The Counsellor Teaser Online
Fassbender gets into big trouble...

As Walter White can tell you, dabbling in drug dealing can be bad for your health. It’s a lesson that cocky lawyer Michael Fassbender clearly hasn’t learned in this first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counsellor

With Scott directing Cormac McCarthy’s script, the film also comes laden with acting goodness as Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Goran Visnjic, Bruno Ganz, Natalie Dormer and even Breaking Bad’s Hank, Dean Norris, show up in a tale of crime, corruption and one man getting into very deep doo-doo.

Despite his belief that he can get involved with narco-trading, make a mint and pull the escape cord any time he likes, Fassbender’s main man soon ends up in real trouble, on the run from seriously nasty people. As Bardem says, “You won’t see it coming.” Oh, and because we're nice, here's a bonus look at the first pic of Fassbender from the film...

With Scott on slick form and Bardem adding to the series titled Javier’s Mad Hair (here he looks like he’s been sticking his fingers in plug sockets), The Counsellor (the official press release gives it the British two Ls, so that's what we're using) promises to be entertainingly sleek and tense. It’ll hit our cinemas on November 15.

Harsh?
Poor Mr Scott. Okay, Prometheus wasn't what it could/should have been. Robin Hood was decent, but the Glaswegian/Scouse/Sheffield/Geordie/Cockney/Dorset accent by Crowe condemned the film completely. But to write him off is a little harsh. I can't help but think that his brother might have been a good choice to direct. Could this be done in homage? More

correction
Scott is not on slick form: prometheus, robin hood, body of lies, american gangster, a good year, matchstick men, kingdom of heaven and black hawk down have all been average films. This Councellor looks great with a great trailer but then again so did Prometheus. Cormac McCarthy is excellent though so let's hope that his story will bring to the film what Scott has been missing since Gladiator. More

Just a teaser I guess... but not a good one, at that. Great cast though. More

"from the director of Prometheus"
hmmmnnn... not sure that's going to have the intended affect. More
