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

Nightmare Alley is the second film adaptation of the novel written by William Lindsay Gresham.
Most of the filming was done in Toronto as well as Buffalo.
“I wanted to find a city that was really interesting for an audience to visit, it wasn’t a city that they openly knew,” del Toro said of his decision to choose Toronto as the backdrop for the film.

Filming began in January of last year, but due to restrictions and Bradley Cooper’s busy schedule there was a delay of a few months.
There were film spots all over town with people tweeting their celebrity sightings. The photos show Toronto transforming in the 1940s, from vintage cars to actors’ costumes.
