The first trailer has landed for the film adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s Filth, and let’s say it doesn’t take any prisoners.

Most definitely not for the faint-hearted, the 80-second promo has star James McAvoy, swearing, vomiting, shagging, swearing, snorting coke, swearing, shagging some more – oh, and swearing.

McAvoy plays Bruce Robertson, a bigoted and corrupt policeman eager to bring down a host of his colleagues, only for his web of deceit to threaten his own sanity.

Filth also stars the likes of Jamie Bell and Eddie Marsan and hits cinemas later this year.
