"Have you been bad?" Fox has revealed a second teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counselor, the drug drama starring one hell of a cast, including Michael Fassbender as the lead. This has only a few slightly different scenes and lines of dialogue than the fantastic first teaser trailer, but it's still worth watching. Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem also star, with Penélope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. I love all the dialogue in this, like that line about "then you don't have any friends." This looks so damn dark and deceptive and seductive and the best part is these trailers don't show too much, just enough. I hope they keep it that way.
Here's the second US teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counselor, first found via RopeofSilicon:
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. Can't wait to see this.
