Shocker! Javier Bardem is up for another villain role! After recently portraying Bond baddie Silva in 'Skyfall,' another major franchise wants him play its bad guy -- 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5.' He must have the face for it or something.
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.
Michael Fassbender plays a lawyer who tempts fate when he takes part in a drug smuggling scam along with some shady characters.
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.
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.
Terrence Malick is known for taking very long breaks in between projects (there was a 20-year gap between 'Days of Heaven' and 'The Thin Red Line'). Though, after last year's 'The Tree of Life,' the director has evidently decided to churn them out with a vengeance, starting with 2013's 'To the Wonder,' for which we have the first trailer. Take a look after the break!
Can you even tell which one of these guys is 'Skyfall' villain Javier Bardem and which one is 'Magic City' star Jeffrey Dean Morgan? This particular celebrity look alike has been making the rounds practically since the internet was conceived, and yet it's one of the only ones that truly make us go, "Whoah!?"
Lots of 'Skyfall' goodies landing in at the moment. With under a month until the latest James Bond adventure lands in the UK, the marketing machine is really revving up: Yesterday saw the release of a new TV spot, a banner and the encouraging early IMAX screening news, and now today has gifted us with 11 new 'Skyfall' pics. Check them all out after the break!
