Guillermo del Toro hasn’t released too much info on his new movie, Crimson Peak – initially just saying it was a haunted house film. However with the release approaching it’s time to give us a look with the first trailer.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Legendary Pictures’ CRIMSON PEAK, a co-production with Universal Pictures, is a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, del Toro and Callum Greene produce, and Jillian Share executive produces.’
The trailer looks great, so hopefully the movie will live up to it when it’s released in October, just in time for Halloween. [Read more…]
