The Angels. Guillermo del Toro published this Thursday the first images of “Nightmare Alley”, his first feature film after “The Shape of Water” (2017) which will hit theaters on December 17th.

Bradley Cooper stars in this project accompanied by a major cast including Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara, Toni Collette, Richard Jenkins and Ron Perlman, among many others.

The first video, lasting a minute and a half, shows the protagonists of the psychological thriller a circus stage tinged with darkness.

Del Toro wrote the script with Kim Morgan of this new film, in which he will also be a producer, and which will be the Mexican filmmaker’s first job after “The Shape of Water” (2017), which won four Oscars: best film, best director, best production design and best soundtrack.

“Nightmare Alley” is the title of a novel by William Lindsay Gresham that was adapted for the cinema in 1947 with a homonymous film that starred Tyrone Power under the direction of Edmund Goulding.

The book recounted the rise and fall, between romantic conspiracies and betrayals of all kinds, of a powerful mentalist who worked in a circus.

Del Toro explored the most spectacular cinema with “Pacific Rim” (2013) and “Blade II” (2002), and built a beloved film saga by comic lovers with the films “Hellboy” (2004) and “Hellboy II: The Golden Army “(2008).

The Mexican did not renounce more personal projects either, since his inception with “Cronos” (1993) and “The Devil’s backbone“(2001) until crowned with “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006), that before “The Shape of Water” it was his most applauded work and one that won three Oscars: best photography, best makeup and best art direction (an award now known as best production design).
