Acclaimed director Guillermo Del Toro is a pretty versatile guy, it seems. The Pan's Labyrinth, Blade, and Hellboy director returns to the big screen this year with mainstream animated adventure The Book of Life.
It stars Diego Luna as Manolo, a prince in love with the beautiful Maria (Zoe Saldana). Unfortunately for him, the charming Joaquin (Channing Tatum) is also fighting for her affections, and a deadly bet over who will win leads Manolo on a magical adventure:
Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, THE BOOK OF LIFE encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.
Fox has released two featurettes and a new clip from the movie, showing off its incredible visuals and characterization.
The story looks fresh and fun, and judging on the strength of Del Toro's previous films, it's going to be worth a watch.
The Book of Life premieres October 17th.
