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.
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.
We sure have been seeing a whole lot of images from The Martian lately — Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi film starring Matt Damon has been dropping images left and right, and we still haven’t even seen a trailer yet. The latest stills from the movie feature Matt Damon (of course) and Jeff Daniels, while a new video introduces us to the crew of the Ares 3, giving us our first look at footage from the film.
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.
The cast of The Huntsman just got a bit more compelling. In addition to Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt, the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel will also star Jessica Chastain. That’s almost too many awesomely talented people for us to handle. Oh, and Nick Frost will be reprising his role as one of the seven dwarves.
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.
Oh, that this was true. Normally, it's nice to pretend that late night "flashbacks" like this are real -- sure, Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Fallon totally made a soap opera together! -- but this new entry into the subgenre of chat show skits is so weird, so strange, so great that we can only wish it were true. Wish along with us.
