Legendary Pictures and Guillermo del Toro presented the Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con the first look of Crimson Peak. Sadly Jessica – or any member of the cast – didn’t attended as was previously announced, but Guillermo already promised he will be back next year with the whole cast.

“It’s a gothic romance,” he said, adding that Legendary allowed him to make it the way he wanted: R-rated, violent, and beautiful.

Del Toro then showed the very first look at the film, still 18 months away from release. The creepy footage showed stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam slinking around an old Victorian mansion.

“Houses as old as this one, become in time, a living thing,” star Tom HIddleston said in voiceover. “It may have timber for bones but windows for eyes, and sitting here all alone, it can go slowly bad. It starts holding on to things. Keeping them alive when they shouldn’t be. Some of them good. Some bad. Some should never be spoken about again.

The footage isn’t anywhere online – since it’s exclusive to Comic-Con, so let’s hope we can get a glimpse of it soon!
