Guillermo del Toro Just Shared the New ‘The Shape of Water’ Art and It’s Beautiful

Guillermo del Toro took to reddit to share this ridiculously gorgeous new one-sheet for The Shape of Water, his other-worldly tale set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America. Joe Lipsett reviewed the film out of TIFF and called it an equally beautiful and captivating fairytale.

In the Creature From the Black Lagoon-inspired dramatic thriller, “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.”

Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones also star.

Look for it on December 8, 2017.

      They mentioned the idea came years ago(2011) but i can’t deny the similarities and that’s too much. Unless Del Toro does credit the original creators if not then they will sue. Obviously not right now since they are waiting at the opportunity that the movie will do well so when it happens, they strike.

        don’t get me wrong guys, i’m very excited to see SHAPE OF WATER. 🙂

      it’s very strange since it says 2015, but I did a quick search on the internet and there are no news of this short before 2017. So… I don’t know…

      • Grimphantom

        I check that too but it does have some legit since i saw one of the guys who came up with this since checked over at his facebook at 2015 and does show some stuff about it.

        Del Toro mentioned 2011 so i really don’t know if that’s proof enough unless he does.

    After del torro gets this done he needs to get that saturn movie made cus that shit sounded so damn amazing. And if it doesn’t get made I’ll be very upset.

    The only thing i want del toro to make is a movie more akin to mimic and blade 2. Get back into real horror del.

    “Four months from now, a brand new, original Guillermo del Toro took to reddit to share this ridiculously gorgeous new one-sheet for The Shape of Water,…”

    am i reading this wrong? does this sentence even make sense?

    • Saturn

      As far as I’m concerned, that is evidence of time travel.

    I still prefer this one from the same artist as Mother!’s gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem posters, it looks kind of like Yoshitaka Amano’s work. James Jean is definitely an artist to watch https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/100b4c2d905437972513fd68727d23bae61f871ea80330bbff1d1f049ee72f00.jpg

      I saw this at the AGO in Toronto last night. There’s a huge exhibit of all of Del Toro’s personal collection and props, costumes and full character models from his movies. Pretty awesome.

    That first sentence hurts me brain.
