The Shape of Water doesn’t have the genre bending spectacle behind Pacific Rim or Crimson Peak, but the trailer suggests a more intimate form of storytelling and del Toro has already made the brilliant master stroke of casting under utilized Sally Hawkins as its lead. Set in the Cold War era of 1963, Elisa (Hawkins) is a lonely woman who works in a high-security government that houses a highly classified experiment (frequent del Toro collaborator Doug Jones). When Elisa gradually bonds with this life specimen, her job, as well as this government secret is compromised. Michael Shannon and Octavia Spencer co-star in the highly anticipated flick. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think! The Shape of Water opens nationwide December 8.

The Shape Of Water director told the story during an interview in front of an audience of students at Loyola Marymount University's School Of Film & TV, and it must be read to be believed: "I know this is horrible. You sound like a complete lunatic, but I saw a UFO. I didn't want to see a UFO. It was horribly designed. I was with a friend [at] a place called Cerro del Cuatro, "Mountain of the Four," and outside, in the the periphery of Guadalajara. We said, ‘Let's go to the highway.' We sit down to watch the stars and have the beer and talk. We were the only guys by the freeway. And we saw a light on the horizon going super-fast, not linear. And I said, ‘Honk and flash the lights.' And we started honking. And it went from there to here -- like 1,000 meters away -- in less than a second, and it was so crappy. It was a flying saucer, so clichéd, with lights [blinking]. It's so sad: I wish I could reveal they're not what you think they are. They are what you think they are. And the fear we felt was so primal. I have never been that scared in my life. We jumped in the car, drove really fast. It was following us, and then I looked back and it was gone. So, you know, judge me. I have no implant." Amazing. The man saw a flying saucer and thought it wasn't cool enough! Guess we should expect as much from such a visionary sci-fi/fantasy filmmaker! Ha!
