New ‘Killing Them Softly’ Poster Showcases Brad Pitt, Shotguns
Since its generally warm reception at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, ‘Killing Them Softy‘ has emerged as one of this Fall’s most anticipated movies. Although we’ve already gotten an American one-sheet, French movie site Cinema Teaser has revealed the international poster. Check it out below!
This is the second time that director Andrew Dominik and star Brad Pitt have teamed up. Since their first film together was the absolutely sublime ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,’ there is absolutely no reason to not be excited for ‘Killing Them Softy,’ which once again puts Pitt in the shoes of a coldblooded killer but adds a century or so the setting. Color us excited.
But this poster? Not good. Usually the North American posters are full of badly photoshopped floating heads and international designs are more sparse and artistic, but it’s the other way around here. At least this poster has the good sense to include Richard Jenkins‘ floating head, though. After all, every movie poster can be improved with a little Jenkins. While we’re here, does anyone else feel like Ray Liotta was added in at the last second after someone in marketing suddenly realized “Holy crap! They forgot to put Ray Liotta on the poster!”?
‘Killing Them Softly’ opens on October 19th.
