Lionsgate Home Entertainment brings audiences the DVD and Blu-Ray of Misconduct. As the legal thriller hits its release date, check out this special features clip from the star-studded movie featuring powerhouse performances by Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, and Al Pacino.

According to Indiewire, the plot follows Ben (Duhamel), as a determined and enthusiastic corporate lawyer. Ben then finds himself caught in between a powerful and corrupt pharmaceutical executive (Hopkins), and his firm’s partner (Pacino). When the firm’s partner seems to have his own ulterior motives, the lawyer becomes trapped by the two towering figures. Ben must race against the clock to discover the truth to protect himself, his loved ones, and the people he was hired to legally defend.

In an interview with USA Today, first-time director Shintaro Shimosawa discusses working with the two most revered actors in the industry, “Working with two of this generation’s greatest actors was everything you could imagine – terrifying, humbling, mentoring but ultimately the most gratifying experience of my life.”

To prepare for their roles, the Any Given Sunday actor adopted a New Orleans accent and worked with FBI Profiler Jim Clemente. As research, Clemente explained to Pacino how his high-powered legal character is also a sociopath. The Silence of the Lambs actor knew a man 40 years ago who worked for the Israeli Secret Service to capture his corrupt billionaire.

Shimosawa adds, “Anthony always felt a scary feeling about him (even if) this man never spoke aggressively or threateningly. He knew this man was deadly. Anthony was chilling on camera, but between takes he couldn’t be a friendlier guy.”

Misconduct arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.
