Guillermo del Toro Tequila

There’s already a Hellboy whiskey that was released earlier this year, but if you’re looking for something a little harder, former Hellboy film franchise director Guillermo del Toro has something that you might want to get your hands on.

Beloved horror, fantasy and sci-fi filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has teamed up with the tequila company Patrón to offer his own extra añejo tequila for the ages. Before you think this is just an instance of another celebrity trying to make some extra cash by slapping their name on a bottle of alcohol, you should understand that del Toro comes from Jalisco, Mexico, which is the home of tequila itself. Plus, once you see the bottle, you’ll see that del Toro put the same kind of effort into this little endeavor as he does his motion pictures.

Hellboy Reboot

The news of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen remains bittersweet. The reboot landed a helluva team with Neil Marshall (The Descent) and David Harbour (Stranger Things), but it was also a reminder of the death of Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy 3. When it became clear the filmmaker wasn’t going to make his epic finale a reality, the demon’s creator, Mike Mignola, decided to move on with the reboot – which was originally envisioned as remaining in the world del Toro established on the big screen.

Below, Mignola discusses the Hellboy reboot.

Del Toro harry potter

Guillermo del Toro was offered the chance to direct Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. When Christopher Columbus decided not to direct the third feature after the marathon of making the first two, del Toro, Kenneth Branagh, M. Night Shyamalan, and Marc Forster were potential candidates to direct the third film. A part of the reason del Toro turned down the job was that he could finally get Hellboy going, but to this day, he still “regrets” turning down what became the best film in the franchise.

Guillermo del Toro Baby Driver

If you ever hear Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Hellboy) speak, you instantly know that the guy knows a lot about movies. He’s one of the most outspoken cinephile filmmakers working in Hollywood today, and his Twitter feed is a mixture of articles about film, behind-the-scenes photos, and stories from his own sets. Yesterday afternoon, the director took to Twitter to share his thoughts about Edgar Wright’s new car chase film Baby Driver, and if you somehow still needed to be convinced to see the new movie, this should do the trick. Read the 13-part Guillermo del Toro Baby Driver comments below.

hellboy reboot

It’s been nine years since fans last saw Mike Mignola’s comic book character Hellboy on the big screen, and though there was a metric ton of discussion about another Guillermo del Toro-directed sequel, we know that his version of Hellboy 3 is never going to happen. But all is not lost: we learned earlier this month that Mignola is taking the character in a new direction with an R-rated movie reboot that features Stranger Things actor David Harbour taking over the title role from Ron Perlman. Now Perlman has weighed in on the new casting, given Harbour his blessing, and described the scope and intentions of the abandoned capper of his would-be trilogy.

the shape of water

Two years ago, Guillermo del Toro‘s bold and brilliant Crimson Peak failed to find an audience in theaters, leaving it to attract its inevitable future following in the world of home video. Many wondered if the film’s box office failure was due to the marketing selling a straight-up horror movie while the actual film was a stranger, slightly less accessible beast. I still remember attending the film’s premiere at Fantastic Fest, where del Toro insisted that he had made a “gothic romance,” not a horror movie. He seemed well-aware that the film wasn’t being sold correctly.

So it doesn’t come as a surprise that del Toro took to Twitter today to clarify that his upcoming film The Shape of Water is not a horror movie…even though it’s about a fish monster…and even though it just received an R-rating from the MPAA.

Charlie Hunnam Pacific Rim 2

Raleigh Becket, the hotshot Jaeger pilot who tends not to play well with others, isn’t returning for next year’s Pacific Rim: Uprising. Long before director Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) started shooting the sequel, Charlie Hunnam was expected to get back in a Jaeger – but the actor eventually parted ways with the project. According to Hunnam, the split was perfectly amicable, thanks to former Legendary Pictures CEO, Thomas Tull.

Below, The Lost City of Z star shares his reasons for opting out of the sequel.
