The Shape of Water
Written by Guillermo Del Toro & Vanessa Taylor
Directed by Guillermo Del Toro
Starring Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Jenkins
Fox Searchlight
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: December 15, 2017

You know pretty much when walking into a Guillermo del Toro movie that you’re in for a visual masterclass in filmmaking. Even the films of his I didn’t love (Hellboy 1 & 2, Crimson Peak) were beautiful to watch. But the films where he matches the visuals and production design with tour de force acting and writing become classics. Pan’s Labyrinth is one of most incredible films I have ever watched and The Shape of Water echoed it, exchanging the Spanish Civil War for The Cold War, and switching the lead protagonist from a young girl to an adult woman. It is beautiful, not just in imagery, but in characters. Like Pan’s, there’s a psychotic and powerful antagonist and an epic performance by the “Master of Disguise,” Doug Jones, this time as the “Amphibian Man.”

The Shape of Water
Director: Guillermo del Toro
Screenwriter: Guillermo del Toro, Vanessa Taylor
Cast: Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer
Distributor: Fox Searchlight
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: December 15, 2017

A native of Guadalajara, Mexico, Guillermo del Toro was fascinated as a child by fairy tales, ghost stories, and monster movies that ignited his imagination and compelled him to tell his own stories. When he started writing and directing films, those influences laid the foundation for del Toro’s uniquely expressive approach to genre filmmaking – a return to the dark romanticism of Universal horror films like 1931’s Frankenstein and Dracula.

Best known for his three Spanish-language films that upend conventional genre storytelling, Cronos, The Devil’s Backbone, and Pan’s Labyrinth, del Toro weaves vivid phantasmagorias that capture the beauty and the horror of the human experience. His supernatural epics are equally as inventive, from Blade II and the Hellboy series, to Pacific Rim and his gothic romance, Crimson Peak. His new film, The Shape of Water, is the culmination of del Toro’s career thus far – the summation of everything the filmmaker has learned, refined and perfected.

‘The Shape Of Water’ Trailer: Guillermo del Toro’s Twisted Romance Takes A Deep Dive

The Shape of Water Header

The problem with Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak wasn’t so much about the film as how it was marketed. While it was a gothic romance thriller, the marketing seemed to emphasize that it was a horror. So how do you fix that problem with the filmmaker’s newest movie, The Shape Of Water? Just be straightforward with what it is, of course.

Del Toro’s twisted romance fantasy centers on a mute young woman who works at a top secret government facility where a gilled-man is currently being experimented on. Though they cannot speak to each other and are a different species, they feel an instant connection. Soon it becomes a race against time to help rescue the creature as the experiments are becoming painfully severe.

Check out the full trailer below.

Written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, Bone Tomahawk is a measured, macabre mash-up that’s equal parts The Searchers and The Hills Have Eyes.

When a tribe of cannibalistic cave dwellers kidnaps settlers from the town of Bright Hope, a team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. Accompanying the sheriff are “backup deputy” Chicory (Richard Jenkins), haughty Indian-hunter Brooder (Matthew Fox), and Arthur O’Dwyer (Patrick Wilson), whose wife (Lili Simmons) was abducted in the raid.

‘White House Down’ Trailer: Destroying U.S. Landmarks Is A Habit For Roland Emmerich

White House Down Header

One can’t walk out of a Roland Emmerich film without seeing the White House being annihilated. Sure we’ve seen aliens fire upon it, colossal waves wash over it, and climate changes freeze it, but White House Down will be director’s first film that is directly set in the historic landmark.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx play Secret Service agent John Cale and the President of the United States, respectively, who must work together to find out why international terrorists brought the White House down, what their true intentions are, and to save Cale’s daughter Emily (Joey King). A new four-minute trailer has popped up online, and it appropriately shows how the White House is brought down in a way that only Emmerich could think of, which is massive.

Check out the new trailer for White House Down below.
