Guillermo del Toro

Del Toro in 2023 Guillermo del Toro Gómez (; born 9 October 1964) is a Mexican filmmaker. A recipient of three Academy Awards and three BAFTA Awards, his work has been characterized by a strong connection to fairy tales and horror, with an effort to infuse visual or poetic beauty in the grotesque. He has had a lifelong fascination with monsters, which he considers symbols of great power. He is also known for his use of insectile and religious imagery, his themes of Catholicism, anti-fascism, and celebrating imperfection, underworld motifs, practical special effects, and dominant amber lighting.

Throughout his career, del Toro has shifted between Spanish-language films—such as ''Cronos'' (1993), ''The Devil's Backbone'' (2001), and ''Pan's Labyrinth'' (2006)—and English-language films, including ''Mimic'' (1997), ''Blade II'' (2002), ''Hellboy'' (2004) and its sequel ''Hellboy II: The Golden Army'' (2008), ''Pacific Rim'' (2013), ''Crimson Peak'' (2015), ''The Shape of Water'' (2017), ''Nightmare Alley'' (2021), and ''Pinocchio'' (2022).

As a producer or writer, he worked on the films ''The Orphanage'' (2007), ''Don't Be Afraid of the Dark'' (2010), ''The Hobbit'' film series (2012–2014), ''Mama'' (2013), ''The Book of Life'' (2014), ''Pacific Rim: Uprising'' (2018), ''Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark'' (2019), and ''The Witches'' (2020). In 2022, he created the Netflix anthology horror series ''Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities'', featuring a collection of classical horror stories.

With Chuck Hogan, he co-authored ''The Strain'' trilogy of novels (2009–2011), later adapted into a comic-book series (2011–15) and a live-action television series (2014–17). With DreamWorks Animation and Netflix, he created the animated franchise ''Tales of Arcadia'', which includes the series ''Trollhunters'' (2016–18), ''3Below'' (2018–19), and ''Wizards'' (2020), and the sequel film ''Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans'' (2021).

Del Toro is close friends with fellow Mexican filmmakers Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro G. Iñárritu, and they are collectively known as "The Three Amigos of Cinema". He was included in ''Time'' magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018, and he received a motion picture star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019. Provided by Wikipedia
