David Fincher’s new film The Killer debuted to mixed reactions when the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival this year. Then, in the review from our own Chris Bumbray, he says it may not be one of Fincher’s best, it’s still calculated and expertly assembled as only Fincher can do. Netflix has now unveiled the newest trailer for the streamer’s original film starring Michael Fassbender. In this trailer, we get slightly more details on the plot, but we are totally immersed Fassbender’s assassin thought process with his inner monologue guiding us through the preview.

The official logline from Netflix reads,
“After a fateful near-miss, an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal.” 

The film sports a cast with acting talents such as Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte and Tilda Swinton. The screenplay is written by Andrew Kevin Walker. His script is based on the graphic novel series The Killer written by Alexis Nolent (a.k.a Matz) and illustrated by Luc Jacamon, originally published in the French language by Editions Casterman. And Ceán Chaffin is credited as the producer.

Since Gone Girl, Fincher has been dabbling in television with his series Mindhunter, which was a big hit for Netflix. He would also executive produce and direct an episode of Love, Death & Robots, also for Netflix. Then, in 2020, he would work with Gary Oldman on Mank, about the 1930’s screenwriter of Citizen Kane.

In his review, Bumbray stated, “In a lot of ways, The Killer feels like Fincher’s attempt to deliver Netflix a more straightforward film as payback for them bankrolling his (excellent) passion project, Mank. Yet, audiences who catch this on Netflix shouldn’t expect a wall-to-wall action romp.” Then, he would conclude, “While The Killer isn’t top-tier Fincher for me because it feels like more of an aesthetic exercise than one of his truly great films, it’s still expertly assembled and entertaining. It also offers Fassbender a solid return to form after a slew of underwhelming films.”

The Killer hits select theaters today, then will be streaming on Netflix on November 10.
