Default Del Toro's latest, The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro, ever busy has a new one coming this fall called The Shape of Water.
This trailer is pretty moving. Looks like a winner.
(Lol. As always it seems as though we find ourselves reading subtitles with his films)

I wonder if he'll get sued for using Abe Sapien?

Abe Sapien is the fish-man character in Hellboy. More than a little resemblance to this.

There's a lot of speculation that this movie may have started as an Abe Sapien prequel/origin story spinoff, but del Toro changed the name and some of the details so he wouldn't have to pay for the rights to use the character again.

This film looks like it's going to take a few Oscars. It has to most nominations so even on a percentage scale it's got to win a couple.
