Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez wowed us with his stunning visuals and his portrayal of the Mexican Day of the Dead. And it's clear from his student Emmy-award-winning short film that he's been playing with these designs and themes for a while.
Amidst all of horror movies coming out in honor of Halloween, The Book of Life celebrates a rather different holiday: the Mexican Day of the Dead. And while, as a movie, it has its flaws, Book of Life is like a great party—filled with wondrous decorations, interesting people, lots of fun, and a valuable message…
Seriously, we'd like to crawl inside the Day of the Dead-inspired movie Book of Life, even if it means occasionally being pursued by giant skull boulders. Both the Land of the Remembered and the Land of the Forgotten look simply stunning.
Day of the Dead is everywhere these days; calaveras have been adopted by everyone from punks to Pixar. But for The Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez, the holiday isn't just about the cool visuals; it's also intensely personal.
Wow. The Book of Life trailer is beautiful. It's absolutely stunning. We knew this movie was going to be good-looking, but—wow oh wow—does this trailer give us chills. Cannot wait.
The afterlife looks like a candy-coated party in Guillermo del Toro's upcoming animated film The Book of Life, inspired by the Day of the Dead. These new images from the film introduce us to the main characters and give us a sense of the wacky land of the dead.
We love the premise for The Book of Life: It's a Romeo and Juliet story set during the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead.
