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.
