    REBECCA FERGUSON COMES IN FROM THE COLD IN “THE SNOWMAN”
    via press release

    2472_FPT_00035_AR.jpg

    Following a breakout performance in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, European actress Rebecca Ferguson now stars opposite Michael Fassbender in Universal Pictures' new suspense thriller The Snowman.


    Based on Jo Nesbo's global bestseller, The Snowman will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Trinoma, Glorietta 4, Market! Market! and Fairview Terraces) starting November 22.


    In the film, when an elite crime squad’s lead detective, Harry Hole (Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit, Katrine (Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

    “Harry becomes fascinated by Katrine because she is so passionate about her work,” director Tomas Alfredson explains. “She is concentrated on cases she’s been studying—ones in which women have disappeared simultaneous to the snow falling. Of course, it seems to be an odd coincidence and an odder theory. But Harry becomes interested in what she has to say and drawn into her theory. They uncover more about this serial killer who leaves a business card in the form of a snowman—one that is turned toward the victim’s house.”

    The older cop and rookie are not only bound together by the plot, they also share certain traits, as Ferguson explains. “Harry recognizes himself in her,” offers producer Robyn Slovo. “When they meet for the first time there’s a definite connection between them, born out by the fact they are very similar. They both struggle to interact with other people. I wouldn’t say she’s specifically outcast, but she definitely sticks to herself and has hidden agendas as a motivation. She has a drive, a real will to work as a policewoman, and she believes in what she’s working toward.”

    “Harry’s inspired by her,” agrees Fassbender. “She’s a passionate police officer and he feels like there’s a lack of that in the police, where people are increasingly complacent.”

    Their first meeting takes place in the police station’s smoking room; it is Katrine’s first day at Oslo’s busy police headquarters. Katrine stares at him in surprise, recognizing him, but finding it hard to believe it’s the legendary Harry Hole. Her disappointment is evident, and it seems the tone is set, but as the story progresses it becomes clear that their connection runs a lot deeper.

    “What’s interesting about the relationship is that it’s quite unexpected,” explains Ferguson. “If you imagine this idea of a man who is supposedly the best detective in Europe—and in comes this semi-drunk—it’s a confusion of emotions for her when she meets him. She’s studied his cases. He’s the one she’s putting her faith into, and she’s balancing this with her own agenda. It’s a beautiful connection between them. It is man/woman, father/daughter. It balances all kinds of relations.”

    What did Ferguson see in Fassbender’s interpretation of Harry Hole? “I can’t even see how anyone else can play Harry now,” she reflects. “Michael finds the subtlety and makes him into this incredible detective with enormous vulnerability. He balances emotions that are real. There are so many layers to Michael’s acting, and we can interpret it however we wish. He is absolutely phenomenal.”

    The Snowman is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

    FASSBENDER PLAYS FLAWED DETECTIVE HARRY HOLE IN “THE SNOWMAN”
    via press release

    2472_TP_00047_R_CROP.jpg

    Selecting the actor to portray protagonist Detective Harry Hole for Universal Pictures' suspense thriller The Snowman was always going to be complex process. When news first got out that the character would be adapted for screen, the rumor machine went into overdrive—with speculation rife as to who was going to manifest this literary sensation.

    Based on Jo Nesbo's global bestseller, The Snowman will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Trinoma, Glorietta 4, Market! Market! and Fairview Terraces) starting November 22.

    For Michael Fassbender, there was never any question about wanting to portray Harry. The role presented the actor with his first detective. “At the time of the script arriving at my door I didn’t know anything about him,” admits Fassbender. “It was a totally new world for me. Then I started to expose myself to the books and the world that Harry occupies, and I’ve become very fond of the character.”

    That said, ahead of playing Harry, Fassbender was wary of reading the books. “The script is independent of the book, and I didn’t want to get attached to things that were in the book but not in the script. I did, however, read the beginning, to get an idea of where this character started, what Jo’s version of him was. I just wanted to see where those raw characteristic traits were—the description of him and his physicality.

    “It’s difficult to improve on someone’s experience of reading the book when you are making the film,” Fassbender continues. “As a reader you are filling in a lot of the blanks. The descriptions of the murders can be a lot more horrific and haunting because our imaginations are much more vivid, scary and twisted than what you see in cinema.”

    Fassbender appreciated Harry’s quirkiness, which comes down to the character’s social ineptitude. “He’s cool but doesn’t try to be cool; he’s very much his own individual. Harry does what he does because he has his own compass; it doesn’t bother him what other people make of him. While sensitive he’s not necessarily interested in being socially accepted, even in his workplace. He’s a bit of a loner and forces people to put in more hours than they might like to.”

    In the film, a sociopath who calls himself “The Snowman Killer” has targeted the one person for whom he wants to show off his methodical, unthinkable skills: the lead investigator of an elite crime squad. With cunningly simplistic baits such as “Mr. Policeman, I gave you all the clues…” he begs to have a worthy opponent to play his sick game.

    For Detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), the murder of a young woman on the first snow of the winter feels like anything but a routine homicide case in his district. From the start of the investigation, The Snowman has personally targeted him with taunts—ones that continue to accompany each new vicious murder.

    Fearing an elusive serial killer long-thought dead may be active again, the detective enlists brilliant recruit Katrine Bratt (Ferguson), to help him connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new ones. Succeed, and they will lure out the psychopath that’s been watching them from the shadows for who knows how long. Fail, and an unthinkable evil will strike once again during the very next snowfall.

    The Snowman is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
