New trailer released for THE SNOWMAN

A new international trailer has been released for the upcoming Jo Nesbø adaptation The Snowman.

In the trailer, we get a more comprehensive look at the plot, which follows Norwegian detective Harry Hole as he investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.

The Snowman is directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In), and stars Michael Fassbinder, Rebecca Ferguson, Val Kilmer, David Dencik, Sofia Helin and Jakob Oftebro.

While we are not totally sold on the fact that the Norwegian story is shot in English (note in the trailer they even change the signs on the Oslo trams from Norwegian to English), or the fact that Michael Fassbinder is a convincing Harry Hole (he’s just a little too pretty), but this trailer is pretty darn exciting. Even more so because we get to see Bergen (Cinema Scandinavia HQ) in the film! Check out the opening shot of Mount Ulriken and the TV tower for a taste of the West Norwegian town. In Bergen, we’ve had promos going up for The Snowman all over town, which you can view below. But first, watch the trailer and tell us what you think:

    The trailer does seem to promise suspense and lots of action. MF should be able to pull the character off, but, yes, he is a bit pretty for the role. So long as he keeps aloof and raw, it should work. Keep all things Norwegian in the film, dammit! It’s sad enough the movie is in English. I guess we,as viewers, are all considered unable to mix the two cultures if necessary. Long live Cinema Scandinavia! I look forward to every email. Best Wishes!
