Behold The Return Of Michael Fassbender In The Counselor Teaser

Even though it’s only June, the first scents of Oscar season are already drifting in on the summer air. It’s still many months off, so stop putting on your mink coat and your popcorn gloves, and set down your theatre glasses too, won’t you?! Goodness, sit back down.
