Guillermo del Toro’s last five films have been:
1. A dark fairy tale as a metaphor for the effects of war on children, set in the midst of the Spanish Civil War
2. A superhero movie that features a war between mankind and magical creatures
3. An action movie where the heroes have to share their minds and bond emotionally so they can punch aliens from the sea better. Also Charlie Day is a scientist.
4. Basically what would happen if all three Bronte sisters got hammered and wrote a book with Lord Byron.
and 5. An adorable woman falls in love with a fish man. Not a merman. A FISH MAN.
No one in Hollywood is having more fun.
