It's not as though I watch a lot of movies these days but I do tend to be pretty "in the know," as it were, about the industry. So it's a sad day, personally, when a new movie completely evades my film radar.
Especially when it's a creature feature movie... a period piece... and one directed by Guillermo Del Toro of Hellboy, Pacific Rim, and Pan's Labyrinth fame.
So I was very disgusted with myself when I only discovered the existence of his new film The Shape of Water last week via a Twitter announcement of the official trailer.
This film looks singularly amazing.
I've even made this gorgeous piece of art the home screen wallpaper on my phone.
I can't wait for December 8.
