Okay, we’ll admit it. At first, when he showed up in director Timur Bekmembetov’s Wanted as the young assassin in training, we didn’t care all that much for James McAvoy. But over the years, he’s really grown on us.
In fact, his take on a young profesor Xavier in X-Men: Fist Class is one of our favorites. Now, McAvoy is in a new movie called Filth, based on the Irvine Welsh novel.
The movie features McAvoy as a bigoted and corrupt cop who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Sounds good. We expect nothing less from the guy who wrote the novel Trainspotting.
Also in the movie are Imogen Poots, Jamie Bell, Joanne Froggatt, Eddie Marsan and Jim Broadbent. Filth is set to hit the UK in Septmenber with a US release to follow.
Check out the trailer after the break.
