‘Killing Them Softly’ Gets a Smoking Trailer

Killing Them Softly
The Weinstein Company

Though the picture may have been delayed to October 19, we’re still anxiously awaiting the arrival of Andrew Dominik‘s ‘Killing Them Softly.’ Now there’s a trailer, and we’re still anxious.

And it seems one of Brad Pitt‘s big moves in this film is to smoke a lot. He does a number of creative exhales throughout the trailer, but you know, it’s dramatic. Here’s the synopsis:

When their poker game is knocked off by petty thieves, the Mob calls in their best enforcer, Jackie Cogan, to make things right. Under the eye of a mysterious driver, Jackie must track down and punish those responsible for the heist. His assignment is complicated by those he comes up against along the way – an aging, drunken hit man, some bumbling local gangsters, and the ladies’ man who ran the ill-fated game.

The film stars Pitt alongside Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn and  Scoot McNairy, and that’s one of the most masculine casts we’ve seen in an action movie in a long time. The film got a mixed reaction out of Cannes (what doesn’t?), where the film has been blamed for being a bit heavy handed. If it works as an action movie or noir, we’ll be happy.
