A Vague and Sexy New Trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counselor’

I have been following The Counselor with a lot of anticipation since it was announced that Pulitzer prize winning author Cormac Mccarthy had penned the screenplay. When Ridley Scott was announced as director I was even more excited. The second trailer for the upcoming thriller is out now and boy, does it look every bit as promising as I hoped:

The trailer is just about as vague as the synopsis, which has me both intrigued and overjoyed: Per IMDb, The Counselor stars Michael Fassbender as “a lawyer [who] finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.” We don’t need to know more – too many trailers spoil the fun by showing the best action sequence or the funniest joke in the previews. Here we get just enough of a tease to pull us in, though the names attached are sufficient enough for me. This should be good.

The film marks the second time in 2013 that Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender will appear on screen together. You can check out the other with this 12 Years a Slave trailer.
