The poster for Guillermo Del Toro’s Nightmare Alley has been released. The dark period thriller stars Bradley Cooper and Cate Blancett and it hits theaters on December 17.
The poster is a close-up of Cooper, wearing a suit and hat appropriate to the movie’s 1940s setting, while behind him are several provocative posters for various carnival attractions. The ominous tagline simply reads, “Man or Beast.” Check it out below:

The poster arrives ahead of the Nightmare Alley trailer, which is expected later this week. The movie is based on the classic 1946 novel of the same title by William Lindsay Gresham, and the movie’s official synopsis reads, “An ambitious young carny with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words hooks up with a female psychiatrist who is even more dangerous than he is.” The novel was previously adapted into a movie back in 1947.
