First trailer and poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak

Crimson Peak (teaser poster)Since it was announced, Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak has been largely shrouded in mystery (as it should be). Universal and Legendary Pictures have now released a teaser trailer for the gothic romance, which probably offers more questions than answers.

In an effort to escape her past following a family tragedy, aspiring author Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is swept away by a mysterious outsider, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). She moves in with her new husband, living in a mansion that breathes, bleeds… and remembers.

Played to the sound of PJ Harvey’s cover of Red Right Hand, the trailer is mysterious and chilling while looking absolutely gorgeous, with costumes designed by Kate Hawley (of Edge of Tomorrow) and incredible production design. A good chunk of the budget was used to build the house seen in the film, which was three stories tall and even had a working elevator. Click play below to view the trailer.

Crimson Peak co-stars Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver and opens in the UK and US on 16 October 2015.
