Trivia for cinema and rental titles
Trivia: In the scene were Max and Annie talk about their potential future child, there's a throwaway line about child-actors not amounting to much later in life - a bit of an inside joke, as Max is played by Jason Bateman, the rare child-actor whose career actually improved after he became an adult.
Trivia: There were rumors right up until the release that the film was a prequel to the 2004 superhero movie "Hellboy" - in no small part because both films feature an amphibious man played by actor Doug Jones as one of the lead characters, and both films were also directed by Guillermo del Toro. Despite the widespread speculation, del Toro consistently denied any plot or character associations between "The Shape of Water" and the Hellboy films.
Trivia: Daisy Ridley, best known as the character Rey in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy, was originally the lead contender for the part of Lara Croft, but had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts. The role eventually went to "Ex Machina" co-star Alicia Vikander, who as it happily turns out is a big fan of the video-game series on which the film is based, and wanted to try her hardest to do the character justice.
