The wonderful Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming sci-fi film "Pacific Rim" opens in just a little over a week. The master of monsters is wasting no time to get back to his horror roots, with his new haunted house project "Crimson Peak". The director recently shared some additional details on the upcoming film.

Del Toro stated, "Crimson Peak is a much, much, much smaller movie, completely character-driven. It’s an adult movie, an R-rated movie, pretty adult. Shockingly different from anything I’ve done in the English language. Normally, when I go to do a movie in America for the spectacle and younger audience, for Blade or whatever. This movie’s tone is scary and it’s the first time I get to do a movie more akin to what I do in the Spanish movies."

The film had Emma Stone originally attached to star, but she dropped out and now Mia Wasikowska is locked in, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch. Jessica Chastain is also a part of the cast, who previously worked together with del Toro on "Mama", as well as Charlie Hunnam, who will be seeing in his "Pacific Rim".

On the dark tone of the film, del Toro explains, "[the movie] has moments that are very visceral, physical violence. You’re in this sort of sedate romance and then there is this brutal moment where you’re like, "Whoa!" And it has a lot of kinky moments. The only kinky moment I’ve ever shot is the leg f*ck in The Devil’s Backbone. [laughs] This has a little more kinkiness than that."

"Crimson Peak" is gearing up for production to kickoff in February 2014.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
