Guillermo Del Toro's 'Simpsons' Opening Is Mayhem/The Best

The only thing missing is Ron Perlman. Guillermo del Toro took time out of his busy schedule of thinking about monsters to think about monsters for The Simpsons. The result is the opening credits for this Sunday's Treehouse of Horror XXIV. This is absolutely all over the place in the best of ways and proof that del Toro needs to be given free reign over more cartoons. He could make The Flintstones a-mah-zing.

Guillermo del Toro Talks Us Through The 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

In case the robots housing monsters weren't clear enough the first time around. We were all treated yesterday to our first good look at robots housing giant monsters when the trailer for Pacific Rim premiered. Now that enough time to drool has passed, MTV caught up with Guillermo del Toro to get an explanation about what the trailer shows. Also to discuss del Toro's fondness for punching giant monsters with the aid of elbow rockets, and how the finished film makes this preview look like Howard's End. I don't recall the punches in Howard's End being this awesome.


Guillermo del Toro's 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' Trailer

Here comes the tickle monster! Miramax has released the trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a horror film remake written and co-produced by scare guru Guillermo del Toro. I saw this first at Comic-Con (don't be jealous, it doesn't suit you), and I'll admit, the last part made me jump in my seat. But I'm still totally 100% man. They also screened a clip that dealt with teeth and a hammer. Use your imagination. Nope, it was still cooler than that. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl who is sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, and if that wasn't bad enough, she discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own. It's not to be confused with the old Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" even though I'm sure you can find almost the exact story in the archives. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters January 21, 2011. Check out the trailer after the jump...

Robots House Giant Monsters In 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

Suck it, monsters! The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim has debuted and it is a real wake-up call for monsters from the deep. When gigantic creatures emerge from an intergalactic portal in the Pacific Ocean, they just assume that humans will let them destroy our best bridges and throw cars into the water. Think again, monsters. Little do they know that we possess the technology to make gigantic robot suits that will march right up to them and punch them in their monstrous faces. Didn't see that one coming, huh? Just wait until we figure out how to give swords to those robots. 'Merica!!


Further Proof That 'The Walking Dead' Pretty Much IS 'Toy Story'

How did we not see this sooner?! There's been a longstanding theory that The Walking Dead's Governor is essentially Toy Story 3's villainous Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear and AMC's zombie series has borrowed more than a few plot points from the Pixar film series. Today comes even more similarities! It's been awhile since I've watched the original Toy Story film, but thanks to the Internet, you can see that The Walking Dead BLATANTLY stole its opening titles from the beloved children's film. Wow. Despicable. Somebody's gonna get sued. How did we not see this sooner?!


Giant 'Pacific Rim' Monster Attacks The Heck Out Of San Francisco

Oakland just got sh*ttier. As if life in San Francisco weren't difficult enough with the high rents and modern times inciting the slow extermination of the city's bohemian roots and culture. Now they've got to worry about giant kaiju climbing from the ocean and trashing the place. If it's not one thing, it's another. The new viral clip for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim shows a giant monster destroying the Golden Gate Bridge and fighting jets via crappy news footage. And while we don't get a great peek at the monster or the giant mechanized robot suits that will be used to slay these Godzillas, it's enough to get everyone excited. Those monsters started this and mankind will finish it. That was our best bridge.


Universal Studios (Orlando) Adds A Duff Beer Garden And Lard Lad Donuts To Its Roster Of 'Simpsons' Eateries

The best thing in Florida since Limp Bizkit left. In case Luigi's Pizza, Krusty Burger, and Moe's Tavern aren't enough to satisfy your whimsical, fictional tastes while trolling around with the masses in Orlando, you can now open your refined palate to donuts and beer. Like a Rockefeller. The collection of eateries/drinkeries is known as Simpson Fast Food Boulevard, and it's a place I'm dying to see, and would undoubtedly be a place I would be dying to leave after about four minutes. Take a look!


'The Simpsons' Goes 'Game Of Thrones' (Video)

'The Simpsons' is awesome again, if only for a moment. With the second season premiere of Game of Thrones just four weeks away, our withdrawal is baying inside of us. We want it now and The Simpsons isn't doing anything to quell that hunger. Posted here is the entire intro to last night's episode that sends up the animation style used in Game of Thrones' opening credits. However, instead we travel to the "kingdoms" of Springfield. If only the entire episode parodied Game of Thrones. It would be The Simpsons first talked about show in eight years. Always good to see the monorail getting some use.
