[Images] Manila in Pacific Rim

Share today:

When we watched the film Pacific Rim I’ve always wanted to take a still shot of the scenes that were supposedly Manila, Philippines. The scenes were few and fast, only used as a history about the Kaiju attacks.

Finally, I was able to, and here is what Manila looked like after we were attacked by a Kaiju sometime between 2015 and 2017.
