Check out the Beautiful BOOK OF LIFE Trailer, from Producer Guillermo del Toro!!!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
This looks absoutely incredible. THE BOOK OF LIFE is a new animated film produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez. It is the story of Manolo (voiced by Diego Luna), a man who must journey through the Land of the Remembered in order to reunite with the woman he loves.
The art style is a gorgeous celebration of the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos, and really makes the world come alive. The visuals are rich in color and personality, and will definitely be something to take in on the biggest of screens.
THE BOOK OF LIFE hits theaters this Halloween.
The story focuses on the romantic, strong-jawed Manolo, who has big problems besides the growing competition with his best friend. Manolo dreams of breaking away from his family's rich history of bullfighting to play the guitar, much to the dismay of his father, the world's greatest matador (Hector Elizondo) and super-macho grandfather (Danny Trejo).
This journey takes him from the Land of the Living to the Land of the Remembered, where people who have lived complete lives, and are remembered among the living, go after they die. A final, daunting destination is The Land of the Forgotten, where those who have died with unfulfilled lives dwell.
Along the way Manolo meets his bullfighter great-grandfather, who always wanted to be an opera singer (Placido Domingo) but never followed his dream. There are also wild characters including Candle Maker (rapper Ice Cube), an ancient god with a body of wax and a beard made of clouds.
