Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Third Season arrives on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download on Tuesday, and to whet your appetite we've got a first look at a behind-the-scenes clip!
The gangsters have arrived at a party strictly for business, and Giuseppe Colombano Rosetti (played by Bobby Cannavale), aka Gyp, and Nucky Thompson (played by Steve Buscemi) go toe-to-toe at "a real old-fashioned sit-down" in the kitchen. How do you improve on the original idea to create tension and a memorable moment? Executive producer and director Timothy Van Patten breaks down the anatomy of the scene.
The third season of HBO's Prohibition drama set in 1920s Atlantic City finds Nucky nearing his breaking point as he negotiates a broken marriage, bruised personal relationships and a threat to his monopoly on the alcohol business. Bonus features on Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Third Season include audio commentaries, a perspective on season three from exec. Producer martin Scorsese, an interactive compendium on Prohibition-era gangsters and multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Boardwalk Empire returns for its fourth season on Sunday, September 8.
