James McAvoy will be coming to a theater near you quite soon, only this time he’ll be a little more mentally unstable than you’ve seen him before. As can be seen below in the exclusive new poster that Indiewire has just obtained for the upcoming film “Filth,” the image of McAvoy screaming in front of a bright red backdrop coupled with the cleverly blunt tagline indicates that McAvoy will play a very angst-ridden man with severe people problems.
“Filth,” directed by Jon S. Baird and co-starring Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots and Jim Broadbent, follows Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) as he navigates his way through a stream of idiots while trying to attain a promotion and win back his wife and daughter, if only he can control his bipolar disorder, his drug problem and his extreme intolerance towards everyone around him.
“Filth” will be released by Magnet Releasing May 30. It’s available to view on VOD April 24. View the poster below:
