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.

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.

You'll Want to Escape Into the Enchanting Trailer For A Monster Calls

13 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you're a fan of Alice in Wonderland or Pan's Labyrinth, you're in for a treat. The trailer for A Monster Calls is here, and it's very reminiscent of both Lewis Carroll's classic novel and Guillermo del Toro's fantastical film. The new movie is based on the award-winning children's book by Patrick Ness and stars Lewis MacDougall as a young boy who escapes into a world of monsters to get away from the harsh reality of his life. Felicity Jones and Toby Kebbell star as his parents, and the titular monster is played by Liam Neeson, whose gravelly voice makes the trailer totally worth watching. The movie is out on Oct. 21! »

‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ Criterion Collection Artwork Revealed As Guillermo del Toro Debuts Evocative Cover

28 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” first premiered in 2006 to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success. Set in Spain five years after the Spanish Civil War, the film follows a young girl (Ivana Baquero) who escapes from her sadistic, fascist stepfather (Sergi López) into a fantasy world where she comes to believe that she’s the reincarnation of an underworld princess. The film had its world premiere at Cannes where it received a 22-minute standing ovation. It later went on to win three Oscars, including Best Cinematography. Now according to del Toro himself, the film will receive a Criterion release this fall, and he’s already shared the cover art, designed by Becky Cloonan, on Twitter. Check out the tweet in question below.

‘Blood Simple’ Trailer: Bruce Campbell Stars in This Early Version of the Coen Brothers’ Classic Debut

28 June 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Soldiers of cinema that they are, the fine folks at Janus Films are releasing a 4K restoration of the Coen Brothers’ “Blood Simple” this week. As an added bonus, the art-house stalwarts have also unveiled the two-minute trailer a certain Joel and Ethan put together as a means of securing financing for their debut feature. They got the idea from their friend Sam Raimi, whom they knew from “The Evil Dead” — which is also why the trailer features Bruce Campbell in the role that eventually went to Dan Hedaya.

The director shared the cover art on Twitter.

Guillermo Del Toro's 'The Shape Of Water' Adds An Oscar-Nominee To Its Cast

3 May 2016 7:08 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I've always said that Guillermo del Toro's talents seem to be best-utilized in smaller films, with tighter budgets that force him to tap into his own ingenuity and creativity to really make them fly. His last two major studio outings, Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak, were both greeted by slightly-above-average reviews and box office receipts that didn't exactly blow anyone away. His next film, though, is being made over at Fox Searchlight- which is Fox's indie-minded shingle. It's called The Shape Of Water, and it sounds like a return to Pan's Labyrinth territory for the Mexican filmmaker. 

The Shape Of Water centers on a mute janitor, played by Oscar-nominated actress Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), who falls in love with an amphibious man creature at the lab where she works. He's being held captive, and so she enlists the help of her neighbor to try to break the creature she loves out of the facility. »

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 »

La Punta Del Iceberg Trailer: In Spain, Suicide Is Not Painless

14 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

David Cánovas has made a series of short films in Spain and now his feature debut, La punta del iceberg (The Tip of the Iceberg) is about to open in theaters. (Note: the headline includes an obscure reference to the theme song from Robert Altman's Mash.) The trailer reveals it to be a drama, and possibly a thriller, starring Maribel Verdú (Pan's Labyrinth), Álex García, and Bárbara Goenaga (Timecrimes). After a large company is shaken by the suicide of three employees in a short period of time, Verdú is sent to investigate the circumstances. As might be expected, work stress appears to be a contributing factor, but is something else driving people to take their own lives? Something that might make the movie into a...

Doug Jones Will Lead The Way In Brilliant 'Nosferatu' Remake

14 April 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A while back, it was announced that David Lee Fisher was creating an innovative reimagining of Nosferatu. Now we know who'll be playing the iconic movie monster. 

According to Variety, Fisher has tapped famous German expressionist Doug Jones to inhabit the role. Jones is known for his work in Guillermo del Toro films like Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth. He also worked with Fisher the last time the director remade a classic silent horror film.

Jones is certainly no stranger to donning prosthetics and transforming into strange creatures, and there's perhaps no more beloved a creature in cinematic history than Nosferatu. The character's debut in the 1922 silent horror film Nosferatu is considered to be the first ever vampire movie. To this day, it's considered a horror classic.

What Fisher intends to do with this remake is really rather quite ingenious. According to Variety, the director "is creating a remix of the »

Doug Jones To Lead "Nosferatu" Remake

13 April 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He's played Abe Sapien in "Hellboy," the Pale Man in "Pan's Labyrinth," and the Silver Surfer in the "Fantastic Four" sequel. Now, Doug Jones is set to take on another iconic character.

Jones has scored the title role in "Nosferatu," David Lee Fisher's upcoming remake of F.W. Murnau's iconic 1922 silent German expressionist horror film - considered the first true vampire film ever made.

The original, unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," follows a young woman's supernatural quest to save her true love's soul and the entire world from the shadow of infernal darkness.

The film will boast a mix of live-action elements combined with colorized digital backgrounds recreated from the original film. Emrhys Cooper, Joely Fisher, Sarah Carter and Jake Turner also star.

SXSW 2016 Exclusive: First Look At New American Fable Photos

3 March 2016 3:15 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

We have the first look at four new photos from American Fable, which will soon have its world premiere at SXSW in Austin, Teas. As the photos suggest, it's a dark thriller from writer/director Anne Hamilton, a protégé of Terrence Malick who spent a year as an intern on Malicks's The Tree of Life before making her first short film. This is her feature debut; she says that she was aiming for a mixture of Fargo and Pan's Labyrinth, so that's certainly ambitious. Here's the official synopsis: American Fable is a fairytale thriller set in the 1980s Midwest farm crisis about a courageous girl living in a dark and sometimes magical world. When 11-year-old Gitty discovers that her beloved father is hiding a wealthy man...

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, »
