New 'Book of Life' Trailer Introduces Love Triangle, Giant Sword (Video)
Death is just a minor setback for the heroes of producer Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming animated film Book of Life.
The latest trailer for the film shows Manolo (Diego Luna) competing with Joaquin (Channing Tatum) in a slap fight for Maria's (Zoe Saldana) affections. And if Manolo thought that was rough, wait until he journeys through three mystical realms and faces, among other things, a set of crushing boulders with minds of their own.
The expansive voice cast includes Christina Applegate, Ice Cube, Ron Perlman and Cheech Marin. Jorge Gutierrez directed and co-wrote the script.
20th Century Fox releases the film Oct. 17, just in time for Halloween.
