I have to be honest, the synopsis of this film reads like the opening voice-over of Law & Order:
When an elite crime squad’s lead detective 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, 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.
Based on the novel of the same name by Jo Nesbø, The Snowman stars Michael Fassbender as detective Harry Hole, and centers on his pursuit of a serial killer named…The Snowman! The trailer provides some pretty nice shots, but this film definitely reminds me of Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Wind River. The Snowman also stars Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons, Toby Jones, Chloë Sevigny, and Val Kilmer.
The Snowman hits theaters on October 20th, 2017.
