Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water has been receiving a lot of praise from critics, with 95% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes. Many are saying that it's Del Toro's best work since Pan's Labyrinth. Now, a new international trailer has been released to emphasize the film's conflict, and it features new footage of Elisa Esposito (played by Sally Hawkins) and Colonel Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon). There's a good amount of beautiful and emotional shots in this film, and you can feel the overwhelming passion in this trailer. I wouldn't be surprised if Sally Hawkins gets a Best Actress nomination at the Academy Awards.
Watch it here:
From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water - an other-worldly fable, 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 is set to release in U.S. theaters on December 8, 2017.
