Ahead of its release in the Fall, we’ve got a first trailer and selection of images from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming animated feature The Book of Life, which has been produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and marks the feature debut of animator and director Jorge R. Gutierrez…



From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez comes an animated comedy with a unique visual style. THE BOOK OF LIFE is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, THE BOOK OF LIFE encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.

Along with Diego Luna (Elysium), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street), The Book of Life features the voice talents of Danny Trejo (Machete), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Christina Applegate (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Ice Cube (21 Jump Street). The film is set for release on October 17th in North America and October 24th in the UK.
