At Comic-Con, Legendary confused attendees quite a bit by unexpectedly unveiling Skull Island at the end of its Hall H panel, which also included Guillermo del Toro speaking about his upcoming film Crimson Peak. Due to the short nature of the tease and its proximity to del Toro speaking on stage about his Gothic horror project, many assumed that Legendary was telling us del Toro would direct the King Kong origin story.
That doesn’t appear to have actually been the case, seeing as Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) has reportedly been offered the movie, but we’re not the only ones who think del Toro would be a terrific choice. Peter Jackson, the director of 2005′s King Kong, recently gave his two cents on Skull Island, voicing enthusiasm for a del Toro-directed version:
“I don’t know anything about it. I’m hearing it from you, for the first time. »

Almost immediately following Legendary's "Skull Island" announcement at Comic-Con, a wild rumor began to swirl that Guillermo del Toro was involved with the project despite the filmmaker's commitment to "Pacific Rim 2". Understandably the rumor didn't pan out as a few days later came word that Joe Cornish had been offered the gig.
Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis, who directed and starred as the title character respectively in 2005′s "King Kong," were asked about the del Toro rumor during the convention. Their answers to Collider might surprise you - seems they learned about the movie at the same time as everyone else. First up, Jackson:
"I don't know anything about it. I'm hearing it from you, for the first time. I would look forward to it. If Guillermo did King Kong, that would be great. That would be fantastic. I'll be there on the first day, and will help him with anything he needs. »

Although the major draw at Universal’s Legendary Sdcc booth was the jaeger pilot simulation from Pacific Rim, the studio had also quietly put together a teaser for another movie that Guillermo del Toro has been steadily working on: Crimson Peak. All we’ve known so far is that it’s an atmospheric horror film starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Doug Jones, and Jim Beaver—and hey, with a cast and a director like that, who needs to know much more? But Legendary thinks we do, and the props and costumes they provided indicate a Victorian period piece complete with bloody handerchiefs, creaky iron gates, and ominous photographs of family history. It also seems clear, due to the number of butterflies and an old book entited History Of Insects, that winged crawlies are going to play an important role. Even “Lucille Sharpe”‘s gown is a glinting blue, »

If I were asked to make a list of my favorite people, I'm sure Guillermo Del Toro would take up at least three or four spots on the list all by himself. Sure, he's an amazing visual artist, with a rich and detailed imagination that seems to have no limits in scope or variety, and that is something you have to value in an age where we finally have technology that can keep up with him. And, yes, I think he's got a wicked sense of humor that comes out only in the overtly comic moments in his movies but also in the way he plays things straight. He's not above playing around with the audience and the way they expect things to unfold. He'll tell you a story and he'll stick it to you with some violation of convention, and if you're onboard, you'll laugh, and if you're not, »

Writer, producer and director Guillermo del Toro is a very busy guy. At San Diego Comic-Con 2014 he was juggling press duties for his vampire TV series, The Strain, alongside promoting his new horror movie Crimson Peak and teasing upcoming projects Pacific Rim 2, Hellboy 3 and At the Mountains of Madness. It’s amazing that he ever finds time to sleep. The third episode of The Strain, ‘Gone Smooth’, aired during Comic-Con last week, and the cast and crew were on hand to give any idea of what to expect from the show. Screen Rant got a chance to sit ...

Guillermo del Toro is a busy man. When we first spoke to the filmmaker during our time at Comic Con he discussed producing Book Of Life with director Jorge Gutierrez. However, on the press line for Legendary Pictures, he took time to talk about his own directorial project, Crimson Peak. The ghostly feature film stars Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain and it sounds like a spooky good time. During our brief discussion, he opened up on his latest which will be hitting theatres »
Comic-Con International is traditionally a 4-day event held from Thursday to Sunday annually in July with an additional few hours the evening before for those with access to Preview Night. Preview Night is just as busy as a normal day at the convention as attendees, exhibitioners, industry representatives and press lineup to pickup their passes, get a first look at what’s on the show floor and to seek out the highly coveted Comic-Con exclusive merchandise.
On that night last week for Comic-Con 2014, Legendary Pictures held a special exclusive preview event for a pair of projects they wanted to showcase and we were fortunate enough to attend. As we stopped by their booth, shared with Warner Bros. on the show floor, we were met with an impressive display of Warcraft film props and the movie’s new logo. The dark ...

With Crimson Peak, in theaters October 2015, Guillermo del Toro is making his highly anticipated return to the ghost story (his last being the absolutely excellent and freaky-as-hell The Devil's Backbone in 2001). As one of the most creative, knowledgeable and passionate filmmakers in the genre, and backed with an insanely talented cast, del Toro is poised to deliver a first-rate creepfest bolstered by his trademark emotional heft and visual panache. Crimson Peak stars Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Jim Beaver, Doug Jones, and Javier Botet. Following his Hall H Panel on Saturday (read Adam's full recap right here) I had an opportunity to sit down for an interview with del Toro. He talked about whether or not we can hope to see his Hall H footage online any time soon, blending the Gothic romance and the ghost story, how horror is borne out of love, creating a film that looks like a painting, »

At the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with undoubtedly one of the busiest people that weekend, writer/director/producer Guillermo del Toro, while on the red carpet of the Legendary Pictures press event.
We spoke with the iconic filmmaker about his latest project and Legendary collaboration, Crimson Peak, and reuniting with Jessica Chastain for the project after she co-starred in Mama, another film he produced in 2013. Del Toro also chatted a bit about The Strain and gave us his thoughts on how focusing on audiences’ deepest fears can still be one of the most powerful storytelling devices available as a storytelling device in horror.
Look for Crimson Peak in theaters on October 6, 2015.

