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.

It’s the tale of two Fox television shows that never quite cut it on the major network, with “Terra Nova” barely squeaking out one season, but the cult-adored “Arrested Development” making it to three (with a film project and new series in the pipeline).

Much to our surprise, one of the most popular stories we've run in the last few months was the news from the comedian Peter Serafinowicz that he was working on a film featuring his cult creation Brian Butterfield, an obese, incompetent middle-aged man who seems to botch everything he turns his hand to, but it speaks to the extent to which Butterfield, and Serafinowicz, has grown more and more popular in the four years since "The Peter Serafinowicz Show" was on the air, thanks principally to the proliferation of his work on the Internet, and the actor/writer/director's star status on Twitter.

When comedian and actor David Cross took a role in “Alvin And The Chipmunks,” he received endless criticism from fans used to the alterna-comic’s anti-authoritarian stance. His memorable response suggested he was aware of how it looked, but hey, kid movies pay the bills.

It's been a pretty horrid year for Netflix. With a price hike combined with a name and service change, they lost stock value and customers in equal measure, forcing the company to go back on their plans and try and salvage some kind of goodwill with both Wall Street and the people who get those little red envelopes every day in the mailbox. Well, it looks like they are heading out of the year on a high note, as the DVD rental and streaming company has picked up the rights to one of the most highly anticipated returns in some time.

Weeks before the big announcement at the New Yorker Festival earlier this month, a rumor had leaked about potential details of a "Arrested Development" film, noting that it would center on “Ron Howard [as he] is making a movie about the Bluths using an A-List cast. But Dr. Tobias plays himself because nobody wants to play him in the movie. The Bluths decide to make their own movie in contention with Ron Howard’s.”

Showtime & Netflix Currently Vying For The Rights To Season 4The "Arrested Development" movie is the great white whale of internet fandom of the past few years. Originally airing in 2003, Mitchell Hurwitz's Fox sitcom has, over the years, enshrined its place as one of the great comedy series of all time, despite being canceled after three seasons. As the show's cast, which included Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett and David Cross, went on to bigger things, the cult grew and grew, and rumors began to circulate that Hurwitz and the show's producer/narrator Ron Howard were planning to reunite the Bluths for a big-screen adventure.

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.

Has An 'Arrested Development' Cast Member Accidentally Leaked The 'Meta' Plot Of The Movie?

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.

Will Now Spend The Rest Of His Life Saying 'It's Still Being Written' In InterviewsIf you're not familiar with Peter Serafinowicz, rest assured, he's a very, very funny man. First coming to prominence as the voice of Darth Maul in "The Phantom Menace," the actor spent years cropping up in the best of British comedies like "Spaced," "Black Books" and "Look Around You," as well as a major supporting role in "Shaun of the Dead." In recent years, however, he's gone from strength to strength; with his absurdist sketch show "The Peter Serafinowicz Show" becoming a cult hit (watch a highlight below), he's started to make waves in the US, providing most of the few laughs in the Vince Vaughn/Jon Favreau vehicle "Couples Retreat," and consistently stealing the show in "Running Wilde," the now canceled sitcom from "Arrested Development" creator Mitchell Hurwitz.
