Guillermo Del Toro is a master at what he does.
Films like Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Crimson Peak, and Pacific Rim are master crafts that immerse an audience into a different world. The famed Director is back for ‘The Shape of Water’ and judging by this first trailer, it’s going to be another great film.
Set in Cold War Americam Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is mute who works as a cleaning lady for a high-security government laboratory. She has one friend who she works with in Zelda (Octavia Spencer) and works for Strickland (Michael Shannon) who would rather no one be in his lab. The lab works as studying a creature (Doug Jones who played Abe in Del Toro’s Hellboy). Elisa uses sign language in order to communicate with the creature, and the two have a connection like no other. Elisa wants to save him, and Strickland will stop at nothing to research it.
‘The Shape of Water’ releases December 8, 2017.
