Check Out This Pulse-Pounding, Red-Band Trailer for ‘The Shape of Water’

- Advertisement -

The Shape of Water is getting terrific buzz from the Toronto International Film Festival, and if it’s not on the list of your most anticipated fall movies I don’t want to know you.

The first trailer was hypnotic in its gentle nature, but this NSFW red-band trailer heightens tension, anxiety, and is quite frankly a perfect trailer.

Check it out:

“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.”

Who needs a Dark Universe from the Fast and Furious guys? We have Guillermo Del Toro doing his own Creature From the Black Lagoon love story to tell! I want to live inside the world Del Toro paints here, it’s stunning to see even in a two-minute stretch.


The Shape of Water stars the incredible quartet of Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Shannon, who is in definite nut job mode. It opens December 8, see you there.
