Guillermo del Toro The Shape of Water

I’m excited about all of the project that filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) is developing but I never believe any of them are actually going to happen until the first day of filming begins. That day has come for his cold war fantasy film The Shape Of Water, which begins principal photography today in Toronto Canada. Learn more about The Shape of Water, after the jump.

Hidden Figures trailer

John Glenn might get most of the glory for being the first American to orbit Earth, but behind him were dozens of brilliant scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, and more working to make his journey happen. The new movie Hidden Figures tells the story of three of them.

Taraji P. Henson leads the cast as NASA mathematician  Katherine Johnson, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015 for her pioneering work. Octavia Spencer plays fellow NASA mathematician Dorothy Vaughn, and Janelle Monáe rounds out the central trio as NASA engineer Mary Jackson.

Also starring are Kevin CostnerKirsten DunstJim ParsonsAldis HodgeMahershala Ali, and Glen Powell as John Glenn. Watch the first Hidden Figures trailer below.  Read More »

Michael Shannon in Midnight Special

It’s not remotely surprising when Guillermo del Toro manages to attract top-level talent for his movies, but it’s welcome news all the same. Michael Shannon is the latest actor to sign on for del Toro’s next movie, an otherwordly Cold War romance that also stars Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. More details on the Guillermo del Toro Michael Shannon casting below.  Read More »

Richard Jenkins in Olive Kitteridge

Guillermo del Toro has about a hundred different projects cooking at any given moment, but as we reported back in March, his next directorial effort is a Cold War romance starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Of course, del Toro being del Toro, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill period piece.

Earlier reports vaguely alluded to an “otherwordly” element, and now we might have a better idea of just what that might mean. A new report claims Richard Jenkins is looking to join the del Toro project… and that the story might involve an amphibious man.   Read More »

Guillermo del Toro films ranked

Since Crimson Peak hit theaters, Guillermo del Toro‘s fans have wondered what project he might tackle next. And it feels like a new possibility presents itself each week, from a Fantastic Voyage remake for James Cameron to a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation to a black-and-white luchador movie. But now it seems he’s finally made a decision on his next movie — and not only that, he’s already begun assembling a kick-ass cast.

Sally Hawkins has reportedly been set to star in del Toro’s untitled next film, which is set up at Fox Searchlight, while Octavia Spencer is currently in talks. The project is described as a Cold War drama, but in typical del Toro fashion it sounds like there’s a fantastical twist.  Read More »

This new Insurgent trailer — possibly the last before the film opens at the end of March — has a lot of new footage, and condenses the sales pitch for the film down to one minute. (My favorite edits!) We see some of the strife that consumes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and a bunch of big effects shots that dress up the proceedings. We also get shots of a lot of the rest of the cast, including Tris’ beau Theo James, and Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer. Read More »
