Michael Fassbender's Viral Extra for The Counselor

The Counselor

Michael Fassbender stars with Game of Throne's Natalie Dormer in this viral for the upcoming Ridley Scott production of The Counselor.

Penned by Cormack McCarthy of No Country For Old Men fame, this spot was directed by Johnny Hardstaff who's previous viral promotional work, David8 was commissioned by 20th Century Fox for the feature Prometheus.

In this brief vignette Fassbender finds himself buying lingerie for a yet unknown character, perhaps someone to whom he has a relationship with in the actual narrative.

Hardstaff adds his own twist at the end of the spot, alluding to what the viewer could possibly expect once the feature is released.

The Counselor opens in America on the 25th of October and in the UK on the 15th of November.
