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, »

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. »

Michael Fassbender Is Hunted in First Trailer for ‘The Snowman’ (Watch)

19 July 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson are in pursuit of an elusive serial killer in first trailer for “The Snowman,” based on the thriller by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø.

Fassbender portrays crime squad detective Harry Hole, who discovers a beheaded victim on the first snow of winter. He’s told at the start of the trailer, “A woman vanished last night. We just found the body. And the head is missing.”

Fassbender is aided by a brilliant recruit, played by Ferguson, in his efforts to connect cold cases to the new one. “I’m thinking that he’s going after women that he disapproves of,” she notes.

The killer appears in the trailer to be tracking Fassbender and sending taunting notes. “He’s been watching us the whole time,” Fassbender says. “If we don’t find him, he’s never going to stop.”

The film is directed by Swedish helmer Tomas Alfredson, whose »

Michael Fassbender is on the Case in First Trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s ‘The Snowman’

19 July 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Director Tomas Alfredson returns with The Snowman, his first film since 2011’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Adapted from the novel by Norwegian crime-writer Jo Nesbø, The Snowman follows Harry Hole (yes, really), a detective with unorthodox methods who finds himself investigating the disappearance of a woman whose scarf was found wrapped around a snowman.

Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole (yes, really), and he leads a cast that includes Rebecca Ferguson, Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Gainsbourg, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer, James D’Arcy, and Toby Jones. An adaptation of The Snowman has been knocking around since at least 2013, when Martin Scorsese was first attached to helm the film, but then the Let the Right One In director took the helm and ahead of a release this fall, the first trailer has landed.

“It’s got that Scandi-noir element to it, for sure. I think it’s going to be very rich. I love working with Tomas Alfredson. »

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Is the First Slam-Dunk Oscar Contender of 2017

17 July 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was shocking.

Warner Bros. had played all the right notes with “Inception.” A summer blockbuster that quickly took on a prestige sheen, Christopher Nolan’s mind-warping actioner was easily one of the year’s best films. With overwhelming critical, popular and industry approval, it was instantly set on a crash-course for a best picture Oscar nomination.

A director bid, meanwhile, seemed a foregone conclusion, particularly in the wake of Nolan’s 2008 “The Dark Knight,” which came up short in the major categories and, in part, led to the film Academy’s decision to expand the best picture field to better accommodate movies of its ilk. But “Inception” was a step above in this regard, bravura filmmaking, the kind of entertainment directors only dream of conjuring (no pun intended). Nolan was secure.

Then: the nominations. Not only was Nolan passed over for directing, but somehow, a film built on its structure and editorial prowess was ignored by »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

‘Dunkirk’: 6 Movies That Prepared Christopher Nolan’s Go-To Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema

7 July 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hoyte van Hoytema has emerged as one of the great cinematographers of our time: cerebral, emotional, poetic. He creates texture and beauty with formal precision. He’s the thinking person’s cinematographer, who synthesizes the past and the present, but prefers shooting on film for organic, analog warmth.

No wonder director Christopher Nolan was drawn to the Dutch-Swedish cinematographer. They are kindred spirits, and their work on “Interstellar” and “Dunkirk” (shot mostly with the 15-perf IMAX film camera) recalls the scope and intimacy of the legendary David Lean and Freddie Young pairing on “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Doctor Zhivago.”

In all likelihood, “Dunkirk,” which portrays the heroic evacuation of Allied soldiers from German occupation during the early stages of World War II, should result in Hoytema’s first Oscar nomination. Shot from three perspectives — land, sea, and air — the footage we’ve seen thus far is breathtaking in its visceral force. »

Benedict Cumberbatch May Return For Sherlock Season 5 – But Only After Steven Moffat Resurrects Dracula

29 June 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With each year that passes, Benedict Cumberbatch’s (and indeed Martin Freeman’s) stock increases that little bit more.

For instance, when co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss blew the lid off their modern reinvention of Sherlock back in 2010, Cumberbatch was less of a Hollywood A-lister and more of a promising up-and-comer, scooping up roles in Atonement, Four Lions, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. But by the time the show’s fourth season premiered at the start of 2017, the Oscar-nominated Benedict Cumberbatch had cemented his place in Hollywood’s pantheon of acting talent thanks to performances across The Imitation Game, The Hobbit saga, and of course, Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

It’s the latter role, in particular, that has filled Cumberbatch’s slate for years to come, what with his Sorcerer Supreme due to appear in Thor: Ragnarok and next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. All of this has led »

Peter Beard, Andy Warhol, Grey Gardens family to feature in doc

21 June 2017 3:33 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Swedish director Göran Hugo Olsson directs project with Sfi backing.

Göran Hugo Olsson (The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975) is working on the feature documentary That Summer, centred on artist Peter Beard and his family of friends, who formed an enormously influential and vibrant creative community in Montauk, Long Island in the 1970s.

The film includes extraordinary footage from a project Beard initiated with Lee Radziwill about her relatives, the Beales of Grey Gardens, predating by years their depiction in the landmark Albert Maysles film Grey Gardens.

Andy Warhol also features in That Summer, and shot some of the newly unearthed footage, as did director Jonas Mekas, with additional cinematography by Maysles and Vincent Fremont.

Olsson and Swedish production company Story join production companies Louverture Films, Thunderbolt Ranch and Final Cut for Real on the project. Tobias Janson, Joslyn Barnes, Nejma Beard and Signe Byrge Sørensen serve as producers, with Beard serving as executive producer alongside Andrea Barron »
