Watch: Energetic New Red Band Trailer for 'Filth' with James McAvoy

June 7, 2013


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?

        Really? First of all I can tell by your immediate condescending and opinionated reply your probably like 20 years old so dont try to tell me how life is "big guy". Second of all, my reply had nothing to do with England or any other bs politics. This is a movie site, you wanna spread your meaning less xenophobia and hatred go to the youtube threads with the rest of your kind.

  • zengrrl
    I don't think I'll see this in the theater, but I probably will Redbox it.
  • The book is great, this looks good too. Quite a lot of stories within the book are based on Edinburgh folklore, I wonder if they'll put the one about the judge up Calton Hill in it?

    Looks like the British Bad Lieutenant.
