    PSA: Don't watch this trailer if you have any interest in seeing the film. Saw it before Apes, it's spoiler-heavy.

    I didn't realize he already had something coming out. I didn't like Crimson Peak or Pacific Rim much at all but I'll always be curious what he's up to.

    Is this connected at all to Hellboy? The creature looked very similar to Abe is why I ask.[\spoiler]

    Saw the trailer before Apes, and it just shot to my most anticipated movie of the year. Looks AMAZING.

    I know the trailer gives too much plot away, but I don't think it's anything you wouldn't expect given the story and I've already forgotten a bunch of it. I won't watch the trailer again and it'll mostly fade by December.

  11. Good to hear. The trailer didn't get me too excited, but I'm hopeful because it's GDT.

    I love his artist statement for the movie.



    I saw his museum exhibit last year and it's clear he just oozes creativity and storytelling.

    Even though I haven't loved his last couple films, I still love hearing him speak or reading his writing on film, whether his own or others. I saw him speak on 6 Bunuel films last year and it was one of the highlights of that year.

    His museum exhibition is opening here at the end of September and I'm very eager to check it out. I also think this looks like his best movie in a while.

    I think it was Cronos where his dvd commentary was so funny and captivating, maybe Pan's but yeah he's delightful

    Del Toro is a genuinely wonderful human being, and it's what made his last few films being meh at best be such a bummer. Reallllllllly excited to see this.

    Pan's Labyrinth is still my favourite film.

    I liked Pan's Labrynth a lot when I first saw it, but imo it doesn't hold up. Just saw Crimson Peak last month, and overall I liked it. Though a lot of parts felt rushed. The ending esp I didn't really care what happened to any of the characters. Pacific Rim gets a lot of hate for the dialogue, but it's a very fun action movie.

    Very hopeful for this.

    What does "doesn't hold up" mean to you? I know that could mean different things to different people.

    I would say Pan's Labyrinth holds up almost shockingly well.

    Pan's Labyrinth is a classic to me.

    Just my opinion. One of the things I loved about Pans when I first saw it was the relationship between the main housemaiden, and the protagonist. The dialogue, and the way she looked out for her under the rule of the antagonist was really intriguing to me. When I rewatched it a couple years ago that's all that stood out to me again. The practical effects are awesome, and I still think it's a good movie. It's just I was willing to call it one of the most interesting films ever when I first saw it, and my hype just died down I guess. I was also a lot younger when I first saw it. That's all. Not calling it a bad movie by any means. The Hellboy movies are probably still my favorite Del Toro

    Thanks for responding. I was just intrigued which part (or whether all of it) didn't hold up.

    Think for me the gothic mythical element coupled with a historic backdrop really hits the spot. And I love foreign language films.
