Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy join forces to bring the exciting thriller The Counselor. Michael Fassbender stars as the title character and is joined by a stellar cast that includes Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Rosie Perez, Natalie Dormer, Goran Višnjić and John Leguizamo. McCarthy, the author of No Country for Old Men, makes his screenwriting debut and and Scott interweaves the author’s characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer’s one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.

The Counselor is a talented lawyer who just got engaged to his girlfriend, but faces financial troubles and is in need for some quick cash. Known for doing the right thing for the wrong people, he puts his connections to the test and delves into a shady drug deal that could bring him millions. However when he finds himself in over his head, he learns that he is unequipped to handle the fallout -- especially the wrath of a ruthless drug cartel hellbent on exacting revenge. He realizes too late that having it all could mean losing everything -- especially the woman he loves.

The DVD and Blu-ray include “Viral Pieces.” Exclusive to Blu-ray is the extended cut of the film, extended cut feature commentary and a making-of featurette.
