Having just won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, as well as receiving high praise at TIFF and Telluride, The Shape of Water is already looking like a major Oscar contender. And wouldn’t you know it, Fox Searchlight has just released a new red band trailer that shows plenty of beautiful new footage. Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water follows mute janitor Sally Hawkins (Godzilla) who accidentally discovers a top-secret government experiment. The footage features gorgeous colors and creature designs, making it look like yet another Del Toro classic. We can’t wait to get our genetically-modified hands on it.
The Shape of Water also stars Michael Shannon (Man of Steel), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures), and Michael Stuhlbarg (Arrival). It’s set to swim into theaters on December 8th, 2017. In the meantime, watch the new red band trailer below.
