He's played Abe Sapien in both Hellboy movies, Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer, The Faun & The Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, and plenty of other roles which frequently call for the lanky actor to be covered in latex. One of Doug... Read More »

Guillermo del Toro is unquestionably the most unique talent of his generation of filmmakers. With an uncanny mind and an audacious style all his own, he has delivered some of the most hauntingly beautiful and singularly memorable films of the last twenty years. From enchanting fairy tales like Pan’s Labyrinth to mainstream blockbusters like Hellboy, there is simply no mistaking one of his creations for something from the mind of anybody else. The worlds he creates are dreams resting on a knife’s edge, always at risk of falling into nightmare and ruin: brimming with not just beauty, but dangers too.

The trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s next film, which is set for a December release, The Shape of Water, which looks remarkably like a cross between Hellboy’s Abe Sapien and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (a film incidentally del Toro expressed an interest in remaking). The film stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer, Nick Searcy and Doug Jones.
From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
The Shape of Water is set for release on December 8th. »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has certainly had an interesting career. He’s one who has had his films deeply embedded in horror aspects. Looking back at some of his early work like Cronos, it was clear the man had a penchant for the macabre, and it served him quite well. Del Toro went on to helm such films as Blade II, and perhaps most notably, Pan’s Labyrinth.
Pan’s Labyrinth was a defining piece of work. While Blade II was certainly a big hit when it came out in theaters, not many thought to look behind the curtain of the film itself. Blade II allowed him to move on to Hellboy, which gave him more mainstream attention, but with Pan’s Labyrinth, it finally seemed like we had a grip over what his style was capable of. Set in 1940s span, the film was a dark fairy tale that »

"This creature is intelligent... capable of understanding emotions." Fox Searchlight has revealed the first official trailer for Guillermo del Toro's new film, titled The Shape of Water. This fairy tale romance set in the 1960s at a secret government laboratory stars Sally Hawkins as a lonely, mute woman who discovers a classified "experiment" and falls in love with him. Doug Jones co-stars as the creature, which makes me think you could almost call this a Hellboy prequel about Abe Sapien specifically. It kind of has that vibe. The excellent cast includes Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, Lauren Lee Smith, and John Kapelos. This looks really wonderful - it has that iconic Guillermo del Toro design to it, along with a nice mix of feelings ranging from mystery to romance to drama. I'm sold already. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, »

Audiences at this weekend’s showings of War For The Planet Of The Apes saw the magical trailer for master story teller Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.
Today, FoxSearchlight released online the trailer.
In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as the gothic horror film The Devil’s Backbone (2001), and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream American action movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II (2002), the supernatural superhero film »

If there’s one silver lining that can be drawn from Guillermo del Toro’s decision to walk away from Hellboy, it’s that the director has cleared up his schedule to work on a handful of passion projects, most notably The Shape of Water.
Part fairytale, part Cold War thriller, the director’s latest is due to swim into theaters in December, and Fox Searchlight has today conjured up the dreamy first trailer, one which cordially invites you into del Toro’s weird and wonderful world of mute maids and shady experiments.
From the off, we’re introduced to Sally Hawkins’ Elisa and the miserable life she leads, as she spends her days scrubbing the floors of a top-secret laboratory. But as Hawkins’ mute lead soon discovers, an amphibian-like creature dwells within the confines of this grubby old laboratory, and from that point on, The Shape of Water looks »

Sally Hawkins is at the center of the otherworldly first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” portraying a lonely janitor at a government laboratory who befriends an aquatic man in a tank played by Doug Jones.
Set in 1963, the trailer portrays Hawkins’ Elisa as a mute woman — trapped in a life of silence and isolation — whose life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (played by Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
“If I told you about her — the princess without a voice — what would I say?” a narrator asks at the beginning of the trailer.
“When he looks at me, he doesn’t know how I am incomplete,” Hawkins says through sign language, translated by Richard Jenkins’ character. “He sees me as I am.”
Michael Shannon portrays a scientists studying Jones’ character who declares, “We need to take it apart and learn how it works.”

Though DC oddly seems to forget about this every single time that it happens, each direct-to-video animated movie that it releases inadvertently spoils what the next direct-to-video animated movie will be about. It happened when The Killing Joke DVD revealed the existence of Justice League Dark, and now the Batman & Harley Quinn DVD that comes out next month seems to have named Gotham By Gaslight as the next DC animated movie. That comes from a sharp-eyed Reddit user (via ComicBook.com), who somehow spotted the back cover of the Batman & Harley Quinn DVD and noticed a preview for Batman: Gotham By Gaslight listed in the special features.
For those who aren’t familiar with the original story, Gotham By Gaslight was a one-off Batman story from Brian Augustyn and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. It was released in 1989, and though it predates the official label, it’s considered »
