A new trailer has arrived for The Snowman, offering up more footage from the upcoming detective thriller led by Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson.

This promising-looking picture is based on the book of the same name by bestselling author Jo Nesbø and tells of a detective (Fassbender) who teams up with a brilliant recruit (Ferguson) to track down a serial killer, one that may be connected to cold cases from decades ago.



Director Tomas Alfredson certainly knows how to craft beautifully shot, moody pictures, as evidenced by his great work on the Swedish vampire tale Let the Right One In and the spy drama-thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. We’ve got the right elements for a solid cat-and-mouse thriller here, with a damn good cast to boot. Fingers crossed.

The Snowman, also starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer and J.K. Simmons, arrives Down Under on October 19 and hits U.S. cinemas on October 20.

Official rundown for The Snowman:

Michael Fassbender (X-Men series), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Resurgence), Val Kilmer (Heat) and Academy Award® winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) star in The Snowman, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on Jo Nesbø’s global bestseller.

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 produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (The Theory of Everything, Les Misérables), as well as Piodor Gustafsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).

A Working Title Films production—in association with Another Park Film—the thriller is executive produed by Martin Scorsese, Alfredson, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger.
