Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s “monstrous exhibit” will be making its only appearance in Canada at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The museum retrospective titled “Guillermo del Toro: At Home With Monsters” takes a look into the director’s creative process behind his horror films, which include “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Biutiful,” “Hellboy,” and his most recent, “Crimson Peak.”

The exhibit was organized by the AGO in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Curated by LACMA’s Britt Salvesen and MIA’s Matthew Welch, the retrospective reportedly carries up to 500 memorabilia objects including costumes, sculptures, paintings and more.

“Del Toro believes we need monsters,” said curator Jim Shedden. “For him, we all have the same imperfections as monsters, whether we see them or not,” he added. Shedden mentioned that while del Toro shows empathy for vulnerable monsters, “he is absolutely fascinated by the horrific and invulnerable ones.”

“At Home with Monsters” opens in Los Angeles on July 31, 2016 and in the Canada from September 30, 2017 to January 7, 2018.

In other news, the Mexican director’s avid fans are still hoping to hear good news about the “Pacific Rim” sequel, which he revealed in January is still going to happen. del Toro took to Twitter to refute the sequel's fate, writing "‘Pac Rim 2’ cancelled? Don't believe everything you read. It's still going and I'll remain w it in one way or another!”

Following that information, del Toro also updated fans on the status of "Pacific Rim 2," saying the script and budget had been submitted.

In addition, Netflix and DreamWorks Animation also announced that del Toro would be leading a new animated series based on his "Trollhunters" novel, which the studio described as a show that “will unleash a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.”
