Guillermo del Toro Gómez is a Mexican film director, screenwriter, producer, and novelist.

In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as the gothic horror film The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth, and more mainstream American action movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II, the supernatural superhero film Hellboy, its sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and the science fiction monster film Pacific Rim.

In addition to his directing works, del Toro is a prolific producer, his producing works including acclaimed and/or successful films such as The Orphanage, Julia's Eyes, Biutiful, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss in Boots, and Mama.
