"The Shape Of Water" Got A Red Band Trailer And It Already Looks Like The Best Love Story Of The Year

"Nothing...out of the ordinary."

Posted on

If you haven't heard anything about Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, I cannot stress enough how much you NEED to make watching the first trailer a priority.

This first trailer was released in July, 2017.

The film is a different kind of fairy tale, taking place in Cold War-era Baltimore where mute and isolated Elisa (Sally Hawkins) bonds with a "classified government asset" (Doug Jones).

But she soon realizes she may be the only one who can save the sea monster from his pre-determined fate.

The film is receiving praise from every direction, winning the coveted "Golden Lion" for best picture at the Venice Film Festival.

While also receiving a standing ovation upon premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

And today we got new footage in the form of a second trailer, this time red band.

This trailer focuses a little less on the potential love story at hand, and a little more on the desperate attempt to stop it from happening.

This involves a very stressed-out Michael Shannon as the agent charged with the asset.

And a very protective Octavia Spencer as Elisa's interpreter and friend.

Whatever happens, if the full film is half as gorgeous as these trailers, then this is destined to be one of the best movies of 2017.

Bring your own personal sea monster with you to enjoy this one, in theaters Dec. 8th, 2017.
