A top-notch cast
In the trailer for the film based on the 1946 novel by William Lindsay Gresham, we see well-known faces such as American actor Bradley Cooper, Oscar winner Cate Blanchet or veteran Willen Dafoe.
Despite bearing the same title as the novel, this film is an independent adaptation of Del Toro that tells the story of Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper), a former circus worker who currently works in a nightclub as a reader of minds. There he meets the psychiatrist Lilith Ritter (Cate Blanchett) who wants to prove that Carlisle is a fraud.
It seems that Del Toro will stray far from his usual fantasy universe full of magic and unknown creatures to give way to a more traditional cinema in which the plot depends on the actors and their interaction with each other.
The film is scheduled to premiere in cinemas around the world starting on December 2, 2021, when we can once again enjoy the art of the Guadalajara-born director who swept the Oscars in 2018 with his film production. , The Shape of Water.
