A new poster for Jon S. Baird’s FILTH has just been released.
The film is an adaptation of the 1998 novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, the acclaimed author of Trainspotting. FILTH stars James McAvoy (Wanted, Atonement), Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin, Billy Elliot) and Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Moulin Rouge) in a story about corrupt policeman.
The poster shows positive reviews of the film, particularly praising the lead performance from James McAvoy as Bruce Robertson. The poster released prior to this featured Robertson climbing a ladder made of cocaine lines.
The official synopsis for the movie is:
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
FILTH will be available in Scottish cinemas September 27th and UK cinemas October 4th
