Nightmare Alley is the new psychological thriller from writer/director Guillermo del Toro, based on the 1946 William Lindsay Gresham novel (and a remake of the 1947 film). The movie, set in the strange world of carnival performers, features a highly acclaimed cast, with Bradley Cooper starring alongside Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara, Ron Perlman, Mary Steenburgen, and David Straithairn, among others. Originally, Cooper says, the allure of working with such a top-flight ensemble drew him into the film, though he says he soon found himself immersed in the film’s twisted reality.
