Yesterday we showed you the poster for the new Michael Fassbender-led thriller The Snowman, which co-stars Rebecca Ferguson and is directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). This morning, there's a trailer. Check it:
This is based on a Norwegian best seller by Jo Nesbø, and I'll be candid: I don't really know what in the name of Lisbeth Salander is going on up in Scandanavia, but is there some kind of motif happening up there? "I'm thinking he's going after women he disapproves of." Oooooof.
The plot, according to Coming Soon:
When an elite crime squad’s lead detective (Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.
If you swapped out all the players involved, this borders on a hard sell. But Fassbender and Ferguson, directed by Alfredson? We're there. (JK Simmons, Val Kilmer, and someone whose voice is a little too recognizable in the above trailer also co-star.)
The Snowman opens October 20th.
