The new international trailer for The Counselor, an upcoming star-packed movie from Ridley Scott, shows that the plot involves much more than just Michael Fassenbender watching rich people do rich people things. He’s definitely still going to do that though. The pet cheetah is still in the movie.
Normally a movie over-cast with stars relies on the actors to carry it rather than the story itself. That doesn’t appear to be the case with The Counselor. It genuinely looks awesome. Of course Badd Pitt in a cowboy hat is always a nice touch, and I’ll never complain about the addition of Penélope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.
Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men) have joined forces in the motion picture thriller THE COUNSELOR, starring Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author’s characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer’s one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.
