Awesome New Comic-Con Trailer for DC's Epic 'Justice League' Movie

22 July 2017 3:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"They said the age of heroes would never come again." "It has to." Warner Bros has revealed a new Comic-Con trailer for DC's Justice League, and it looks totally awesome, packed with action and plenty more. Justice League is the continuation of the Batman v Superman series in the DC Extended Universe, bringing together five super-powered beings: Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The extensive cast also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. As we all know, Joss Whedon has taken over finishing the movie since Zack Snyder had to step down for family tragedy reasons. As usual, there's some epicly cool shots in this worth admiring on their own. The line from Alfred about wind-up penguins is great, too. They've got my attention. »

The Snowman: serious film by serious people – or least spooky serial killer thriller ever?

20 July 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The trailer suggests Michael Fassbender’s Jo Nesbø adaptation is a high-tension, dread-laden thriller with one problem: it’s full of snowmen

The Snowman, which is due for release in October, absolutely drips with pedigree. It’s based on a Jo Nesbø thriller about a serial killer with a disturbingly unique calling card: he leaves snowmen next to his victims. Originally due to be directed by Martin Scorsese, it’s a movie from film-maker Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) that stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Toby Jones, with a score composed by Jonny Greenwood. The message is clear: this is a serious film made by serious people. As its new trailer demonstrates, The Snowman is intended to be taken very seriously indeed.

That said, it’s got loads of snowmen in it. Loads of them. Which is a risk, »

Let The Right One In Director Returns with Crime Thriller The Snowman [Trailer]

19 July 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

On paper, The Snowman sounds like a fairly generic thriller about two cops in search of a serial killer who likes to leave behind snowmen. I know. It sounds kind of dumb but this project has a whole lot going for it.

First off, it's based on a novel from Norwegian author Jo Nesbo who is also responsible for the rather brilliant Headhunters. The adaptation comes from Hossein Amini who also wrote Drive. The movie stars Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson as the two cops on the hunt for the killer along with J.K. Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, Chloe Sevigny and Val Kilmer.

Need further convincing? It's directed by Tomas Alfredson, the man who brought us Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy and the brilliant Let the Right One In.

The Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupThe Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupAmanda Wood7/19/2017 3:33:00 Pm

Today was a great day for cool movies that we almost forgot existed. Luckily, The Snowman and The Shape of Water both released trailers today that quickly reminded us both of their existence and how excited we are for their releases.

The Snowman comes from Tomas Alfredson, who brought us such high-intensity gems as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let the Right One In. It stars the always-excellent Michael Fassbender as a detective searching for an elusive serial killer who finds gruesomely creative ways to use the winter landscape as a tableau in which to display his victims. Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Chloe Sevigny, and Val Kilmer round out the cast. Catch The Snowman in Cineplex theatres October 20th. »

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).

The Snowman Begins His Reign Of Terror In First Trailer For Tomas Alfredson’s Crime Thriller

19 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Fassbender has come face-to-face with a great number of cinematic threats – unruly deities, the Knight’s Templar, and the Xenomorph…to name but three – but none quite like The Snowman killer.

Adapted from Jo Nesbø’s nervy page-turner, The Snowman is best described as a Norweigan crime noir that chronicles one detective’s pursuit of a demented serial killer. Legend has it that The Snowman has haunted Oslo for decades, and after a string of dead bodies begin showing up across town – all with their heads removed, we might add – it’s up to Michael Fassbender’s seasoned detective and a rookie (Rebecca Ferguson) to solve the case before the next snowfall.

Also starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, and J.K. Simmons, long before Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) signed on to direct, The Snowman actually piqued the curiosity of Martin Scorsese, who originally earmarked Leonardo DiCaprio and »
