The First Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape of Water’ Has Arrived

The trailer for director Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water has arrived, and the first thing that probably strikes you is how beautiful the film looks. Of course, it’s a del Toro film, so that’s not terribly surprising. What is surprising is how sweet the trailer feels.

The Shape of Water first appears to be a science fiction creature film on its surface (no pun intended), but really is more of a fairy tale. Doug Jones plays a fish-like creature who has a friendship (and maybe romance) with a mute woman (Sally Hawkins) who cleans the lab he’s being held in. And while it certainly looks sweet, there’s clearly some darkness to the situation.

Honestly, it just looks cool as all get out.

The Shape of Water comes out December 8, 2017

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
