Updated: After the international, Russian-language trailer for Ridley Scott's latest, starring Brad Pitt and almost too many other stars, debuted this morning we now have the English language version. That means we get to hear some of Cormac McCarthy's dialogue in the script for The Counselor, though for now it's mostly just some menacing lines from the likes of Pitt and Bardem.

Yes, basically everyone is in this movie about a lawyer, Fassbender, that gets mixed up in drug trafficking.
