Michael Fassbender Tracks Down a Killer in New Trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s ‘The Snowman’

5 September 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After Let the Right One In led to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Tomas Alfredson could have easily continued down a trajectory that saw him take on more prestigious awards season fare. Thankfully, he seems to be defiantly bypassing that entirely with The Snowman, which looks to be a shlocky, rancorous crime drama, I noted in our fall preview. Starring Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson as their characters uncover clues leading them to a serial killer, hopefully Alfredson’s distinctive formal style is on full display for this grim-looking procedural.

Ahead of a release next month, a new international trailer has landed for the thriller. Also starring Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Gainsbourg, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer, James D’Arcy, and Toby Jones, this one seems to be skipping the fall festival circuit entirely, but nonetheless I’m still looking forward to whatever Alfredson has in store. Check out the trailer below, along with a new poster. »

Anne Hathaway to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller “O2”

20 July 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Anne Hathaway in “Song One

Anne Hathaway is getting her “Gravity” on. The Oscar winner has signed on to star in “O2,” a “contained thriller with sci-fi elements” that Deadline compares to 2014’s “Gravity,” led by Sandra Bullock, and the 2010 Ryan Reynolds-starrer “Buried.” Like those two pics, “O2” will focus primarily on a single performer.

Penned by Christie LeBlanc, the project sees Hathaway playing a woman who

“wakes up inside a cryogenic chamber, with no memory of how she got there. She must escape the chamber before her air runs out,” Deadline summarizes.

A director isn’t attached yet. Hathaway is among the project’s producers. She’s joined by Suzan Bymel (“Designated Survivor”), Echo Lake’s Adam Riback and James Engle, and Im Global’s Stuart Ford and Greg Shapiro.

The source describes the amazing story behind LeBlanc’s script: The single mother from Quebec sent “O2” unsolicited to Riback and Engle and the Echo Lake team helped develop subsequent drafts with her. The script eventually landed on the 2016 Black List.

Hathaway seems to be gravitating towards roles that put a lot of work squarely on her shoulders. The “Les Misérables” actress is attached to star in and produce a movie version of the play “Grounded.” She appeared in a New York production of the single-actor drama at the Public Theater, which was directed by Julie Taymor. Her performance earned her a nomination for a Critics Circle Award. “Grounded” tells the story of a conflicted American Air Force pilot tasked with operating an unmanned drone.

Her other upcoming projects include heist thriller “Ocean’s Eight,” an adaptation of Jenny Mollen’s best-selling book “Live Fast, Die Hot,” and “The Lifeboat,” a crime drama directed by “Mustang” helmer Deniz Gamze Ergüven.

Anne Hathaway to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller “O2” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

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. »
