Telluride 2012: Michael Shannon in The Iceman, trailer
As Sasha takes off to Telluride and we wait for official announcement of the festival’s full slate, The Iceman trailer arrives to help us chill.
“The Iceman” is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nickname by freezing the bodies of his victims, disguising the time of death, and throwing police off-track. He was a man who used his tendencies toward violence and detachment from consequence to create an idyllic family life. His family and neighbors believed he was an average businessman, having no idea about his deadly alternate life. Kuklinski killed over one hundred people during his life. He never felt remorse for anything he had done, except hurting his family.
Written and directed by Ariel Vromen. Starring Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Ray Liotta, Winona Ryder and James Franco.
