The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s new film The Shape Of Water is finally here, and it’s a beautiful thing. It does also feel a bit spoilery (there’s a lot in here), so you may want to skip it and take our word for it that it is stunning. The choice is yours…
Yeah, so there’s a fair amount that feels rather third-act-y, but my goodness, this looks wonderful. It’s the 1950s creature feature love story that we always wanted by didn’t realise, and that cast!
The Shape Of Water stars Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Nick Searcy, Lauren Lee Smith, David Hewlett and John Kapelos.
“An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.
