Ridley Scott's The Counsellor: new trailer
Michael Fassbender heads up a sterling cast in Ridley Scott's thriller, The Counsellor. Here's a new trailer...
After the off-world sci-fi of last year's Prometheus, director Ridley Scott comes back to Earth with rattle of machine gun bullets in the forthcoming thriller, The Counsellor. Although the spectacular cast is undoubtedly its chief selling tool - Michael Fassbender's joined by Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Brad Pitt, to name a few - those actors were, in turn, almost certainly attracted by the screenplay written by one Cormac McCarthy.
The author behind such brilliant novels as Blood Meridian, No Country For Old Men and The Road (the latter adapted into movies), McCarthy's turned to original screenwriting for this story about a lawyer (Fassbender) who finds himself in over his head when he gets into the drug trade.
We wouldn't be surprised if the film's far less action heavy than the trailer below implies, but then again, McCarthy's work is often full of frightening jabs of violence. And if you detect a vague whiff of Breaking Bad around the premise, we were excited to note that Hank Schrader himself - or rather, actor Dean Norris - is among the cast. Fabulous.
The Counsellor is out on the 15th November in the UK.
