Adrien Brody always looks poised to duck into the shadows while sporting a trench coat, and in the new movie "Manhattan Night," he pretty much does just that. Brody plays a New York tabloid writer whose picture-perfect family life is upended when an alluring woman (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to investigate her husband's mysterious murder. So begins a seedy rabbit hole based on Colin Harrison's 1996 novel Manhattan Nocturne.
The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have an exclusive "Manhattan Night" clip, in which Brody's character first finds himself pulled into this widow's web. The movie -- also starring Jennifer Beals, Campbell Scott and Linda Lavin -- opens in theaters and premieres on-demand May 20.
