‘Killing Them Softly’ has a lot of characters but just one motivation: money. Everyone we see is after the almighty dollar. An low-level mobster hires two men to knock off an underground poker game; one of the thieves wants to use his cut to buy heroin he can sell for more cash. The mob wants the dough from the poker game back so they hire a hitman to find and kill the thieves. He’s after a payday, too -- and when he collects it, President Obama is on a television in the background, delivering his election night speech from 2008 when he proudly proclaimed that we are a nation of one people from a collection of United -- rather than red or blue -- States. The hitman, Jackie (Brad Pitt) isn’t buying it. “One people?” he scoffs. “A myth created by Thomas Jefferson,” who didn’t really believe all men were created equal; he was a slave owner who didn’t want to pay any more taxes to England. “America isn’t a country,” Jackie continues. “It’s a business.”

'Fight Club' had one of the best and most subversive marketing campaigns in modern movie history. There were classic teaser posters, the airplane safety card and hilarious PSAs among other examples. Director David Fincher, Brad Pitt, Fox and ad agency Weiden+Kennedy worked together to create a truly memorable campaign, but just because the 'Fight Club' marketing was memorable doesn't mean that we can't add a little bit to it.
