Everyone is going to hate 'The Counselor.'
Ridley Scott's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's original screenplay starring Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, et. al. is one frustrating movie. At its very best – if you buckle down and really work to piece together the nearly inscrutable plot – you aren't going to come away with much. “Crime doesn't pay,” is the gist of it.
Production on Brad Pitt's next project, the WWII pic 'Fury,' commenced with production not too long ago, with the actor giving his hair a new sartorial look for the effort. Director David Ayer ('End of Watch') has been keeping the fans updated by releasing various set photos, but now, aside from a slew of paparazzi shots, we have our first look at the film.
If you had brought up the idea of a 'World War Z 2' to Brad Pitt and Paramount Pictures just about six months ago, they may have laughed you out of the room. The zombie movie had a famously difficult production with costly reshoots leaving many Hollywood insiders thinking 'World War Z' was going to be a massive failure. But then the film hit theaters, it turned out to be a pretty good movie and the movie has made over $200 million to date. So, who's laughing now? Certainly not Brad Pitt who says they have "so many ideas" when it comes to prepping the inevitable 'World War Z 2.'
A few weeks ago we heard the surprising possibility that Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis-Brad Pitt sci-fi classic '12 Monkeys' had been eyed for a potential TV series adaptation on Syfy, and it seems that reality has officially come to pass. Syfy has officially greenlit a pilot for the '12 Monkeys' TV series, said to follow the 'Battlestar Galactica' model of development, but will the series follow the same plot as the movie?
You know it because it's happened to you.
You settle into your seat at you local multiplex, excited to see the latest movie starring your favorite actor. The lights dim, the projector kicks into action, the movie starts and then
Michael Fassbender plays a lawyer who tempts fate when he takes part in a drug smuggling scam along with some shady characters.
The full-length trailer for Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' has arrived online, and there's only one thing this movie wants to know: Have you been bad? Well, it seems Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender certainly have, judging by the action in the trailer. There's not much explicitly described about the plot, which is kind of how we like our trailers.
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.
Despite all of the toxic buzz that surrounded it a few months ago, 'World War Z' has been a critical and commercial success, grossing $470 million worldwide. Rather than just breathe a sigh of relief and plan the inevitable sequel, Paramount is looking to milk their zombie epic for all that it's worth. Are you ready to see Brad Pitt battle the undead in IMAX 3D, because that's the plan.
