‘The Counselor’ teaser with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender hits the web ... in Russian

By Daniel S Levine,

Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and director Ridley Scott fans are finally getting a first look at The Counselor, Scott’s highly anticipated collaboration with novelist Cormac McCarthy. Unfortunately, the 50-second teaser is in Russian.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the international teaser features all the credits, text and dialogue translated into Russian. While THR still has a viewable link to the video, a YouTube version was posted at Entertainment Weekly and has since been taken down by Fox 2000.

The film features an incredible cast, starting with Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt. Husband-and-wife acting duo Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz are also in the film. Cruz is matched with Fassbender and Diaz is matched with Bardem in the film.

The plot has Fassbender as a lawyer, who gets involved in the drug trade with Bardem. Pitt has a part as a thug who joins them. This is the first screenplay for McCarthy, who is best known as the author of No Country For Old Men and The Road.

Fox 2000 is releasing The Counselor on Oct. 25, just in time for awards season. It is Scott’s first film since 2012’s Prometheus.

UPDATE: The English version has just been posted:
