Pitt Poster Preview
One of the most striking things about the latest clip of Ridley Scott's The Counselor is how solid Michael Fassbender's American accent is, but considering we've heard the actor (whose father was German, but was raised in Ireland) do a perfect Queen's English, that should probably be no surprise.

PROM-005 - Ridley Scott directs Noomi Rapace on the set of PROMETHEUS.
Prometheus—it was one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2012, seeing as how it was a Ridley Scott-directed prequel to his sci-fi horror classic, Alien.  In the end, it became one of the more controversial films of the year in terms of its reception, as the film—for the most part—fell far short of expectations and ended on a jarring and ambiguous...

While Ridley Scott should certainly carry his share of the blame for Prometheus’ massive—and we mean massive—flaws (a basic slasher film plot featuring a too-large cast in which only two or three have any actual characterization who variously to make a series of bad decisions and get killed, do drugs and get killed, or have sex and get killed; a barely-defined alien species that...
