Guillermo del Toro directing Hellboy 2

The last update we got on Hellboy 3: Don’t get your hopes up. Director Guillermo del Toro has had trouble finding financing for the film, which is bigger in scope compared to the previous Hellboy movies. Hellboy II: The Golden Army got made because a studio head was a fan of del Toro’s and the first movie performed so well on DVD, a market that died around the time the sequel hit home video. Since the movie’s release in 2008, every once in a while del Toro, Ron Perlman, and Hellboy’s creator, Mike Mignola, will discuss the chances of a third installment.

There are no significant or minor developments regarding the project, but del Toro still absolutely wants to make the film and, if enough fans want him to, he’ll meet with Mignola and Perlman to talk about it again.

Trollhunters Featurette

It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve gotten a new project from Guillermo del Toro. That might be because Crimson Peak was a bit of a disappointment last year, and we’ll be waiting until sometime next year to see his next movie, The Shape of Water, which started filming just a few months ago. But in the meantime, we’ll have a little something to hold us over.

Guillermo del Toro has been working with Netflix on an animated series called Trollhunters, adapted from a book he wrote himself with Daniel Kraus. While it’s clearly geared towards kids, it has some stylish animation and fantasy action that should keep his adult fans entertained until his new movie arrives. You can see what we’re talking about in a new Trollhunters featurette with new footage and some insight from del Toro himself. Read More »

death stranding trailer mads mikkelsen

Few game video game designers have managed to blur the line between interactive gaming and cinema quite as effectively as Hideo Kojima, so is it any surprise that the trailer for his latest project, the oddly titled Death Stranding, features characters played by Mads Mikkelsen and director Guillermo del Toro in motion capture performances? We still don’t know how this game plays or what it’s about or when it’s expected to hit shelves, but these actors (and the sensibilities on display in this footage) suggest that Kojima is trying to draw as many cinephiles into his web as he is gamers.

Trollhunters Trailer

At the end of last month, Netflix unveiled the first photos from their animated series Trollhunters, created by Guillermo del Toro and based on the young adult novel of the same name that he wrote with Daniel Klaus. Now the first trailer for the DreamWorks Animation show has debuted online, and it actually looks pretty decent.

The Strain season 4

Try to enjoy The Strain while you can, because the show won’t be around much longer. FX has just announced that it is picking up the vampire thriller series for a fourth season… which will be its last. But that’s not necessarily bad news, even if you’re a fan of the show. Showrunner Carlton Cuse has stressed that the decision allows him and his team to wrap up the drama on their own terms. “It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first,” he said in a statement.  Read More »

Guillermo del Toro The Shape of Water

I’m excited about all of the project that filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) is developing but I never believe any of them are actually going to happen until the first day of filming begins. That day has come for his cold war fantasy film The Shape Of Water, which begins principal photography today in Toronto Canada. Learn more about The Shape of Water, after the jump.

Guillermo del Toro LACMA

It’s no secret that Guillermo del Toro‘s Bleak House, his personal home (or “man cave” as he calls it) is a treasure trove of movie props, artifacts, art and collectibles inspired by all the fantasy, horror and sci-fi stories that he loves. We’ve seen pieces of it in video tours over the years. There’s even a book called Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions that takes a look at some of the art that has inspired del Toro’s work over the years, including some of his gorgeous drawings.

Now Guillermo del Toro is bringing his collection of paintings, drawings, maquettes, artifacts, film concept art and more to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for an exhibition called Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters. The gallery featuring a bunch of del Toro’s goodies opens today provides some insight into del Toro’s creative process, but for those who can’t attend, the filmmaker has posted a ton of photos from the exhibition online for everyone to see.

Guillermo del Toro Bleak House tour

If you’re even a casual Guillermo del Toro fan, you’ve probably heard of Bleak House, the director’s second home. It looks like any other San Fernando Valley suburban home from the outside, but inside is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful memorabilia including original art, movie props, medical oddities, books and comics, hyper-realistic live-sized mannequins of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, and more. Much more — there are reportedly over 10,000 different items inside.

In other words, it’d be any geek’s dream to drop in and explore. Most of us won’t ever get to, sadly, but recently Conan‘s Andy Richter had the opportunity to not only visit, but get a personal tour from del Toro himself. Watch the full Guillermo del Toro Bleak House tour below.  Read More »
