Michael Shannon has one hell of a screen presence. Whether its that he towers over his co-stars standing at 6'3", the fact that his jaw looks like it's made of concrete, or that he has a habit of playing mentally unstable characters, whenever Shannon is on screen you can't help but feel a little bit nervous. Hence why he was probably the perfect choice to play Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski, a hitman who killed more than a 100 people over the course of his career.

With The Iceman set to premiere at the Telluride Film Festival before traveling to Venice and Toronto, Millennium Films has released the first promo trailer for the crime drama, which co-stars Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, David Schwimmer, Ray Liotta, Stephen Dorff and Robert Davi. Check out the preview below and be warned: this trailer wasn't rated by the MPAA so it has quite a bit of violence and language and therefore probably isn't suitable for at-work viewing.

Directed and co-written by Ariel Vromen (Danika), The Iceman tells the true story of Richard Kuklinski, a contract killer who over the course of a 38 year career killed between 100 and 250 men (he refused to kill women and children). The twist of the story, however, is that despite living such an active professional life he was able to keep his wife and daughters completely in the dark about what he did - that is, until the day he was arrested. While Millennium is handling the international release, the film is currently looking for distribution in the US and does not yet have a release date.
