A few weeks ago Guillermo del Toro and Crimson Peak cast Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska sat down with Dana Han-Klein for a Google Talks chat about the film. They released today a sneak peek, and the full interview will be published after the film release, to avoid spoilers. Check it:
Jessica and Guillermo visited this morning two Univision tv shows, Despierta America and Un Nuevo Dia, as part of the Crimson Peak promotion. I have added over 100+ HQ pictures in our gallery.
The waiting is almost over! Crimson Peak will be on theaters this Friday (16) on USA – and some countries to be released two days earlier – and we’re about to see Lady Lucille Sharpe, finally!
While waiting, check in our gallery some new promotional stills of the film, plus some related videos uploaded in our archive.
During the past month we had to deal multiple times with server moving and minor downtimes, so all major updates was postponed until we’re properly settled. Which we are now, so here’s the resumed updates.
Our gallery was updated with new promotional images, posters and related screen captures of The Martian. Also 20 related videos has been uploaded in our gallery, including the interview Jessica and Matt Damon did to Today Show last September 30.
The Martian is now in theaters, and it’s the #1 film in the world at the box office, crossing $119M as reported by Deadline. The film also is certified fresh at 93% positive reviews at Rotten Tomatoes.
Crimson Peak is featured on current issue of Mexican magazine Cine Premiere and the promotional images are to die for. Check digital scans added in our gallery, courtesy of our friend Gabby from tom-hiddleston.com.
A new interview with Jessica has been published on Time website, in which she talks about how to find sympathy for a devil, the movie’s revolutionary take on sex and why Crimson Peak will help make Hollywood a better place for women seeking out robust roles.
TIME: You decided to pursue the role of the villain Lucille instead of the heroine Edith when you were first presented with the script. Why?
Jessica Chastain: Mia is far better than I would have ever been in that role. I think she’s brilliant in the movie. When I read the script, I had never played a character like Lucille, and I wanted to explore that type of loneliness. It was just extreme loneliness. I wanted to find the compassion for this person who ends up doing these terrible things.
The character could have easily become an over-the-top Disney stepmother type of villain, but you feel compassion for her. How do you walk that line?
The thing about Guillermo, and what I love so much about his films, is that he has so much compassion and love for his monsters. When approaching the character, I knew I was going to be in really good hands because I wasn’t interested in just exploring evilness and darkness. That to me is very uninteresting, just as uninteresting as it would be to just explore light and goodness. I want to know what could happen to a person to behave in a way that would make them look like they were a monster.
It’s rare to see two female leads in a movie. Was that something that attracted you to the script?
I speak a lot about diversity, and I’m constantly looking for projects that have more than one point of view in them. I very rarely get to work with actors who are women. I had a great time on The Help. And when I read the script [for Crimson Peak] I was really pleased that there were these two fantastic female characters and that I would have scenes with another actress because that’s my really my desire—to work with as many different kinds of people as possible.
