Part of this is already seen in the trailer, with all the tension that this relationship will create not only for these characters, but also for the people around them.
This is Guillermo del Toro’s first film since his Oscar for The Shape of Water, in 2017. The film is inspired by the book of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham, which became a film in 1947. In addition to Cooper and Blanchett, the new version has Willem Dafoe, Toni Collette and Rooney Mara in the cast.
The Nightmare Alley is scheduled to premiere on December 20 in the US. In Brazil, the film still has no release date.
