Netflix has shared the official teaser trailer and poster for director David Fincher‘s The Killer, opening in select theaters in October and launching on the streaming service November 10.
The Killer is rated R for strong violence, language and brief sexuality. You can watch the trailer using the player below and you’ll find the full poster underneath.
Netflix describes the film as follows: “After a fateful near-miss an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal.”
Fincher directed the movie from a script by Andrew Kevin Walker, who based the screenplay on graphic novel series The Killer, written by Alexis Nolent (a.k.a Matz) and illustrated by Luc Jacamon.
The graphic novel was originally published in the French language by Editions Casterman. The producer of the movie is Ceán Chaffin.
Chairman of Netflix Films Scott Stuber previously talked to Variety about the upcoming film. “It’s a really provocative and interesting movie,” Stuber said about Fincher delving into the mind of the deeply disturbed. “It is about the methodology of that world, which David details better than anyone.
“He’s so good in the detail of method… of watching something unfold. It’s a really fun, big movie in the hands of one of the best filmmakers.”
After directing music videos such as Madonna’s “Express Yourself” and “Vogue,” Fincher turned his attention to films and made his debut with Alien 3.
The filmmaker’s credits include Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, Mank, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl.
Fincher’s work also includes serving as executive producer and director for Netflix series House of Cards and Mindhunter.
He recently executive produced and co-created alongside Tim Miller the animated Netflix series Love, Death + Robots and executive produced the Netflix series Voir.
