I sit here in anticipation of The Counselor, sweet and cautiously trepidatious anticipation. Having felt a little burned by the failure of Prometheus to feel like a satisfactory product, I’m worried about Ridley Scott’s next film. However, with such a strong cast and Cormac McCarthy as screenwriter, I’m hopeful the things going for this film are strong enough to entertain its audiences.
The drama is, in true McCarthy fashion, a dark story told about a lawyer (Michael Fassbender), who thinks he can dip his toes into the business of the drug cartel without consquence. Plenty of colourful characters are along for the ride, making the lawyer’s journey less than ideal. I mean, check out the hair, man. Everyone’s hair is just car-azy. So, as you can see below, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz can also be seen in the movie.
The Counselor gets released on October 25th. Check out the images and new poster below.
