Trailer released for thriller The Snowman, starring Fassbender, Kilmer

Here’s a film that flew under my radar for 2017, The Snowman. This thriller stars an A-list cast in actors Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer and Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons.

The Snowman, directed by Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), is a thriller based on Jo Nesbø’s novel by the same title, and its official summary is as follows:

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 (Rebecca 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.

There’s potential here with its premise alone. I think this is a cast that can work well together under the circumstances of a who-done-it film. View the trailer below:

Here’s to hoping this isn’t a generic thriller.

The Snowman is expected to release Oct. 20, 2017 (not December, which would’ve been fitting, honestly).
