First Look At Jessica Chastain In Crimson Peak

She's dressed to impress

Those who attended this year’s San Diego Comic-Con got a look at some elements from Guillermo del Toro’s new gothic horror Crimson Peak, mostly props and chunks of the set. Now we have a proper glimpse at one of the main characters, with a shot of Jessica Chastain in costume provided by The Film Stage.

Crimson Peak finds Mia Wasikowska as author Edith Cushing, who is freshly wed to the charming, heroic Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). She moves to live with him in the titular massive, crumbling family pile in Cumbria. But soon after she arrives, she discovers that her husband is not who he appears to be, and the house itself has some very dark secrets. That she didn’t realise this when she learned it was called “Crimson Peak” is, frankly, her own lookout.

Chastain plays Lady Lucille Sharpe, Sir Thomas’s sister, a woman who no doubt carries her fair share of dangerous mysteries swirling about her. She certainly doesn’t dress like someone who is all about a warm welcome.

With Charlie Hunnam, Burn Gorman, Doug Jones, Leslie Hope and Jim Beaver aboard, Crimson Peak will haunt our cinemas on October 16 next year.
