Academy Award winning actress Octavia Spencer is set to star in the Guillermo del Toro film titled The Shape of Water alongside Oscar nominees Sally Hawkins and Michael Shannon. The first trailer has officially been released, and it looks as if it is a visually gorgeous fairy tale for grown-ups that is scary, thrilling, and romantic.
The Shape of Water is set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
This looks like a dream come true for grown-ups who still love fairy tales, and we can’t wait to see this one! Check out the trailer above!
