The Book of Life Trailer

The Book of Life is an upcoming animated film produced by visual movie master Guillermo del Toro. And this movie definitely has a unique visual style to it. It reminds me a lot of the old LucasArts game Grim Fandango, which incidentally was also about Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead.

From the iTunes description:

"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."

The movie stars the voice talents of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, and Christina Applegate. And it opens October 17th just in time for Halloween.

And for reference, here's a trailer for Grim Fandango.
