Read More: Watch: Guillermo del Toro Gives You a Tour of His 'Man Cave' (Which is Actually a Very Creepy House) The Faun, "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006)Del Toro's 2006 masterwork has an overflowing collection of memorable creatures, none more ambiguously striking as the Faun. With cold grey skin, the devilish horns of a goat and a body made of moss, vines and trees, the Faun (played by longtime creature collaborator Doug Jones) is a menacingly designed creature. As he navigates the protagonist Ofelia through a series of three tasks, it always remains ambiguous whether he is leading her to her fairy tale destiny or demise. The Faun seems at once tender and cold, trustworthy and traitorous, and his motives remain as enticingly worrisome and enchanting as that of Rumpelstiltskin. The Pale Man, "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006)The Faun may serve a more important narrative purpose in "Pan's Labyrinth," but the film's landmark creature is unquestionably the slimy, »
"Last year I was approached to direct the first episode of the second season of True Detective," he told Indiewire.
"I considered it but I thought that the script was bad, so I didn't do it. In TV, the director is just a traffic cop, but on the other hand it is work and there's a lot of it."
Cary Fukunaga directed the entire first season, but departed for the follow-up, prompting rumours of a rift between him and Pizzolatto.

One of the more unexpected stories this week was an article by The Hollywood Reporter about how the relationship between Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures appeared to be going a bit sour.
The report suggested that production on Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" sequel had been 'halted indefinitely' and may not get going again at all. At the same time it suggested Duncan Jones' ambitious fantasy epic "Warcraft" due next summer was being seen as a "problem movie".
In the wake of that report, both directors have now chimed in on what it said. First to respond was Jones, who tweeted that the June 10th 2016 release date is a big vote of confidence in the project by the studio.
@Clawx I wouldn't worry about that. Universal moved us to the same date as Jurassic World, so we must have done something right!

There are many movies we’re looking forward to this fall (click here for the complete list of them), but near the very top of the list is “Crimson Peak.” The latest film from Mexican master Guillermo Del Toro, it promises to be a lavish Gothic horror on a scale that we haven’t seen for years, and, fingers crossed, could provide the perfect midpoint between the director’s big-budget fare and his more artful Spanish-language pictures. Read More: Guillermo del Toro Reveals How He Got An R-Rating For 'Crimson Peak,' The Ending Of 'Pan's Labyrinth,' And Much More Mia Wasikowska stars as a young American writer swept off her feet by a British aristocrat (the currently omnipresent Tom Hiddleston), only to discover when he brings her home that both his creepy old house of the title, and his even creepier, worryingly close sister (Jessica Chastain) could be deadly threats. »

With two failed projects under his belt, it's fair to say that Guillermo del Toro doesn't have a great track record in the gaming industry.
In an interview with Shack News, Del Toro described himself as the "albatross of video games" and joked that if he attempted to make another game, World War 3 would probably break out.
"I joined Thq, and Thq goes broke," he continued. "I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami.
"I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else's life, I have decided I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I'll join »
There's a second full trailer for Doctor Who series 9, and here's what we unpacked inside it...
So, another trailer, another reason to slump in disappointment or dance excited dances of delight, complete with giddy handclaps. Or somewhere in between. All are valid, but if you're reading this, you're probably erring somewhere towards the enthused anticipation and leg shaking: Doctor Who is coming back on September the 19th. It's going to have pictures and noises, and we've got proof of this here:
We've gone through this trailer with wide-eyed alacrity and, what's more, we've noticed some things. We suspect you have too. Let's share.
Peter Capaldi looks worried here, but then this trailer has a fair few new monsters on the last one we saw. However, he's not worried about being a good man or saying 'Into Darkness' like a man in a trailer anymore. This is a series about two friends going on adventures. »
Project Name: Adopted
Asking For: $49,999 on Kickstarter
Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $36,165
Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 5
Description: When adopting a child, make sure you check all the right boxes, or you might end up like Ben and Julie Adams. The Adamses are the main characters in Adopted, a web series currently seeking the funding it needs for its second season.
In the first episode of Adopted, Ben and Julie learn the 16-month-old boy they thought they were adopting is actually a 16-year-old, thanks to a mis-checked box during the adoption process. The rest of the season follows the son, Kofi, as he adjusts to his new life. At the same time, we watch Ben and Julie get used to a child who, in their eyes, skipped the majority of his childhood.

