Michael Fassbender Is A Man Of Focus In First Trailer For David Fincher’s The Killer

The Killer

Execution Is Everything

Actor extraordinaire Michael Fassbender has been missing from the big screen since the X-Men: Dark Pheonix, but the Oscar-nominated thespian will be making his grand return this October. Directed by critically acclaimed director David Fincher, The Killer is a neo-noir thriller that follows an assassin as he handles business while grappling with his unraveling mind.

What Is the Killer About?

According to the official logline, The Killer follows a cold and solitary assassin who is methodical and unencumbered by flaws and shame and who moves about life one target at a time. He watches his victims from the shadows, looking for any vulnerability or opening. 

It’s a job for the cold-hearted and the patient, both of which he is. However, in the long hours of observing a target, the nameless killer begins to wonder if he is losing his mind.

This new film is a case study based on the French graphic novel of the same name by Alexis Nolent. At its heart, it is a brutal and bloody tale about a man alone in the world without morals alone into a fate he never could have prepared for.

Who Is in It?

Michael Fassbender stars as the titular killer, and this casting couldn’t be any more perfect because playing cold and intimidating characters is almost a natural attribute for the actor. If not for his voice-over in the trailer, one wouldn’t know what was running through his mind.

Also starring alongside Fassbender is Charles Parnell (Top Gun: Maverick), who plays the character Hodges. It’s currently unknown whether his character is connected to Fassbender’s in any way or a different sort of role.

Tilda Swinton also stars, although her character is yet to be named. Based on the brief glimpse of her in the trailer, she may be a target of The Killer.

Alongside these top-tier actors are Kerry O’Malley, Sala Baker, Sophie Charlotte, Emiliano Pernia, Arliss Howard, and Gabriel Polanco in supporting roles. A lot about this movie remains a mystery, including most of the characters, which is why only one is named so far.

Additional Information

The Killer is written for the film by Fight Club screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker and is a limited theater release. It’s scheduled to come out on October 28 and will land on Netflix two weeks later on November 10. 

The Killer will be the latest project from David Fincher in his partnership with the streamer, others being House of Cards, Mank, and Mindhunter. Paramount Pictures had acquired the film rights for the popular graphic novel in 2007, with Fincher attached to direct.

As stated above, this film will mark Michael Fassbender’s return to theaters following the box-office bomb X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The actor took an extended break from big-budget films after he took up auto racing in 2017. 

Don’t miss The Killer when it hits theaters on October 28 and then on Netflix on November 10. The first trailer can be seen below.
