Take a look at the first full-length trailer for The Counselor, the latest film from director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Prometheus…you should know who he is). The trailer certainly shows off what looks like a robust thriller. There seems to be twists and turns everywhere you look, and there’s even a shoot-out or two by the looks of it. There’s quite a cast attached to Cormac McCarthy’s (author of No Country for Old Men and The Road) first foray into screenwriting. Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz? Yes, please.
Check out the trailer:
Thanks to Cinemablend:
It is the story of a lawyer, the Counselor, a man who is so seduced by the desire to get rich, to impress his fiancee Laura, that he becomes involved in a drug-smuggling venture that quickly takes him way out of his depth. His contacts in this are the mysterious and probably corrupt Reiner and the seductive Malkina, so exotic her pets of choice are two cheetahs. As the action crosses the Mexican border, things become darker, more violent and more sexually disturbing than the Counselor has ever imagined.
Also starring Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic.
ETA: USA – 25 October, 2013.
