This spring, a red band trailer dropped for the James McAvoy-starring flick, and now a longer, unrated promo is here and it definitely is pushing itself right to the edges of decency. As it should. McAvoy leads the picture -- in a role unlike anything we've seen him in before -- as Bruce Robertson, a sex-obsessed, cocaine-addicted, bigoted Scottish police officer who is supposed to be investigating a murder but gets sidetracked by his own various vices. Sex, drugs, booze and more all feature prominently (again, as they should), but there is also a "Bronson"-esque vibe and energy here with some of the more surreal imagery from rising director Jon S. Baird.
Boasting an impressive cast to help tell the tale -- Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots -- along with a Clint Mansell score, this is one we'll be keeping an eye out for on the fall festival slate. Watch below.
