Has Ridley Scott been watching Michael Bay movies? We can't remember the last time the veteran director delivered something this aesthetically slick and glossy, and it's an interesting veneer to add to what sounds like a gritty as fuck crime pic. Strap in, because the first international teaser trailer for "The Counselor" is here.

It's in Russian, so you'll have to wait until the English version drops to hear any dialogue, but first impressions? Holy haircuts, Javier Bardem's in particular. And Cameron Diaz looks to be shaking any and all preconceived notions about what her talents are in what looks like a very atypical role. In case you forgot, this one is penned by none other than Cormac McCarthy, and features a ridiculously stacked cast including Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer and Goran Visnjic in the tale of a lawyer who slips into the drug trade and finds himself way over his head.

Polish the Oscars? "The Counselor" arrives on November 15th. [O Zhizni via IMDB]

    It could readily be assumed that the look of this film has been conceived in the way of an homage towards his late brother. The screenplay is incredibly bleak and unforgiving, with the same trance-weaving, incantatory storytelling power of McCarthy's novels. I just pray that Scott's filmmaking does it justice.

    This looks almost too good to be true. Can't wait!

    OMG Fassy looks hotter than ever, I will be first in line for this one. Didn't care if I could understand the Russian, pictures are worth a thousand words I understood ever bit of that trailer.

    Not sure if everybody knows this, but the first several pages of the screenplay are available to read at the New Yorker website. Some minor spoilers, but it's an incredible sequence.

    I have no idea what to make of this, but my butt will be in a theater seat for this uber-attractive cast. Also, thank you for that Fassbender screenshot. Stud.

    Reservation for one.

    Other than her roots showing like holy moly, it's hard to tell how this is an atypical role for Diaz. B/c she's climbing a car and wearing short dresses? Bad Teacher, been there done that.

  • cattt | June 25, 2013 11:28 AM

    Yeah, she has no dialogue and less than 10 seconds of screentime. It's safe to say that this is Bad Teacher all over again.

    Looks like a cross between Breaking Bad, Tarantino/Rodriguez, No Country for Old Men and a little bit of Oliver Stone's Savages... I'm interested.

  • cinematic_high | June 25, 2013 7:06 PM

    I am too....but I hope it doesn't turn out to be anything like Savages....unless either Cruz or Diaz will be just as unforgettable and bad ass as Salma Hayak

    Quit your griping folks and watch what's there. I cannot freakin' wait for this. McCarthy is my favourite living author and it looks like Ridley Scott may have done his work justice.

  • LB | June 25, 2013 10:07 AMReply

    So freaking annoying when they pull trailers off the web, really pisses me off, what's with that? Do they want to sell their stupid film or do they want to frustrate potential audiences?

    One of my favourite Bill Hicks gags goes along the lines of 'hands up who works in marketing' once the smug morons have their hands in the air he tells them to go kill themselves. That's what I think of marketing.

  • Asshole | June 25, 2013 12:04 PM

    Duh. it's an international trailer. The US version isn't ready yet. Of course they're gonna wanna pull it. They're gonna wanna put it out there on THEIR schedule. Do you not understand basic marketing?

  • LB | June 25, 2013 11:32 AM
