The Snowman is far from a charming Raymond Briggs animation this time, but centres around Detective Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender), investigating the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman… Plus, she’s lost her head.
This trailer looks quite a silly thriller, which marks a departure for MF’s usual serious roles, but there could be something in this.
Being a horror movie, The Snowman is due in UK cinemas on October 13th, so just over 2 weeks before Halloween.
Director: Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
Also stars: Rebecca Ferguson, Val Kilmer, Chloë Sevigny, JK Simmons, Jamie Clayton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, James D’Arcy, Toby Jones, Sofia Helin, Ronan Vibert, Anne Reid.
