The Book of Life is definitely on my list of films to keep an eye out for. Produced by Guillermo Del Toro and directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez (who created one of my favorite past Nickelodeon cartoons, El Tigre, which Book of Life‘s art style stems from) the film celebrates the Mexican holiday, Dia de Muertos. Starring Diego Luna (as Manolo!), Channing Tatum, and Zoe Saldana in a love triangle as they’re messed with by gods.
The only problem I have with its trailer is its choice of music. No Spanish flair at all. Either way, it all looks really, really good. And the final gag got me, I’ll be honest. The Book of Life hits theaters October 17th, in time for Halloween.[via JoBlo]
