It's been over twenty years since Brad Pitt last worked with Ridley Scott, which is surprising as it was Pitt's work in 1991's 'Thelma and Louise' that launched him into superstardom. The duo have reunited for 'The Counselor,' and in anticipation of a new trailer hitting tomorrow, three clips from the movie have been released.
Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' is going with an impressionistic ad campaign so far. Highlighting its all-star cast -- which includes Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Brad Pitt -- it suggests a neo-noir as the protagonist (Fassbender) gets involved with criminal activity that could eventually destroy his body or his soul, and possibly both.
In pre-Civil War America, a free black man from upstate New York is abducted and sold into slavery.
In the wake of 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' 20th Century Fox planned a series of 'X-Men Origins' movies, with each film focusing on the early years of a particular mutant. As you know, a Wolverine one got made and the much talked about Magneto movie did not. However, a statement from a certain influential comic book writer has the internet buzzing again -- what became of that Magneto movie? Will it ever actually get made?
You don't have to watch the first 'The Counselor' trailer for it to have your attention. All you have to know is that it is directed by Ridley Scott, written by the legendary Cormac McCarthy and stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. If you know all of this and aren't already planning to go out of your way to see it, you have no business being a movie fan.
Director Bryan Singer has been hard at work filming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' for some time now, and his busy schedule certainly hasn't stopped his frequent Twitter updates straight from the set. His latest photo reveal of the 2014 superhero epic gives us a look at franchise villain/antihero/"dark knight" Magneto, once again played by the dashing Michael Fassbender, and it looks like he's up to no good.
Although you can usually write off most video game adaptations, 'Assassin's Creed' feels like it could finally break the mold. After all, an acclaimed actor like Michael Fassbender doesn't sign onto any old piece of junk -- there must be something special about this project.
And it looks like it's officially scheduled to arrive in the summer of 2015.
