Legendary Pictures discuss Crimson Peak, Krampus and Warcraft

Legendary Pictures addressed the upcoming films, Crimson Peak, Krampus, and next year’s Warcraft at Comic Con on Saturday.

Director Guillermo del Toro refrained from using profanity during the Crimson Peak presentation after Legendary CEO Thomas Tull took a poll asking the audience the number of times it thinks Del Toro will use the F-word.

Del Toro was joined by his cast; Mia Wasikowska, Thomas Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain.

Del Toro’s inspiration for the film came from pursuing to create a film intended for and about strong women.

The cast commemorated the set of the film and it’s amazing detail.

The house in the film is haunted and lets out pent-up its secrets when Wasikowska (Edith) enters.

Del Toro touched on rewriting Hiddleston’s part after Benedict Cumberbatch decided to withdraw from the film.

A Crimson Peak attraction of Allerdale Hall will be constructed this year at Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Studios Hollywood.

The gothic romance, Crimson Peak, opens this October.

Next up was Krampus, a dark and spooky Christmas film with a comedic twist.

Director Michael Dougherty, Adam Scott and Toni Collette took their seats on the panel.

The creature of Krampus is a scary and mythical version of Santa Claus.

To imitate Santa, Saturday’s footage played to Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.

Instead of giving a lump of coal, the Krampus kidnaps and punishes children.

In the video shown, a child is pulled up a chimney by the Krampus’ tail.

Besides the long clawed hand and tail, the Krampus is not fully shown in the footage.

The film is set to come out this December.

Last but not least is the highly anticipated Warcraft.

The panel was packed, more chairs had to be brought out to fit 11 cast members.

Footage of each character was shown along with images of the characters.

Paula Patton (Garnoa) talked about her role, describing her character as not fitting in with either world.

Ramin Djawadi (Iron Man, Pacific Rim) wrote the score for the film, which  is set to appear next summer.
