Red Band Preview — Del Toro’s sopping wet Xmas present, “The Shape of Water”

The best cast Guillermo del Toro’s ever worked with headlines his government secrets/monster movie period piece “The Shape of Water,” due out this Dec.

Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon and Richard Jenkins — that’s a lineup any Academy Awards telecast would be proud to pitch as nominees.

“Creature from the Black Lagoon Shipped to Area 51” seems to be the plot. Studied, and then broken out. “Black Lagoon Meets ‘Turtle Diary,'” maybe?

Looks good. GDT could use a dazzler. The red band is purely for profanity, so don’t get your pervy hopes up.
