Guillermo del Toro’s latest film, The Shape of Water, has a chance to be one of the best films of 2017. It’s already receiving great reviews from critics around the world, and it won the Best Picture award at the Venice Film Festival.
There is a lot happening in this red band trailer, but don’t worry about spoilers. It’s constructed in a way that leaves you feeling more confused than anything else. It’s hard to put the pieces together, unless you really study this trailer.
As mentioned in the title, Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer star in this fantasy/drama/love story. It’s set to hit theaters December 8, 2017, and you’ll probably want to watch it ’cause it’s most likely going to be nominated for some awards. You don’t want to be that person at the Oscar party who hasn’t watched any of the films nominated.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.”
