This is produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy 2). While his produced features have been hit and miss (The Orphanage is wonderful, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is not), the man knows how to find unique properties and get them to the big screen. Whether they work or not, they are all interesting enough to see. I don’t see this film being any different.
This is due to release in January, Hollywood’s month to dump crap in the theater (Texas Chainsaw 3-D, anyone?). From the looks of this trailer, we may actually get a good film instead. Of course, only time will tell. What do you think of the trailer?
