can't wait for this flick. Been anticipating it for a while. www.obsessedwithfilm.com
That does indeed look stunning! like everything Del Toro's worked on was in preparation for this, it has the feel of Devils backbone and Cronos which is cooland You can't deny Del Toro's a visionary. this can't come quick enough.

So we either have to watch it subtitled or in poorly dubbed English.
Sept. 1, 2006, 6:16 a.m. CST
to hide the fact that it's in SPANISH
Sept. 1, 2006, 6:17 a.m. CST
looks like a Halo nerd vomited up some HTML. we should remember how lucky we are whenever we complain that we don't have an edit feature on the talkbacks. at least AICN doesn't look like the menu from a shitty CD-Rom video game in 1996. as for labyrinth, count me in. anything that innovative is worth seeing. even a semi-failure is worth more than a semi-victory, if it's truly something innovative.

Sept. 1, 2006, 7:03 a.m. CST
What is the film about exactly? All the shots were edited too quick. Man, what a fucking mess.

Don't tell me that the USA gets this earlier than Germany!! Fuck that! I want my new del Toro NOW!

Why in the hell is Harry and the entire AICN website kissing this movie's ass so much? First off, no one has ever seen the previous films. Why? (drumroll please) they're poorly filmed and in SPANISH!!!!! Next, this trailer looks like a bad Sci-Fi original movie with one exception (drumroll please)it's in SPANISH!!!!! You know, I don't care how good this film could have been or may be, but the bottom line is, no matter how much you pimp this pile of shit, the average AMERICAN viewer could give two shits about a Spanish film with subtitles that is supposed to be so visually stimulating and a masterpiece in cinema. Why? You can't watch the film because dumbfuck Del Toro filmed it in SPANISH!!!!!! So, you'll be reading what the generic monster says to the generic actor and you'll miss something you were supposed to see. Stop acting like this movie will rule all and let everyone know that it's in another language and will suck. Geez, get this shit over with and start making Hellboy 2, a film we WILL go see.

... firstly, anyone who discounts a film as exciting as this looks because it's in Spanish (sorry, SPANISH!!!!!) or any other language is a moron. Secondly, you might want to look up the meaning of the www before the .aintitcool.com in the address bar of your browser. Not only Americans read this site. This film looks amazing...

Dude, you're a douchebag. Move out of Dad's basement and accept the fact that other countries speak different languages. And sometimes, just sometimes... they don't give a rat's ass what Americans think. Oh, and please don't reproduce. Douchebag.
Sept. 1, 2006, 8:31 a.m. CST
Can anyone confirm 100% that Pan's Labyrinth will only be released in Spanish? Is there an article anywhere? Not even deltorofilms.com says this. I HATE WATCHING MOVIES WITH SUB-TITLES!!! :(

by georges garvaren
was much better. I actually wanted to see that film. I suppose theres alot of film they arent showing and since the trailer makes me 'blah' about the film, it probably means its quite good and id be a fool if i missed it in the theater. So, yeah, Ill go.
Sept. 1, 2006, 9:03 a.m. CST
I speak 2 languages well, but I only go to English speaking movies. Unless I'm in mexico, then I expect to see a movie in Spanish. Or Paris, I expcect to see movies in French. Get it people?
Sept. 1, 2006, 9:09 a.m. CST
...how much apple gives harry every time he uses the phrase "glorious quicktime". ka-ching! it's sooooooooooo irritating. movie looks good, btw. loved "the devil's backbone", so think this may be good too.

In the immortal words of Gob Bluth.."C'Mon!!!!" Geez people. I'm not a racist or bigot. I am also not bagging on the Spanish language or quality spanish speaking films. I am also not pissing on subtitled films. In fact, 3 out of my top 10 films are Crouching Tiger, Hero, and Flying Daggers. Those movies just wouldn't work with any other language. My problem is that Pan's Labrynth is a film which could have had a broader appeal given the genre and filmmaker. However, it will never see my local cinema. This is just one guy's utter disappointment in learning that one of the films I looked forward to seeing is in Spanish which means I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD to watch it. p.s. Jugg Fuckling!

