The mystery surrounding Guillermo del Toro's latest project, "Pacific Rim," has been maddening for a few reasons. Considering the talent involved (del Toro, Elba, and Day), we're going to want to know as much as possible about the film. Also, every glimpse we do get of the futuristic "monsters versus robots" movie just makes us want to see it more, like the newest picture of Elba in his costume.
The latest information comes from del Toro, himself, in an interview with Total Film (via ComingSoon.net). In the interview, the director describes not only the scope of the monster attack, but runs down a few of the big brawls we can expect to see on screen.

Del Toro explains that the problem with the monsters will be a global one in order to drum up the drama. "We had a Tokyo scene that we shot here in Toronto," he said. "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."
According to the director, the arenas for the fighting will be just as varied. "We take the battles far and above! Two or three of them happen in places where there has never been a battle between kaiju and robots," he said. "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."
