There’s a new dark thriller coming out called The Snowman. Before you run away from this article, let me assure you that it is not a sequel to Jack Frost! This one is based upon a novel by Jo Nesbø and directed by Tomas Alfredson (director of the modern classic, Let the Right One In). It has some excellent actors in it too, including Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, J.K. Simmons, and Val Kilmer.
Here is Universal’s official synopsis for the film:
“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.”
