Guillermo del Toro Explores Cold War Creature In ‘The Shape of Water’ Trailer

The Shape of Water doesn’t have the genre bending spectacle behind Pacific Rim or Crimson Peak, but the trailer suggests a more intimate form of storytelling and del Toro has already made the brilliant master stroke of casting under utilized Sally Hawkins as its lead. Set in the Cold War era of 1963, Elisa (Hawkins) is a lonely woman who works in a high-security government that houses a highly classified experiment (frequent del Toro collaborator Doug Jones). When Elisa gradually bonds with this life specimen, her job, as well as this government secret is compromised. Michael Shannon and Octavia Spencer co-star in the highly anticipated flick. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think! The Shape of Water opens nationwide December 8.

Breaking Bad"s Season Finale: Fitting?

Were you one of the many, many people who watched the series finale of AMC's hit show Breaking Bad? If so, what were your thoughts? As fans of the show, we would have to say that the ending was quite fitting for the characters. It basically left very few questions unanswered. Warning, there are spoilers ahead for the series finale of the show. Please come back after you've seen Felina. Walt made his way back into town and his first stop was Gretchen and Elliott Schwartz.

He explains that he has hired the best hitmen to take them out if they don't follow through with his wishes. Later, he goes to see Lydia and Todd to try to convince them not to use methylamine in favor of his new plan. They basically ignore him and he leaves. He visits Skyler to give her a proper goodbye and sees his daughter Holly one last time. Later, we see Walt rigging some machine gun timer for his car. Then, he goes to visit uncle Jack and the crew under the guise of new business. He's frisked and then accuses Jack of partnering up with Jesse in making the blue meth. Jack parades Jesse out in front of Walt and he's shackled. Just then, Walt tackles him to the floor and hits his alarm, causing the place to be sprayed with bullets.

Afterward, Walt kicks the gun over to Jesse to shoot him, but Jesse won't. Instead, he grabs a car and leaves maniacally fast.
