Watch my video review, above, of ‘The Book of Life,’ which debuts this weekend. The film is directed (and co-written) by Jorge R. Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, in a project very far from del Toro’s frequent horror and science-fiction work.
The great voice cast includes Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube and several other notables. Douglas Langdale was co-writer, and other producers alongside del Toro are Aaron Berger, Brad Booker and Carina Schulze. Fox is handling distribution in the United States.