Guillermo del Toro, the man behind Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and the upcoming Crimson Peak has put his idea for a new Star Wars film out into the universe in an interview with Yahoo Movies. Hollywood is populated with directors who grew up on Star Wars. J.J. Abrams, Gareth Edwards, Rian Johnson, and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are all at various stages of their own projects set in a galaxy far, far away and del Toro, speaking strictly as a fan, has expressed his idea for what his movie would be about if given the chance, as he's very specific about the fact this is merely him talking, there's nothing offiicial about this, which, sort of makes it all the more fun. This is not real, this is me as a fat geek just geeking out and talking about it. I would do the sort of Godfather saga that »

Speaking in Hall H at Comic-Con, del Toro said: "We are creating an experience, a Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. I'll see you there, it's going to be terrifying."
Set in foggy Victorian England, Crimson Peak follows Wasikowska's young author Edith »
Guillermo del Toro has declared to EW that his upcoming "Crimson Peak" is not a haunted house movie, that instead, the gorgeous and creepy building "is a rotting representation of the family that has inhabited it...the house basically is a sinister, sinister trap." And it's also the setting of a marriage that soon turns into something far from picture perfect. “[Usually] the marriage is sort of the climax or the high point of a story,” del Toro explained. “I tried on 'Crimson' to say that the horror starts after the marriage. This girl wakes up in a strange place, not her own home, not her own bed, and she little by little realizes that she knows less about the man she married than one would expect. The curious thing is the love story really starts when they acknowledge that darkness.” Read More: Guillermo del Toro Reveals How He Got An R-Rating For 'Crimson Peak, »

At times, the filmmaker feels like the Hollywood equivalent of The Fast Show's Unlucky Alf - frequently attaching himself to fanboy-friendly properties before seeing them vanish into the wind. We take a look back at the multiple del Toro projects that never made it to the starting line below.
The flip side of the regular, primary colours Justice League heroes, DC Comics' Dark united such disparate characters as Deadman, Zatanna, John Constantine and Swamp Thing. Del Toro penned a script for the film but reportedly dropped out to focus on Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim 2.

He co-wrote The Strain trilogy and now Guillermo del Toro has teamed up with Daniel Kraus to pen Trollhunters, an upcoming coming-of-age young-adult horror novel hitting shelves from Hyperion on July 14th, and we have the book's synopsis and cover art.
Press Release -- "“You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They’re patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you’ve paid so much attention to in mirrors? It’s delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to forge your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful.”

After breaking onto the scene with visceral, dark fantasy films such as "Cronos" and "The Devil's Backbone," he moved into commercial American moviemaking, directing "Blade 2" and generating acclaim for his two "Hellboy" efforts. With lavish set pieces and a twisted sense of reality, del Toro has redefined the role of fantasy and magic in film. He's introduced a new kind of visual poetry, best exemplified in his internatonally-beloved "Pan's Labyrinth," but »

Think you're the most excited person to see the new Mad Max? Think again, because Guillermo del Toro probably has you beat. A member of the Cannes Film Festival jury, the Pan's Labyrinth director is heading to bed early every night, waking up every day for 8:30 a.m. movies, and ignoring the press all he wants — a luxury for filmmakers here. But he's determined to brave the red carpet for tonight's premiere of Mad Max. "I want to see it with a crowd. George Miller, he’s a god for me," del Toro told me at the fest's swanky opening dinner, where he was fast making a case for himself as the most delightful member of this year's jury (which also includes the Coen brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller, and the fabulous Spanish actress Rossy de Palma). "Road Warrior, man," del Toro went on. "Emotionally, without thinking about [Luis] Buñel »

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...
Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.
What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »
Following the Crimson Peak motion poster that debuted yesterday, Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures has finally unveiled the second trailer for director Guillermo del Toro's haunted house thriller. Crimson Peak is the director's follow-up to his big-budget spectacle Pacific Rim, but brings the director back to his low-budget horror movies, with films like Cronos and Pan's Labyrinth. The thriller hits theaters on October 23, just in time for Halloween.
