    New Poster & Photos From The Counselor Starring Fassbender, Cruz, Diaz & Bardem

    When it comes to "The Counselor," Ridley Scott's new movie that's based on "No Country for Old Men" author Cormac McCarthy's first original screenplay, there seems to be no middle ground: it's either going to be amazing or utterly unwatchable.

    Watch: 5-Minute Featurette With New Footage For Telluride Surprise & TIFF Anticipated '12 Years A Slave'
