Michael Fassbender’s been ‘bad’ in new trailer, for ‘The Counselor’: must-see?

Several weeks ago, we got to see the Russian-language version of the trailer for The Counselor. It was enough to get me going, although when Michael Fassbender is involved, it really doesn’t take much for me. Just one look at those blue eyes and that ginger hair and I’m committed. But now the English-language version of the trailer has come out and OMG. Keep in mind – this is just a teaser. We can’t really see much of the plot beyond “Fassy is engaged to Penelope Cruz’s character, Javier Bardem has crazy hair, Brad Pitt is a sleazy money man and Cameron Diaz wants to bang Penelope Cruz.” And I’m down with ALL of it.

Ridley Scott deserves some kind of special recognition for making Cameron Diaz look that beautiful and sexy. I mean, she’s an attractive woman with a great figure all the time, but she’s been messing with her face the past few years, but you really can’t tell here. And the role Camy is playing… that’s the one Angelina Jolie was thinking about doing, right? But Angelina had other commitments, which is too bad because casting Angelina in that role would have been very, very interesting.

As for my love, The Fassbender, this is going to be one of those movies where I’m just going to fall even deeper in love/lust with him, I can tell. I’m going to need this after seeing him play a violent slave-owner in 12 Years a Slave. Do you want that trailer again? Of course you do. Because that has Brad Pitt too!! Because Brad and Fassy are TIGHT.

    YAY! Thank You, Kaiser!!!!!!!!

    I can’t watch the trailer. Boo :(

    I know I’m alone in this but I like Cammie and I’ve always thought she was really beautiful, although extremely unphotogenic.

    Man, that first picture of Fassy….I got tingles. So much hotness there. I love his hair short like that too.

  2. TeamBrandi says:

    If its fassdong then I’m all over it. Somebody needs to give brad Pitt a bath. I wanna drag him in a tub and juz scrub him without it being sexual. He reminds me of my 5 year old nephew who loves to play in mud and HATES the bath.

  3. Sixer says:

    I don’t think I could ever fall in love with Fassy. But the lust is largenormous.

  4. Nev says:

    definite MUST SEE!!!

    The ladies look amazing…much rather Cameron over Angelina…totally sexier…and Penelope is just stunning.

  5. Talie says:

    Cameron does the sociopath thing well… happy to see a repeat of Vanilla Sky.

  6. Shelley says:

    Does Penelope Cruz only get jobs because of Javier??? She just seems so one dimensional. I am convinced she acts as herself all the tine

  7. Elodie says:

    Gosh Ridley… this better be good to make up for that Clusterf#ck of Prometheus… don’t us down, we are still fans!

    • DawnOfDagon says:

      I actually enjoyed Prometheus, seriously don’t get the hatred. Could have done with a much better score, but in all in all, I have seen far worse.

      • Elodie says:

        It’s my personal opinion as a Ridley Scott fan borderline fanatic for 16 years, my eyes are still opened enough to admit that he hasn’t done a decent movie since American Gangster, and even in between/before that there were glorious messed up ones. So yeah to each their own taste, but to me Prometheus was a nonsense from top to toe. I would love to share my opinion but it would be an essay I will write so I shall stop here hehe.

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        DawnOfDagon: You’re not alone. Both my hubby and I enjoyed that movie for what it was as well. Of course it had dumb moments, and it wasn’t a perfect film, but I think people were expecting some amazing masterpiece, of course they weren’t going to get that.

        Also OT: but LOVE your name! :)

  8. Anguishedcorn says:

    So, I’m just going to make a little gif of Fassy saying, “I intend to love you until I die” and just loop it on my computer.

  9. Lucretia says:

    Thanks for both trailers again, will be a great October! I love Fassbender’s range and, especially in TYAS, his willingness to take risks in his choice of roles. I liked Prometheus a lot, mainly for David; but my favorite Ridley Scott movie was Thelma and Louise, and The Counselor seems to be set in the same visual territory as well as in Cormac McCarthy territory.

  10. Deb says:

    Ridley Scott + Fassy = WIN (except for Prometheus but hey, everyone’s allowed an occasional screw up)

  11. Miss M says:

    Diaz and Cruz? It gives me a bit of Vanilla Sky deja vu. I will watch the trailer once I get home. Can’t wait! :)

  12. Ginger says:

    Wow! That looks like one sexy movie! Can’t wait. Hubby and I ride his sport bike so I’m intrigued from the start. Fassy first thing in the morning…I’m loving it!!!

  13. K says:

    Diaz has surprisingly great range.

    I thought it was constant surfing accidents that messed with her face, though?

  14. Reece says:

    I thought that was Bono in the thumbnail.

    Relly, the first thing I saw looking at CD is all the touch ups.

  15. Kaboom says:

    Someone give Chiwetel his Oscar already.

  16. Lindy79 says:

    He looks great in the pale jacket photo! Good to see him back in the spotlight. Can’t wait for X Men 2 (or is it 5)
    I love him in interviews with McAvoy!

  17. krtmom64 says:

    I have a thing for Fassbender!!!Find him soooo sexy!

  18. ncboudicca says:

    I’m only clicked on this page to increase the comments count on a Fassbender post for TheOriginalKitten, but now I’m intrigued by the trailer. :-)

  19. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Can’t wait to see this!!

  20. Esmerelda says:

    I feel old: ridley scott, director of gladiator and Prometheus… formerly known as the director of Blade Runner and Alien.
    This looks interesting: good actors (cruz and diaz are not bad when they have a good script), good writer, good/great director… we’ll see.

    • Vesta says:

      “director of gladiator and Prometheus… formerly known as the director of Blade Runner and Alien” – I feel old too. On a second thought I just cringe. You don’t have to be a film freak to recognize those classics.

      IMO the film looks like a campy mixture of Vanilla Sky + Vicky Christina Barcelona goes hardcore. But yeah, we’ll see…

      The only interesting looking part here is Fassy. He oozes steely charisma.

  21. Bel says:

    Oh, Kaiser. More Fassy please!! We all know you have a new lover these days. But Fassieloonies need to be feeded with more Fassy.

  22. CL says:

    Every time I think another actor has caught my eye, all I have to do is see a photo of MF and I’m slapped back to reality. The man is beautiful!

  23. FassDaActor says:

    The hot is STRONG on this one.

    Luv you Fass, you talented tease.

  24. Lola says:

    I love me some Fassy and I can’t wait to see this film! He is hotter than hell and a fantastic actor. I’m counting the days until this comes out.
