In a little over a month, Ridley Scott’s crime drama The Counselor will arrive in theaters. It’s unclear now whether the film will turn out to be an Oscar contender or not but the film has a lot going for it that makes me want to believe this will be an outstanding. Not only is this Cormac McCarthy’s first original screenplay but also the cast is outstanding. To continue building anticipation, Fox has released new images and the first official poster for the film. Check them out below.
The Counselor tells the story of an attorney (Fassbender) who decides to get involved in the drug trade to earn some quick cash. He teams up with a rich acquaintance (Bardem) and shortly realizes how much danger he’s in. The film also stars Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Natalie Dormer, John Leguizamo, and Rosie Perez.
