First Trailer & Poster for Guillermo del Toro's Animated 'Book of Life'
Following yesterday's first look photos, the first official trailer and poster for the animated film The Book of Life from producer Guillermo del Toro have arrived. The story follows the journey of Manolo (Diego Luna), an aspiring musician struggling with pleasing his family and winning over the love of his life (Zoe Saldana). There's some truly stunning animation on display here, like a mix of the world of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, but in the style of the Day of the Dead celebration. Channing Tatum seems a bit out of place as a rival romancer, but this still looks like an original adventure for everyone. Watch it!
Here's the first trailer for Jorge R. Gutierrez's The Book of Life, originally from Apple:

The Book of Life is directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, who co-wrote the film with Douglas Langdale ("Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness"), and produced by Guillermo del Toro. The animated film tells the story of Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man torn between fulfilling the expectations of his father (Hector Elizondo) and grandfather (Danny Trejo) to become a bullfighter and following his heart by becoming a musician. Before choosing a path, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds, where he must face his greatest fears. Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube and Placido Domingo also lend their voices to the Fox Animation film which 20th Century Fox sends to theaters October 17th. Interested?
