What do you get when you cross James McAvoy, hallucinogenic drugs and a rampant sex addiction wrapped up in another Irvine Welsh novel? The answer is something that looks like one helluva good time.

Filth is McAvoy’s second time starring in a Welsh adaptation (Trainspotting) has him playing corrupt Scottish copper Bruce Robertson, a man who really used to be a good person, if you can believe it. As his status as a detective climbs, Robertson dives deeper and deeper into a seedy world of sexual favors, violence and cocaine. Mountains of cocaine.

But like any good officer of the law, Robertson is still vying for that long sought-after promotion, despite all the drugs and sex in the way. Rounding out the cast are Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent and Eddie Marsan.

Filth, along with Trainspotting, The Acid House and Ecstasy, will be the fourth Irvine Welsh novel to make it to the big screen.

Check out the trailer here:

Filth will be released in Scotland September 27th, and the rest of the UK October 27th. There is no US release date at this time.
