Filth Poster: World Exclusive First Look

Filth Poster: World Exclusive First Look film still

See James McAvoy riding high in the latest poster for the forthcoming Irvine Welsh adaptation.

LWLies is pleased to reveal the brand new UK quad for Jon S Baird's wickedly funny take on Irvine Welsh's gritty 1998 crime novel of the same name. The film sees James McAvoy deliver a career-best performance as booze-sodden, chang-boshing agro cop Bruce Robinson, whose deviant exploits are brilliantly captured in the bold poster design.


Filth is released in Scotland on 27 September and the rest of the UK and Ireland on 4 October. For more info check out the official Filth Facebook and Twitter pages.

Official Synopsis: 

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?

Based on the book written by Irvine Welsh and directed by Jon S Baird, Filth is produced by Ken Marshall and Jon S Baird
