Guillermo del Toro Explores Cold War Creature In ‘The Shape of Water’ Trailer

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.
