So in my line of work I have a lot of crazy friends involved in a lot of crazy projects, and I’m going to share a bit of the fun with you today. I have a friend working on Crimson Peak, the new Guillermo del Toro movie coming out Oct 16th, and I mentioned that just about every SFF and dark fantasy artist I know was super excited by the trailers and the glimpses of how amazing the designs were, and wanted to know more. She not only gave me a sneak peek of some spreads from the art book (I know we’re all addicted to art-of-the-movie books here on Muddy Colors) and a special prize: A set of tickets for advance screenings in NYC and LA to give away.

First, did you see the new international trailer? You get to see more of the set and costume design than ever before:


And next, some art book porn for you: Crimson Peak: The Art of Darkness

Along with some of my favorite stills:

And of course, there’s Mondo posters! By Daniel Danger (in two colors) and Guy Davis:

I just cherry picked my favorite art from what I was given, but you can see tons more at the official Crimson Peak website.
And last, but far from least, I have 2 pairs of tickets to give away. Two for NYC and two for LA. 
NYC is Wed Oct 7th, 8pm, 34th Street AMC Loews
LA is Thurs Oct 8th, 8pm, AMC Burbank 16 on Palm Ave
Now listen carefully, I know you guys are excited, but this is important. IF you can make one of the 2 dates/times below then comment below with your name, your contact email, and which (NY or LA) screening you want to attend. Please do not enter unless you are sure you can go. Tickets are not transferable, there will be a guest list. And plan to get there early – it’s going to be a mob scene, so plan on lining up, because I am not going to be there and I cannot guarantee your entry personally.
Monday Oct 5th at 5pm I will randomly pick one person to win each pair of tickets and email you directly.
Sadly I will have to wait til October 16th to see it, and I generally hate scary movies, but if they’re going to be this gorgeous, then I’ll brave it! Good Luck Everyone.
