The first full-length trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's 'Crimson Peak' is just as terrifying as you'd expect from the director of Mimic and The Devil's Backbone.
Back in February, horror fans were given a first glimpse of Guillermo Del Toro's Crimson Peak, and now the acclaimed Mexican director has unveiled the full-length trailer of a film that is sure to top many people's must-see lists this Halloween.
Don't be afraid of the dark... Mia Wasikowska in Crimson Peak
Set in a spooky mansion in Victorian England, Crimson Peak tells the story of a young author, played by Mia Wasikowska, who discovers her charming new husband (Thor's Tom Hiddleston) is not quite who he appears to be.
Edith Cushing is an aspiring writer of horror, who soon becomes plagued by shadows of the past following a tragic occurrence within her family. She meets the handsome and mysterious Sir Thomas Sharpe who is impressed with her work and asks for her hand in marriage. While she has reservations about rushing into a marriage with a stranger so quickly, she proceeds to move into his enormous spooky house with him and his brooding sister Lady Lucille Sharpe. It quickly becomes clear, though, that the Sharpes are hiding something from Edith, when she is refused a house key on the basis that part of the house is 'unsafe'. It's not long before she begins to feel a presence around her, terrifying apparitions start to rise from the shadows and a plague of blood engulfs the walls. The determined author ventures on a quest to uncover the truth about the house's violent and deadly past - and she has rather a lot of questions for her new housemates.

Did you walk away from Avengers: Age of Ultron feeling a little less than satisfied? Like perhaps there was a big Loki shaped hole in the movie and when it was all over you felt like you'd been cheated? Well if you’d been wondering why the film was sadly Loki-less, director Joss Whedon has offered an explanation which might help you get over it (a little).
Tom Hiddleston plays Loki in the Thor films.
To recap, Loki fans (and they’re a pretty hardcore bunch) were under the impression that Tom Hiddleston would appear in Avengers: Age Of Ultron thanks to a ‘spoiler’ from Heimdall actor Idris Elba. Speaking to The Telegraph in November, Elba mentioned he’d filmed a scene for Age of Ultron with Hiddleston and Thor aka Chris Hemsworth.
In the 19th Century in Cumbria, England, an old house stood overlooking a tremendous stretch of land.

Tom Hiddleston appears to have side-stepped 'Ben Hur' to work on 'Skull Island'

Previous King King movies have briefly explored the island before the ape hit New York City, though Skull Island will "take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions." As HitFix notes, the "parallels" could imply that we'll see a battle between Kong and Godzilla, who is also the property of Legendary Pictures. This is strengthened by the fact that Max Borenstein, who co-wrote Godzilla, is penning Skull Island.
