Ridley Scott's recent work has not been warmly received. Even the box office success of Prometheus, his second-highest grossing film worldwide, was accompanied by much disappointment. The Counselor could be a return to form, powered by its strong cast and the first produced screenplay by acclaimed author Cormac McCarthy. Michael Fassbender plays an attorney who gets into trouble after entering the world of drug trafficking. The Counselor also stars Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem (seen above with the wacky hairdo), Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and John Leguizamo. U.S. audiences will be counseled on October 25, 2013.
