The following red band trailer for Filth starring James McAvoy has got the blogosphere buzzing over its content. The film looks like something of a Scottish version of Bad Lieutenant, which isn’t a bad thing and could be fun, especially with the likes of Eddie Marsan, Jim Broadbent and Jamie Bell contributing, but it could also be too much of a “bad” thing.
Comparisons to Trainspotting are being made, which is bound to happen considering the project is based on a novel from “Trainspotting” author Irvine Welsh with Jon S. Baird getting writing and directing credit.
As of now there is no release date either domestically or abroad, which tells me this one might be prime for a Midnight Madness premiere in Toronto this September. If so, I’ll do my best to check it out.
For now, check out the 18 certificate teaser trailer directly below along with the poster (via Hey You Guys).
