Check out the new poster for Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro Sally Hawkins Doug Jones

A Guillermo del Toro film is always something to look forward to, at least, it is for me, and we're fortunate enough to have what appears to be one of his best closing out the year. Set in 1962 during the Cold War, THE SHAPE OF WATER finds the lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) trapped in a life of silence and isolation, but when she discovers an amphibious creature (Doug Jones) in a water tank in a government laboratory, her life is changed forever. Despite its monster-movie roots, the film is already shaping up to be a major awards contender, and a brand-new poster has been unveiled. Check it out below!

Since its debut at the Venice International Film Festival this summer, Guillermo del Toro's THE SHAPE OF WATER has been receiving rave reviews, including one from our own Chris Bumbray, who caught the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. Calling it a "magnificent piece of film," in his review, Bumbray added that it's a "thoroughly original love story/fable," which "never quite goes down the path you think it will." In addition to Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones, THE SHAPE OF WATER also stars Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg. That's one hell of a cast. I can't wait.

The official synopsis for THE SHAPE OF WATER:

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.

THE SHAPE OF WATER will hit theaters on December 8, 2017.
