Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities: Limited Edition


For more than two decades, writer-director Guillermo del Toro has mapped out a territory in the popular imagination that is uniquely his own. From his first feature-length film, the modern classic Cronos, to his best-selling novels, to his latest movie Pacific Rim, del Toro has proven himself to be a one-of-a-kind creative visionary able to bring his singular sensibility equally to Hollywood blockbusters such as Hellboy and to more personal projects such as the Oscar–winning Pan’s Labyrinth.

A spectacular limited edition of Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities—ingeniously designed in a partitioned, two-drawer replica of a cabinet and featuring never-before-released artwork and a trio of custom components drawn from his films.

Reflective of the genius of del Toro himself, this specially designed limited edition is encased in a cabinet with partitions and a secret compartment that holds the book. Deluxe in size, Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: Limited Edition features high-quality matte art paper and debossing.

Each limited edition ($750) is signed by del Toro, and includes four never-before-released original art prints, three custom reproductions of iconic props from his movies: Professor Broom’s rosary from Hellboy, the Cronos scarab, and the bone amulet from Hellboy; a replica of a page from the Cronos device instruction manual; four cards reproducing artwork from The Book of Crossroads in Pan’s Labyrinth; and a Certificate of Authenticity.

An essential keepsake for all del Toro fans, this extraordinary collection reproduces the notes, drawings, creatures, and ideas of things to come that fill Guillermo del Toro’s fabled illustrated notebooks. An in-depth interview with writer and filmmaker Marc Scott Zicree explores del Toro’s reigning themes and signature motifs, as well as the literary references, old films, and mythological figures that inspire him. Revealing the acclaimed writer, director, artist, and producer’s private reveries as never before, Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: Limited Edition is a unique record of a truly arresting imagination.

This book will be a visual treasure trove for del Toro fans, as readers get a look at reproductions of his actual journal pages, filled with his handwriting, illustrations, notes in Spanish and English, as well as new annotations that add context and clarity.

Latest Poster For Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim

Legendary Entertainment has released a poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim that features the armored Jaeger robots assembling to take on a Kaiju threat.

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12, Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Hero Complex Film Festival 2013 Will Feature Appearances By Guillermo del Toro, Frank Darabont, Roland Emmerich & More

Visionary genre talents Guillermo del Toro, Frank Darabont, Roland Emmerich, John Carpenter and Chris Carter will be among the special guests at the fourth annual Hero Complex Film Festival, set to take place May 10-12 at the Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood.

The festival will open May 10 with a double feature from writer-director Carpenter — a 25th anniversary screening of “They Live” and a 35th anniversary screening of his landmark horror film “Halloween.” The always candid and entertaining Carpenter will appear in person between the films to discuss his career, which has produced genre favorites such as “Assault on Precinct 13,” “Escape From New York,” “The Thing,” “Big Trouble in Little China,” “Starman” and many more.

On May 11, writer-director Darabont will be on hand for an afternoon screening of his 2007 Stephen King adaptation “The Mist,” the riveting tale of a strange storm that settles over a New England town and forever changes the fortunes of the people trapped in its midst.

Del Toro is set to take the stage the evening of May 11 between a rare theatrical presentation of his 2001 ghost story “The Devil’s Backbone” and a screening of his Oscar-winning fantasy “Pan’s Labyrinth.” The busy director is preparing to return to the world of smaller-budget thrills with his upcoming Victorian-era tale “Crimson Peak,” but next up for Del Toro is his massive robots-versus-kaiju movie “Pacific Rim,” which storms into the multiplex July 12.

May 12 will bring more out-of-this-world adventures with a matinee showing of “Independence Day” with director Emmerich. The filmmaker, whose credits also include “The Patriot” and “Anonymous” in addition to “Stargate,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “2012,” among others, is set to return to the big screen with a new summer spectacle film in “White House Down,” starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, due June 28.

Closing out the festival will be a special 20th anniversary tribute to “The X-Files” with Carter, the show’s creator. We’ll screen three fan-favorite episodes of the landmark series that premiered back in 1993 — the show’s pilot and two stand-alone installments, “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” and “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space.”

Tickets are available now for $20 per event, with a limited number of special festival passes available for $50. Los Angeles Times members receive a 50% discount
