Brad Pitt and ‘Prometheus‘ director Ridley Scott have just released a trailer for the star-laden film ‘The Counselor‘.  Besides Mr. Pitt, the film features an All-Star ensemble cast including Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, John Leguizamo, and Goran Visnjic.  If that’s not enough for you, the movie is based on an original script from best-selling author Cormac McCarthy, whose last film ‘No Country for Old Men‘ was up for and won multiple Oscars.

It seems that the movie deals with a lawyer, played by Fassbender, who becomes involved with the Mexican drug cartels.  In the trailer Pitt offers the classic line that “You may think there are things these people are simply incapable of – there are not.”

The film is set for an October 25th U.K. premiere, right around the beginning of Oscar season.

Here’s the first trailer as promised:

Personally, the Movie Don can’t wait for this one as McCarthy is an exemplary writer and Ridley Scott’s resume, ‘Blade Runner‘, ‘Alien‘, ‘Gladiator‘, ‘Thelma & Louise‘, etc., really needs no introduction.

Cannes Film Festival has come and gone and the Coen Brother’s latest film, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is emerging as the big winner from this years festival as the Grand Prix (runner up) choice from the Steven Spielberg led jury.  Oscar buzz is already building about this 1960’s fictional look at a folk singer struggling to make it in ’60’s New York.  Although the movie won’t be released until fall, prime Oscar season, critics have been praising the movie and even mentioning a possible Best Actor nod for Oscar Isaac in the titular role.  Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, and Carey Mulligan round out the latest from the helmers of ‘No Country for Old Men’ and ‘True Grit’ in a movie sure to be heavy on Dylan in the soundtrack.

Here’s a look at the compelling trailer:

 

If you pay attention you’ll notice a period appropriate Justin Timberlake in the film, which dovetails nicely with his recent retro album release and music.

The Palme d’Or went to ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’, although expectations for audience reception of this film should be tempered by the film’s three hour running time and controversial, highly eroticized lesbian romance subject matter.

Another movie making waves at Cannes was Nicolas Winding Refn‘s followup to ‘Drive’ called ‘Only God Forgives’ once again starring Ryan Gosling‘Only God Forgives’ is even more violent than Refn’s previous film, but let’s hope the auteur continues to push the cinematic envelope with his realistic/sickening displays of violence in his films.

Here’s a trailer for ‘Only God Forgives’ to wet your appetities:

 

Kristen Scott Thomas is receiving rave reviews for her turn as Gosling’s unabashedly Machievellian mother.

The flick is set for a July 19th release date in the U.S.
