San Diego Comic Con: Crimson Peak (2015)

July 11, 2015: 

Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Guillermo brought Legendary's Crimson Peak to San Diego Comic Con. This was Tom's third year at SDCC but the first time he was there for a role other than Loki.

working the press line and interviews like a pro... 

Prior to the panel Legendary hosted a signing with Tom, Jessica, Mia, and Guillermo. 

The Legendary panel included the casts of Krampus, Crimson Peak, and Warcraft. 


During the panel Tom talked about how the set built for Crimson Peak was "jawdropping", "breathtaking", and the "most extraordinary set (he has) ever seen". Tom talks about working with Guillermo del Toro: "Guillermo has an enormous imagination, and getting to live inside that imagination with all of his detail and rigor and precision was a huge pleasure. And I've never been teased so much on set by another director but I liked it." Also, Tom teases that "the last act of the film is an emotional rollercoaster. It exists at a very intense pitch and we all had to kind of hold hands and battle through it."

The day finished up with the Nerdist Podcast - which is basically just 10 straight minutes of Guillermo teasing Tom - enjoy. 


This was a very refreshing break from the black/navy casual outfits or suits we usually see Tom Hiddleston wear. Tom debuted an almost entirely new outfit with a Richard James Linen Blazer, Reiss vneck shirt, and Reiss Bennett chinos. Along with vintage shoes first seen in a photoshoot with Matthias Vriens McGrath. 

The Richard James Blazer was such a good look, Benedict Cumberbatch wore the same one to San Diego Comic Con the next year.
