Last fall, Ariel Vroman's killer thriller The Iceman premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival (see the first trailer here), and the film finally gets a theatrical release this summer. The film sees Michael Shannon showing up on the big screen (before we see him as the villainous General Zod in Man of Steel) as Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who murdered at least 100 people, including at least 50 vagrants before he was 18 years old. Ray Liotta, Chris Evans (looking really disheveled and creepy), David Schwimmer and Winona Ryder co-star in the film, and it looks like it should be intense.
Here's the new trailer for Ariel Vroman's The Iceman from Millennium Entertainment (via YouTube):
Ariel Vroman directed The Iceman and also wrote the script with Morgan Land based on Anthony Bruno's biography The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer. The film follows Richard Kuklinski, loving husband, devoted father and ruthless killer. He is believed to have killed at least 100 people between 1964 and 1986, including more than 50 vagrants before he was 18-years old. Michael Shannon takes the title killer role with Ray Liotta, Chris Evans, David Schwimmer and Winona Ryder rounding out the supporting cast. The film premiered at TIFF in 2012 and hits theaters early this summer on May 3rd. Looking good?
