We are big fans of James McAvoy here are FemaleFirst, and he is back on the big screen this September in Filth.

The movie is a big screen adaptation of the Irvine Welsh novel of the same name, and will see McAvoy take on the role of Bruce Robertson, a corrupt policeman.

And we have the brand new trailer for the film for you to take a look at:

If you are looking for a movie that boasts the 'Best of British' this autumn, then look no further as an eye-wateringly fine cast has been assembled.

McAvoy is joined by Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, Jim Broadbent and Shirley Henderson; I told you it was good!!

Jon S. Baird has adapted Welsh's novel, and he is also back in the director's chair for the film.

This is just the second feature film of Baird's career, and the first since he made the breakthrough with Cass back in 2008.

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?

Irvine Welsh novels are no stranger to the big screen with the likes of Trainspotting and Ecstasy having already been adapted; Porno is also in the pipeline.

So if you are looking to get away from all of the big budget blockbusters and for a film that has a British flair to it, then Filth could well be the movie for you.

Filth is released 27th September.
