Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem star in McCarthy’s “The Counselor”
Crime thriller from acclaimed novelist directed by Ridley Scott
In his screenwriting debut, Cormac McCarthy, author of "The Road" and "No Country for Old Men" has penned a script about a lawyer who tries to get involved in drug dealing called The Counselor.
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt and is slated for an October 25 release in the States. In addition to the star-studded cast which also features Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and Natalie Dormer, Ridley Scott is directing, reuniting his talents with Fassbender after their work together on Prometheus last year.
The film follows Fassbender playing a high-powered attorney who comes into possession of $20 million worth of cocaine, which he finds difficult and dangerous to push out.
Here's the full trailer:
Below are three clips from the film. All one-on-one conversations between Fassbender and his accompanying characters, the first features Pitt with shoulder-length locks and the atmosphere of a drug negotiation.
The second is with Bardem featuring the next in a long line of ridiculous haircuts for the Skyfall actor, and the last is some pillow talk shared by Fassbender and Cruz.
