The first look at the director’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury‘s dystopian classic “Fahrenheit 451” is here, and it’s enough to have us feeling particularly fiery.

We Likely Won’t See Zod Or Lex Luthor In Supergirl Season 3

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

So far, Supergirl has done a fine job when it comes to adapting a wide array of villains from comics to screen, sometimes feeling like a live action answer to Superman: The Animated Series. And while some baddies to exist within this universe are seemingly being introduced for the first time (Bizarro, Parasite, Metallo and Mr. Mxyzptlk immediately come to mind), there are some major players who have obviously been left to Kara’s Boy Scout of a cousin.

One such example is that of Zod, whom we saw appear in the season 2 finale as a hallucination of Clark’s. As it turns out, this was more so a nod to all this version of the Man of Steel has gone through, and it sounds like we shouldn’t expect Mark Gibbon to reprise the role anytime soon.

Here’s what Andrew Kreisberg had to say on that front, according »

Trailer Watch: Sally Hawkins Stuns in Other-Worldly Fairy Tale “The Shape of Water”

5 hours ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Shape of Water

“If I told you about her, the princess without voice, what would I say?” So begins the first trailer for “The Shape of Water.” The so-called “princess” in question is Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a lonely and isolated woman who works at in a hidden, high-security government laboratory.

Despite her exciting-sounding job, the spot suggests that Elisa’s life is really quite mundane. She wakes up, polishes her shoes, clocks into work, cleans the lab, and wakes up the next day to do the exact same things. But all of that changes when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a huge secret — what we’re told “may very well be the most sensitive asset ever to be housed” in the facility.

Set against the backdrop of Cold War era U.S. circa 1963, “The Shape of Water” centers on the unlikely connection forged by the “asset” — a mysterious creature being held captive in the lab for classified experiments— and Elisa.

The trailer reveals that Elisa is “mute and can hear everything,” and it’s clear that her relationship with the creature transcends language. “When he looks at me, he doesn’t know how I am incomplete,” she explains via sign language. “He sees me as I am.” But the creature is in great danger. A lab employee (Michael Shannon) insists that he needs to “take it apart to learn how it works.”

Vanessa Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” “Hope Springs”) co-wrote “The Shape of Water” with its director, Guillermo del Toro (“Crimson Peak,” “Pan’s Labyrinth”). The fairy tale hits theaters December 8.

Guillermo Del Toro returns to the fairy tale realm with the first trailer for The Shape of Water

11 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s quirky romantic fantasy drama, The Shape of Water has arrived with Sally Hawkins taking centre stage portraying her affection for a sea creature.

Set in the backdrop of the Cold War in 1963, Hawkins plays Elisa, a mute janitor working in a government laboratory who sparks up a heroic friendship which a fish like man herself and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover in a secret lab on the grounds of the facility.

Until that is, Michael Shannon’s unpleasant evil scientist Strickland has other plans for the creature as he plans to kill the being to find out what it is and how it works.

Hawkins, who shines in a quirky role, plays a timid sweet woman, similar to her upcoming role in Maudie –  Starting out the trailer in a groundhog day state, the trailer plays out in the same way »

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

12 hours ago | 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. »

The Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupThe Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupAmanda Wood7/19/2017 3:33:00 Pm

Today was a great day for cool movies that we almost forgot existed. Luckily, The Snowman and The Shape of Water both released trailers today that quickly reminded us both of their existence and how excited we are for their releases.

The Snowman comes from Tomas Alfredson, who brought us such high-intensity gems as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let the Right One In. It stars the always-excellent Michael Fassbender as a detective searching for an elusive serial killer who finds gruesomely creative ways to use the winter landscape as a tableau in which to display his victims. Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Chloe Sevigny, and Val Kilmer round out the cast. Catch The Snowman in Cineplex theatres October 20th. »

Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape Of Water Takes Filmmaker Back To Dark Fairy Tales

19 July 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has certainly had an interesting career.  He’s one who has had his films deeply embedded in horror aspects. Looking back at some of his early work like Cronos, it was clear the man had a penchant for the macabre, and it served him quite well. Del Toro went on to helm such films as Blade II, and perhaps most notably, Pan’s Labyrinth.

Pan’s Labyrinth was a defining piece of work. While Blade II was certainly a big hit when it came out in theaters, not many thought to look behind the curtain of the film itself. Blade II allowed him to move on to Hellboy, which gave him more mainstream attention, but with Pan’s Labyrinth, it finally seemed like we had a grip over what his style was capable of. Set in 1940s span, the film was a dark fairy tale that »

First Full Trailer for Guillermo del Toro's New Film 'The Shape of Water'

19 July 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This creature is intelligent... capable of understanding emotions." Fox Searchlight has revealed the first official trailer for Guillermo del Toro's new film, titled The Shape of Water. This fairy tale romance set in the 1960s at a secret government laboratory stars Sally Hawkins as a lonely, mute woman who discovers a classified "experiment" and falls in love with him. Doug Jones co-stars as the creature, which makes me think you could almost call this a Hellboy prequel about Abe Sapien specifically. It kind of has that vibe. The excellent cast includes Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, Lauren Lee Smith, and John Kapelos. This looks really wonderful - it has that iconic Guillermo del Toro design to it, along with a nice mix of feelings ranging from mystery to romance to drama. I'm sold already. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, »

Coming Distractions: Wade into the first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape Of Water

19 July 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Although Guillermo Del Toro recently revealed that the real reason for his Pacific Rim 2 departure was the rather prosaic “scheduling issues,” the film he made in the interim is anything but. Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for The Shape Of Water, an otherworldly romance directed and co-written by Del Toro. The film stars Sally Hawkins as Elisa, a lonely, mute woman who’s on the cleaning staff at a covert government facility run by Michael Shannon’s Strickland. Elisa’s daily routine, which the trailer perfectly captures in all its humdrum detail, and her life are upended when she connects with the aquatic creature (Del Toro repertory player Doug Jones) being studied at the lab. Their unexpected romance goes over poorly, even with Elisa’s otherwise supportive neighbor (Richard Jenkins), and it’s not long before Strickland wants to gut the poor creature.
