Watch: Michael Fassbender Seeks Counsel From Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, and Penelope Cruz in First Full Trailer for Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor'

After releasing two new clips yesterday, "The Counselor" is back for more today with its first full trailer. The nearly two-minute preview introduces a few new scenes from the awards contender, including a glimpse at some competitive polo play and a different look at Cameron Diaz's cheetah, but it mainly covers the same ground as the teasers before it. 

Not that there's anything wrong with that. Ridley Scott's star-studded thriller looks like an ideal blend of the director's grittier work ("American Gangster," "Black Hawk Down") and the Cormac McCarthy's last award-winning adaptation, "No Country For Old Men." We're obviously dying to see more, but going into a movie blind is usually beneficial -- especially when expectations will be higher than they already are for "The Counselor."

Take a look at the new trailer below, and see if you need more of "The Counselor" before its October 25 release.

    I don't know about this: i hope it is going to be clever at least, but, from this trailer, i just get a sense of derivative toward those opulent thrillers so famous (and, already, all quite insanely kitsch from the late 1980's -late 1990's) i honestly had hoped we had gotten a rid of those (and, don't get me wrong, i love thrillers with a dangerous or amoral, erotic under tone, like Hitchcock's "Rebecca", "Notorious", "Vertigo", or Roeg's masterful "Don't Look Now", which still stands out as the most innovative, even almost 40 years later, but, Polanski's stuff, too, and, Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut", i even enjoyed "Basic Instinct" which launched Sharon Stone in 1992, and, was actually really well done, Fincher's first and best "Seven", down to something truly soapy, but, guilty treat alike, such as the Basinger-Thurman-Gere's triangle of depraved habits and utterly unethical psycho analysis which was called "Final Analysis"), but that being said, i love the cast and especially Fassbender! So, i do have hope!

    Why are all the men wearing so much make-up? I understand it is a movie, but still.
