We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. The buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble. Del Toro’s film is an original, R-rated period piece, which are never a sure thing at the box-office. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like Crimson Peak coming out anytime soon, so maybe that’ll be enough to draw general audiences in. It’s a very good, beautifully directed movie — and a Crimson Peak clip, a handful of features and TV spots highlight the beauty of del Toro’s latest. Check them out after the jump.

Avengers: Age of Ultron had a lot of moving pieces. The 141-minute long superhero movie has been criticized by some as being overstuffed, but once there was a much longer cut — which might’ve given the film more breathing room. Writer-director Joss Whedon had to lose a lot of material in the editing room, including a Marvel fan favorite. Learn why Loki was cut from Avengers 2 after the jump.

Writer-director Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak made a surprising debut this weekend at a festival well-suited for the film. The romantic horror picture, from the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim, probably wouldn’t have fit in at Toronto or the ongoing NYFF. But at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, del Toro’s latest was perfect for the genre-oriented film festival. To no one’s surprise, the first wave of Crimson Peak reviews are positive.

Crimson Peak, the new film from Guillermo del Toro, is the writer/director’s take on a gothic haunted house movie, with Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain as sibling residents of an old mansion who welcome Hiddleston’s bride, played by Mia Wasikowska, into their midst.
Actually, “welcome” isn’t the word to use at all, as this new Crimson Peak clip shows. While the first couple trailers for the film have been all atmosphere and effects, this one is mostly drama, as Chastain thoroughly denies any warm welcome to her brother’s new bride. Read More »
When a biopic depicts a major musical figure, one of the first orders of promotional business is to show the lead actor performing a key song. It’s the way to say “see? they can do it!” So here’s Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams in the film I Saw the Light, in a clip that takes place in the studio when Williams lays down the classic track ‘Move it on Over,’ which was a watershed tune for the singer. (A song, by the way, about a guy literally sleeping in the doghouse after his wife locks him out.)
We don’t have a trailer for the film yet, but here’s the first I Saw the Light footage, complete with a little bonus glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Sheppard Williams. Read More »
