Searchlight Pictures has published the first full trailer from Nightmare Alley, the new film by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The renowned director bets on the cinema noir with a new film adaptation of the 1946 novel of the same name written by William Lindsay Gresham. Four years after the celebrated The Shape of Water, this is what awaits us with his new work, scheduled to premiere in December of this year in the United States; January 2022 in Spain.
Contrary to what it may seem, this new Nightmare Alley is not a remake of The Alley of Lost Souls, but a new independent adaptation of the novel, which has a cast of Hollywood stars enough to, as a base, feel like attracted by the proposal.
Nightmare Alley, a project desired since the nineties by Guillermo del Toro
We talk about actors and actresses like Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Paul Anderson, Toni Colette O Willem Dafoe, charged with telling us the story of Stanton Carlisle, a former circus worker who currently survives on commissions in a nightclub by reading the minds of others. Eventually, he will sign a deal with a woman who, although he does not know it, seeks to discover his true person and the mysteries of his actions.
Working on a Nightmare Alley movie has been one of Guillermo del Toro’s great goals for decades; but it has not been until now that the opportunity has presented itself. Joining him will be Kim Morgan on the script and Alexandre Desplat on the soundtrack.
Nightmare Alley is scheduled to premiere in USA It is December 17; Meanwhile in Spain will do the same next January 28, 2022, just over a month later, in theaters across the country if the pandemic does not prevent it. Without a doubt, one of the great premieres of the season and perhaps one of the last nominees for the Oscar Awards gala.
