The Snowman gets Release Date and it’s currently filming in Norway.

It was 2011 when Tomas Alfredson debuted his stellar follow-up to Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Since then, he’s circled a number of projects that never got off the ground. However, today we finally have confirmation on what he’ll certainly be doing next — and when we can see it.

Universal Pictures and Working Title Films have announced Alfredson is confirmed for The Snowman, an adaptation of Jo Nesbø‘s novel, which kicks off production in January ahead of a Friday, October 13th, 2017 release. Led by Michael Fassbender, Rogue Nation‘s break-out star Rebecca Ferguson, and Charlotte Gainsbourg, we also have an official synopsis, which can be read below for the highly-anticipated project.
Michael Fassbender (X-Men series), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Resurgence) star in THE SNOWMAN, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on’s global bestseller. 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.”

THE SNOWMAN is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (The Theory of Everything, Les Misérables), as well as Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Piodor Gustafsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). A Working Title Films production—in association with Another Park Film—the thriller is executive produced by Nesbø, Niclas Salomonsson, Martin Scorsese, Alfredson, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger. The film, which starts principal photography on January 18, will shoot entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan.

Entertainment Weekly brings an exclusive first look at Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander in “The Light Between Oceans“.



Scandinavian screen siren Alicia Vikander and German-Irish leading man Michael Fassbender are all aglow in a newly released image from Derek Cianfrance’s period drama The Light Between Oceans.

Directed and adapted by Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Between the Pines) from M.L. Stedman’s novel of the same name, Oceans tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who find a baby and a dead body in a rowboat and decide to raise the child as their own in post-World War I Australia.

The film is one of several big-screen projects in the works for each actor, both of whom have bounced between prestige pictures and more mainstream fare with aplomb. Fassbender’s upcoming movies include X-Men: Apocalypse, Assassin’s Creed, and an untitled Terrence Malick movie, while Vikander will be seen in the next Bourne movie and Wim Wenders’ Submergence.

The Light Between Oceans, from DreamWorks and Disney, is due in theaters later this year.

Michael Fassbender attended the 2016 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala where he received the International Star Award. Here are the some pictures:

The first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has been released, it opens on May 27, 2016:


With movie credits that range from X-Men: Days of Future Past to Inglourious Basterds and 12 Years a Slave—which earned him an Oscar nomination—Michael Fassbender, 38, has become the go-to guy for great roles. Now he’s starring as the co-founder of Apple Inc. in Steve Jobs, currently in theaters. Here are five fun facts you might not know about the German-Irish actor.

  2. He served as an altar boy as a child.

  3. Growing up in Ireland, he wanted to be a lead guitarist in a rock band.

  4. Before making it as an actor, he worked for the U.K.’s postal service and as a bartender.

  5. He appeared in TV ads for Guinness beer in 2004.

“I didn’t really know much about him,” admits Michael Fassbender when asked about playing the title character in “Steve Jobs” (watch below). “I suppose the thing that really stuck with me was meeting people who knew him — John Sculley, Joanna Hoffman, Steve Wozniak, Andy Hertzfeld … You could see he was still very much present in their lives. Even if their relationships were difficult, there was a sadness and a love there for him.”

The film by Oscar champ Danny Boyle(“Slumdog Millionaire”) paints a complex portrait of the man as a brutal taskmaster with conflicting emotions about his family and his legacy. The actors credit the screenplay by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin(“The Social Network”) as an essential but demanding part of the process.

Recalls Kate Winslet, who plays Jobs’ marketing guru Joanna Hoffman, “I have to be honest, it was terrifying. I remember all of us walking into the room on day one of rehearsal when you’re trying out your accent and hoping to God that everyone else isn’t looking at you and thinking, ‘She’s shit’. When we walked onto the set, we had to be that well-oiled machine, we had to be ready to go, we had to have Sorkin-ese in our back pockets.”

That difficulty wasn’t lost on Sorkin. “Each of them, at at least one point in the movie, has a long list of things to say. I went over to Jeff [Daniels] and I said, ‘Michael’s a really big Irish guy. I think he’s going to beat me up.’ And Jeff, who had been doing this for three years with ‘The Newsroom’ stared at me and said, ‘I’m a really big Irish guy, and I’m going to beat you up.'”

“Steve Jobs” opens Friday (Oct. 9) in limited release with a nationwide roll-out to follow on October 23.
