The first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s latest film The Counselor has finally arrived (courtesy of The Film Stage). The teaser trailer is definitely a tease because it only runs about 50 seconds long. The film has one hell of an ensemble cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, John Leguizamo, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, and Natalie Dormer.
The film, written by No Country For Old Men and The Road author Cormac McCarthy, tells the story of an attorney (Fassbender) whose life spirals out of control after he gets himself involved in the drug trade.
Judging from the brief trailer, this cinematography looks slick and Bardem’s hairstyle looks appropriately over the top. This has a lot of potential to be a fantastic crime drama. The cast alone leads me to believe that this film will be getting a great deal of attention this fall.
The Counselor arrives in theaters on October 25th.
