The new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s psychological thriller Nightmare alley is here. The rich, humorous trailer gives us all del Toro’s trademark visual finesse with a noir twist – the only monster in this trailer is apparently the greed in the heart of Bradley Cooper’s con-artist character. Cooper buckles into a lie detector tester and says he’s a media and mind reader in touch with the beyond, but he might just be a really good huckster. Based on William Lindsay Gresham’s 1946 novel and its first film-noir adaptation from 1947, the film follows Cooper as Stan Carlisle, a traveling mind reader and deceiver who crosses paths with Cate Blanchett’s Dr. Lilith Ritter, a psychiatrist with dark intentions and excellent taste. in lipstick that breathes menacingly nothing into Cooper’s ear, such as “if you are dissatisfied with the right people, the world closes in on you very, very quickly.” Starring alongside Cooper and Blanchett are Willem Dafoe, Toni Collette and Rooney Mara (who unfortunately are not in the film to repeat their role in Carol). Nightmare alley has a cinema release date of December 17th. Fool your family into seeing it with you during the holidays by telling them it’s one Greatest Showman follow up and see what happens.
