The trailer for The Counselor has arrived and if the film doesn’t have the best pedigree of the fall, I don’t know what does! The film stars Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz (soon to be a Bond girl!), Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender (soon to be seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Cameron Diaz.
Oh, did we mention it is based on the original screenplay by No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy and directed by Ridley Scott? Yeah, that.
As we first learned in The Counselor international trailer, the film that follows a lawyer who winds up leagues over his head in the drug trade lands October 25 and firmly places itself in the running for those elusive Oscar nominations. Having two winners and three nominees doesn’t hurt its awards run either.
