Guillermo del Toro seems intent on becoming a permanent fixture at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 by appearing every day on various panels. Which is good news for his fans, myself included. Today he introduced a teaser clip for his upcoming movie Crimson Peak starring Tom Hiddleston.

This is a description of the panel by Ed Douglas from Comingsoon.net.

Next up… Guillermo del Toro!!! (I think he literally has a panel every day)

He’s being asked why it’s the right time to return to horror. “I wanted to make a movie that can blend two sides of my personality.”

GDT is talking about how it will be r-rated and incredibly violent and Legendary said “okay”

He keeps saying that the film is going to be incredibly beautiful and he’s talking about the Occulus Rift experience at the booth

He’s going to show some footage!!!

Since it’s a year and a half he’s only going to show a little bit

He’s going to show the cast in wardrobe

When GDT mentioned Tom Hiddleston everyone screamed

He says that his cast is the special FX

GDT says that despite his good looks and bad boy image as Loki, Tom is also one of the nicest guys

GDT says that he wanted to make every scene look like a painting.

GDT isn’t answering any questions from the audience but he got them going by saying two things “Hellboy 3” and “At the Mountains of Madness”

Here’s a description of the clip.

He just showed what could be a releasable teaser trailer even though the movie is over a year away

It starts with a very gory version of the Legendary Pictures logo

it’s narrated by Tom Hiddleston and shows a lot of creepy images

The camera goes through this old house showing various parts including a floor covered in dead flies as Tom narrates

Here’s what Tom Hiddleston says over the teaser:

“A house as old as this one becomes in time a living thing
Timber for bones and winds for eyes
and sitting here all alone
It starts holding onto things
Keeping them alive when they shouldn’t be
Some of them good, some are bad
Some should never be spoken about again”

After that, we hear a very creepy voice saying “My Child” and it ends on an image of Mia Wasikowska cowering in her bed before a black hand appears and grabs her shoulder

Crimson Peak looked very cool, especially the logo which is floating in what looks like blood

Everything looks promising! What’s more, he also said that next year he’s probably going to return to San Diego Comic-Con and bring the cast with him. I can’t wait for that!

Tom Hiddleston himself was not there obviously but he Tweeted two pictures of props from the movie because he’s genius like that.

And he had this to say about his absence:

See you next year, Hiddles.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies panel at Hall H, SDCC2014

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies panel just ended at Hall H, San Diego Comic-Con 2014. According to reports, it was attended by Peter Jackson, Philippa Boyens, Andy Serkis, Evangeline Lilly, Elijah Wood, Graham McTavish, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans andLee Pace. Host is Stephen Colbert (who is the real hero of the panel, in my opinion). The three main actors Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage did not attend because of their filming/stage projects.

They shared a gag-reel (which is quite funny, according to descriptions) and a teaser trailer. I’m sure we will get to see them both eventually, but the description for the teaser trailer was massively epic because it ended with a strong Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins moment.

(Descriptions by Silas Lesnick of Comingsoon.net via their live-blog.)

Set to a somber musical version of Tolkien’s “The Walking Song,” the teaser is all about building the intensity of this giant, giant battle

We see all the characters preparing for battle. Troops of Orcs, Elven warriors, etc

At the end, Thorin asks Bilbo to stand with him one last time

According to Total Film’s Tweet, the last line there goes:

“Will you follow me… one last time?”

Thranduil in battle? His Supreme Bitchface in armor, which Lee Pace himself Tweeted yesterday. (Along with the Comic-Con poster released before that.)
