Nightmare Alley to premiere at Academy Museum of Motion Pictures; & and a new Nightmare Alley Book

Hi, blanchetters!

We are nearing the world premiere for Nightmare Alley but unfortunately we don’t have official date yet. Also new book on Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley is being released and you can check the details below.

Nightmare Alley to premiere at Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

According to Variety, Nightmare Alley will premiere at the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures located on the LACMA campus in Los Angeles

The museum is quickly becoming the hottest event space in the city. WIF will hold its annual awards gala there next week (October 6th 2021) followed by the premieres of “House of Gucci,” Ridley Scott’s drama starring Lady Gaga, and Guillermo del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley.”

Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley: The Rise and Fall of Stanton Carlisle

From acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro comes the stunning psychological thriller Nightmare Alley. Taking readers on a captivating journey through the making of the highly anticipated film, The Art and Making of Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley is filled with incisive commentary from the director and his creative team.

The book will be released on December 7th 2021 and is now available for pre-order at Insight Edition

Join Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro for an intimate exploration of his darkly electrifying psychological thriller Nightmare Alley.

Comprehensive and insightful, Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley: The Rise and Fall of Stanton Carlisle, is the ultimate companion to the master director’s latest work.

• DISCOVER A RIVETING STORY: Inspired by William Lindsay Gresham’s cult 1947 novel, Nightmare Alley stars Bradley Cooper as Stanton “Stan” Carlisle, a talented but troubled drifter who takes up with a traveling carnival. Ingratiating himself with its troupe of misfits, Stan swindles his way to fortune and fame, but when he meets psychiatrist Lilith Ritter (Cate Blanchett), his greed and duplicity will put him on the path to self-destruction. Also starring Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, and Rooney Mara, Nightmare Alley is del Toro’s most ambitious film to date, an engrossing yet disturbing journey into the psyche of a tragic swindler whose own nature seals his fate.

• EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS: This deluxe volume delves into the creation of all aspects of the film through extensive interviews with del Toro and his cast and crew, including writer Kim Morgan, with whom he collaborated closely on the script.

• NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN CONCEPT ART AND PHOTOS: This incisive commentary is illustrated with a broad range of striking visuals from the production—including concept art and unit photography—that illuminate the film’s two distinct worlds: the ramshackle life of the traveling carnival and the sophisticated art deco trappings of 1940s Buffalo, New York.

• INSIGHTS FROM DEL TORO HIMSELF: Tracing the arc of a production that faced multiple challenges, not least of all the onset of a pandemic that threatened to derail shooting, del Toro and his team give deep insights into the complex psychology of the film’s protagonists and the process of bringing them to life on set
