As Tom Hiddleston explains in this new Crimson Peak featurette, Guillermo del Toro is the “primary interpreter of gothic romance in contemporary cinema.” That’s a rather elegant and succinct way of putting it — there’s no one more suited for telling this particular ghost story than del Toro, particularly given his eye for elaborate and eerie set design.
Guillermo del Toro is great at crafting fully immersive worlds, and soon you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the director’s latest…sort of. During the Crimson Peak panel at Comic-Con 2015, the director announced that the Allerdale Hall mansion is coming to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights 2015 — in the form of a creepy maze.
The latest batch of character posters from Crimson Peak echo the first motion poster for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror story, which featured Mia Wasikowska bathed in neon blue and red. That vivid coloring contrasted with empty blackness made quite the impression, and the latest characters posters are similarly striking.
After watching the first two trailers for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, it’s fair to say that we’re all pretty sufficiently pumped for the director’s gothic haunted house tale. The film looks absolutely gorgeous and properly eerie, but these new character posters take a different approach, seemingly taking inspiration from one of del Toro’s favorite horror productions: Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction.
If you were a fan of the Crimson Peak trailer that hit earlier this week, may we interest you in the new international trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror tale? This trailer is even more effective and haunting (literally and figuratively) than the domestic version, with lots of spooky new footage and a few sneak peeks at the actual ghosts of this ghost story.
Universal and Legendary have released the second full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, the director’s new gothic ghost story featuring Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and a whole lot of crimson on snow — that actually might be the most striking image in the entire trailer.
A new, full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak will arrive online tomorrow morning, but we’ve got some things to help keep you patient until then. Universal and Legendary have dropped a few gorgeous, haunting new images from the film featuring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska. As an added bonus, there’s also a new motion poster, too.
If you’ve been to the movie theater in the last couple years — and you like to show up early — then you’ve surely noticed one of the most pervasive and tired trends in modern Hollywood: The use of depressing cover versions of famous songs in movie trailers. It started with one brilliantly innovative coming attraction, but quickly became something of an industry standard; nearly every studio tentpole’s first teaser (and sometimes the full trailer that follows) is scored by some kind of gloomy cover of a tune everyone knows. To prove just how played out this gimmick is, ScreenCrush assembled a list of fifteen examples from the last five years. Watch ’em and weep (because these trailers are so very sad):
The first Crimson Peak trailer is here and it showcases a side of director Guillermo del Toro that we haven’t seen in far too long. Before Pacific Rim and Hellboy and even the dark fantasy of Pan’s Labyrinth, he made horror movies. Now, del Toro has returned to the genre where he made his name and the first footage from the resulting film looks as gorgeous and creepy as you’d imagine.
Just a few weeks ago, we got our first official look at Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming ‘Crimson Peak’ via a photo of Jessica Chastain looking very romantically gothic. Today brings another look at the spooky horror flick with a photo of Tom Hiddleston. But he’s not the only interesting part of the photo—just take a gander at this huge, beautiful set. Can we get a trailer for this thing already?
