Guillermo del Toro Exclusive Video Interview Backstage at the Saturn Awards

     June 28, 2008

A few days ago, I posted an interview I did with Guillermo del Toro on the red carpet at the Saturn Awards here in Los Angeles. While that interview covered a lot of ground on both The Hobbit movies and Hellboy 2 and 3, I’ve got another interview with the brilliant filmmaker to share with all of you.

After Guillermo won the lifetime achievement award at the Saturn’s, he came backstage and spoke to a few journalists about a ton of subjects. As always, I listed what we talked about above each part…that way you can watch the parts that interest you.

Highlights of the interview include his thoughts on the Death movie, what he has to do by December of this year, Hellboy 2 talk, more Hobbit talk, will he ever make the Lovecraft films, and I even asked him what his favorite Lord of the Rings movie was.

If you’re a fan of the brilliant filmmaker, I promise you’ll love the interview. And while you may think this is it…I still have more video interviews to post from the Saturn Awards. Keep checking back!
