Netflix on Tuesday dropped the teaser trailer for The Killer, David Fincher’s new movie for Netflix that has its world premiere Sunday in the Competition lineup at the Venice Film Festival. It then hits theaters on October 27 and launches on the streamer November 10.
The pic, based on Alexis Nolent (pen name: Matz) and Luc Jacamon’s graphic novel series, stars Michael Fassbender and is Fincher’s first feature since 2020’s Mank, also for Netflix, which scored 10 Oscar noms including Best Picture and won two.
Fassbender plays an assassin who battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt while insisting none of it is personal. Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte and Tilda Swinton also star. Andrew Kevin Walker adapted the graphic novel, which debuted in French via Casterman and was published in the U.S. by Archaia Studios Press in 10 volumes from 2006-2009.
Walker and Fincher previously collaborated on Se7en, Fincher’s twisty 1995 genre thriller hit that starred Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey.
