Al Pacino & Anthony Hopkins in First Trailer for Thriller 'Misconduct'
"You made an enemy you don't want." Lionsgate Premiere has debuted a trailer for the suspense thriller Misconduct, starring Josh Duhamel as a young lawyer who gets caught in a sticky situation. This trailer sets up the story where early on he meets a couple of other people including Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins as other lawyers. He then meets one Malin Akerman, who seduces him, and that sets off a crazy chain of events. The cast also features Julia Stiles, Alice Eve, Chris Marquette and Byung-hun Lee. I can't say this looks good, but they did grab me with the mystery of what the heck is happening. But that's it.
Here's the first official trailer for Shintaro Shimosawa's Misconduct, found on YouTube:
When an ambitious young lawyer (Josh Duhamel) takes on a big case against a powerful and ruthless executive of a large pharmaceutical company, he soon finds himself involved in a case of blackmail and corruption. Misconduct, also under the title Beyond Deceit, is directed by American filmmaker Shintaro Shimosawa making his feature directing debut after producing TV. The screenplay is co-written by Simon Boyes and Adam Mason. The full cast includes Malin Akerman, Julia Stiles, Alice Eve, Glen Powell and Byung-hun Lee. Lionsgate Premiere will release in theaters + on VOD sometime in early 2016. Thoughts?

It looks like It could be a good movie, just has a bad trailer that revealed too much.

Probably a decent flick, just a shame Hopkins and Pacino won't be in it as much as I'd like.

Looks like another paint-by-numbers plot with two tired old actors in for the easy payday. Hearing Pacino do his character with that pseudo Southern drawl makes me tired of this film already.
