Michael Fassbender is “The Counselor” in Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated upcoming film, and today a new clip and character poster have been unveiled. These are again from the UK distributors, so they’ve put the double L in “Counsellor”, which still looks odd to me. Fassbender the role of the (relatively speaking) good guy who tries to dip his toes into the drug trade to make a little extra money without getting in too deep but of course does anyway. Cormac McCarthy wrote the screenplay, skipping the writing a novel partRead More

Fassbender probably should have heeded the warnings from Pitt and Bardem, but then we wouldn’t have a movie, would we? Cormac McCarthy wrote the screenplay himself about a lawyer (Fassbender) who tries to dip hisRead More
We’ve had our eye on this one ever since it was announced, and for good reason. Cormac McCarthy wrote the script, Ridley Scott directed it, Michael Fassbender starred in it, need we say more? Now, the first teaser trailer for “The Counselor” has finally arrived, and it looks just as crazy and awesome as expected. Fassbender, normally adept at play bad-asses himself, is the good guy in over his head here, as a lawyer who tries to dip his toes into the Mexican drug trade without getting in too deep.Read More
