We all know that Michael Shannon is good at what he does; he’s one of the very best character actors around. Armed with a nerve-shredding persona and haunting facial expressions, when he speaks, we listen.
A new trailer has been released for The Iceman, which is based on the true story of Richard Kuklinski, a family man and hired killer. His story is truly fascinating because his family were blissfully unaware of his dark secret, spanning two decades, and by the time of his arrest in 1986, he had killed over 100 people.
The trailer is gripping and very informative, we develop an excellent understanding of not only Kuklinski’s double life, but also his constant shift in priorities, and finally, his weakness. It’s a terrifying concept how a cold-blooded killer can be so efficient that his family not only idolise him, but never suspect a thing.
The film also features an all star cast including – Chris Evans, Wynona Ryder, James Franco and Ray Liotta.
The Iceman is due for release in the US on May 3, and in the UK on June 7.
