Well, Guillermo del Toro fans, it seems like we’ve got something pretty spectacular headed our way. Promising “mystery and mystique” as well as showcasing some wonderfully sinister settings, this film seems as if del Toro took all of his favorite bits from all of his past films and created one movie with them. His style is on display here from the elegantly macabre costuming to the slow turn out of evil underbelly of the picture. With a cast that includes internet favorites (and the genuinely talented) Jessica Chaistain and Tom Hiddleston along with Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam the casting agent did a marvelous job.
This trailer has only made me more excited to see the film and October 16th, 2015 is certainly feeling like a long wait. What did everyone else think? Check out the trailer and synopsis below.
