Guillermo Del Toro Is Back With Another One Of His Suspenseful, Visually-Striking Movies

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro is back with his first directorial at-bat since 2015’s “Crimson Peak.” This week, an official trailer for his new film, “The Shape Of Water,” was released. The movie looks equal parts science fiction, horror and romance. In the hands of most directors, juggling so many themes would be difficult, but Del Toro is the master of blending genres — I still get goosebumps from “Pan’s Labyrinth.”

The film follows Elisa, a mute woman, who is perpetually late — although her friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer) seems to help her out with that as much as she can. Elisa works in a science lab as a custodian and becomes curious about the experiments performed there, eventually meeting a government prisoner: an amphibious humanoid creature (who is totally not Abe Sapien from Hellboy) that her boss Strickland, (Michael Shannon) is intent on taking apart. You get the feeling Strickland is jealous because, according to his words, the creature was revered as a God in the Amazon. I’m guessing Strickland isn’t revered by anyone.

What appears to be the meat of the film is a love affair that begins to sprout between Elisa and the water creature.

Learning to communicate with the aquatic man through sign language and music, their bond solidifies and her desire to see the gilled one set free becomes her main objective.

The official art for the film leaves little to the imagination between Elisa and the waterman (water person?).

We can’t wait to see Del Toro’s new vision come to life!

Jamaica Beats Mexico At The Last Minute And Of Course There Were Memes

Mexico and Jamaica faced off in the semifinals of this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, with Mexico as the favorites, despite fielding a team composed of players from Liga MX (and one from Major League Soccer). A victory from Mexico would have resulted in a championship match versus their bitter rival, the United States, who defeated Costa Rica in the other semifinal.

But the “Reggae Boyz” had other plans. Goalkeeper Andre Blake made several keys saves to keep Jamaica in the match:

Blake had people slack-jawed.

Then, with less than 10 minutes left in the match, Kemar Lawrence  of Jamaica scored this beautiful free kick goal:

Mexico was unable to mount a last-minute comeback, and Jamaica made history:

Mexico fans were left in shock:

While others celebrated the upset by Jamaica:

Mexico’s infamous chant was reworked:

So was the iconic song “El Rey”:

If you were on Twitter and Insta when Mexico lost to Chile 0-7, some of these may look very familiar.

Others wondered why Mexican goalkeeper J.J. Corona didn’t make more of an effort to stop the shot:

Would things have turned out different?
