First Film Clip For Guillermo Del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER

First Film Clip For Guillermo Del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER

Splashigans, Guillermo Del Toro‘s name just has this effect on a project. If I told you the teaser for The Shape of Water just dropped, you might be indifferent. If I said, “I think it’s the one Guillermo Del Toro is attached…” and you’ve run to YouTube before I’m done with my thought. Well, his new film is being raved about by the film festival critics, and it’s not hard to imagine.

We’ve come to expect a certain level of art, and imagination, from Mr. Del Toro. We don’t get to see much in this clip, other than Michael Shannon walking around looking stoic. And, a hand from the creature in the tube. They had me at Michael Shannon.

With no further ado, here’s the first film clip from The Shape of Water.

A little further ado… I knew that was Octavia Spencer before I could even see her face. She’s great, and I’m sure the role is great, but I don’t want to see her holding a broom or a mop for the next five films she’s in. Love you Octavia!

Now, here’s the full trailer released in July:

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 Shape of Water will hit theaters on December 8, 2017.

    Come on guys. I appreciate the info and opinions in SplashReport articles, but feel a forced camaraderie in tone as well as being talked down to as if I’m twelve years old. I also find the need to wordplay “splash” in every article rather juvenile.

    • Hi Richard, I never want you to feel as though you’re being talked down to. Regarding forced camaraderie, that’s just because a lot of readers followed from previous ventures where we were a bit more social. We appreciate you reading though.
