NIGHTMARE ALLEY: Check Out A New Trailer & Character Posters For Guillermo Del Toro's Dark Thriller
Searchlight Pictures has debuted the full trailer and a series of character posters for Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming thriller Nightmare Alley, which stars Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett.
A stylish new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Nightmare Alley is now online, and it thrusts Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett and an all-star supporting cast into a dangerous world where nothing is what it seems and nobody can be trusted.
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 trailer certainly suggests that there could be a supernatural twist in the tale.
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 trailer below along with a series of character posters, and let us know what you think.
"When charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper) endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a traveling carnival, he crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet."
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.
