‘Nightmare Alley’, the upcoming psychological thriller from the Mexican filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro, starring Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett, will not have supernatural elements, but it will be a dark story.
This comes from the Motion Picture Association of America who has given the film an “R” rating, In other words, it can only be seen by people 18 years of age and older because it contains strong and bloody violence, some content of a sexual nature, nudity and high-sounding language.
The R rating isn’t very surprising, considering the fact that Del Toro’s last two films, “Crimson Peak” and “The Shape of Water,” received the same rating.
Del Toro will break with his tradition of showing the monsters he has embraced with so much affection to focus on real monsters such as greed and betrayal, since the book on which he was based to create the script of the film is about a con man He goes to a carnival, that is where he meets a “mentalist” just as ambitious as he is and after making an alliance he begins to deceive hundreds of people.
