Comic-Con: Guillermo del Toro Talks Crimson Peak, the Horror of Gothic Romance, Taking a Painterly Visual Approach, Designing 3 Types of Ghosts, More

18 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Crimson Peak, in theaters October 2015, Guillermo del Toro is making his highly anticipated return to the ghost story (his last being the absolutely excellent and freaky-as-hell The Devil's Backbone in 2001).  As one of the most creative, knowledgeable and passionate filmmakers in the genre, and backed with an insanely talented cast,  del Toro is poised to deliver a first-rate creepfest bolstered by his trademark emotional heft and visual panache.  Crimson Peak stars Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Jim Beaver, Doug Jones, and Javier Botet. Following his Hall H Panel on Saturday (read Adam's full recap right here) I had an opportunity to sit down for an interview with del Toro.  He talked about whether or not we can hope to see his Hall H footage online any time soon, blending the Gothic romance and the ghost story, how horror is borne out of love, creating a film that looks like a painting, »

Guillermo Del Toro Talks the Horror and Romance of 'Crimson Peak' at Comic-Con

29 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Guillermo del Toro, who's become quite the Comic-Con fixture, hugging fanboys and journos alike, admits that his gothic horror-romance, "Crimson Peak" (Oct. 16, 2015), is the biggest movie he's ever made. "Not only the scope is bigger, but I'm going to use a word that I don't normally touch, and that's ambition," he told me after his profane-laced Legendary Hall H panel. "This is an ambitious movie from the thematic point of view and from the visual point of view." However, even though del Toro constructed "an entire Victorian mansion three stories high, with working elevators, working bathrooms, rooms, a full library," the director insists that "Crimson Peak" is not a haunted house movie. Rather, with a great cast consisting of Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, and Tom Hiddleston, this is gothic romance with a touch of horror that only del Toro could dream up: tapping both sides of his personality --. »

5 takeaways from Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak Comic-Con preview

28 July 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

It doesn't feel quite like Comic-Con unless filmmaker Guillermo del Toro takes to the Hall H stage at some point during the four-day tribute to all things pop culture and fan-ish. Having showcased both Hellboy and Pacific Rim to rapturous enthusiasm in the past, the San Diego event is old hat for the Mexican auteur. Del Toro has been consistently hilarious, honest and -- to the delight of the crowd - blasphemous in each and every one of his appearances, spinning pure gold with every comment. He (probably correctly) believes the warning on-stage talent receive about keeping their comments family-friendly is a result of his earlier panels. The glee he takes in ignoring the rule is just one of the many reasons the filmmaker always seems to have the Hall H audience in his thrall.

This year del Toro was on hand to bring the assembled masses a short but »

Doug Jones Talks Space Command, The Strain, Falling Skies, Crimson Peak and More!

28 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Without a doubt, Doug Jones is one of our favorite actors. The personable, prolific performer always has some interesting projects to talk about, and he recently sat down with Dread Central to discuss some current and future endeavors.

Jones began by describing an intriguing new movie series. Space Command: Redemption is the first installment in a proposed franchise.

"It's an original piece by writer/director Mark Zicree, who has such a pedigree in writing for film and television in the science fiction genre," Jones said, "a hugely decorated writer who has written for everything from "Star Trek: Incarnation" to "Babylon 5" and beyond. So there's elements of all that. It's got all the trappings of a science fiction show that takes place in space, but it also has a warm, heartfelt soul that's unlike anything I've read and I think that's what attracted me to it. And to be surrounded »

Comic-Con: Guillermo del Toro Unveils Crimson Peak Footage

27 July 2014 8:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few filmmakers have as much geek cred as Guillermo del Toro, who has brought us some of the most visually enchanting fantasy films in cinematic history. He’s the man who made us love the Antichrist with Hellboy, created the terrifying Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, and who brought us giddily back to our childhood days of mashing together action figures with Pacific Rim (among other stunning accomplishments). So, it wasn’t exactly a shock when his Comic-Con panel in Hall H, showcasing del Toro’s upcoming Crimson Peak, was received with wild excitement from attendees.

Before showing off some material from the horror flick, which is 18 months away from release still, del Toro told fans that the film is “a gothic romance” and, thanks to Legendary, will be R-rated, violent and beautiful. The crowd liked that promise very much. They liked what he had to show even more. »

A Legendary Entertainment panel heavy on action footage provided the perfect platform for Comic-Con favourite Guillermo del Toro to sneak footage from Crimson Peak and poll the crowd on the idea of a pair of future projects.

