Following the sizzling recent US trailer, a new UK trailer arrived today for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor and it provides our best look at the film so far. For those unaware, the Cormac McCarthy-penned film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular lawyer who gets in way over his head with some heavy drug trade types, with Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt rounding out the stellar cast. I’m reluctant to get excited about a new Scott film — especially after being burned so bad by Prometheus last year — but this is looking most excellent (Breaking Bad meets No Country for Old Men?) and I’m hoping that an ace script by McCarthy will make all the difference.
The Counselor arrives October 25 in US cinemas and November 7 in NZ. Watch the new trailer below.
