First trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape of Water’

20 July 2017 2:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s next film, which is set for a December release, The Shape of Water, which looks remarkably like a cross between Hellboy’s Abe Sapien and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (a film incidentally del Toro expressed an interest in remaking). The film stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer, Nick Searcy and Doug Jones.

From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

The Shape of Water is set for release on December 8th. »

First Trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Merman Fairy Tale ‘The Shape of Water’ Debuts (Watch)

19 July 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sally Hawkins is at the center of the otherworldly first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” portraying a lonely janitor at a government laboratory who befriends an aquatic man in a tank played by Doug Jones.

Set in 1963, the trailer portrays Hawkins’ Elisa as a mute woman — trapped in a life of silence and isolation — whose  life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (played by Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

“If I told you about her — the princess without a voice — what would I say?” a narrator asks at the beginning of the trailer.

“When he looks at me, he doesn’t know how I am incomplete,” Hawkins says through sign language, translated by Richard Jenkins’ character. “He sees me as I am.”

Michael Shannon portrays a scientists studying Jones’ character who declares, “We need to take it apart and learn how it works.”

The Shape of Water officially rated R, Guillermo del Toro says it’s not a horror

3 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guillermo del Toro has announced on Twitter that his latest film titled The Shape of Water has received an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. The rating falls in line with most of the auteur’s previous works and he seemingly has no desire to cut the film down to PG-13.

He also clarified the genre of the film, stating that it is not straight up horror but rather a “bit of a fairy tale” and a “fable set in early 1960’s America”. From the sounds of his tweet, the movie sounds similar to Pan’s Labyrinth and his most recent directorial effort Crimson Peak.

The Shape of Water got an "R" rating from MPAA last week.

Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) May 2, 2017

No. The Shape of Water is Not a horror movie. It's a bit of a fairy tale story – a fable set in early 1960's America. »

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. »

Doug Jones reveals plot details for Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water

10 January 2017 3:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guillermo del Toro currently in post-production on his next film The Shape of Water, his frequent collaborator Doug Jones has been chatting to Collider about the project, during which he revealed a few plot details for the fantasy adventure, which has been described as “an other-worldly story set against the backdrop of Cold War era America”.

“It’s a 1963 drama—it’s not a sci-fi [film], it’s not a genre film, but I am a creature in it,” said Jones. “I’m a fish man that’s kind of a one-off. I’m an enigma, nobody knows where I came from; I’m the last of my species so I’m like a natural anomaly. And I’m being studied and tested in a U.S. government facility in 1963, so the Russian Cold War is on, the race for space is on, so there’s all that backdrop and that undercurrent. »
