TrailerWatch: Guillermo Del Toro’s monstrously beautiful “The Shape of Water”

“You don’t think that’s what the Lord looks like, do you?”

Love story time!  But of course, with director Guillermo Del Toro, there’s gonna be a spin.  Think Hellboy (or rather Abe Sapien from the comics) meets Planet of the Apes meets Romeo and Juliet.  But why am I writing?  Synopsis!

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 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and 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.

Sounds incredibly sweet.  And the CGI/motion capture of “the creature” is amazing.  Seriously, it’s so Abe Sapien I just want to love him and hug him and call him George.

The Shape of Water hits theaters December 8th, 2017.
