Wow. I knew nothing about this before seeing the trailer this morning and now I’m in love! Here’s the trailer to the latest movie from Guillermo del Toro titled THE SHAPE OF WATER, which Fox Searchlight is releasing in theaters December 8th!
Isn’t that beautiful? It looks like his version of “Creature From The Black Lagoon… in love!” Here’s the full synopsis and a poster drawn by del Toro himself!
