"The Iceman" Trailer WILL Kick Your Ass

Via Latino Review

2012/13 is the Year of Michael Shannon, and I’ve been waiting a long time for it – Shannon has been the best “very-possibly-a-genuine-out-and-out-insane-person” actor in Hollywood for years, but he kept being so in movies nobody saw. That changes this year: “Premium Rush” is a theatrical bomb, but it’ll very, very soon be thriving on Redbox/Netflix/VOD where people will discover Shannon stealing the ENTIRE MOVIE with a over-the-top-and-then-some villain performance. And after that: He’s General Zod in “The Man of Steel,” which is garaunteed to at least open huge. So… welcome to being the new “guy fanboys want to play EVERY villain,” Mr. Shannon – you’ve earned it.

BUT before that, he’s also playing the title roll in “The Iceman,” a true-story crime flick about an infamous mafia contract-killer who gets in trouble when he starts taking freelance work. The film now has a trailer, and… Holy. Fucking. SHIT. Have you been jonesing for hardcore balls-out nasty mob-movie action? If so, it looks like your fix is coming…


Film is currently without a solid U.S. release date, but is slated to hit the festival circuit at Venice this weekend followed by a TIFF appearance.

    Wish I would've seen this trailer BEFORE scheduling my TIFF tickets.

    Anyway, this looks awesome and after “Take Shelter” I'm just trying to see every Michael Shannon film possible.

    Can you still buy singles when they go on sale Sunday morning, or is it a scheduling conflict? I'm definitely adding this one to my consideration list.
