9 New Images from Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender

     July 25, 2013


Nine new images have been released for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor. The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine. The film’s screenwriter and the excellent cast (which also includes Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic) are encouraging aspects, but Scott is the wild card, and I’ve learned to keep my expectations in check when it comes to his latest movies.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The Counselor opens October 25th.

    To be able to ruin a script such as one written by Cormac McCarthy would display a remarkable lack of film-making abilities – or remarkable talent. In any case, Scott has never disappointed me, direction-wise. Sure, some of the scripts he’s had to work with have been … lacking (to put it mildly), but let’s not blame him for that. Scott can do crime. Just look at American Gangster.
