While it might seem that TIFF has every major movie coming before the end of the year, there are a still a strong handful of films yet to be announced for any festivals, and though we expect Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" to get a splashy premiere somewhere, it currently remains a big get for someone. And with the movie hitting theaters in just over two months, there's certainly going to be plenty to see from the movie.

While it might seem that TIFF has every major movie coming before the end of the year, there are a still a strong handful of films yet to be announced for any festivals, and though we expect Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" to get a splashy premiere somewhere, it currently remains a big get for someone. And with the movie hitting theaters in just over two months, there's certainly going to be plenty to see from the movie.

A batch of new images have arrived for the Cormac McCarthy penned movie, and while mostly everyone looks appropriately grim—this is a movie about a lawyer sucked into the drug trade with harrowing consequences—Javier Bardem's dude looks like he's having a blast. All Brian Grazer hair and Guy Fieri shirts, he looks like he rolled in off another planet. Well, a planet that cherishes history, as he's got an old school U.S. flag on his wall, and we can only imagine it may not have come through the most legal of channels.

Anyway, check out Bardem and the rest of the cast—Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz—below. "The Counselor" opens the case on October 25th. [Allocine via The Film Stage]
