The Book of Life

"I'll do anything to be with Maria." Though we're not accustomed to a filmmaker like Guillermo del Toro venturing into kids territory, the story at the center of The Book of Life certainly doesn't seem like a typical fairytale, at least when it comes to the vibrant style of the animation. Jorge R. Gutierrez is behind the new film which follows a young man named Manolo (Diego Luna) struggling to win over the love of his life and please his family. But things get complicated when a wager between the gods of the dead over who will win the hand of Maria (Zoe Saldana) forces Manolo into an adventure through fantastical worlds.

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?