...if people missed your enthusiasm for this film and your dissapointment at having to wait for DVD, maybe it was you saying it looked like a 'bad Sci-Fi original movie' and then describing it as a 'pile of shit' that threw them.
Sept. 1, 2006, 10:34 a.m. CST
Cronos and Devils Backbone great movies and foreign. Hellboy and Blade 2 not so great and their English. Very odd.
Sept. 1, 2006, 10:36 a.m. CST
"hide the fact that its in SPANISH!!!!"omg, the humanity, conspiracy!!, call the x-files guy!!! All this "i hate spanish" "i hate subtitles" bull its really retarded.Learn to read faster or god forbbid, learn another damn language!!

by Sasha Nein
I wanted to see this film way back when I saw the Spanish trailers. I saw The Devil's Backbone and it was an awesome piece of work. This English trailer (whoever made it) is obviously covering up the fact that it's foreign. It's even upping the action-ey aspect of it, which might even be marketing it as a different kind of movie. Seriously, don't try and parade a movie as something else. Show the movie for what it is so that people who actually care about it will go and see it, and not just any boof that's got money to spend on a Friday night.
Sept. 1, 2006, 11:35 a.m. CST
I have met some unfortunate slobs who refuse to see sub-titled films because "you have to read". However, I can only assume that those who post to talkbalks are capable of reading and writing in at least some limited ability, so that shouldn't be the problem here. Also, I seem to remember some Jesus movie in a language nobody actually speaks anymore having been a colossal hit at the box office a couple of years ago.

I despise subtitles. Yes, I can read, no, I'm not lazy, no, I'm not racist..blah blah blah. When I go to a movie I expect to be focused and, if it's a good one, intellectually engaged in the movie I'm seeing. I simply find reading subtitles distracting. And I admit, for me, I find it nearly impossible to relate to the characters on the screen when they are not speaking my native language. Not to say that it's probably not a great movie, just not one I will pay money at the theater to see.
Sept. 1, 2006, 2:06 p.m. CST
Hopefully the story will live up to the fanatastic visual elements in the film. The last thing we need is another "The Cell". Devil's Backbone was decent, but never quite lived up to the its atmospheric premise. I really want Del Toro to succeed with this.
Sept. 1, 2006, 2:27 p.m. CST
A film set during the Spanish Civil War made by a Mexican-born filmmaker is in SPANISH! The horror, the horror...
Sept. 1, 2006, 2:32 p.m. CST
I'll be seeing this at the Toronto Film Fest next Saturday. I guess I could submit a report on it. I'm interested in seeing what all this hype is about. I'm also going to watch "Cashback" and "Little Children" along with some other movies that I guess no one really cares about.
Sept. 1, 2006, 2:36 p.m. CST
There are some reviews already on-line from the Cannes Film Festival: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10006709-pans_labyrinth
Oops, I meant Sunday. I'll be seeing it on Sunday Sep. 10. Yeah.
Sept. 1, 2006, 3:34 p.m. CST
I saw this movie two night ago. It is spectacular. I can't wait to see it again.
Sept. 1, 2006, 4:23 p.m. CST
Seriously. Anyway, Pan's Labyrinth looks amazing, incredible, GLORIOUS.
Sept. 1, 2006, 4:27 p.m. CST
Anyone have this in another format or a smaller quicktime version. My computer can't play it properly - looks like a slideshow. BTW Some of you really are getting yourselves in a tizzy over the fact that the film's not in English. Some of my favourite films aren't in English and personally I'd rather a film which is set in Spain with Spanish characters be in Spanish -it's more natural a far as I'm concerned. Personally I think you're missing out if you limit yourself to just films in English.
Sept. 1, 2006, 4:49 p.m. CST
You tittywhompers who can't read subtitles and watch a movie at the same time sadden me. You can learn how to read and watch peripherally at the same time. Your eyeballs can move while watching a movie, right? (On second thought, I've seen how guys get that deer in the headlights look while watching Adam Sandler dreck, so maybe not.) It just becomes second nature and you'll discover tons of brilliant films that aren't in English. Try Das Boot, Amores Perros, Cinema Paradiso, La Dolce Vita, Seven Samurai, City of Lost Children, The Tunnel, for starters. Brilliant stuff. Pan looks amazing and Del Toro is quickly becoming one of our most masterful storytellers. I have a feeling this is a huge leap forward for him. I can't wait! PS - could it be that many people can't read fast enough to keep up? I think that has a lot to do with it.
Sept. 1, 2006, 6 p.m. CST
Can't wait to see this one. For me, it's the beginning of a great movie marathon. Next year we get 300, Spiderman 3, Transformers (yes, I'm counting it), POTC 3, Shrek 3, Ocean's 13, Fantastic Four, Harry Potter, etc. I'll practically be living in the theater next year. :(
Sept. 1, 2006, 6:24 p.m. CST
anyone know if this will be eligible for the foreign language oscar category? i have no doubt that they won't even consider it it for the major categories, but i could definitely see them giving guillermo a nod in foreign language if it's eligible. also wondering when "subititles" became a dirty word on this site, but i don't expect an answer for that one.
Sept. 1, 2006, 7:05 p.m. CST
No way it will even get nominated. A fantasy movie? Which in an interview I listened to this week with Del Toro he described as "brutal"? No chance. Plus it will be up against the (also Spanish) Volver, which I would stake my left nut will win the fucker - Comedy, drama, raw emotion and Penelope Cruz's tits. Eyeball-hands doesn't stand a chance

