After watching this trailer you'll need a shower as you see James McAvoy as never before. Things get dirty - real dirty.
Currently you can see James McAvoy in Danny Boyle's Trance or on the still very much sold out London stage at Trafalgar Studios as William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Both of these performances seem to pale in comparison to his next role as Bruce Robertson in Jon S. Baird's Filth.
Based on the novel from acclaimed author Irvine Welsh the man behind Trainspotting, The Acid House and most recently Ecstasy. So you pretty much know what to expect from Filth. Wrong! Things get even dirtier as Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) climbs to the top (or falls to the bottom).
James McAvoy will be starring alongside some prime British talent in Filth including: Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Joanne Froggatt, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan and David Soul. Yes David Soul or as you know him Hutch from the original Starsky and Hutch TV series.
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?
