Spinning Man: New trailer and poster for Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan thriller
A new trailer and poster have debuted for the upcoming psychological mystery film Spinning Man. The twisty thriller features a mix of notable names including Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver and relative newcomers including Odeya Rush (Lady Bird), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Freya Tingley (Jersey Boys).
Based on the novel of the same name by George Harrar, Spinning Man follows Evan Birch (Pearce), a family man and esteemed professor at a distinguished college where his charm and reputation have made his philosophy class very popular. When a female student named Hannah goes missing, Evan’s previous off-campus dalliances make his wife (Driver) question his alibi. Police Detective Malloy (Brosnan) has even more reason to be suspicious when crucial evidence makes Evan the prime suspect in Hannah’s disappearance. Suddenly, the questions Evan faces aren’t merely academic – they’re a matter of life or death.
During production in 2016, the film was originally set to be directed by Peter Flinth (Nobel’s Last Will) and star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game Of Thrones), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine) and Emma Roberts (Beauty And The Beast), however a cast and crew overhaul was made in April 2017 which ushered in the present names involved. The film is directed by Swedish director Simon Kaijser (Stockholm East) and written by Matthew Aldrich, who co-wrote the screenplay for last year’s Disney hit Coco. Ellen S. Wander (Marshall) and Keith Arnold (The November Man) tackle producing duties while Lionsgate Premiere is set to distribute the film in theaters.
Spinning Man is set to release in select theaters and On Demand on April 6, 2018.

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller Spinning Man, along with the first poster. Guy Pearce stars alongside Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver in this taut and twisty thriller, which serves as a gripping examination of crime, punishment, and conscience. While Guy Pearce's character may seem on the outside to be a harmless family man, he may be hiding a deadly secret.
Evan Birch (Guy Pearce) is a family man and esteemed professor at a distinguished college, where his charm and reputation have made his philosophy class very popular. When a female student named Hannah goes missing, Evan's previous off-campus dalliances make his wife (Minnie Driver) question his alibi. Gruff police Detective Malloy (Pierce Brosnan) has even more reason to be suspicious when crucial evidence makes Evan the prime suspect in Hannah's disappearance. Suddenly, the questions Evan faces aren't merely academic, they're a matter of life or death.
Director Simon Kaijser's taut and twisty Spinning Man also stars Jamie Kennedy (The Scream series, Ghost Whisperer) and Clark Gregg (The Avengers, Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.). It also features newcomers Odeya Rush (Lady Bird), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse, Straight Outta Compton), and Freya Tingley (Once Upon a Time). Simon Kaijser directs from a script by Matt Aldrich, based on George Harrar's book of the same name, with Keith Arnold and Ellen Wander producing. While April isn't always the busiest month at the box office, there will be plenty of competition for the R-rated thriller.
While Spinning Man isn't expected to get a nationwide theatrical release, it will arrive in theaters and on VOD formats April 6, the same date that Paramount's thriller A Quiet Place, Universal's R-rated comedy Blockers and Entertainment Studios' thriller Chappaquiddick. Also opening in limited release that weekend is Cohen Media Group's upcoming documentary Spiral and Great Point's drama Where's Kyra?. It will also arrive just over a week before the highly-anticipated adaptation of Ernest Cline's novel Ready Player One, which hits theaters on March 28.
