New trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counselor gets bad


A new trailer has arrived for Ridley Scott's The Counselor, which was written by Cormac McCarthy, the author of Blood Meridian, The Border Trilogy, and The Road. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Javier Bardem. Fassbender plays a lawyer who gets involved in drug trafficking. Hilarity, cheetahs ensue.

McCarthy is one of America's most acclaimed writers, and to be honest, I kind of want to read his screenplay for The Counselor more than I want to see the movie. From what I've read, the screenplay reads like one of his novels. Here's some of the screenplay as excerpted in The New Yorker:

desert. the sun has just set. Bare purple mountains are dark against a darkening sky streaked with deep red. There is the high, thin scream of a motorcycle in the far distance, very slowly becoming louder. Then it streaks across the middle distance in a small part of a second, really just a blink of lights, and whines away.

The Counselor comes out in theater on October 25th.
