We’ve already seen an The Counselor, the new film from director Ridley Scott, written by Cormac McCarthy and starring a stellar cast, which includes Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt.
The film centers on a present-day Southwest lawyer (Fassbender) who thinks he can dip a toe into the drug business without getting sucked down. A bad decision. He tries his best to survive it and get out of a desperate situation, but can he?
The film is due in theaters on October 25 and I can’t help but cross my fingers and hope this debut is only the start of buzz leading to the upcoming Toronto Film Festival line-up announcement next Tuesday, July 23. I’m praying this one premieres up north.
For now, check out the trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments.
