Director Guillermo del Toro’s amazing visual style is on display in the trailer for his upcoming film, The Shape of Water. The film, set during the Cold War in 1963, tells the story of a woman working at a government facility. She discovers an intelligent sea creature that is being held for experiments. From the trailer, it looks like a magical and suspenseful story.
Sally Hawkins stars in the movie, which was written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor. Other actors in the film include Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Lauren Lee Smith, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, plays the creature in The Shape of Water.
