The first reactions of “Nightmare Alley” praise the black of Guillermo del Toro

December 2, 2021

It’s a bold move for Searchlight Pictures studio to release Nightmare alley on December 17th, and while counter-scheduling can often yield decent deals, this is the riskiest bet of the year one-on-one with Spider-Man: No Way Home at the box office.

Of course, the two projects cater to entirely different demographic groups, with del Toro’s first feature since winning two Academy Awards for directing and producing The shape of water which should take audiences on tour through the seedy underbelly of the American Dream, where nothing is as it seems.
