Guillermo del Toro fans can rejoice as the latest trailer for his new movie Nightmare Alley has just been released and takes you back in time to Toronto in the 1940s.
The film is described as a neo-noir psychological thriller starring Bradley Cooper as a rogue named Stanton “Stan” Carlise who joins forces with a psychiatrist named Dr. Lilith Ritter, played by Cate Blanchet.

Nightmare Alley is the second film adaptation of the novel by William Lindsay Gresham.
Most of the shooting took place in Toronto as well as in Buffalo.
“I wanted to find a city that would be really interesting for an audience to visit, that was not a city they were openly familiar with,” del Toro says of his decision to choose Toronto as the backdrop for the film.

Filming began in January last year, but due to restrictions and Bradley Cooper’s busy schedule, there was a delay of a few months.
There were shooting scenes all over the city with people posting their comments about the celebrities on Twitter. The photos show Toronto being transformed back into the 1940s by vintage cars in the costumes the actors wore.
