Michael Fassbender stars in the upcoming film, “The Killer,” directed by David Fincher, and the first teaser trailer has been released, giving audiences a glimpse of what to expect. The movie is set to hit select theaters on October 27th and will make its Netflix debut on November 10th. Alongside Fassbender, the cast includes Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte, and Tilda Swinton.
“The Killer” follows a former deadly assassin (played by Fassbender) who becomes entangled in an international manhunt after a previous job goes awry. The script for the film is written by Andrew Kevin Walker, known for his work on “Seven,” and it is produced by Ceán Chaffin. The story of “The Killer” is based on a graphic novel series of the same name by Alexis Nolent (aka Matz) and Luc Jacamon, which was initially published in French by Editions Casterman.
The recently released teaser trailer provides a taste of the intense action and suspense that audiences can expect from the film. Fans of Fincher’s previous work, such as “Se7en,” will likely appreciate the dark and gritty tone set in “The Killer.” With Fincher at the helm, it is expected that the film will deliver a thrilling and visually stunning experience.
“The Killer” is set to premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival on September 3rd, further raising anticipation for its release. This film marks Fincher’s second project with Netflix, following the success of his 2020 feature “Mank.” “Mank,” which delves into the life of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, received critical acclaim and earned 10 Oscar nominations. Additionally, Fincher served as an executive producer for Netflix’s popular thriller series “Mindhunter.”
In terms of Fassbender’s recent work, he is widely recognized for his portrayal of Magneto in the “X-Men” franchise, most notably in the 2019 film “Dark Phoenix.” He has also appeared in movies such as “The Snowman” and “Alien: Covenant” in 2017. Fassbender is set to lead the cast of Taika Waititi’s upcoming soccer film, “Next Goal Wins,” which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and will be distributed by Searchlight Pictures.
As anticipation builds for “The Killer,” fans of Fincher, Fassbender, and suspenseful thrillers can look forward to a film that combines the talents of an acclaimed director and a talented cast. The teaser trailer offers just a taste of the intense and riveting story that awaits viewers. With its premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival and its subsequent Netflix release, “The Killer” is poised to become a must-watch for fans of the genre.