Hellboy 3?” The Hall H faithful roared. “At The Mountains Of Madness?’ Ditto. Del Toro had mischievously asked attendees to gauge their response for the benefit of Universal Pictures executives and their reaction left nobody in any doubt.

At the start of the panel, Legendary head Thomas Tull thanked Hall H for getting behind box office hit Godzilla and segued into a message of similar gratitude from Gareth Edwards, on site in san Francisco for Untitled Star Wars Project.

“As soon as that’s done I will be back on Godzilla,” said Edwards. Hall H then saw a montage that revealed three iconic characters set to join the sequel and drew a crescendo of roars from the masses: Rodan, Mothra »

"Warcraft," "Crimson Peak," "Hellboy 3" Teased

26 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the briefest bits of Legendary's Comic Con panel this afternoon was the premiere of the first trailer for "Warcraft," filmmaker Duncan Jones' upcoming movie adaptation of the popular online role-playing video game which is still over a year from release.

Jones says the plot deals with the origin of the conflict in Azeroth between humans and orcs, and they're going with an origin to make what is essentially high fantasy accessible to everyone. Described as "Avatar" meets "The Lord of the Rings," the trailer then showed a lot of human vs. Orc violence ranging from sword fights to lightning shooting from people's hands in very colorful environs.

The company has also released an animated version of the logo which you can see below.

Guillermo del Toro was also on hand to showcase his gothic romance thriller "Crimson Peak". The film's trailer begins with Tom Hiddleston's voiceover »

Crimson Peak Comic-Con Panel Recap: Guillermo del Toro Reveals Promising First Footage from His Gothic Romance; Gauges Audience Interest in Hellboy 3

26 July 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is a Comic-Con favorite.  Films like Hellboy and Pacific Rim went over extremely well at the massive convention in the past, and he’s also just an incredibly likeable guy—he loves movies, monsters, and has no filter when it comes to speaking on the Comic-Con stage.  However, at this year’s Legendary panel in Hall H, del Toro brought a very different kind of film that just may end up being a highlight of his oeuvre.  With the gothic romance horror pic Crimson Peak—which stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Charlie Hunnam—del Toro is aiming to meld the artful and more adult-geared tone of his Spanish-language films (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone) with the colorful and pop nature of his English-language features. During the film’s Comic-Con panel, del Toro unveiled the first incredibly promising (not to mention gorgeous »

King Kong Movie ‘Skull Island’ Set for 2016

26 July 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary Entertainment is developing a movie based on Skull Island, better known as the home of King Kong. The pic is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2016.

While the film isn’t expected to be a sequel or reboot to the 2005 movie Peter Jackson directed for Universal, Legendary’s pic will likely feature the big ape in some form, given that he was shown roaring at the end of a clip shown at its panel at Comic-Con on Saturday. Legendary announced the project for the first time there, the same place where it first announced “Godzilla” in 2012.

The island, which gets its name from an imposing skull-shaped rock formation, first appeared in the 1933 “King Kong” and subsequent films, but also is the home of many other prehistoric creatures and a primitive society of humans.

Legendary said that while previous works have touched on the island, the film was a way »

26 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Legendary Pictures is a production company that is fast becoming a safe haven for big movies anchored by visionary filmmakers. This is the studio responsible for "300," "Pacific Rim," and a whole bunch of other super awesome projects (including the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy), and has cultivated a reputation of really bringing it to Comic-Con and the fabled, cavernous Hall H. This year was no different, with Legendary (now partnered with studio Universal) rolling out a veritable laundry list of really impressive projects that the audience ate up affectionately.

The panel was long and a little overwhelming, so we thought we'd break it down into a handy list of things that we learned during the panel. This will cover the gamut -- from Hall H to you!

Watch: Guillermo del Toro Leads Personal Tour of Crimson Peak “Gothic Gallery” and Reveals First Logo at Comic-Con

24 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last night at Comic-Con, right after the doors opened, I attended a very cool presentation at the Legendary booth.  Not only did I see a demo of the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot Oculus Rift game (I now understand why everyone is raving about Oculus Rift), I got to check out a very cool Crimson Peak set-up which included a personal tour with writer/director Guillermo del Toro.  As you can see in the video, del Toro explains more of the story for his next film, why he selected which props and costumes are on display, and how he personally designed everything you'll see inside the booth which they're calling a "Gothic Gallery."   Designed to look like a set from the movie, the booth is definitely worth checking out, and I love the way it's all-encompassing with great sound design by Randy Thom.
