12 Stunning Alternate Posters for Guillermo del Toro Films

When I think of writer/director Guillermo del Toro, I find that I hold his films to a different standard. It’s not necessarily higher, although I love pretty much everything he’s put out, it’s just that I know a film from him is going to be something totally different from anything that the movie world usually offers forth. His ability to blend fantasy (or sci-fi) with horror while still placing the utmost importance upon emotion and mood is unbelievable, resulting in films that are thrilling, magical, otherworldly, and, perhaps most important, relatable. For all the surreal and imagination that goes into his movies, they remain grounded in human experiences such as loss, grief, desperation, love, and want for acceptance. They’re the kind of movies that, when the end credits begin to roll, you feel something that many other films don’t offer.

Going into a Guillermo del Toro film is like walking through a portal into another world, one that will challenge viewers but never with malice. Rather, it is often with love that del Toro’s films tell their stories, offering messages of hope and determination. And even if there is suffering during those times, there is always something beautiful to be found. It’s a world where emotions that are usually conflicting find themselves working in tandem, which is why I cherish every offering he puts out.

Considering how visually spectacular his films are, it makes sent that artists have taken to creating alternate posters for his films that elicit the same kind of wonderment and awe. So, I gathered several examples from various artists, each of whom has created something magnificent. Head on down below to see the world of Guillermo del Toro as seen through the eyes of others.
