First Trailer And Photos From 'The Counselor' Starring Michael Fassbender And Brad Pitt
Posted 9 hours ago by Kevin P. Sullivan in News, Photos, Trailers


When Ridley Scott snatched up Cormac McCarthy's first feature-length screenplay essentially the instant people knew it existed, we knew that "The Counselor" was a project worth playing attention to. That was all before it started attracting talent like Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz. This was definitely something that wasn't leaving our radar any time soon.

Now we have not only the trailer that dropped yesterday, but Entertainment Weekly just released two photos from "The Counselor" that do little else but prove that there are several good looking people in the movie. Still, this is one that we absolutely cannot wait to see.

Check out the trailer and two new photos from "The Counselor" after the jump!











"The Counselor" opens in theaters on October 25.

First Offical Images From 'The Counselor,' Plus Read An Excerpt Of Cormac McCarthy's Unique Script
 
 
Portended by a brief sampling of author Cormac McCarthy's screenplay earlier this month, the teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming crime flick, “The Counselor,” dropped yesterday, and it promises a glossy, tense cocktail of haircuts and backstabbing, with Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, and a slew of others all looking to carve out some financial gain. Now, a few new images from the picture have dropped to tantalize for its fall release.
 
If the teaser's early snatches scenes look familiar, as Fassbender plucks a newly-strung wire trap for an oncoming motorcycle, that may be because the sequence was detailed in McCarthy's screenplay excerpts for The New Yorker. Events grow increasingly more violent from there as the full situation is revealed, but the author's sparse prose mixed with Scott's vibrant imagery hint at a stunning collaboration. Here's a sample detailing an action sequence in the picture -- and duh, don't read it if you don't want to know more:
 
 
the septic-tank truck on a two-lane blacktop road in central Texas. A late-model sedan is following it, two men in the car. The passenger in the sedan plugs a flashing red roof light into the cigarette lighter in the dash and reaches out the window and places the light on the roof of the car. Then he takes a black box off the seat and holds it at the window and turns it on and it begins to emit a police-siren sound. The septic-tank truck slows and pulls over onto the verge and comes to a halt. The sedan pulls in some distance behind it and the two men get out, putting on white Stetson hats. They are dressed in boots and tan slacks and white shirts and wear automatic sidearms. The driver of the truck—the wire man—watches them in the rearview mirror. The boots of the co-driver of the truck are moving back along the passenger side of the truck. The driver starts the truck and pulls away. The two men in the road have almost reached the truck and they draw their pistols and run forward. The co-driver of the truck is now lying in the bar ditch, and when the truck clears his position the two men in the road are exposed directly in front of him and he opens fire on them with a pistol, dropping one of them dead in the road and wounding the other in the leg. The wounded man dives into the ditch on the other side of the road. The truck has come to a stop again, angled slightly toward the road, and the driver opens fire on the wounded man with a pistol from the truck window. The wounded man presses himself flat in the ditch and takes careful aim with his pistol and shoots the driver in the head. The driver’s pistol clatters into the road. The co-driver in the ditch sees the pistol fall. He studies the far side of the road and then backs down into the ditch and crouches and runs along the ditch toward the truck. The wounded man sees the man’s back moving along the ditch and he stands and fires three rounds after him. The last round hits the tank of the truck and brown sewage starts to spout from the hole. The co-driver reaches the truck and opens the door and clambers in over the body slumped on the floor and, crouching over the body, he reaches and pushes the clutch to the floor with his hand and drops the shifter into first gear and reaches and releases the emergency brake. He pushes down the accelerator with one hand and lets the clutch out with the other and the truck moves forward into the road. The wounded man climbs out of the ditch and hobbles back to the car and gets in and shuts the door. He lays the pistol on the seat and reaches under the seat and takes out an AR-15 machine pistol with a twenty-round clip and pushes off the safety and starts the car and pulls out down the road after the truck. The truck has wandered to the far side of the road and the car pulls up along the passenger side of the truck and the wounded man opens fire with the AR-15, emptying the clip into the door of the truck. Then he backs away and pulls to the verge and sits watching. The truck veers slowly off the road in front of him and rolls down into the bar ditch, where it tilts up onto two wheels and balances for a moment and then drops back onto all four wheels and sits there in silence. In the rearview mirror, the man in the car can see another car approaching, very small on the long stretch of blacktop road. He can see the pistol lying in the road and, beyond that, the dead body. The approaching car is shimmering in the heat waves off the road. The man’s trouser leg is dark with blood to his boot. He places his hand on his thigh and leans forward slightly in pain. He turns the AR-15 on the seat and ejects the empty clip and reaches under the seat and gets hold of a small canvas bag and puts it in his lap and unzips it and takes out a loaded clip and loads the AR-15 and pushes back the slide with the heel of his hand. The approaching car has slowed. Now it stops. It turns sideways in the road and backs up and swings around and heads back the way it came. The wounded man has opened the door and he steps out and levels the AR-15 and opens fire on the fleeing car. He empties the clip and then lowers the gun and stands watching. The car slows and drifts off the road and down into the bar ditch and comes to a stop. The man reaches into the car and gets another clip and reloads the AR-15 and turns and goes down the bank to the truck.
 
Of course, Scott had previously pursued working on McCarthy's “Blood Meridian,” a project that can't seem to reach fruition no matter the elements, but with the assembled talents of actors like Fassbender, Javier Bardem, and Penelope Cruz, the alternative result is a stellar one.
 
Check out these news images (via EW), before “The Counselor” hits theaters on October 25th.

Bardem! Fassbender! Pitt! The Counselor has the best cast of the year

You could be forgiven for experiencing a sense of déjà vu at seeing a peculiarly-coiffed Javier Bardem, wielding weaponry on the Texan border, especially when you know the script is by Cormac McCarthy. The teaser trailer for The Counselor, in which lawyer Michael Fassbender becomes embroiled in a $20m cocaine deal, assisted by Bardem and a sinister Brad Pitt, bears more than a few hallmarks of the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men. Throw in Ridley Scott as director, McCarthy sharing the intricately violent opening scenes with the New Yorker and a supporting cast that includes Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and Breaking Bad's Dean Norris, and we're already ticking off the days until its release

First Official Images From Ridley Scott’s The CounselorJune 26, 2013 Matt Joseph 0  2

 
After a fantastic teaser trailer dropped yesterday, the promotional campaign for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor has begun. So far, the film looks great and today, we have two new images to share with you.
 
Providing a glimpse of Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz, the new photos certainly tantalize us for what will surely be an awards contender. Besides having Scott behind the camera, and the aforementioned actors in front, The Counselor will also star Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt and Dean Norris. Plus, there’s the fact that acclaimed writer Cormac McCarthy penned the script.
 
If you can’t tell already, this one has all the makings of a modern day classic and we could not be more excited for it. The story follows Fassbender’s character, a “lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.” Expect a gripping and thrilling crime flick, one that will no doubt compete with some of McCarthy’s other works, like No Country For Old Men.
 
Stellar cast, top-notch writer, legendary director, mark your calendar now folks, The Counselor is one to keep your eye on and as always, we’ll provide more updates as they arise. For now though, you can check out an excerpt from McCarthy’s script, which was posted on The New Yorker.
 
The Counselor arrives on October 25th. As you patiently wait for it, check out the new photos below, courtesy of EW, and let us know what you think in the comments.
