It is very early in the fall movie season, but that means we are starting to see some potential Oscar contenders emerge. A few movies have been getting a ton of awards season buzz on the festival circuit already, with Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water being one of the most discussed and critically-praised movies making the rounds thus far. And it just so happens that the movie features a crazy sex scene.
Warning: spoilers ahead for The Shape of Water. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Doug Jones, who plays the fish monster in question, spoke about The Shape of Water and the bizarre sex scene. Jones has worked with Guillermo Del Toro frequently in the past, portraying Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies, in addition to having parts in Pan's Labyrinth and Crimson Peak. Despite their excellent established relationship, Del Toro was hesitant when it came »
Will a Fishman sweep the Oscars? That's the buzz around Hollywood as more and more people get a look at Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water. A new R-rated red band trailer has arrived, and it unleashes the monster at the heart of this tale in its full glory. There is no mystery left in discovering what it looks like once you buy the ticket. Which is a shame, but that's the way these things work nowadays.
Some wondered why The Shape of Water needed to be R-Rated in the first place. There is a great scene between bad guy Michael Shannon and star Sally Hawkins that is suitable for open-minded families with a sense of humor, but goes just a little above the call of a PG-13 rating. It looks like a scene that will be cheered by crowds in a large theater, and it would have been shameful to cut. »
Director Guillermo Del Toro has always been a filmmaker that a great many people love, but it feels like he hasn't ever put every piece of the puzzle together in order to get him the awards season love he deserves. Until now. His latest movie, The Shape of Water, recently screened for the first time and critics are praising it as a total masterpiece.
The Shape of Water premiered at Venice recently and everyone who has seen it seems to love it. Even though only a small number of critics have reviewed the movie, it looks like this could be one of the movies that the Academy will be paying some attention to later this year. Currently, with 16 reviews counted, the movie has a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Here's what The Hollywood Reporter had to say about the movie.
"Centered on an exquisite performance from Sally Hawkins that conveys both delicacy and strength, »

Guillermo del Toro has a new movie, which on its own is very exciting. Plus the trailer makes it look amazing, sort of like a cross between Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth. Well, it's time to raise your anticipation even further, becauese The Shape of Water just premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and the response is overwhelmingly positive. Del Toro has been up and down with critical favor throughout his career, but more than half of his features as a director are Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and his average review score is 77.8%. The Shape of Water has a unanimously favorable 100% score right out of the gate, and we can assume it will remain one of his higher-rated efforts. Here is what critics are saying in reviews...

Look, I love Guillermo del Toro as much as the next guy. He's funny, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and his best films - like Pan's Labyrinth - are some of the best films ever made. Even his lesser films (like Mimic) have charm and craft to them. However, having said that, I originally had no interest in his stop-motion Pinocchio film. Not saying I thought it would be bad, or that I wouldn't seek it out at some point,... Read More »

In my conversation with Fernando Trueba at the W Hotel Union Square in New York, he paid tribute to Emilio Ruiz del Río, who also worked with Stanley Kubrick (Spartacus), David Lean (Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago), Nicholas Ray (King Of Kings), John Milius (Conan The Barbarian), and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth). Fernando's latest, The Queen Of Spain (La Reina De España) stars Penélope Cruz who was also his The Girl Of Your Dreams (La Niña De Tus Ojos) with Antonio Resines, Santiago Segura, Rosa Maria Sardà, Jorge Sanz, Jesús Bonilla, and Loles León, who all return here.

A 60s classic is about to get the remake treatment from one of Hollywood's modern visionaries. Guillermo Del Toro, the man behind movies like Pacific Rim and Pan's Labyrinth, is reportedly set to tackle the 1966 sci-fi adventure The Fantastic Voyage as his next project. According to a new report, filming on the remake is set to being in Toronto this January, which means that Del Toro isn't going to be moving from The Shape of Water right into a presumably massive production.
The news comes courtesy of Omega Underground who report that 20th Century Fox is hoping to roll cameras on their remake of Fantastic Voyage, a movie they've been planning for quite some time, early next year. It was reported back in January of this year by The Hollywood Reporter that Guillermo Del Toro was in talks to helm the remake for Fox, but no confirmation was ever made. »
There are a lot of cinematic universes kicking around Hollywood right now, but most of them aren't doing so well or, at the very least, they aren't really ready to actually hit theaters yet.

Now, mastermind James Wan, who directed The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, has provided a massive update on the Conjuring universe, including where they are at with with the next true sequel, as well as the status of The Crooked Man and The Nun spin-offs.
James Wan recently spoke extensively about The Conjuring movie universe with Entertainment Weekly. Starting with The Conjuring 3, he reveals that they are currently working on the script and trying to get things exactly right. Here's what he had to say about it.

Even if you've never seen his face, you've almost certainly seen the work of Doug Jones. He's played Abe Sapien in both Hellboy movies, Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer, The Faun & The Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, and plenty of other roles which frequently call for the lanky actor to be covered in latex. One of Doug... Read More »

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 »

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...
