Guillermo del Toro‘s “The Shape of Water” has a new red band trailer.
The film, which stars Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, and Richard Jenkins was a monster hit when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival two weeks ago. In fact, the film won the Golden Lion Award at Venice, as well as prizes for the director and Best Soundtrack for Alexandre Desplat.
“The Shape of Water” also screened at Telluride and TIFF, where the enthusiastic praise continued.
The official synopsis reads:
“From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER – 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 (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.”
The red band trailer doesn’t reveal much more than the green band did, but it is a new look at the film.
The film will play several more festivals, including Mill Valley and London, ahead of its release date on December 8.
