CONFIRMED: First Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape Of Water’ With ‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’


UPDATE (July 3): Confirming our guess – the trailer has been sent to U.S. cinemas (via Deluxe Digital) to play with War For The Planet of the Apes starting from the special Triple Feature showings on Wednesday, July 12.

To re-iterate what del Toro has previously said – the trailer will not be released online before those showings at least (if not until after Apes‘s opening weekend), so if you want to be the first to get a look at The Shape Of Water, be sure to book your triple-bill tickets…

Likely in time for War for the Planet of the Apes, Ontario Film Authority have rated the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s highly-anticipated The Shape Of Water – described as ‘an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963’. The director previously teased the first look on his Twitter, revealing that it will be released in front of a certain upcoming film – and most importantly, that it won’t be released online until that film’s opening weekend has passed.
