There’s always something alluring about 19th century gothic horror stories.
From the mind of Guillermo del Toro, “Crimson Peak” is being described as a ghost story and gothic romance blended together. The film has a good cast with Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Jessica Chastain.
The story follows a young author Edith Cushing who discovers her charming husband is not who he appears to be.
The Film Stage has the first image of Chastain in her gothic costume below. Of course, this is before the transformation of whatever she is going to be in the film.
“Crimson Peak” will be in theaters on October 16 next year.
Check out the first image below.

Why, hello there Jessica Chastain. What a lovely and dark dress you have on. It complements the creepy stairwell you are standing in wonderfully. According to a report over at Indiewire this is our first look at Chastain as Lady Lucille Sharpe in wardrobe for Guillermo Del Toro's Gothic chiller Crimson Peak. It is everything that we have come to expect from Gothic cinema. The costume was designed by Kate Hawley who worked with Del Toro on Pacific Rim and has moved on to Suicide Squad since. In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house...

Break out your Evanescence CD and dust off your Hot Topic crushed velvet wardrobe, because Guillermo del Toro and Jessica Chastain are bringing Victorian gothic back with a vengeance in “Crimson Peak.” TheFilmStage got a hold of this first image of Chastain as the mysterious Lady Lucille Sharpe. We don’t know anything about her character other than her sense of style is On Point. Via: @TheFilmStage Details are scarce on del Toro’s latest film. The plot synopsis comes up short, saying only that a young Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) realizes her charming new husband (Tom Hiddleston) is not who he appears to be. Whether this means he’s a serial killer or a supernatural creature is up for debate. "Crimson Peak" is currently set to hit theaters on October 16, 2015. »

Though Jessica Chastain has played some pretty fierce female characters throughout her career, according to the Oscar-nominated actress, women are definitely being under-represented in film.
In a new interview with Indiewire, the 37-year-old Chastain -- who proudly calls herself a feminist -- says she's just been "lucky" to have the opportunity to play such strong female roles in films like Zero Dark Thirty and Interstellar.
"When I speak out I'm not doing it from a selfish place because I get incredible opportunities," she says. "I'm speaking out as an audience member who is going to the cinema and noticing there's a problem here because I don't see women being represented. I don't see Asian-American actresses begin represented. I don't see women in their 60s being represented in film. ... There are these really fantastic actresses out there, but there are so few opportunities."

In a year that’s brimming with big-name blockbuster sequels and high-profile superhero spinoffs, 2015 promises great things for movie fans. However, not every upcoming movie is a reboot, remake, or sequel. One of the most anticipated titles on the cinematic calendar comes from the maestro of genre, Guillermo Del Toro, whose haunted house horror Crimson Peak is set to arrive in the fall.
This year’s Comic-Con saw the director take to the stage to present those lucky attendees with a sneak peek at some early footage. The crowd went wild for a brief glimpse into the spooky mansion at the heart of the tale, and now the rest of the world can do the same with a first look at one of the movie’s leading ladies.

The last time we saw director Guillermo Del Toro, he was wrecking all sorts of shop in Pacific Rim, and before he goes back to the world of giant robots and kaiju Godzilla would give his Atomic Breath to fight in Pacific Rim 2, he is going a lot smaller and character driven with Crimson Peak, which sees the director in full on gothic, haunted house mode. The first image from the project has come online, featuring Jessica Chastain. If you've seen any of Del Toro's early movies, especially The Devil's Backbone, will know he knows his way around a good ghost story, and considering he has one of the most unique aesthetics in Hollywood at the moment, Crimson Peak is going to be one extremely pretty horror movie.

A Most Violent Year explores the question of how dirty you'll allow your hands to get in your effort to achieve the success you desire with a clear conscience. Center stage, soiling his hands and yet not entirely ready to admit it, is Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac), a small-time heating oil distributor facing issues with his competitors, the district attorney (David Oyelowo) and the banks. A little more comfortable with dealing with reality is Abel's wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain), the two having worked side-by-side for years, taking over the business from her father and finally looking to turn the small family business into something much bigger as the film opens with Abel making a deal to purchase an oil holding facility along the water. Abel's mounting troubles, however, are likely to make finalizing that deal a little harder. Where the film's ominous title comes into play is in its setting. »

We had a few peaks of Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak at last year's Comic-Con and it looked lovingly creepy. Del Toro visual skills are in full effect for this tale. The Film Stage tweeted our first image of Jessica Chastain in a twisted dress looking very much like a character out of a Hammer horror film.

Guillermo del Toro and Legendary Pictures are following Pacific Rim with Crimon Peak, a horror thriller in the grand old “big haunted house” mode, but with a cast and budget that are more typical of today’s tentpole films.

Immersed in a gothic atmosphere, taking place in a haunted house with a personality all its own, featuring an impressive core cast of Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam, and directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro, Crimson Peak is a movie many are looking forward to seeing when it hits theaters next fall, and now the first image from the film has been unveiled.
A Legendary movie that will be released by Universal Pictures on October 16th, 2015, Crimson Peak sees del Toro returning to the director’s chair for a smaller, more intimate film. We have the first image from the movie below (from The Film Stage via Collider), which shows Jessica Chastain standing on the landing of an eerily lit staircase, as well as the official synopsis for Crimson Peak (via Collider):

Entertainment Weekly has a whole bunch of new images for upcoming movie and TV shows as they preview 2015 in their latest issue. One of the movies being profiled is Guillermo del Toro's horror thriller Crimson Peak. The first image of Jessica Chastain has debuted, which finds the woman creeping around the haunted house at the center of this terrifying tale.
Jessica Chastain stars as Lady Lucille Sharpe in this story of a young author who discovers her husband isn't who he claims to be. Set in Cumbria, in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) discovers that her charming new husband Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston) is actually hiding quite a few secrets.
Here’s the final entry in my annual assessment of movies that have a chance to pass the first stage of the Foreign Language Oscar race. We expect the shortlist to come out tomorrow and I’m expecting a number of the films I’ve profiled below, and here and here, will make the grade. I spoke with the directors of the films about their inspirations and expectations and I also checked in with the U.S. distributors about why they bought the movies. Below is a look at the final five titles that have generated serious buzz over the past several weeks of screenings, Q&As and consulate lunches (and there are also a handful of special mentions). The films are in no particular order:

Over the past few years, Halloween movies for the most part have meant sequels, remakes, or cheapie low budget efforts that trick or treat their way into the number one spot at the box office for a single weekend and then disappear. But next year Guillermo Del Toro is likely to change the game. He'll be coming back hard with his star-studded, period-set, gothic chiller "Crimson Peak." And the first look at Jessica Chastain's character in the film, scanned from the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly is making the rounds on the webosphere. Joined by Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hiddleston, this haunted house film has a pretty terrific logline: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, »

Guillermo Del Toro's Crimson Peak is easily one of my most-anticipated films of 2015. It's been eight years since Pan's Labyrinth was released, and the director will now be returning to a smaller canvas following Hellboy II: The Golden Army and Pacific Rim (not to mention the false starts on The Hobbit and At the Mountains of Madness). Crimson Peak is part-ghost story, part-gothic romance, and part-haunted house flick. Putting that combination together in the hands of Del Toro is an incredibly exciting prospect, and that's not to mention a stellar cast featuring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Charlie Hunnam The first Crimson Peak image has been released, and it shows Chastain in a beautiful crushed blue velvet dress, standing in dilapidated surroundings. The trailer we saw at Comic-Con (one of the few that hasn't officially been released online) was terrific, and I'm eager to see what else Del Toro has in store. »
