Exclusive ‘The Counselor’ DVD Clip: Behind-the-Scenes With Star Brad Pitt
Depending on who you ask, ‘The Counselor‘ is either one of the best or worst movies of 2013. Ridley Scott‘s strange, pitch-dark crime thriller started all kinds of debates when it was in theaters, but it’s undoubtedly going to find a life as one of the most divisive films of all time on home video. It’s the kind of movie you’ll have to see just so you can have an opinion on it. We have an exclusive look at the new Blu-ray/DVD release, so check out the video above to get a taste of what to expect when you put this filthy, fascinating movie in your home media player.
In the clip above, director Ridley Scott talks candidly about reuniting with Brad Pitt, who made his name with a key supporting turn in ‘Thelma and Louise’ all the way back in 1991. Scott admits that he took too long to reunite with Pitt, lavishing all kinds of praise on the actor. As he talks, we get a glimpse behind the scenes, offering us a look at the always-fascinating (and often amazingly mundane) world of filmmaking.
In addition to the 117-minute theatrical cut of ‘The Counselor’ and some making-of featurettes, the disc will feature an extended 138-minute unrated cut, which probably means additional violent executions, a few more shots of Michael Fassbender looking terrified and even more surreal descriptions of Cameron Diaz doing dirty things to Javier Bardem’s automobile
