What is Ridley Scott + Cormac McCarthy + Brad Pitt + Michael Fassbender? The answer is the upcoming thriller The Counselor. The first teaser of the movie has just been released (initially only available in Russian– блин!), and all we can say is this movie looks intense.
Directed by Ridley Scott and penned by No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy, The Counselor tells the story of a lawyer (Fassbender) who gets involved in drug trafficking. Along the way, he meets the likes of Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz, who plays his love interest.
The trailer is only 44-seconds long, but it is incredibly action-packed. From dead bodies on highways to a crazy-haired Javier Bardem (seriously, does this guy ever play a role that involves normal hair?), The Counselor looks like the Southwestern answer to Scarface. We see both cheetahs and Cameron Diaz in a cheetah-print dress, crawling across the hood of a bright yellow sportscar.
The Counselor is set to be released on October 25.
