Javier Bardem & Michael Fassbender star in ‘The Counselor’

The Counselor is based on an original screenplay from No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy. A lawyer finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.

The trailer makes clear McCarthy’s influence, there’ll be violence, hit-men and hard edged characters who show no mercy. As big fans of McCarthy’s novels as well the big screen adaptations of his work we can’t wait for The Counselor to hit UK cinemas.
