WATCH: Del Toro Takes the Romance Genre for a Spin with THE SHAPE OF WATER Trailer

Guillermo del Toro is making a romance film. Yup, you read that right. But of course, since this is a Del Toro film, expect that there will be a fantastical twist. "The Shape of Water" promises to be a genre-defying romance fantasy movie starring an impressive cast that includes Octavia Spencer, Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins and Doug Jones - known for his pivotal nonhuman roles. The film has received much-acclaim in its recent Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) run with some critics saying this is Del Toro's best film since "Pan's Labyrinth". If you need more convincing, you can watch the film's trailer below:

From Guillermo del Toro comes “The Shape of Water”, an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

“The Shape of Water” opens February 2018 in Philippine cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
