So, Guillermo Del Toro's big secret blockbuster "Pacific Rim" is now shooting in the chameleonic Toronto, but instead of standing in for New York City or Chicago as it usually does, the streets have been completely redone as Tokyo. CBC News has a report which shows off some flashes of sets and behind the scenes action, and yes, they do call it "Still Seas" which we presume is the working title being tossed around town so fanboys don't storm with the city with dodgy cell phone cameras. Watch below.

Morgan Spurlock doesn't sleep it seems. With his Comic Con doc heading into theaters, the busy documentarian has a new show premiring on Sky Atlantic titled "New Brittania" about the differences between Brits and Americans, and later this month, he's unveiling yet another documentary, "Mansome." And while we had little idea that this was getting made, not only is it done, it's set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

While it has been five years since Fox pulled the plug and "Arrested Development" went off the air, rumors of a potential movie have been rampant, but Hollywood (and series creator and writer Mitch Hurwitz) has so far been unable to wrangle everybody back together for one more story with the Bluth family. The monocle-wearing organizers of The New Yorker Festival, however have managed to do what no one else has been able to do since 2006: get the entire cast back together in one place at the same time.

There was a while back there when rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie were numerous, but mostly added up to much ado about nothing. Every detail that emerged from the mouths of cast members sounded like wishful thinking -- a lot of talk about the script being written by 'AD' creator Mitchell Hurtwitz, but no discussion about shooting, releasing, directing or any concrete plans for the production of the movie. Hurwitz continued to focus on television for the most part but both "Sit Down, Shut Up" and "Running Wilde" were canceled by Fox, freeing up his time. And while all cast members have gone on to success after the show's three seasons, none have threatened to go supernova, leaving them in the realm of possibility to return. It seems clear: destiny wants this film to happen.

It may have suffered somewhat in recent seasons from a dip in form, especially compared to the superior nature of most of the rest of the NBC comedy line-up -- "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" -- but for the most part, we've immensely enjoyed the last seven seasons of "The Office." While it may not be as near-flawless as the BBC series on which it was based, it's remained remarkably consistent across over ten times the length, thanks to a star-making performance from lead Steve Carell, and one of the deepest, richest comedic ensembles around, one that's helped to launch names like John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms, as well as some still on the up, like Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson and Ellie Kemper.

We were already pretty excited when it was revealed that the mysterious Adam Yaunch directed short, "Fight For Your Right Revisted" had a cast that included Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black. But if IMDB is accurate, that's just the tip of the iceberg in regards to which stars will be popping their heads on screen for the forthcoming short.

Well, the film "Goats" is now finally ready to move forward in front of cameras, and only one man remains standing from that initial lineup.
