a producer's name get top billing. All in all this is the director's film - but hey, we all 'know' Del Toro, right? I think it's a shame marketing has to rely on an existing Del Toro fan base rather than finding a new, unique way to promote the film. Will this look and feel like every other Del Toro film (ala Tim Burton, too) or is it different? Seeing his name is all over it I'd have to assume it'll feel like I'm watching one of his films. If not I'll be upset, right?

'Guillermo Del Toro presents' is going to sell more tickets than 'A Troy Nixey film'. Guillermo also co-wrote the film and is usually hands on when producing films so he does have a hand in the creative process.
And since when do films ever find a 'new, unique way to promote the film' Promoting a film is selling it to an audience. 9 times out of 10 Audiences go for something they know and are aware of. If it's a good film then putting Guillermo's name is bound to get more people to go watch it which is surely a good thing?
No way is Guillermo anything like Burton. Guillermo uses fantasy to tell interesting stories that look and feel different from each other. Burton does a cut and paste job with every film he makes. Twisted, deformed trees, Monochrome stripes, Danny Elfman score, Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp etc...

Completely agree. Promotion is about getting the film seen. When the director has made more of a name himself, then he can put up "from the director of ....."


Yeah, well, that's just your opinion, man.....

Better Get this Right. The Original's Brilliant! - 25/6/2011 5:51:20 PM

I always thought this TV cult horror movie would make a great Hollywood bockbuster, they better get it right. I'm a bit wary of them making Sally a little girl. It worked well enough with an adult. Looking forward to this though, as it's not stricktly a re-make, because the original was a made for TV movie. Sick of all the horror re-makes - but this should've been picked up years ago for the cinema/ Hollywood version. The kid looks like Katie Holmes real daughter LOL.
