Michael Fassbender Gets Fidgety In New 2 Clips From 'The Counselor'; Plus 5 New Character Posters

One of the pleasures to be had from Ridley Scott's upcoming thriller "The Counselor," we're assuming, is watching Michael Fassbender squirm. The film, based on the first original screenplay from "No Country for Old Men" author Cormac McCarthy, concerns a lawyer (Fassbender) who gets involved in drug trafficking and, we're assuming, has to try and extract himself without winding up very, very dead. In a new clip, we watch Fassbender talking with Javier Bardem, with a fake tan and hypnotically spiky plume of hair, about just how bad his situation has gotten. Watch it below.

It looks like Bardem is some kind of underworld character, and it seems they're at Bardem's house. The two talk about what they're going to do (for money, for an escape), with Bardem warning Fassbender that he wouldn't be in this mess if he had just come to him earlier and accepted his initial proposition. It's our feeling Bardem is some kind of mid-level gangster and Fassbender has gotten in bad with dudes who are much, much scarier.

Other cast members who didn't make it into this clip but are still in the movie include Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, John Leguizamo, Dean Norris, and Rosie Perez

"The Counselor" opens on October 25th and will undoubtedly feature a lot more of Fassbender squirming. Posters via Little White Lies.

    Interesting script. I'm wondering how much of it will make it into the final version.

    Both of them are wearing waaaayy too much make up. That is part of the problem with this movie is that everyone looks a bit too old to be in the film. Of course, there are kind of not enough young actors who could pull off this type of movie either so I guess this is what we are stuck with. I am debating whether or not I want to see this film as I don't love Cormac "Twisted Old Bastard" McCarthy. I hated 'No Country For Old Men'. It made no sense whatsoever. It winning Best Picture was one of the great crimes of AMPAS.

    SO excited. Please, be edgy and gruesome. I want something The Texas Chain Saw Massacre-level nightmarish.
