Today, the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film “Alley of Nightmares” has appeared online. The main roles in the film are played by Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper, Willem Dafoe, Toni Collette and more.

The plot of the film, based on the novel of the same name by William Gresham, is centered around the swindler Stan Carlisle (Cooper's character), who works as a carnival magician, and the psychiatrist Lilith Ritter (the character of Cate Blanchett). Carlisle impersonates a man who knows how to talk to the dead. In an attempt to get rich, he wants to trick the millionaire, but fails. After that, he meets Lilith on his way, who offers him her help.

This is not the first film adaptation of the novel. In 1947, the first film based on the novel by an American writer was presented.

“Alley of Nightmares” is Guillermo del Toro's first film in four years. In 2018, his picture “The Shape of Water” (after which there was a lull for four years) received an award in the nomination “Best Film” at the Oscar, and its creator himself became the winner in the category “Best Director”. Unlike many of Del Toro's other films, Nightmare Alley will not have any supernatural elements.

The world premiere of the film “Alley of Nightmares” will take place on December 2. Russian viewers will be able to see it in cinemas on January 27, 2022.
