Guillermo del Toro is finally back in fairy tale mode this December with “The Shape of Water,” and Fox Searchlight has debuted our first look thanks to the gorgeous debut trailer. Del Toro has naturally made a jaw-droppingly beautiful picture, one that recalls the black-and-blue shades of “Pan’s Labyrinth.”
“The Shape of Water” reunites the filmmaker with cinematographer Dan Laustsen, who shot “Mimic” for del Toro in 1997 and the Gothic horror “Crimson Peak” just two years ago. Their work together on “The Shape of Water” looks to sprinkle some visual magic into a cold-hearted setting. In otherwards, this is what del Toro does best.
Fox Searchlight Pictures will open “The Shape of Water” in theaters December 8. Click through the gallery for our favorite 16 shots from the official trailer.
