When Penelope Cruz asks you ‘Have you been bad?’ You. Say. Yes.
That’s really the only major insight I have about the new trailer from Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy‘s upcoming joint The Counselor. It looks seven to ten kinds of ridiculously badass and they should just take my dollars now.
Sure, it’s OK to be skeptical about the guy who made Kingdom of Heaven making a movie by the guy who wrote The Crossing. That’s fine. I can see that.
But, let’s look at it this way: the guy who made Gladiator and Alien has brought to life a story from the twisted mind of the guy who wrote No Country for Old Men. Sure, there are no aliens (wait, are there aliens?) super powers or comic book deep cuts, there’s just Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz going head to head (hopefully). And probably a warped villain of some kind who will chill the insides of our very souls.
That’s all we need from our movies, right?
