Elisa Encounters the Creature in These ‘The Shape of Water’ Clips!

Elisa Encounters the Creature in These ‘The Shape of Water’ Clips!

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, his other-worldly tale set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America, opens in theaters everywhere this coming Friday.

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.

Fox Searchlight released several clips today, with highlights being Elisa’s first encounter with the creature, and another being her breathtaking moment with it inside a movie theater. This movie looks absolutely stunning and we can’t wait to see it this weekend!

    I’m still not quite sure about what this movie really is but it looks great.

    You know something has always picked at me about Octavia Spencer, for starters I think she’s a lovely, talented actress. And that’s been proven by the roles she takes and the films she stars in, there usually always in talks for an Academy Award or an Emmy, or a Golden Globe, not to mention this film here ‘The Shape of Water’. Which brings me to my question; now considering everything I just said, why she chose a very minor role in Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween 2’ as ‘Nurse Daniels’? I mean I like her death scene it’s absolutely brutal, which if Zombie would’ve stuck more to the original ‘Halloween 2’ storyline it would’ve been a thousand times better, but an actress of her caliber and she picks that role in that film!

    Anyone?

      I always think ….what the hell is she doing there !!!!
      But she seems to do it quite a lot (popping up in something unexpected) .
      She has a great cameo in a Big Bang Theory as an irate DMV assistant ….she’s SO funny .
      Personally …..i’m always glad to see her whatever she’s in (apart from that Christian thing she did).
      Oh and she was in MOM for awhile .

    Sorry, not in theaters everywhere Friday. Only 1 theater in a 60 plus mile radius in my area.

      You are correct. You’d think BD would have their shit straight considering they wrote a goddamn article about the release plan on December 1st.

        Thanks for posting that. I hadn’t seen that before. I checked with IMDB and they claimed the 15th for nation release. If it is the 22nd it would make more sense considering it’s hardly anywhere but with Star Wars and a few other shows out right now I don’t expect it to be here.

          I guess we will wait and see. It sounds like a film that should be seen by the masses. Besides, maybe other people want to see something besides lightsabers.
