Legendary will show footage and present cast members from “Crimson Peak,” “Krampus” and “Warcraft” at its July 11 panel in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego.
Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick will host the event.
“Crimson Peak,” directed by Guillermo del Toro, is a gothic horror story starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. Legendary Pictures produced, with Universal set to release “Crimson Peak” at the height of the Halloween season on Oct. 16.
No word on which actor will be present at the panel, but let’s hope the full cast can be there.
/Film – The Crimson Peak character posters offer a strong sense of the film’s rich, moody tone, as well as some hints about each character’s role in the story. Hunnam looks relatively normal and boring because he’s supposed to; he’s the sweet, well-meaning alternative to the sexy and mysterious stranger played by Hiddleston. Chastain’s poster burns bright, while Wasikowska looks like she’s halfway to becoming a ghost herself.
You can see the high quality ones in our gallery. Crimson Peak opens in October 16, 2015.
Some bits of updates regarding Jessica’s upcoming projects are surfacing here and there.
Jessica is currently on Poland, researching for The Zookeeper’s Wife. You can find on her Instagram some pictures of it.
The Zookeeper’s Wife is an adaptation of the novel by Diane Ackerman, which tells the true account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, who helped save hundreds during the Nazi invasion. Jessica is attached to this project since 2013.
Also, The Film Stage shared on Twitter that Blonde production will finally begin production in August. The film is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ 700-page novel of the same name, which reimagines the inner, poetic and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker, or Marilyn Monroe.
And Deadline reports that The Martian, previously scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend (November 25), will now open October 2, switching dates with Victor Frankenstein.
The first (epic!) trailer for The Martian was released today, and you can watch it below:
A few days ago People Magazine published the first look of Jessica in The Martian and I’ve been looking for a high quality of this image since then. You can find it now added in our gallery.
The Martian is set for release on November 25th in the States and November 27th in the UK, with Matt Damon leading a cast that also includes Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Sean Bean and Kristen Wiig.
The gallery was updated with two new production stills of Crimson Peak.
Recently, Digital Spy has published a great inside from Crimson Peak’s set, in a chat with Hiddleston and Jessica.
For his part, Hiddleston feels much more prepared to shine some light on the darkness of his on-screen sibling. He says of Thomas’ view of Lucille: “I think he feels very responsible for Lucille. He feels a need to look after her and protect her. She’s a very delicate and vulnerable woman, and given their family history, she needs a great deal of care and attention. On one level, he’s pulled home by Lucille, reminded of the past and the pain and the experiences they’ve had — but Edith is this light that’s pulling him away from her, that represents new experiences. She’s the future, the light in his life.”
Chastain puts it another way: “Edith is the sun, and Lucille is the moon.” The sun isn’t exactly setting well with Lucille, though we won’t know exactly why or how that displeasure will manifest until Crimson Peak plays before our eyes. At the moment, however, we do know a little bit about Lucille’s traumatic past. It involves a baby, and while Chastain won’t say what happened to the infant, she’s teases that “it did not turn out well, for her or for the child.”
The child lingers heavily in Lucille’s heart, and lingers in the air, as well, in the form of a mournful melody that Lucille plays on the piano at certain points throughout Crimson Peak. Chastain learned how to play piano specifically for the movie, and she demonstrates her skills for us, methodically moving the keys of her keyboard with pain and purpose. There are few dry eyes inside of Chastain’s trailer when she’s finished performing.
“See, I love her,” an emotional Chastain tells us, sitting by the keyboard. “Even though she’s… she’s misguided.”

This first preview promo for The Martian was released, and introduces us to crew of the Ares 3 as they head to the red planet. Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sebastian Stan and more serve as our guides through the ship and their mission, with Damon’s character signing off and looking forward to some deep dish pizza when he gets home. He doesn’t yet realize how good it’s going to taste after what he’s about to experience
Also featuring Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mackenzie Davis, Sean Bean, Donald Glover and Naomi Scott, “The Martian” opens on November 25th.
