It was standing room only at last night’s AFI FEST 2012 gala presentation of RISE OF THE GUARDIANS at the world-famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater in the heart of Hollywood. A story of good versus evil and starring some of the most iconic figures in folklore history, the film had the audience of adults and kids completely hooked. Based on the Award-winning children’s book by WILLIAM JOYCE, produced by GUILLERMO DEL TORO and directed by PETER RAMSEY the all-star voice cast includes ALEC BALDWIN, CHRIS PINE, HUGH JACKMAN, ISLA FISHER and JUDE LAW.
Facing entertainment reporters at a recent Manhattan press conference a few days ago, producer GUILLERMO DEL TORO talked about one of the keys to the film’s success. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
