U.K. Trailer for Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender

     August 20, 2013


The U.K. trailer has 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.  This new trailer goes deeper into the plot, and puts an emphasis on drama and character, especially when it comes to the supporting roles played by Penelope Cruz and particularly sinister Cameron Diaz, whose character clearly enjoys playing mind games and dishing out threats.  This is the best trailer so far, and I’m eager to see what Scott has in store.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Brad Pitt, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran VisnjicThe Counselor opens on October 25th.

    This looks like it could be Scott’s return to form but he’s been in a slump lately so I remain cautiously optimistic.

  • Yup

    Best Supporting Actress Nomination for Diaz?
    Looks possible is the substance matches this trailers style.

  • Matt

    Honestly the fact that they picked Diaz for the role and she seems to be owning it is a real shock. Perhaps this will lead to a Matthew McConaughey like revival in her career.

    • Arnold

      She’s always done light sily stuff ever since the start of her career. Do you want her to do more movies like Charlies Angels or Sweetest Things? McConaughey was seen as a good actor then started doing romcoms, Diaz has been doing them since the start of her career.

      Plus the character in this film is just a bit of sociopath she’ll get oscar buzz only because you don’t really see female sociopaths in movies

    • Arnold

      Also she she didn’t seem that impressive tbh

      • Strong Enough

        she humps a windshield in the movie. that is impressive

  • Reina

    mmm nice trailer. ANd yea, I’m surprised with Diaz’s casting and seemingly good performance..
    excited for the film. killer cast.
    And the cheetah thing going on with Diaz is interesting and I don’t know what to make of it.

    If the movie is as good as the song, it’ll be fantastic.