How is watching subtitles any different than watching a movie with a complex plot? If any of you smart geoffreys retort back to me and say you can keep up with complex movies like nothing, yet you can't read and watch what's happening on screen at the same time, Then I'll be surprised. Do what I do when watching movies where I don't get everything the first time: If it's a great enough movie, I'll go see it again to get all the missing parts. If you miss something because of the subtitles in a movie and you're bummed because you had a really good time otherwise, just see it again! Don't call the directors out like a bunch of dimwits and demand that they limit their creativity or (god forbid) shoot a movie in their own native language! It's no big deal if you simply can't multitask, some of my friends can't do that, but please stop giving lame excuses. Don't be a jerk.

Sadly the films language barrier will give it only a good of a chance Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon had. Simply too many uncultured hicks er opps... should be PC, "red states", will whine about the language barrier and reading subs. Oscar buzz? It's just a trailer and already degenerates are crying oscar worthy? If your oscar tastes are based on trailers, I know a shit ton of bad films and directors like Uwe Boll who will love to hire you as their PR person.

Sept. 1, 2006, 9:27 p.m. CST
It having subtitles is not the real issue, it is an issue to someone because they have either an A) Reading disability B) Zealotries, narrow minded, uncultured C) Related to Darth Biggity. I mean Prof.Ikamono up above said it perfectly and pointed out the hypocrisy in people having a problem with subtitles. Passion Of The Christ was subtitled and it was a huge success (sadly). Did all the narrow minded movie goers that came pouring out of the theater in tears moved by a subtitled interpretation complain about it? Hell no it was about Jesus! So perhaps for a foreign film to be extremely successful in America, the director should perhaps throw Jesus in it to make it at least bearable to watch in this country. Seriously, anyone who publicly whines about subtitles is asking for their intelligence, arrogance, and lack of open minded respect for other filmmakers to be bashed.
Sept. 1, 2006, 10:08 p.m. CST
Seriously should have been filmed in english. Why spanish at all? How many mexicans can even afford to go to a movie?

Looks cool...the cuts are too fast....I like the thing in the hand (eyeball?) The 'church' set looked awesome! Tiny winged guy looked cool!
Sept. 2, 2006, 1 a.m. CST
So your pretty much saying all foreign films should be filmed in English by default? Zhang Yimou's films from China can't be in Mandarin? Luc Besson's films from France can't be in French? Guillermo del Toro's native films from Mexico can't be in Spanish? I know this may be asking too much jabberwookie, but if anything should be in English or dubbed is your posts. Despite the fact most of us here arn't even fluent in "trailer park, your posts are the subtitled eye sore. :)
Sept. 2, 2006, 9:55 a.m. CST
yeah, i know what all these haters are talking about. sometime's it feels like you might be missing something while reading but hey the visuals in this flick look fantastic. I'll probably see it more than once. I'm not embarrassed to admit that I will sometimes watch English speaking movies with subtitles. LOTR, Dune, etc. Anything with deep mythology and words exclusive to the film warrants a subtitle viewing.
Sept. 2, 2006, 11:48 a.m. CST
Wow that trailer looks amazing. A movie I would definitely see regardless of subtitles or dubbing. Kampbell-Kid you are ridiculous though. Ripping apart Darth for not wanting to read subtitles of a Spanish movie whilst insulting an entire religion for enjoying a movie. Newsflash buddy, YOU ARE A BIGOT! How about not referring to a 1/3 of the world's population as "narrow-minded" because some of them enjoy a film of their savior? Fricken gobshite. I'm not even Christian and I find your post ridiculous.
Sept. 2, 2006, 11:55 a.m. CST
When they showed it at Fangoria. I didnt even realize it wasnt on the net yet. I guess when you're starved for news (or in CHUD's case, anything that makes them look slightly better), this is exciting?

By which I mean closed-captioning. Once you get used to it, it's hard to stop. I feel like I am missing part of the experience now if a movie has no cc.
