‘Crimson Peak’ Trailer: Del Toro’s Newest

Posted in The Screening Room by - February 13, 2015

Guillermo Del Toro consistently makes some of the most visually striking films in Hollywood. Crimson Peak is a return to the horror genre the director loves so much. The first teaser has just been released, via YouTube

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica ChastainTom Hiddleston, and Charlie HunhamCrimson Peaks looks like a beautifully dark film. The trailer doesn’t give much of the plot away, and it wasn’t particularly exciting. However, with a cast like this, I’ll gladly give it the benefit of the doubt. The plot summary is as follows:

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 & Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Jim Beaver. 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.

Crimson Peak will be released just in time for Halloween on October 16, 2015.
