First look at Guillermo Del Toro’s The Book Of Life
Not sure who’s better at making creepy but cute movies–Guillermo Del Toro or Tim Burton.
The trailer for this animated film premiered online today via the Hollywood Reporter. Directed by Jorge Gutierrez and starring Diego Luna, The Book of Life follows protagonist Manolo, “a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart.”
The magical adventure fantasy formerly titled Day of the Dead appears to be rooted in the Mexican holiday. Looks promising to see people of color fully involved behind and in front of the scenes of a culturally relevant film. What do you think? The Book of Life is set to hit theaters in October.
