A stylish and exciting new trailer for Ridley Scott‘s The Counsellor has been released. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

The eagerly-anticipated thriller stars Michael Fassbender as a lawyer who gets involved in drug trafficking and winds up in too deep. “How bad is it?” his girlfriend played by Penelope Cruz asks as the trailer ratchets up the tension.

The Counsellor‘s stellar support cast also includes Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, John Leguizamo and Game Of Thrones‘s Natalie Dormer. The script was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy (The Road, No Country For Old Men). It’s McCarthy’s first film screenplay to make it into production.

Ridley Scott shot the film in London last summer and autumn, halting production briefly when his brother Tony Scott jumped to his death on August 19, 2012. The Counsellor will be dedicated to the memory of Tony Scott, and opens in US cinemas on October 25 before getting a UK release on November 15.
