Michael Fassbender Faces Death Over Drug Trafficking Fallout In ‘The Counsellor’ First Trailer (WATCH)

Michael Fassbender takes centre stage in the first teaser trailer for Sir Ridley Scott’s new thriller The Counsellor.

The movie stars Fassbender as a lawyer whose life is put in danger when he gets himself tangled up in the world of drug trafficking.

The new promo clip also teases appearances in the supporting cast by Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz.

The Counsellor is out in the US on October 25 and in the UK on November 15.

Fassbender, whose career went to a new level with last year’s Shame, was reported late last month to be in a new relationship with Louise Hazel.

A source close to the couple had told Us Weekly: “They are dating.

“Michael has been talking to her while also filming X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal. He comes back to London to see her.”

We reckon bagging Fassbender should more than compensate for not winning a medal at London 2012 for Louise!
