We won't be seeing James McAvoy on the big screen in 2012, but by this time next year, he'll have been the centerpiece of quite a few promising films. His slate includes: the thriller "Welcome To The Punch"; the duo of films "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" alongside Jessica Chastain; and Danny Boyle's art world tale "Trance." And if that's not enough, he'll be getting dirty with "Filth." And we now have our first peek at that movie.

We won't be seeing James McAvoy on the big screen in 2012, but by this time next year, he'll have been the centerpiece of quite a few promising films. His slate includes: the thriller "Welcome To The Punch"; the duo of films "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" alongside Jessica Chastain; and Danny Boyle's art world tale "Trance." And if that's not enough, he'll be getting dirty with "Filth." And we now have our first peek at that movie.

An adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel, the lurid and darkly funny story follows the adventures of Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a sex-obsessed, cocaine-addicted, bigoted Scottish police officer who is supposed to be investigating a murder but gets sidetracked by his own peculiarities, worries and hangups ranging from the pranks he pulls on his co-workers to his various sexual conquests. He's surrounded by a pretty great cast including Jim Broadbent and Eddie Marsan, along with Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, John Sessions and more. Jon S. Baird is at the helm, and it hopefully won't be long before we see even more.

Welsh had previously said a TIFF premiere was a possibility, though that clearly didn't happen. We'd reckon a festival bow in 2013 isn't far off. Check out the images below.
