Just in case you haven’t noticed, the James McAvoy we fell in love with in Atonement is long gone. He might have those same baby blues, but 2013 is the year that McAvoy takes a trip to the dark side… and grows a beard. The Scotsman might play an angry cop in Welcome to the Punch and an art auctioneer-turned-thief in Trance, but he has never been as bad as he gets in his next film, Filth.
As the recently released – and super-NSFW – worldwide trailer for the U.K. film portrays him, McAvoy’s character is a pervert, alcoholic, psycho, rude cop. The promo doesn’t hold back, showing McAvoy having sex in a variety of positions and snorting large amounts of cocaine – also the visual theme of the film’s poster. Now the question is, do you prefer the good McAvoy or the very, very bad McAvoy?
Check out the trailer (again, NSFW!) and poster below.
Filth does not yet have a U.S. release date.
