It seems it’s not only clowns we have to look out for over the coming months at the cinema.
Michael Fassbender has been teasing his new movie The Snowman, the adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s bestselling novel, and he reckons we won’t look at the snowy figures the same way again.
“I guess it’s the same thing as with clowns. Something that is supposed to bring joy becomes very creepy,” he told EW.
Fassbender stars in The Snowman as detective Harry Hole, part of an elite crime squad who are investigating the disappearance of a victim during the first snow of winter.
It leads Harry to fear that an elusive serial killer, who leaves a snowman at each murder scene, is back; and with the help of a brilliant recruit, he must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to catch the killer before the next snowfall.
Earlier this year, Fassbender teased The Snowman to us, saying he liked his character because he’s “flawed” and “very human”.
“Let’s say, if there was a fight sequence with somebody. He’s not Jack Reacher. He comes off the worse for wear a lot of the times in these encounters. And I like that. There’s something kind of funny about that,” he explained.
The Snowman is released in UK cinemas on October 13 and US cinemas on October 20.
