Another Irvine Welsh
adaptation has dropped yet another red band trailer and it’s even stranger than the last one
Penned and directed by Jon S. Baird
starring James McAvoy, Imogen Poots, Jamie Bell, Joanne Froggatt, Emun Elliott, Jim Broadbent, Martin Compston, Kate Dickie
and Eddie Marsan
McAvoy stars as Bruce Robertson, a Scottish police officer who spends more time in pursuing his own various vices than upholding the law. He spends his time popping pills, takes womanizing to a whole new level, and is generally just insane, yet controlled.
opens overseas on September 27th, 2013, but there’s still no U.S. distributor or release date.
Check out the entertaining new trailer that looks like a lot of bloody good fun.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
