We didn’t think it was possible to be any more excited about Crimson Peak, and yet here we are.
A new featurette was just released for Guillermo Del Toro’s latest, and we get confirmation from the actors and director that it’s a true gothic horror, with an emphasis on the horror.
Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Del Toro himself give us an inside look at all the main characters, including the house. If you’re not familiar with the plot, it follows Edith (Wasikowska) as she moves into the family home of her new husband (Hiddleston) and his sister (Chastain). Things get a little ghostly when Edith soon realizes the house isn’t all that it seems.
Charlie Hunnam also stars as a childhood friend of Edith’s. This may just be the perfect movie for the Halloween season, so catch it in Cineplex theatres October 16th. »

Back at the end of June, it was revealed that Guillermo del Toro is no longer attached to his long-gestating Justice League Dark adaptation at Warner Bros., and speaking to The Daily Beast, the filmmaker has revealed that he was forced to make a choice between the supernatural DC project and his upcoming sequel Pacific Rim 2.
“Warners liked the script, they were very enthusiastic and wanted to green-light it but they wanted it to coincide with the shoot of Pacific Rim 2,” said del Toro. “I was put in a very difficult place facing a difficult choice, and I chose to do Pacific Rim 2.”
Given that del Toro revealed earlier this month that Pacific Rim 2 will shoot in November, it would seem that Warner Bros.’ DC movie plans through to 2020 are far from set in stone, seeing as Justice League Dark was absent from the list of announced movies. »

Jessica Chastain joked once that she was worried she might fall in love with Charlie Hunnam on the set of their new horror film Crimson Peak. At the time, Chastain had yet to meet the hunky Sons of Anarchy actor, but he had just been cast in Fifty Shades of Grey. "Are you telling me I'm going to fall in love with Charlie Hunnam on set?" Chastain asked back in September 2013. Fast forward to Comic-Con 2015, where I caught up with Chastain and her two other Crimson co-stars Tim Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska. "I did not fall in love with Charlie, press out!" Chastain said with a big smile. "I do love him, but I'm not in love with him." Gushing that Hunnam is »

Guillermo del Toro is a visionary director. From Hellboy to Pan’S Labyrinth, he continues to inspire and thrill audiences. And personally, Crimson Peak has me excited to see the filmmaker take on a gothic romance in a very big way.

Hollywood is sure to offer up a great many horror films this fall, but the one that most has our attention is Crimson Peak. Featuring Guillermo del Toro going back to his horror-tinged roots, the film follows Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam in the story of an author who finds out her husband has some secrets […] »

When Guillermo del Toro announced he would follow up Pacific Rim by making a gothic horror story, I was ecstatic. While I love his big budget Hollywood movies, I also love his smaller films, where he can explore interesting characters against the backdrop of something unusual. In this year’s Crimson Peak, produced by Legendary and Universal and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam, del Toro uses his unique sensibilities to tell a gothic romance that features odd characters, ghosts, and a house that I’d never want to live in. As most of you know, del Toro co-wrote the film with Matthew Robbins, and the synopsis reads as follows: “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 »

If director Guillermo del Toro has his way, his new film "Crimson Peak" will make you scream and swoon.
The filmmaker brought his new gothic horror thriller, along with stars Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Jessica Chastain, to Comic-Con this past weekend, where he screened intense new footage that reveals "Peak" to be as terrifying as it is romantic.
"It's a gothic romance," del Toro told Moviefone Contributing Editor Jessica Wedemeyer in our exclusive interview. "The romance actually starts after [the characters] get married -- at the same time, you're starting to discover the horror."
For del Toro, the film is more than a beautiful-looking haunted house movie. It's a love story, with strong thematic ties that play out in the marriage between Edith (Wasikowska) and Thomas (Hiddleston).
"It's like any other marriage," del Toro said, "you discover things you don't like and then you discover the things that you really like. »

Comic-Con favourite Tom Hiddleston was on hand in Hall H to promote the upcoming film Crimson Peak. Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic horror made a stop at the Con last summer, but this time, the director brought not only his cast but some never-before-seen footage of the movie.
Del Toro wanted Crimson Peak to fully fit into the Gothic romance genre, but make no mistake, it is an adult horror at heart. The director wanted to make a film that was truly scary, something that recalls his earlier Spanish-language films like Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone, films that he referred to as some of his earlier, more artistic movies. Crimson Peak will offer its fair »

The follow-up to Magic Mike lacks numerous elements that helped make the original a global hit: director Steven Soderbergh, Matthew McConaughey, the semblance of a plot and a modicum of wit and intelligence.
None of that seems to bother the Australian females and some blokes who are flocking to Magic Mike Xxl.
The raunchy comedy directed by Gregory Jacobs whipped up about $1 million from last Monday night.s arena premiere in Sydney and Wednesday.s Chicks at the Flicks screenings at Event Cinemas.
The film starring Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett Smith raked in $4.1 million from Thursday to Sunday, ranked in third place, so the cume is $5.1 million.
That.s a stronger debut than Magic Mike, which took $3.8 million in its first weekend and finished with $12.5 million in 2012.

I remember when Legendary Pictures threw a panel in a smaller room in the San Diego Convention Center, giving away copies of "Mass Effect 2" to anyone who showed up to hear them talk about their plans for movies like "Seventh Son," "The Great Wall," and an adaptation of "Mass Effect." They've come a long way. At that point, they were partnered with Warner Bros., and they were looking to define who they were are a company. Oh, sure, they were major financial and creative players on any number of big films already, like Nolan's first two Batman films, Snyder's "300" and "Watchmen," "The Hangover," "Inception," and my beloved "Where The Wild Things Are." But talking to Thomas Tull, talking to Jon Jashni, it was clear that what they craved were films that were theirs from start to finish, movies that they felt undisputedly reflected their sensibilities. It was strange seeing them »

Panels, panels, and more panels! From Batman v Superman to Deadpool and X-Men, there were so many panels on Day 3 of San Diego Comic-Con that we’re a little punch-drunk on flash photography. All the biggest stars from franchises of the superhero persuasion were in Hall H — Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Channing Tatum, Ryan Reynolds… The list could go on for a long while.
Superheroes didn’t have a monopoly on Hall H, however. Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy were in San Diego to promote their Gothic bromance, Victor Frankenstein. Fellow Brit Tom Hiddleston was joined by Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, and director Guillermo del Toro at the panel for the similarly bleak Victorian thriller, Crimson Peak.

Comic-con: In a typically passionate yet uncharacteristically expletive-free panel during Saturday’s Legendary session, Guillermo del Toro showed footage from his upcoming ghost story.
The Mexican auteur, a perennial idol among the Comic-Con faithful, said the R-rated feature due out on October 16 was at its heart a “classical Gothic romance” and the most beautiful film of his career.
Del Toro explained how the ghost story set in a foreboding estate in Cumberland, northern England, was allowed to be what he had envisioned because of his Hollywood partners.
“Early on we decided it need to be R, it needed to be complex,” del Toro said, explaining that he tended to make his more mature works in Spanish.
Yet this time he was in for a pleasant surprise. “I felt for the first time completely free to make an adult movie in the English language.”
