been a battle between kaiju and robots. From the bottom of the ocean to the atmosphere of the Earth. We have a battle in a storm at sea. Every battle we try to do differently. One is seen from the point of view of a single person. We never cut away from that point of view.”
