A new trailer has landed for Ridley Scott’s new thriller, The Counsellor, and it is the longest trailer yet! However, while it may be the longest, it is not a patch on the previous trailer which delivered dark and intense moments galore. Sadly this new trailer feels like it is missing something, but thankfully it doesn’t stop me feeling 100% hooked on seeing it.
Ridley Scott directs the film, which is written by Cormac McCarthy. Now here’s the jaw dropping cast: Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, John Leguizamo, Rosie Perez, Natalie Dormer, Dean Norris, Goran Visnjic and Bruno Ganz.
The Counselor is due for release on 25th October 2013.
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.
