AceShowbiz - The first red band trailer for Jon S. Baird's upcoming film "Filth" literally lives up to its name. The video previews %cJames McAvoy% as a morally corrupted cop named Bruce Robertson and highlights how wicked the British man can be through glimpses of life he normally spends.

In the crime drama, Robertson is described as a pervert, alcoholic, psycho, and rude cop. The clip later gives vivid details of each description without holding back. He is seen enjoying sexual masochism in a variety of positions, snorting cocaine, getting drunk in public, and punching a man in the face.

Based on Scottish writer Irvine Welsh's novel of the same title, "Filth" centers on Bruce Robertson, a detective sergeant serving in Edinburgh's "Lothian Constabulary". While being enlisted to solve a murder, Robertson tries to stop his colleagues from taking his much-coveted promotion in the force and win back his wife and daughter.

In addition to directing it, Baird serves as the screenwriter of the Lionsgate film, which includes %cImogen Poots%, %cJamie Bell%, %cJoanne Froggatt%, %cEddie Marsan% and %cJim Broadbent% in the cast ensemble. The film is slated to open in September in the U.K., while the U.S. release date has not been announced yet.
