Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' Arrives
Has Ridley gone No Country? The very first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's latest film, The Counselor, has arrived and it's definitely something to check out, even though it's in Russian and only runs 50 seconds. But maybe that's all the teasing we need for this kind of movie. Show us just enough to whet our appetite and save the rest for later. The Counselor has a hell of a cast: Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and John Leguizamo. It's sort of described as "No Country for Old Men on steroids" about a lawyer in over his head after he gets involved in cocaine trade. Check this!
Here's the official US teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counselor, first found via The Film Stage:
Update: The trailer above is now in English, thanks to an official release via Fox. It's otherwise the same.
This intense drug thriller tells the story of an attorney (Fassbender), a good man in need of money who decides to dabble in the cocaine trade. The story heats up when he teams up with a rich acquaintance (Bardem) for the new business that also brings in a shady type (Pitt). Of course, things don't go as planned. The Counselor is directed by the legendary English filmmaker Ridley Scott, of Prometheus, Robin Hood, Body of Lies, American Gangster, A Good Year and Kingdom of Heaven most recently. The screenplay was written by author Cormac McCarthy, the writer behind No Country for Old Men and The Road. Fox will be releasing The Counselor in theaters everywhere starting October 25th later this year. Look good anyway?
