Here’s the second no-holds-barred (and hilarious trailer) for Filth, the dark comedy starring James McAvoy.  Written and directed by John S. Baird (Cass), the film is based on the novel by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting).  Welsh’s creative endeavours, ranging from plays to short stories, are driven by anti-heroes obsessed with their own misfortune and chaos.  Based on the two trailers for the film, McAvoy is probably gonna nail this.

The film also stars Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Shirley Henderson, Johanne Froggatt and Katie Dickie.  The film will hit UK theatres on September 27th; no US release date has currently been scheduled.

 Synopsis

Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
