“Crimson Peak,” the 2015 gothic horror movie from the mind of Guillermo Del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”), released four new character posters at San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
The creepy blue and red portraits give each set of actors a characterization that’s almost like two sides of the same coin. Charlie Hunnam’s Dr. McMichael has angel wings, while Tom Hiddleston’s Thomas Sharpe has a skull. Mia Wasikowska’s Edith Cushing is a butterfly, while Jessica Chastain’s Lucille Sharpe is a moth.
The movie, due out in October, weaves the frightening romance of Edith, whose heart is stolen by a seductive stranger (Hiddleston). She is “swept away to his mansion atop a mountain made of blood-red clay; a place filled with secrets. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind ‘Crimson Peak.'”
