Nightmare Alley: First Look at Guillermo del Toro’s Noir Thriller

The Oscar-winning filmmaker directs Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett in a story of seduction and treachery. Deception is at the core of Guillermo del Toro’s new thriller Nightmare Alley, but the Oscar-winning filmmaker actually wants to be completely honest with audiences: This movie is not what you might think it is. The ominous title, combined with the del Toro’s long history of bringing ghosts, ghouls, and twisted creatures to the screen in films from Cronos to The Shape of Water, may lead to the mistaken assumption that it’s another otherworldly tale. Nightmare Alley is actually his take on classic film noir, marking a stark shift for the filmmaker. But he knows the false impression might stick.

Trailer : del Toro’s Nightmare Alley

A new trailer for “Nightmare Alley”, released by Searchlight Pictures in December, has been released. Guillermo del Toro directs Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett in the story of a carny with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words that hooks up with a female psychiatrist who is even more dangerous than he is.

Del Toro, Coop, and Cate enter the race

One of the big question marks of the 2021 awards season was Guillermo Del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, a new adaptation of William Lindsay Gresham’s novel (there is also a 1947 film starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell) of the same name. Del Toro literally JUST finished the film, which means it will be a contender this year, throwing stars Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett into the Oscar race, and bringing Del Toro back following his Best Director/Best Picture wins in 2018 for The Shape of Water (it still bugs me that this incredibly weird yet lovely film is somehow treated as stereotypical Oscar bait, like, there’s FISH F-CKING, it’s the weirdest movie the Academy has voted for in a long time).

Venice Boss: Guillermo del Toro ‘Was Racing’ to Finish ‘Nightmare Alley’ but ‘It Was Impossible’

According to Venice Film Festival artistic director Alberto Barbera, Guillermo del Toro would have returned to the Lido with new directorial effort “Nightmare Alley” had he been able to finish the movie in time. Barbera confirmed to Variety that del Toro was “racing against the clock” to finish the movie in time for a Venice Film Festival world premiere. Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” won the 2017 festival on its way to Oscar wins for Best Picture, Best Director, and more. Del Toro then presided over the 2018 jury, which gave the Golden Lion to Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma.”

‘Nightmare Alley’: 9 Things to Know About Guillermo del Toro’s Big Return to Theaters

Guillermo del Toro’s boundless imagination hasn’t graced the big screen since 2017 with “The Shape of Water.” The Mexican filmmaker’s odd love story about a mute woman’s relationship with a water-dwelling creature won the Mexican filmmaker Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, but the world was already acquainted with him as a director capable of mainstream success with movies like “Hellboy” and “Pacific Rim.”

Oscars 2022: Best Supporting Actress Predictions

At the fall film festivals, the long list of possible Supporting Actress contenders will be whittled down. Several Oscar perennials are looking for yet another nod. Having just collected her third statue, Frances McDormand (“Nomadland”) rejoins the Wes Anderson ensemble as a journalist who goes to bed with a young ’60s activist (Timothée Chalamet) in Wes Anderson’s Cannes debut “The French Dispatch” (Searchlight), which also stars Oscar winner Tilda Swinton (“Michael Clayton”) as an art expert. Seeking her third Oscar is Cate Blanchett (“The Aviator,” “Blue Jasmine”), who joins a gaggle of comet-watchers in Adam McKay’s comedy “Don’t Look Up”...

Bradley Cooper goes to yoga

Bradley Cooper has been quiet the last couple of years. It’s the pandemic, of course, which is still not over, which I feel the need to repeat all the time because there are people out there acting like it is, but it’s also because it was definitely not quiet during A Star is Born, which is approaching its third anniversary this fall. This is deliberate – when you’re in everyone’s face for a high-profile project like ASIB, it’s not a bad decision to retreat for a while, not only to let people miss you but also to recharge.
