Check out the new trailer for director Guillermo del Toro‘s upcoming mystery thriller, Nightmare Alley. This is the final trailer for the movie, and it’s filled with new footage that puts more of a focus on Bradley Cooper’s character. At the same time, it looks like he’s involved in some shady dealings.
The story for this movie is still shrouded in mystery, and I’m not exactly sure what is really going on, but I’m interested and excited.
The film is an adaptation of the 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham, but as you might have expected, Del Toro offers a fresh take on the story. When previously talking about the movie, Del Toro said it’s filled with “a very strange, mystical allure.” I also have to say that I love the setting of the film and its noir tone.
Cooper plays Stan Carlisle, “an ambitious carny with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words.” He ends up hooking up with “Dr. Lilith Ritter (Cate Blanchett), a psychiatrist who is even more dangerous than he is.”
The movie also stars Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara, Toni Collette, Holt McCallany, Ron Perlman, Richard Jenkins, and David Strathairn. Nightmare Alley will be released in theaters everywhere starting on December 17th, 2021.
