Gathering together to premiere their latest movie, the stars of “The Iceman” were on hand at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday night (September 10).

Female lead in the film Winona Ryder looked elegant in a simple black dress with open toe heels while her fellow male co-stars Chris Evans and Michael Shannon looked dapper for their red carpet appearance.

Shannon recently spoke with The Canadian Press about the project saying, "It's different now, for a long time when I did films I was supporting, a player, or cameo and now I've got a couple under my belt where, here I am, the title character, which is nothing I ever anticipated."

Though Michael and director Ariel Vromen knew he would be great for the character, Vromen had other concerns as the actor explained, “It's funny because when Vromen first started trying to put this movie together, he told me -- he was very candid -- he said, 'I would love for you to play this part but I don't know if I can get the financing with you in the part,' because you know, we all know how that works."

“The Iceman” is the true story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer and family man. It also stars Ray Liotta and is slated to hit theaters on March 14. Watch the trailer below!
