Criterion in October 2016: A Feast of Guillermo del Toro, Euro Classics, Boyhood and Short Cuts

18 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Debuting ten years ago, Pan's Labyrinth remains a gorgeous, haunting masterpiece, the best film Guillermo del Toro has directed so far. In October, it will be added to the Criterion Collection with a newly graded 2K digital master and new supplemental features; it should look spectacular. The film will also be packaged together with two other directorial efforts by del Toro that have previously been released individually by Criterion, Cronos and The Devil's Backbone. The package is titled Trilogia de Guillermo del Toro and includes various new extras; the Blu-ray edition includes a 100-page hardcover book, featuring new essays, production notes and sketches. Two European classics are also heading for release in October. Ermanno Olmi's The Tree of Wooden Clogs (1978) won the Palme d'Or...

First Look at Criterion's Pan's Labyrinth Blu-ray

28 June 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Criterion Collection will release a new, 10th Anniversary edition of Guillermo del Toro's academy award winning horror/fantasy Pan's Labyrinth this fall.

The director shared the cover art on Twitter.

Since the title has not been announced by the company officially, there is no information on their website about special features or transfer work. Though, if their previous releases of Cronos and The Devil's Backbone are anything to go by, the release will be stellar.

27 June 2016 2:08 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The trilogy is complete. After releasing his previous two Spanish-language films on Blu-ray - "Cronos" and "The Devil's Backbone" - speciality label Criterion is set to do the same for Guillermo del Toro's third and most famous of his non-English films - 2006's "Pan's Labyrinth".

Still considered his best work to date by many critics, the film follows a young girl and her encounters with the fairy world during the Spanish Civil War. Today, del Toro himself has confirmed the film will be coming to Criterion and unveiled the lovely cover art that matches the tone of his earlier two releases. The disc is expected to hit shelves this Fall.

Guillermo del Toro's next film The Shape Of Water unveiled

3 May 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Director Guillermo del Toro's latest project is The Shape Of Water - a romantic fantasy set in the Cold War era...

Any film by Guillermo del Toro is worth seeing, but it's the smaller-scale, fantastical dramas that have long excited us the most. From his feature debut Cronos to The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth, they display an unmistakeable level of passion and craft.

We're excited to learn, then, that his next feature is an original project with distinct echoes of those earlier movies. As uncovered by The Tracking Board, it's reportedly called The Shape Of Water, and like The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth, sets an imaginative plot against a real-world period backdrop.

The story will take place in 1963, the era of the Cold War, the Vietnam conflict and the civil rights movement. Sally Hawkins will star as Elisa, a janitor working at a laboratory »

Crimson Peak

Here's where angels sit down to weep next to devils -- the often-brilliant Guillermo del Toro's big Gothic romance / gory ghost epic looks mighty fancy but is a mess in too many ways to count. Say it Ain't So, Guillermo! Crimson Peak Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Universal / Legendary 2015 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 119 min. / Street Date February 9, 2016 / 34.98 Starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver. Cinematography Dan Laustsen Film Editor Bernat Vilaplana Original Music Fernando Velásquez Written by Guillermo del Toro, Matthew Robbins Produced by Guillermo del Toro, Callum Greene, Jon Jashni, Thomas Tull Directed by Guillermo del Toro

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Quite the wonder child of fantasy and horror, Guillermo del Toro has made near masterpieces in the Spanish language but not fared as well breaking through the Hollywood blockbuster barrier. His top-grossing American film might be Blade II. His equally talented compatriot Alfonso Cuarón has »

On Mubi Off #4: "In a Glass Cage" & "Crimson Peak"

2 February 2016 12:50 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

On Mubi Off is a bi-weekly column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIIn a Glass Cage (Agustí Villaronga, 1986)A number of directors have put audiences in the head of a murderer using a subjective point of view shot—Michael Powell, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, to name but a very few. The opening sequence of Agustí Villaronga's 1986 feature film debut, In a Glass Cage, further perverts that sense of empathetic identification by using subjective Pov to put us in the mind of a killer in the making. We don't know who this germinal cut-throat is at first, only that he or she is bearing witness to a truly unspeakable horror: a middle-aged man lasciviously caressing, then beating to death, a naked, bloodied and helpless adolescent boy. Though the actions playing »

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark signs Guilermo Del Toro to direct because duh

14 January 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Guillermo Del Toro and Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark is a marriage that should result in the birth of glorious nightmares for an entire generation of kids. The original Alvin Schwartz books were smart, savvy collections of stories that had been told and retold, like a Grimm Bros. collection for campfire tales, and Stephen Gammell's illustrations in the original editions of the books are a big part of the reason they were as memorable as they were. In late 2013, Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan set the project up at CBS Films. They were originally set to write the film. In late 2014, the property changed hands, and John August was brought in on the rewrite. Now it appears that Scary Stories has picked up a terrific filmmaker to bring it to life, and in this Tweet that shows off his original pages from Scary Stories, framed and hanging on the walls of Bleak House, »
