When you behave yourself as a child, Santa Claus brings you gift. But if you have been bad, Ridley Scott brings you his new masterpiece, The Counselor, which is due out on the 25th of October. The author of “No Country for Old Men”, Cormac McCarthy wrote the screenplay for The Counselor and this fact by itself alone suggests that the film will surely be worth special attention. The Counselor Trailer reveals only the key moments of the story line and does it pretty niggardly, so we can only guess, but the basis is extremely promising. In the memory of the recently deceased brother, Tony Scott, Ridley Scott seems to overcome himself.
So, bad boys and girls, gather up to hear a story about a young gifted lawyer, who, being familiar with the law shortcuts, exceeds his authority in the chase for something extra and gets caught up in some criminal schemes, related to the traffic of a fantastic amount of drugs. Of course, there are some menacing and dangerous villains, the power and bloodlust of which has no description, and terrible secrets, the disclosure of which threatens with some dire consequences. Obviously, The Counselor trailer has a story of a tender and bland, yet very unhappy love, the illusion of a happy life, which is not destined to ever come true, an odd and unfaithful friendship and of course, dashed hopes and dreams. The Counselor trailer would not have anything so tremendously amazing in it, if not for Ridley Scott and his impeccable status of a great director, for Cormac McCarthy and his reputation as a talented writer, and, evidently, for the actors who has been chosen for the leading roles. The hapless counselor, who has been mercilessly betrayed by his fate, is performed by the matchlessly handsome in his dispassionate manner Michael Fassbender, his naïve sweetheart is tremendous Penélope Cruz. Other characters are not yet completely identified because of the mysterious trailer, but the reputation of the actors speaks for itself. On the secondary roles, wicked Ridley Scott has chosen none other than Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz.
There is no doubt this is a talented director, screenwriter and cast. We can only look forward to the release of The Counselor on the screen, and then run to the theater, hoping to come out enthusiastic and amazed.
Ridley Scott brings yet another gift to the whole world of admirers. On the 25th of October, The Counselor will be released and the world of thriller is most likely to be changed once and for all.
