“It’s a gothic romance,” he said, adding that Legendary allowed him to make it the way he wanted: R-rated, violent and beautiful.
Del Toro then showed the very first look at the film, still 18 months away from release. The creepy footage showed stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Charlie Hunnam slinking around an old Victorian mansion.

“Houses as old as this one become in time a living thing,” star Tom Hiddleston said in voiceover. “It may have timber for bones but windows for eyes, and sitting here all alone, it can go slowly bad. It starts holding on to things. Keeping them alive when they shouldn’t be. Some of them good. Some bad. Some should never be spoken about again.
The cast was not present, but Del Toro promised he’d come back in 2015 and bring his stars with him.
“Next year you’ll get Tom f—ing Hiddleston.”
Del Toro ended his segment by sending the crowd into a rapture once more, urging them to show Legendary how much they would like to see him work on certain dream films. He named Hellboy 3 (to insane applause) and At the Mountains of Madness (strong applause, but not at Hellboy levels.)
Del Toro closed with a line proving no one can make the f-word sound as charming as him: “Now, it’s over. Thank you very f—ing much.”
