Mama is coming back, but without her biggest nemesis. Guillermo del Toro produced the 2013 horror film, which starred Jessica Chastain, and now a sequel is in the works. Unfortunately, the Oscar-nominated actress isn’t expected to return.
Guillermo del Toro is starting development on the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie. This is great news! Not just because of how good del Toro is, but because he’s a fan of the source material.
Guillermo del Toro divulged his top 10 Criterion films to the DVD site, and (unsurprisingly, given the director’s deep love of cinema) it’s an eclectic, intelligent, and wide-ranging list that he groups in “thematic/authorial pairings.” Among his picks: Terry Gilliam’s Brazil (pictured) and Time Bandits.
It’s pretty cool that Marvel’s sorcerer supreme is making his way to the movies. You know what might have been cooler? A weird and wonderful look at the mystical side of Marvel comics from two icons of modern fantasy: Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro. However, Marvel apparently disagrees.
Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak isn’t the movie most people expected. It’s not a scary, haunted house movie. It’s a saturated, world-building gothic romance that just happens to have supernatural elements.
In a series of tweets, Guillermo del Toro—obviously no stranger to the comics—decided to offer his own little tribute to Jack Kirby’s skill. It’s pretty much dead-on correct. The rest of the tweets are below.
Some people loved Guillermo del Toro’s gothic confection Crimson Peak. Some people found it disappointing. But the overall consensus seems to be that Crimson Peak not only wasn’t scary, but didn’t have a twisty enough storyline. But maybe everybody missed the huge twist at the end of the film?
The progress of Pacific Rim 2 has been like an epic battle between a Jaeger and a Kaiju. There have been ups, downs, knockouts and comebacks. First it got a release date, then it got delayed, then director Guillermo del Toro revived it from the dead—and now, he’s got an update.
Early in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, protagonist Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) eagerly gives a story she’s written to a publisher. But he sends her away, with the condescending instruction that ladies should really be writing romance stories, not ghost stories. She balks at the critique—not just because he’s a…
Guillermo del Toro is known primarily as an auteur of highly stylized horror and science fiction, but with Crimson Peak, the director has made a film that has captured the imagination of the fashion world. On Tuesday evening, Bergdorf Goodman unveiled a new series of windows inspired by the film, interpreting its…
Guillermo del Toro has an amazing gift for mixing the grotesque and the gorgeous. And his latest film Crimson Peak, out today, takes that visual panache to a brand new height. With every shot, del Toro overloads our senses more and more, until madness beckons.
A sequel to Pacific Rim might be a long ways off, but it’s still on director Guillermo del Toro’s mind. And, he has a fantastic idea for who he wants behind the controls of a new Jaeger.
If Guillermo del Toro wasn’t making movies, he’d be a Fantastic Fest attendee. He’s just one of those guys who lives and breathes, not just cinema, but weird, creepy, tense and gory cinema. So for him to bring his latest film, Crimson Peak, to the intensely genre film festival was a big deal.
We know the stories. We’ve read them. We’ve seen them made into movies, parodies and more. But we’ve never really seen the stories of Edgar Allan Poe like this. This is Extraordinary Tales.
Fans who’ve been polishing their Jaeger waiting for the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film, Pacific Rim, may want to slow down. It seems the sequel, which was set for a 2017 release date, has been “halted indefinitely” and may not get made at all.
Guillermo del Toro has only made eight films. Sure, a ninth is on the way (with 10 on deck after that), but he’s become such a well-known pop culture persona, that number feels low. Maybe it’s because his movies are so rich, they stay with us long after we leave the theater.
Guillermo Del Toro wants to move Pacific Rim from kaiju homage to straight-up kaiju canon. Good luck with that.
When we caught up with Adam Savage at San Diego Comic Con, he was excited to talk about all things Star Wars. For one thing, he’s got a special Star Wars episode of MythBusters coming up. For another, though, he visited the set of The Force Awakens, and saw something really, really cool.
Guillermo del Toro is doing full-on gothic romance in his new movie Crimson Peak, and he told us to expect “kinky,” unsettling action. We talked to the stars at Comic-Con, and asked Tom Hiddleston about the movie’s transgressive sexuality. And Jessica Chastain told us she was covered with bruises.
