Final Trailer Makes ‘The Shape of Water’ This Holiday Season’s Most Must-See Movie

While Universal struggles to get any kind of “Dark Universe” off the ground, Guillermo del Toro brings his own version of Creature from the Black Lagoon to the screen with this December’s The Shape of Water. Not only is Del Toro’s latest already generating Oscar buzz, but the visionary filmmaker considers it his proudest achievement.

Today brings the final trailer for The Shape of Water, previewing the ’60s set, otherworldly fairytale before it arrives in time to be your new favorite movie of 2017.

Get swept up in the magic by watching the new trailer below.

“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.”

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

The film opens in limited release on December 1 before expanding on December 8.



  • Del Toro saying it’s his best movie already did that for me. Can’t wait to see it.

  • Mike tantatelli

    That looks pretty damn good.

  • Jaime Tena

    Saw it at a film festival in Mexico, its one of my favorite films of this year, really beautiful movie. You could tell Del Toro was trying new things while keeping his style.
    Its a dark modern fairy tale with a lot of social commentary without getting too preachy about it.
    Also Guillermo Del Toro was there and he gave a conference where he talked about making the film and extensively explained the semiotics of the color and art production of the look of the film , as well as character and story development from the conception stage to the final product, so now I am looking forward to seeing it again with all that inside knowledge.
    For sure its gonna get a lot of Oscar buzz.
    Also not a spoiler but there is a scene that takes place in a movie theatre and its just beyond gorgeous.

      Visually, it brought to mind a bit of a Jean Pierre Jeunet vibe.

  • ShadowInc

    This looks awesome, but I feel like the trailer has shown too much.

  • Necro

    I forgot this was rated R. Also I’m going to give him another chance considering ‘Crimson Puke’ sorry ‘Peak’ was an absolute pile of shit IN MY OPINION!

  • Mike Lawrence

    Def looks like an original idea, which is a nice change these days.
    And love Octavia Spencer.
