New Trailer For Ridley Scott's The Counsellor
Cormac McCarthy has some advice for you...

The Counselor or The Counsellor? It depends if you're American (the former) or British (the latter), but really, it doesn't much matter. All that counts is that this is Ridley Scott directing a Cormac McCarthy script, with Michael Fassbender starring alongside Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt. Feast your eyes on its first full-length trailer below.

The film also comes laden with slightly less well-known acting goodness in the form of Goran Visnjic, Bruno Ganz, Natalie Dormer and even Breaking Bad’s Hank, Dean Norris, who all show up in the No Country For Old Men writer's 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.”

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.

RE: If this one disappoints....
So you haven't seen Matchstick Men, and you're ignoring the directors cut of Kingdom of Heaven? You sound smart. Especially if you think Prometheus wasn't affected by a script rewritten by 4 people. More

If this one disappoints....
Then I'm afraid it should be time for Sir Ridley Scott to retire from directing for good. The last truly great film he made was GLADIATOR (2000). I haven't seen neither MATCHSTICK MEN (2003) nor AMERICAN GANGSTER (2007) yet, though BLACK HAWK DOWN (2001) was decent. Oh, and it was HIS fault that PROMETHEUS was a dreadful disappointment. Not Damon Lindelof. More

The Prometheus trailer looked great too!
I say no more. More
