Guillermo del Toro's ('Hellboy,' 'Pan's Labyrinth,' 'Pacific Rim') latest venture into the horror genre -- well, as a producer anyway -- was with the Andy Muschietti-directed 'Mama,' and it's hitting DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, May 7. Don't got the money? It's cool, we have five copies on Blu-ray.

'Iron Man 3' and 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' got their screen time during last night's MTV Movie Awards, and now it's time for 'Pacific Rim' to snag the limelight. The first international TV spot for Guillermo del Toro's robots-vs-monsters showdown has hit with some more brief bits of the action.
'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain seems to be omnipresent these days, popping up in every other movie like a gorgeous robot who does not need to sleep and never stops working. The next film on her increasingly lengthy resume will be 'Crimson Peak,' the mysterious horror film from director Guillermo del Toro.
While we wait for more details on Guillermo del Toro's 'Justice League Dark' movie, he's busy assembling a different team to traverse into haunted house territory for 'Crimson Peak.' And word is the only person brave enough to lead a team down that road is 'Star Trek Into Darkness' villain Benedict Cumberbatch.
'Pacific Rim' is easily one of our most anticipated movies of 2013. An epic "Robots vs. Monsters" movie directed by the mad genius Guillermo del Toro, it's truly looking like the highlight of the summer movie season packed with all kinds of expensive blockbuster goodness. One sign that 'Pacific Rim' is going to be something special is a new character poster that doesn't highlight any of the human cast, but rather one of the film's many gigantic robots.
The Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick 'Mama' marked Andy Muschietti's directorial debut and about an $89.2 million box office payoff -- and there are still 43 territories or so to see the film. With all this success, it's only natural for Universal to want to maximise their profit by shelling out a 'Mama 2,' and it looks like the studio is already planning such a move. Too bad it'll most likely be without Muschietti behind the wheel.
'Pacific Rim' didn't have a 2013 Super Bowl trailer but that doesn't mean you can't get a new look at the film today. We've got seven hi-res new images from the film that show off some of the film's giant robots and the humans behind them. Time to get excited.
'Mama' was a huge hit for Universal Pictures (over $50 million so far) and you know what that means for a horror film: 'Mama 2.' But while studio executives are surely working on a way to spin 'Mama' into the next big horror franchise, there's one person who doesn't think there should be a 'Mama 2' - the director.
'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam is making some tidal waves on the big screen with his leading gig in Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated 'Pacific Rim,' where we'll see him portray a futuristic pilot manning a gigantic monster-fighting robot. A little bit more complex than the motorcycles he's used to, but so far it seems like he enjoys the del Toro approach as he's already eyeing a role in del Toro's next movie 'Crimson Peak.'
The "Creepy Kid" movie is officially a genre. From 'Village of the Damned' to 'The Bad Seed' to shots of Danny Torrence spaced out and making noises from the back of his throat in 'The Shining,' there's something that cuts from the screen directly to whichever gland releases that “flight” endorphin in your brain. While the marketing material makes it seem as if 'Mama' is going to be a Creepy Kid movie for the ages, it falls upon me to report that, sadly, this is not the case. This is, at root, another "Kid in Peril" flick, and while that has a value all its own, it is not quite a vehicle for inexplicable, nightmare-inducing horror.
