Behold, the trailer for his next flick, The Shape of Water.
I feel like Del Toro's been on a downward trajectory for a while. S'like... from 2004 on:
Hellboy - pretty darned good!
Pan's Labyrinth - this is a masterpiece and Guillermo Del Toro is a fucking genius.
Hellboy II - pretty darned good!
Pacific Rim - pretty darned shitty, with some amazing kaiju/giant robot fights!
Crimson Peak - really nice... costumes? Yeah. It had nice costumes. I guess...
So I really want the Pan's Labyrinth Del Toro back. A lot of people are already saying The Shape of Water basically looks like a Hellboy prequel with a focus on Abe Sapien - he's a fish man who eats eggs, enjoys classical music and the time period would actually line up with Hellboy chronology - but I'm hoping it's purely original. At the very least, having a mute female lead is an unusual choice!
