He helmed the comic-book adaptations Blade II and Hellboy before directing Pan’s Maze, a well-known, artfully identified movie that was chosen for a Foreign Language Movie Academy Award.
Del Toro also directed the action blockbuster Pacific Rim and the haunted house/period piece Crimson Peak, before receiving his very first Oscar win for Finest Director in 2018 for the sci-fi love The Shape of Water.
