Fox Searchlight has debuted a new international trailer for their upcoming The Shape Of Water, the outstanding new film from acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.
The Shape of Water is 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 is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda discover a secret classified experiment.
We reviewed the film positively at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. You can check out our full review of the film here, but here’s a short snippet.
Part B-movie, part love-story, part alien adventure, The Shape Of Water is an amazing piece of work from an already accomplished, acclaimed director, but make no mistake, this is del Toro at his absolute best. Fans of his previous work should lap this up as it is a delicious medley of every single one of his movies rolled into one. Very deserved of its big win over at the Venice Film Festival this past week, expect The Shape Of Water to go to even bigger things – a fantastical, visually stunning piece of art-house cinema mixed up with traits of a true Hollywood sci-fl blockbuster. Amazing, shocking, delightful and heartfelt – literally everything you could want from a movie and so much more. One of the best films of the year.
The Shape Of Water debuts in the UK from February 14th. Here’s the new trailer.
