Broadsheet Trailer Park: Crimson Peak

What you may need to know:

1. In the aftermath of a family tragedy, young author Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is dislocated to an eerie house that breathes and bleeds, and soon discovers that her new husband Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston) is not who he appears to be.

2. Guillermo del Toro’s back to his creepy best after the giant robot rock ‘em sock ‘em headscratcher, Pacific Rim (2013).

3. This looks very Tim Burton. Good Tim Burton, not bad Tim Burton.

4. Del Toro wrote the script for Crimson Peak after Pan’s Labyrinth in 2006, but Hellboy II (2008) and a fruitless two-year journey to Middle Earth got in the way.

5. Coincidentally, Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam both auditioned for the role of Thor (2011) before Chris Hemsworth got the part.

6. That funereal PJ Harvey song playing over the trailer is her cover of Nick Cave’s Red Right Hand. This version was recorded for the second series of BBC’s Peaky Blinders. If you’re not up on Peaky Blinders, then you’re missing a treat.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: Bloody good.

Release Date:
October 16.

          It depends. Second series are generally rubbish, but you stick ’em out until they find their feet again
