Ex-FBI Profiler, Will Graham, is dragged out of early retirement, when a second family is cursed by a serial killer, who has a fondnes for doing his work, during the lunar cycle: when it 's a full moon.
By working the scene, he earns a lot about the Leeds' family.
Obviously, tha is novell that spawned the movie, Manhunter ( 1986), starring William Peterson ( Will Graham), Brian Cox ( Hannibal Lecter), Tom Noonam ( Francis Dolarhyde) Joan Allen ( Reba McClane.
Manhunter was going to be called Red. Not sure how close the Red Dragon movie, resembles the book, as I ca n't remember squat about it, for some reason.
Red Dragon ( 2002), starred Edward Norton ( Will Graham), Anthony Hopkins ( Hannibal Lecter), Ralph Fiennes ( Francis Dolarhyde), Philip Seymour Hoffman ( Freddy Lounds), Harvey Keitel ( Jack Crawford) and Mary-Louise Parker as Molly Graham.
Personally, I preferred Michael Mann 's 1986 movie adaption ( I 'll never forget the wheelchair scene.), which wer a budget of$ 15 million and took$ 8.6 million at the box office.
chronological order of the movies is: Manhunter ( 1986), or Red Dragon ( 2002), The Silence of the Lambs ( 1991), Hannibal ( 2001) and Hannibal Rising ( 2007).
Jody Foster did n't reprise her role as Clarice Starling in Hannibal, as she did n't realiz, she will have much of a part- was n't worth her participation- and she said to direct the movie ( amongst other things), so Julianne Moore, took over.The inspiration for Hannibal Lecter, is based on a real-life person ( who was n't a serial killer), Alfredo Balli Treviñi, who ha a Mexican doctor.
I oved The Silence of the Lambs film- watched it a multitude of times- and Anthony Hopkins was quintessentially cast as psychiatrist/serial killer, Hannibal Lecter.
Brian Cox 's role as Lecter was very good, as well.
