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. In addition to the video, you can »

Legendary Pictures is constantly pushing the envelope in developing unique ways to bring fans into the incredible worlds that are on display in the company's movies.
Last year, Legendary brought fans The Godzilla Encounter and it was one of the most talked about attractions of all-time at Sdcc. This year, attendees will not have to leave the show floor to experience Legendary's movies as the company has combined the innovation of virtual reality with the handcrafted artistry of moviemaking right in the confines of its booth (#3920).
Legendary's attractions at this year's show will allow fans to step right into the mind of Guillermo del Toro through an exclusive virtual reality experience, during which they will train to become a Jaeger pilot in Pacific Rim, and an interactive Gothic Gallery that will take fans right into the haunted world of Crimson Peak. We have your first look at Crimson Peak here »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.
The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Jessica Chastain has been named the next honoree at the Deauville American Film Festival.
The Zero Dark Thirty star will be recognised by the annual French festival - which pays tribute to American cinema - for her career.

"We salute her grace and talent and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance."
I'm really excited to see Guillermo del Toro's first American rated 'R' horror film Crimson Peak. From what I've heard it's going to be great! io9 recently released an interview they conducted with the director in which he discusses the haunted house, Downton Abbey "class porn," and gothic kink.
Talking about the haunted house set they filmed in he said:
"The house decays. We needed to have the house feel a little bit like an orgasm. There's a line I already cut in the editing room where it says it lays down like an animal and it goes slowly mad. The house in the screenplay and in the movie has certain features that make it seem like a living organism. So, it's decaying. It's sitting in the middle of a field, rotting.
"We knew that the top needed to be sort of the most weathered part of the house. »

Next week at Comic-Con, we'll have a much better idea of what to expect from Guillermo del Toro's next horror film Crimson Peak. But until then, some interviews with the director from the set of the film have surfaced where he talks about the haunted house at the center of the story and how they're bringing some of the ghosts inside the house to life by doing more practical effects. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam, and some of the plot and details on their characters have been revealed. Find out more about the film and the terror that del Toro has in store below. Here's the plot synopsis for del Toro's Crimson Peak: The film stars Mia Wasikowska as Edith, a young woman who crosses paths with two siblings from England, Lady Lucille Sharpe and Sir Thomas Sharpe (Jessica Chastain and »

Toronto - On movie set visits, occasionally journalists won't get the chance to talk to directors at all. Sometimes the directors are artistes, too far down the cinematic rabbit hole to engage in casual chit-chat with the fourth estate. Sometimes the directors merely glorified puppets, but the producers are happy to put themselves forward instead. And sometimes the directors are friendly, smart and well-adjusted, but making movies is such complicated work that they can't spare more than two minutes for a smile-and-wave, lest the production between to teeter like an ill-formed game of Mouse Trap. Guillermo del Toro plays by his own rules. It's mid-March on the Toronto set of Legendary/Universal’s "Crimson Peak" and del Toro is literally lifting the roof off of his production to let a small group of reporters see the inner-workings of his Victorian haunted house drama. Actually, over the course of a lengthy day on set, »

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 next 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. Last year when del Toro was filming Crimson Peak in Toronto, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. With Comic-Con next week and del Toro beginning to promote the film in San Diego, Legendary and Universal are lifting part of my set visit embargo by letting us post our massive on-set interview with del Toro. »

Last year, when Guillermo del Toro was filming his gothic horror story, Crimson Peak, in Toronto, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. Written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins, the film stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. As the synopsis says, "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 and remembers." While some set visits are so busy you barely get to see the director, what's great about a del Toro set visit is whenever he isn't needed on set, he'll hang out with the visiting journalists. And on Crimson Peak, it also meant getting an amazing personal tour of the incredible three-story practical set and an »

Guillermo del Toro is an incredible guy. At this point, I’ve been on my fair share of sets and I have never seen any director have such a thorough understanding of every little detail about the production, be so passionate about all those details and then be so thrilled to share every single one of them with a group of visiting journalists. Usually, you’re lucky to get 30 minutes with a director. Del Toro, however, would have stayed with us the entire day if he could, and that made my trip to the Crimson Peak set a particularly remarkable one. The film stars Mia Wasikowska as Edith, a young woman who crosses paths with two siblings from England, Lady Lucille Sharpe and Sir Thomas Sharpe (Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston).

As you may have noticed from our recent news that Guillermo del Toro is directing a small-scale black and white film before Pacific Rim 2, considering releasing two cuts of At the Mountains of Madness, and dropped details regarding the Pacific Rim animated series, Steve recently had a revealing conversation with the filmmaker about his upcoming projects. There’s plenty to unpack from the interview, and so today we’d like to share what he had to say about the current status of his next film, Crimson Peak, whether Pan’s Labyrinth will be coming to Criterion, and how much creative freedom he was given by FX to make his new TV series The Strain. Highlights include the revelation that Crimson Peak only has one deleted scene, a bit of insight into his production process, and the evolving creative procedure in making The Strain. Read on after the jump. Del »

Even if you've never set foot in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con, you likely know that there are always a healthy number of surprises that aren't listed on the already-massive schedule. Last year, Warner Bros. dropped perhaps one of the biggest bombs in Con history, by simply unveiling a logo, the merging of Batman and Superman's iconic symbols that let everyone know the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel was, in fact, something much, much greater: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel did the same thing last year as well, with Joss Whedon announcing that the Marvel's The Avengers sequel will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus revealing the main villain in the same breath.
Way back in 2008, my first year attending Sdcc, I was covering what I thought to be a rather innocuous Disney panel. Keep in mind, this is years before Disney had Marvel and LucasFilm in their stable. »
