File this trailer under "We're not really sure what this is all about but goddamn this cast is FINE." Because, seriously, it is. Michael "Fassy" Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Hollywood hot couple, Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, headline director Ridley Scott's (Prometheus, Alien) latest nail-biter, THE COUNSELOR.
The official synopsis doesn't give too much away about the actual plot, other than that it "tells the story of a lawyer, played by Fassbender, who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking. Violence, mayhem and cheetahs follow soon thereafter."
The trailer is giving me very No Country For Old Men meets Traffic, which isn't ever a bad thing. Bardem has even got the crazy hair, which you know helps him act even more badass (unconfirmed rumor). Speaking of No Country For Old Men, Cormac McCarthy, the author of the original book, also penned this script. He also wrote All The Pretty Horses, the novel which inspired the 2000 film starring Penélope Cruz. So there may just be a winning formula here, despite us being kept in the dark about the plot.
The film also features Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Dean Norris and Goran Visnjic.
But enough about all that, just watch this sexy trailer and let me know your thoughts below.
THE COUNSELOR is in theaters October 25th.
