Default The Counselor (Ridley Scott/Cormac McCarthy Full Trailer)

Here's the full trailer for the movie. Lots of great movies coming out late in the year. If it sticks to the script, this has a chance to be a great film.

I can't help it but I like everything McCarthy writes. And Pitt's performance in this is superb - it's a gripping movie.

Any guesses on what the hell this is about? Trailer was more than a little vague about the plot...

Guesses? Almost none. Isn't that awesome? A trailer than doesn't spoon feed me every ****ing plot point like I'm a drooling retard. Ye-****ing-hah!

I've read it, it's all very bleak with some painfully dark subject matter.

Lot of talent behind it though, could be a good film.

Cormac McCarthy is simply one of the greatest living American writers and IMO one of the great writers of the entire American Canon. Anything he does will have at least moments of brilliance.

It's like seeing a movie written by Hemmingway, come on, how can anyone with an interest in storytelling miss this one?

Can't wait.

I agree. It will be interesting, too, because it's his first original script not an adaptation of one of his novels. From a writing perspective, I wonder how many 'screenwriting rules' he ignored.

You know what's funny. The script he wrote isn't even in screenwriting form, it was jarring when I first read it. But the script is f*cking brilliant. And yes he broke every screenwriting rule in the book.

This film will stay with people long after you've seen it. Haunting. And to me one of the most realistic looks at the Mexican Drug Cartels in cinema.
