The first red band trailer for Filth, the adaptation of Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name, really showed a wild and crazy James McAvoy as a bipolar, sex-crazed, drug-riddle police officer. Now we get even more craziness in the film from Green Street Hooligans director Jon S. Baird, complete with a wacky Jim Broadbent, a seemingly nervous Jamie Bell as McAvoy's partner and British character actor Eddie Marsan. This looks trippy and peculiar, but we wouldn't expect anything less from an Irvine Welsh novel. Between this and Trance, it's been quite an adult-themed year for McAvoy. Fire it up below!
Here's the crazy new international trailer for Jon S. Baird's Filth, direct from YouTube:
Filth is a crime comedy written & directed by up-and-comer Jon S. Baird (Green Street Hooligans, Cass) based on the novel by Irvine Welsh (of Trainspotting). The plot involves a bipolar bigoted junkie cop, who manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive season in a bid to secure promotion and win back his wife and daughter. James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Kate Dickie, Eddie Marsan and Imogen Poots all star. Clint Mansell, who recently finished work on Park Chan-wook's Stoker, composed the score for the film. Filth will be released September 27th in the UK, but still doesn't have a US release date yet. Interested?
