I’m a sucker for Fassbender. That being said, when I found out he was starring in The Snowman a year or so back, I went to Barnes & Noble and picked up the novel first. I liked the book so much, I’ve since read 3 others’ in author Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole crime novels. I have been drooling for this trailer for months now and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. The music for the trailer is perfect, the filming locations look beautiful and absolutely nothing is given away. In the simple words of Magneto, “perfection.” The cast includes Michael Fassbender as Detective Harry Hole, Rebecca Ferguson and JK Simmons to name a few. Combined with Director Tomas Alfredson known state side for his work on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, we’re in for an edge of your seat serial murder mystery thriller. I’d like to say I won’t watch another trailer for this flick because I’m beyond hyped for it and this was all I needed to see, but then again, I can’t control myself. If anyone needs me, I’ll be watching this trailer on repeat for the rest of the day.
It’s no secret that here at The Average Nobodies we are big Shia LeBeouf guys. We’ve been in his corner since day one and we aren’t leaving. Having said that, it should come to no ones surprised that we are tickled pink by Shia playing tennis legend John McEnroe. After the blockbusters-only start to his career, Shia seems to be only doing pieces that he find interesting and moving. In a Variety.com interview, he actually said that he cried the first time he read this script. Interesting show of emotions for a film like this, but I also cried during the oping credits of Wonder Woman, so who am I to call the kettle black. I’m always excited to see Shia get deep in a character, so this film particularly peaks my interest.
We are about 2 months away from the premiere and I can barely contain my erection. The visuals of this Star Wars flick is something like we’ve never seen before. It’s dark and bright all at the same time, it’s got power and passion oozing out of its characters and its all wrapped up in a nice bow made of nostalgia. Ask for more, you can not.
When this came across my desk (my iPhone) this morning I wasn’t sure what to think of it. These people living on their own in the middle of nowhere is crazy enough, now through in a few hundred giant jungle cats and you are bordering on insanity. At first, I thought this would be a feel good “nature vs. nurture” type of animal movie. The kind that shows these vicious beasts could be trusted….I thought that until “If Disney made The Swiss Family Robinson into a snuff film” critique. Sure enough, this movie isn’t at all what I thought. Here’s my question though, how in the name of Bill Paxton do you control that many wild animals on the set of a movie? I feel like 99% of this movie was freestyled and the actors were just trying to stay alive while on the set. Also, how the HELL do you insure a movie like this? I can see the proposal to the insurance company now…”Yeah so it’s this movie in the middle of the jungle and we have 150+ lions and tigers attacking humans……..CGI? No, they’re real lions and tigers.”
“No animals were harmed in the making of this movie”, ok, but what about humans?
Here is a live look at some behind the scenes/actual footage from the movie. Something tells me the blood is real.
