After a series of images, “Nightmare Alley”, Guillermo del Toro’s next film, is revealed with a first trailer. The film will be released in French theaters on January 19, 2022.
Guillermo del Toro’s new film
Nightmare alley is the highly anticipated next film from Guillermo del Toro. With this, the director intends to change his habits a little since the film should not contain any fantastic element. It is indeed an adaptation of the noir novel by William Lindsay Gresham titled The Charlatan (1946). The opportunity for him to work again with certain performers, such as Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water) and Ron Perlman (present in a large part of the Mexican’s films). And directing others for the first time, like Bradley Cooper, Toni Collette, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett and Willem Dafoe. A very beautiful casting which was revealed in part in the first images of the film.
A first trailer
After these few pictures, we knew that a trailer was going to be soon. She is now available (in one article) and gives us a better overview of what will be Nightmare alley. To know a film noir, very dark and disturbing. No creatures this time around for Guillermo del Toro but the filmmaker plays with metaphorical elements. This repeating phrase “is he a man or a beast” goes in this direction.
On the side of the story, we therefore find Bradley Cooper in the role of Stan, who arrives at this strange fun fair. He is advertised as a good talker who knows how to manipulate people. He decides to team up with Lilith, played here by Cate Blanchett. But the latter is actually more dangerous than him. In any case, the trailer sets the tone. Even if Nightmare alley remains very mysterious, this first promotional video is having its effect.
The film is scheduled for the end of the year in the United States. For France, it will be necessary, as for The Shape of Water, wait a little longer. With us, the film will be released on January 19, 2022.
