After hitting the no1 spot at the box office in Scotland and with less than 5 days until it hits cinemas in the rest of the UK, we’ve got a new clip and new TV spot for the hotly anticipated FILTH. Directed by Jon S Baird and based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, FILTH stars James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent and Eddie Marsan and is in Scottish cinemas now and the rest on the UK on 4th October.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
Based on the book written by Irvine Welsh and Directed by Jon S. Baird, Filth is produced by Ken Marshall and Jon S Baird
