The Snowman Trailer

"He calls himself 'The Snowman Killer'… he's completely insane." Universal has unveiled the first trailer for a new serial killer thriller titled The Snowman, adapted from Jo Nesbø's bestselling novel, from Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). Michael Fassbender stars as the lead detective who investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter. He begins to believe there's a serial killer on the lose who may start killing again soon if he can't stop him first. The full cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, and J.K. Simmons. This was filmed entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan. Very intense trailer. This reminds me of both "Fargo" and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with a dash of Zodiac thrown in. I'm definitely curious, seems like there could be some good twists and turns in this. So who is the killer?

Here's the first trailer (+ two posters) for Tomas Alfredson's The Snowman, direct from YouTube:

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. The Snowman is directed by acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson, of the films Bert: The Last Virgin, Office Hours, Four Shades of Brown, Let the Right One In, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy previously. The screenplay is written by Hossein Amini and Matthew Michael Carnahan and Peter Straughan; based on Jo Nesbø's novel of the same name. Universal will release Alfredson's The Snowman in select theaters starting on October 20th this fall. What do you think of this?

Looks good...great cast. A big fan of Ferguson after her great work in the last Mission Impossible movie...

Cinematography looks pretty sharp. Not sure if I'll be seeing this though. Too grotesque.

Well if the enigma is interested, then color me interested as well! Cause that, my friend, is a PRETTY rare occurrence these days lol!

I'll be seeing this for sure. They were filming 10 minutes from where I live at the Atlantic Road, which is neat. Should look beautiful on film. (quick glimpse at 0:21) Stuff like that never happens here.

This was my first Nesbo book I read and have since read all of the this series. I hope we get a few more of these. They are really quite fun little stories.

Somebody here (The Honorable Raw) has written this is too grotesque. Among other things, yes. In fact, being a serial killer is grotesque in itself for me. But, it's the fear I'm thinking about. I mean, one usually doesn't have fear of serial killer but of losing a job. That's way this obvious grotesque is also misleading ...

Wait a minute, I coulda swore I already seen this trailer already. Wasn't there another movie just like this being released this year with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen in it?
