added: Fri, Oct 6th '17

Guillermo del Toro's latest fantasy drama "The Shape of Water" seems to be nothing less than magical, and bringing some of that magic onto the screen is Del Toro's go-to Man-In-Suit actor Doug Jones, who portrays the imprisoned Creature from the Sea, simply called "The Asset."

Check out a new behind-the-scenes featurette for "The Shape of Water," which spotlights Jones' as the cold-blooded "Fish Man" who will no doubt warm moviegoers hearts this holiday season.

In the film, British actress Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) stars as Elisa, a lonely mute custodian who works at a top-secret government facility run by the evil Colonel Richard Strickland (played by Michael Shannon). Elisa soon befriends the incarcerated amphibian man and together with her co-worker/friend Zelda Fuller (Octavia Spencer) devise a plan to rescue the doomed creature from the real monsters of the laboratory.

"The Shape of Water" shall be released in theaters starting on December 8th.

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER -- an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