Guillermo del Toro, who's become quite the Comic-Con fixture, hugging fanboys and journos alike, admits that his gothic horror-romance, "Crimson Peak" (Oct. 16, 2015), is the biggest movie he's ever made. "Not only the scope is bigger, but I'm going to use a word that I don't normally touch, and that's ambition," he told me after his profane-laced Legendary Hall H panel. "This is an ambitious movie from the thematic point of view and from the visual point of view." However, even though del Toro constructed "an entire Victorian mansion three stories high, with working elevators, working bathrooms, rooms, a full library," the director insists that "Crimson Peak" is not a haunted house movie. Rather, with a great cast consisting of Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, and Tom Hiddleston, this is gothic romance with a touch of horror that only del Toro could dream up: tapping both sides of his personality --. »

It doesn't feel quite like Comic-Con unless filmmaker Guillermo del Toro takes to the Hall H stage at some point during the four-day tribute to all things pop culture and fan-ish. Having showcased both Hellboy and Pacific Rim to rapturous enthusiasm in the past, the San Diego event is old hat for the Mexican auteur. Del Toro has been consistently hilarious, honest and -- to the delight of the crowd - blasphemous in each and every one of his appearances, spinning pure gold with every comment. He (probably correctly) believes the warning on-stage talent receive about keeping their comments family-friendly is a result of his earlier panels. The glee he takes in ignoring the rule is just one of the many reasons the filmmaker always seems to have the Hall H audience in his thrall.
This year del Toro was on hand to bring the assembled masses a short but »

Without a doubt, Doug Jones is one of our favorite actors. The personable, prolific performer always has some interesting projects to talk about, and he recently sat down with Dread Central to discuss some current and future endeavors.
Jones began by describing an intriguing new movie series. Space Command: Redemption is the first installment in a proposed franchise.
"It's an original piece by writer/director Mark Zicree, who has such a pedigree in writing for film and television in the science fiction genre," Jones said, "a hugely decorated writer who has written for everything from "Star Trek: Incarnation" to "Babylon 5" and beyond. So there's elements of all that. It's got all the trappings of a science fiction show that takes place in space, but it also has a warm, heartfelt soul that's unlike anything I've read and I think that's what attracted me to it. And to be surrounded »

No one's a rock star at San Diego Comic-Con quite like Guillermo del Toro. Perhaps it's because everyone knows the man as one big geek himself, combined with his affable personality, limitless enthusiasm and his tendency to pepper every sentence with colorful profanity. Guillermo owns every panel he hosts, so it was no surprise that the audience reaction to seeing him come up on the Hall H stage to premiere the Crimson Peak teaser was adoration mixed with excitement. Indeed, Crimson Peak »

The filmmaker revealed that he is still working on the Warner Bros project based around the magical characters of the DC Comics universe.
Speaking at Comic-Con International in San Diego, he revealed that the forthcoming Constantine television series will not interfere with his plans for the movie.
"I'm still working on it," he told Superhero Hype. "Sandman doesn't figure in the Dark Universe. We have Deadman, we have the Demon, we have Swamp Thing, we have Zatana, we have Constantine, but DC and Warners have been very clear that they are trying to keep those properties separate, so when the time comes they can unite them, once they know they're quantifiable.
"Batman, Superman, Green Lantern... everyone eventually will come together. Right now, they're allowing us independence."
Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the forthcoming Gotham television series, »
Because of Comic-Con, a regular episode of "Most Craved" won't be running this week. Instead, we're posting several mini-episode updates throughout the Con. Previously, we brought you updates from Preview Night and from Day One. Now we've got three more video reactions straight from Hall H, covering three of Comic-Con's biggest studio panels: Warner Bros. Pictures (which offered looks at films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Legendary Pictures (which, in addition to offering looks at Warcraft and Crimson Peak, teased surprises like Gareth Edwards' Godzilla sequel and a new take on King Kong, Skull Island) and Marvel Studios (which showed off footage from Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron). »
Few filmmakers have as much geek cred as Guillermo del Toro, who has brought us some of the most visually enchanting fantasy films in cinematic history. He’s the man who made us love the Antichrist with Hellboy, created the terrifying Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, and who brought us giddily back to our childhood days of mashing together action figures with Pacific Rim (among other stunning accomplishments). So, it wasn’t exactly a shock when his Comic-Con panel in Hall H, showcasing del Toro’s upcoming Crimson Peak, was received with wild excitement from attendees.
Before showing off some material from the horror flick, which is 18 months away from release still, del Toro told fans that the film is “a gothic romance” and, thanks to Legendary, will be R-rated, violent and beautiful. The crowd liked that promise very much. They liked what he had to show even more. »

It’s Sunday and the final day of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the convention. After a crazy weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Godzilla 2, Skull Island, Mad Max: Fury Road, Crimson Peak, a ton of TV, and comic news, we’ve got one last big film announcement. As reported by Deadline from the Dynamite Comic’s panel, while promoting the Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is officially moving forward with his new western The Hateful Eight.
With hopes to begin shooting in early 2015, The Hateful Eight had a rough start after Tarantino gave the first draft of the script to a small group of actors and it was leaked online soon after. The director threw a very public hissy fit and threatened to never make the film. He had »
