Come on in and find out… is he man or beast?
The trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s new movie Nightmare Alley has finally arrived from Searchlight Pictures, with the hotly anticipated film only in theaters on December 17.
One thing we need to make clear right off the bat? Nightmare Alley isn’t a horror movie. “It has happened to me in the past with Crimson Peak, where people went in expecting a horror movie. But yes, this has no supernatural element. It’s based completely in a reality world. There is nothing fantastic. It’s a very different movie from my usual,” del Toro tells Vanity Fair.
With that established, find the official teaser trailer below.
Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Rooney Mara, Ron Perlman, Mary Steenburgen, and David Strathairn star in Nightmare Alley.
In the film…
“An ambitious young carny (Cooper) with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words hooks up with a female psychiatrist (Blanchett) who is even more dangerous than he is.”
The movie adapts the novel by William Lindsay Gresham.
Published in 1946, the novel spawned its first feature film just one year later starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell, and this new take was written by del Toro and Kim Morgan.
