Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem in new images and a poster for The Counselor
Even though the film hasn’t debuted yet, the cast, the director and the writer all point to THE COUNSELOR being a major player come awards season. That said, the film should be a box office success for the same reasons and so that’s why we’ve gotten so many trailers, stills, posters and TV spots. The latest batch of pics can be seen below, along with what will presumably be the final one-sheet. THE COUNSELOR stars: Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Natalie Dormer, Goran Visnjic, Dean Norris, John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez. The Ridley Scott directed film hits theaters on October 25th, 2013.
The official Amazon synopsis for Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’: On the eve of becoming a married man, the Counselor makes a risky entrée into the drug trade—and gambles that the consequences won’t catch up to him. Along the gritty terrain of the Texas–Mexico border, a respected and recently engaged lawyer throws his stakes into a cocaine trade worth millions. His hope is that it will be a one-time deal and that, afterward, he can settle into life with his beloved fiancée. But instead, the Counselor finds himself mired in a brutal and dangerous game—one that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he loves. Deft, shocking, and unforgettable, McCarthy is at his finest in this gripping tale about risk, consequence, and the treacherous balance between the two.
