"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water


The Shape of Water is the new film from Guillermo del Toro. It stars Academy Award nominee Sally Hawkins (BLUE JASMINE, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY), Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, 99 HOMES), Academy Award nominee Richard Jenkins (THE VISITOR, “Olive Kitteridge”), Doug Jones (CRIMSON PEAK, HELLBOY), Golden Globe nominee Michael Stuhlbarg (A SERIOUS MAN, STEVE JOBS) and Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer (THE HELP, GIFTED).

THE SHAPE OF WATER is an other-worldly story, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. Sally Hawkins will play Elisa, a janitor working at a laboratory where an “amphibious man” has been captured. Elisa falls for the creature, and eventually, calls on her neighbour to help her stage a rescue attempt.

It is almost like an Abe Sapien spin off from Hellboy! Wouldn’t it be great if they were doing a J.J. Abrams and this was Abe Sapien or it was the Creature from the Black Lagoon for Universal?

It all looks absolutely gorgeous in that odd decaying way that del Toro’s films often do. I cannot wait to see how it all plays out.

The film is out in the US on 8th December 2017 and then in the UK on 16th February 2018.

Academy Award nominated Guillermo del Toro (PAN’S LABYRINTH, CRIMSON PEAK) directed and co-wrote the film with Vanessa Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” DIVERGENT). The film is being produced by del Toro and J. Miles Dale (THE VOW, SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD).
