Here’s a red band trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water replete with…one swear word?
That’s it? No wobbly bits or graphic violence?
Ah well, this “Red Band” trailer shows us a little bit more about story they’re offering. It’s starting to look like familiar territory. Imprisoned or caged creature set free by some do-gooder Sally Hawkins…some baddy, in this case Michael Shannon begins the hunt to retake his property, usually destroying anyone who gets in his way.
So far it looks like the suggested bestiality between the female protagonist and the creature (no judgement, whatever floats your boat darlin’…just make sure its consensual!) is the only new twist on this dynamic.
I’m….not as intrigued as I was about this flick, but I’m not ruling it out yet other. We’ll see.
The Shape of Water starring Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones escapes into theaters December 8th.
