The international trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s The Snowman, a murder mystery starring Michael Fassbender set in a desolate snowscape, delivers gore and intrigue.
Based on the Norwegian crime novel of the same name by Jo Nesbø, The Snowman promises a stylish edge-of-your-seat thriller with a killer cast. It stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, and J.K. Simmons. The film could probably be best described as Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs meets The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
The creepy trailer reveals that the killer’s victims are found without their heads, which are later discovered on top of snowmen, and that he is playing a game of cat-and-mouse with police detective Harry Hole (Fassbender).
When an elite crime squad’s lead detective 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, 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.
