Lionsgate UK has released a red band theatrical trailer and the poster for Filth. The film is written and directed by Jon S. Baird and stars James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, and Imogen Poots. Filth is based on the bestselling novel by Irvine Welsh. The film is scheduled to open in the U.K. this September. A U.S. release date has yet to be set.
In Filth, scheming Bruce Robertson (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 (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?
