Guillermo Del Toro is a very beloved director, but he hasn't quite transitioned into the award-winning, Oscar-worthy filmmaker yet. That could be changing later this year. His next movie, The Shape of Water, has just been given a very awards-friendly release date that seems to imply the studio thinks that this movie could be a contender this year. Additionally, the studio has released a full synopsis for the movie, which gives us a much better idea of what we can expect when the movie finally hits theaters this December.
Fox Searchlight will be distributing The Shape of Water, which will be taking place in America during the Cold War. The last time Guillermo Del Toro directed a period drama was back when he made Pan's Labyrinth, and that remains one of his most beloved and critically acclaimed features. So that bodes well for his upcoming movie. Here is the official »
Guillermo Del Toro has had to walk away from a couple of projects in recent years, so it’s a bit of a relief to get some news on a film—with Del Toro at the helm—that will see the theater light of day. Deadline reports the filmmaker’s The Shape Of Water has just caught a December 8 release date. Starring Del Toro’s scaly stalwart Doug Jones, The Shape Of Water is described as “an otherworldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.” Sally Hawkins costars as a lonely employee at a high-security government laboratory, who stumbles upon a “secret classified experiment” with her coworker, who will be played by Octavia Spencer. Jones will play the fish man who is being held at the facility, and with whom Hawkins’ character will fall in love.
Michael Shannon was cast in the film ...

Plentiful people have plentiful meetings about plentiful things. Most of them don't become news stories. But this is one of the exceptions: it turns out that Guillermo del Toro has had some sort of talks about working within the Star Wars universe.

"There are some [Star Wars] characters that are great and I have talked to [Lucasfilm president] Kathy Kennedy and [special effects genius/story man for Rogue One] John Knoll about some ideas, but I want to do my shit", del Toro revealed.
Indeed, del Toro always has plenty of his own projects bubbling away. It sounds like he's more interested in getting his own "shit" going »
You love Doug Jones' work. You may not recognize his name. You probably couldn't pick out his real face from a lineup. But trust us, you love Doug Jones' work. If you don't, it must mean you hate cinematic creatures. Jones is the remarkably talented actor who has helped bring to life impossible fantasies time and and time again. In Pan's Labyrinth he played the faun and the Pale Man. In Hellboy he was the aquatic hero Abe Sapien. He was a savior to mankind as the Silver Surfer in the Fantastic Four sequel, the freaky ice cream truck man in Legion, and the silent but deadly Gentleman in the iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Hush." Most recently you may have seen him as the titular bad guy in The Bye Bye Man, wherein he plays an enigmatic...

She may have finished up on The Walking Dead, but Sonequa Martin-Green will soon be back on our screens as the lead in CBS All Access’ hotly-anticipated Star Trek: Discovery, and the actress has been chatting to TV Line about the show, and how it will differ from previous iterations of the iconic sci-fi franchise.
“This iteration of Star Trek is going to have a different take than the others in the Star Trek canon,” said Martin-Green. “It’s going to be bigger, rawer and grittier… and the story’s going to build on itself. It’s going to be a tremendous journey. Since Star Trek has always been through the eyes of the captain, to be coming from [his second-in-command’s] mindset is going to be refreshing and challenging in ways that are very thrilling.”

Early last year, Legendary and Universal announced that Steven S. DeKnight, a former showrunner for “Daredevil,” was on board to direct “Pacific Rim: Uprising” a project many believed was dead. Now, in an interview with Collider, Guillermo del Toro revealed why he ended up not directing the sequel to his 2013 sci-fi monster movie.

“The timing started to suck,” the filmmaker said. “I had this little movie that I wanted to do —’The Shape of Water’— very, very much. At one point it was ‘Justice League Dark’ or ‘Pacific Rim,’ I said, ‘Let’s go to Pacific Rim.’ The reality is they said, ‘We’re gonna need to postpone,’ because they were changing hands—[‘Pacific Rim’ studio] Legendary was going to be sold to China, to a Chinese company [called the Wanda Group]. They said, ‘We’ve gotta wait nine months, »

If CBS was holding fire on announcing the true identity of Sonequa Martin-Green’s character in Star Trek: Discovery – turns out Lieutenant Commander Rainsford was merely a codename used during pre-production – then the show-stopping season 7 finale of The Walking Dead was the last domino to fall.
Fast forward to now and we know Martin-Green’s character to be First Officer Michael Burnham, lead protagonist of Discovery and the Number One to Jason Isaacs’ Captain Lorca. Little is currently known about CBS’ release plans for Star Trek: Discovery at the time of writing, but now that the network has lifted the lid on her character, Smg has offered up new details on the upcoming small screen revival, and why she considers it to be “bigger, rawer and grittier” than those Star Trek series that came before.
This iteration of Star Trek is going to have a different take than »

Although Dwight Schrute was more into bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica, Rainn Wilson has joined the cast of the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery TV show on CBS All Access. He will play conman Harry Mudd, a role originated by Roger C. Carmel, in the original Star Trek TV series. The newest installment of the Star Trek TV and film franchise, Star Trek: Discovery stars Jason Isaacs, Mary Wiseman, Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, James Frain, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif, Mary Chieffo, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, and Sam Vartholomeos.

Anyone who watched Star Trek: The Original Series knows the name Harry Mudd. Mudd was the galaxy's original snake-oil salesman (no, not literally), pestering Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in two episodes, Mudd's Women and I, Mudd. He was even brought back for The Animated Series in Mudd's Passion. In fact, Mudd is the only non-crew character to be featured in more than one episode of Tos. Being a fan favorite, it is not surprising that the current Star Trek powers-that-be would want to bring him back for Star Trek: Discovery.
Variety reports that Rainn Wilson -- Dwight from The Office -- has been cast in the role of Harry Mudd for Star Trek: Discovery, though it is unclear how many episodes he will appear in. Discovery is set ten years prior to the Enterprise's five-year mission, so Mudd is fair game. And, in a »
