Good hell, I am amazed once again by the incredible acting skills and talent of Michael Shannon who has become one of the great actors of this generation. An incredibly intense film clip has been released for his new film called The Iceman. The film is based on the true story of Richard Kuklinski, a notorious contract killer and family man, and the movie looks awesome.
I was already excited to see it, but after seeing this clip... my excitement level has shot through the roof. Just pay attention to how badass Shannon is.
Here's the synopsis:
“The Iceman” is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, “Revolutionary Road”), notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nick-name 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.
The film also stars Benicio Del Toro and James Franco. Iceman is set to premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival and is scheduled to get released in theaters in the fall. Watch the clip and tell us what you think!
