Guillermo del Toro‘s The Shape of Water (2017) movie trailer stars Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg. The Shape of Water‘s plot synopsis: “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 is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda discover a secret classified experiment.”

Love is a strange and strong emotion to deal with. It can warp your perception of the world and things in it. In The Shape of Water, love is very strange and Elisa (Sally Hawkins)’s perception is most definitely warped with regard to how things can work out with the experiment trapped in the water cage of her place of work. For Elisa’s eventually situation to reach fruition, she will have to enlist the aid of many people. Towards the end of this trailer, it looks as though that’s what she does.

Guillermo del Toro is effective at creating environments that are authentic, creepy, and dramatic for the world’s of his films. Del Toro has done the same with The Shape of Water. Fans of this director’s work saw how capable del Toro was at creating a begone era with Pan’s Labyrinth. That same attention to detail is present in The Shape of Water.

The Shape of Water also stars Doug Jones, Lauren Lee Smith, John Kapelos, David Hewlett, Nick Searcy, Morgan Kelly, Cyndy Day, Madison Ferguson, Dru Viergever, and Jayden Greig.
