NIGHTMARE ALLEY: Bradley Cooper & Cate Blanchett Form A Deadly Alliance In First Trailer For GDT's Thriller
The stylish first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's noir thriller, Nightmare Alley, is now online, and it seems Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett are set to form a deadly alliance. Check it out...
Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Crimson Peak) has been teasing a first look at his latest feature for a quite a while, and the trailer for Nightmare Alley is now online.
While The Shape of Water director usually likes to delve into the realms of fantasy and horror, this adaptation of the 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham is actually more of a noir-ish psychological thriller - although this first footage certainly suggests that there could be a supernatural element to the tale (there isn't, but it looks like GDT wants to keep people guessing).
Bradley Cooper (GOTG, A Star Is Born) plays a manipulative conman named Stanton “Stan” Carlisle, who teams up with even more dangerous psychiatrist Dr. Lillith Ritter (Cate Blanchett) to try their hand at the carny game. Their endeavour proves successful and the pair reap the benefits, but can these grifters ever really trust one another?
Check out the striking trailer and poster below, and let us know what you think.
Nightmare Alley also stars Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Rooney Mara, Ron Perlman, David Strathairn, Clifton Collins Jr., Tim Blake Nelson and Mary Steenburgen, and is set to hit theaters on December 17.
