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.
Universal is on quite a hot streak lately, with four of the top ten movies of 2015 so far including Jurassic World (the biggest movie of the summer), Furious 7, and Pitch Perfect 2. The studio doesn’t have a ton of big-ticket franchises, and they’re really the only major studio that’s not in the superhero game, but the brands they do have, people love. People love Jurassic Park, and the Fast & Furious movies, and those adorable little Minions, whose movie comes out in a couple weeks. People also love King Kong, which is why Universal’s rebooting that franchise as Kong: Skull Island, a new take on the old monster movie about the giant, soulful ape with a thing for blondes.
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.
Late last year, Idris Elba let slip that he and Tom Hiddleston filmed Avengers 2 cameos in a scene with Chris Hemsworth as Thor. But, if you've seen the movie, you've noticed that Tom Hiddleston and Loki are nowhere to be found. What gives? Director Joss Whedon says that the scene they filmed just “didn’t play.”
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.
You may or may not have noticed, but there’s an invasion afoot in Hollywood, and many of this past year’s most talked-about stars during awards season have been—gasp!—British. To celebrate the amazing performances delivered by these fine actors, Vanity Fair has delivered a three-part vintage-style short film, in which Keira Knightley, Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch and basically every other beloved Brit actor invade Hollywood to recreate some of our most classic moments in film.
