A brand new, decked-out special edition of Manhunter, the very first movie adapted from Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter stories, is about to hit store shelves, and EW has an exclusive look at one of the bonus features. 

In the clip, William Petersen, who played Will Graham before Edward Norton and Hugh Dancy, explains in a new interview what it was like shooting a scene with the first Lecter, Brian Cox, and how precise director Michael Mann’s vision for that scene was.
