“Why do we need a lawyer from Chicago?” asks Denzel Washington in the newly released clip (debuting exclusively on Moviefone and our sister site Huffington Post Entertainment) from the upcoming aerial drama, “Flight.”

From Robert Zemeckis, the film follows an airline pilot (Washington) who is hailed as a hero after landing a plane safely after a mid-air emergency. But an investigation brings to light some disturbing truths about what actually happened aboard that fated flight.

So why does Denzel need a big-shot lawyer? Take a look at the clip above to find out.

“Flight” received rave reviews after its premiere at the New York Film Festival earlier this month, with near unanimous praise showered on Denzel, who could end up with a Best Actor nod at this year’s Oscars.

“Flight,” which stars John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Melissa Leo, hits theaters on November 2. Make sure to head back to Moviefone on October 29 for our latest session of Unscripted, featuring “Flight” stars Denzel Washington and John Goodman.
