New teaser trailer for The Counselor

What do you get if you put Ridley Scott behind a camera, with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassebender in front of it?

If the new trailer for The Counselor (we know it's missing an L) is anything to go by, you get some high octane performances from the latter pairing, and reels of tension - though that might just be the biker-ending cheese wire scene that we're still trying to forget about.

While the trailer sets the tone brilliantly, it's scant on plot details. A lawyer (Fassebender), regrets getting himself involved in the shady world of drug trafficking. Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Natalie Dormer and a cheater are also along for the ride.

That's all you're getting until the UK release on 15 November (or until the next trailer lands).
