The first trailer is out today for The Book of Life directed by Jorge Gutierrez (El Tigre) and produced at Reel FX.
The film’s visual style looks completely unique: a joyous assault of color, texture, and pattern—drenched in Mexican mythology and culture—and as close to an uncompromised personal vision as you’ll see in mainstream CG filmmaking.
It’ll be released by Fox in the U.S. on October 17th, 2014:
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.
