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 Counselor hits theatres October 25th, 2013.
