Michael Fassbender Is in Trouble as ‘The Counselor’

Cory Lopez / August 20, 2013

From the looks of the international trailer, The Counselor promises plenty of sex, violence and drugs.

Ridley Scott’s forthcoming noir, written by No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy, centers on a corrupted lawyer (Michael Fassbender) who gets in over his head after a big-dollar drug deal goes awry.

The all-star cast also features Penelope Cruz as the counselor’s innocent fiancée, and a spiky-haired Javier Bardem, a Stetson-wearing Brad Pitt and a leopard-print tattooed Cameron Diaz as play underworld heavy-hitters.

The Counselor is set to hit theaters stateside on Oct. 25.

Check out the international trailer, above.
