Brad Pitt & James Gandolfini in Dominik's 'Killing Them Softly' Trailer
"Very few guys know me…" The Weinstein Co. has unveiled the first badass trailer for Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, formerly known as Cogan's Trade, a crime flick starring Brad Pitt as "professional enforcer" Jackie Cogan. This premiered at Cannes and earned plenty of praise from critics; I recommend it purely because of Dominik. Scoot McNairy (Monsters) and Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) star as the two sleazy robbers, along with James Gandolfini as another hitman, plus Richard Jenkins in there, too. I've got a feeling many people are going to go crazy over this trailer, it's awesome. Must watch!
Here's the first official trailer for Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, debuted on HuffPo:
Killing Them Softly, based on George V. Higgins' crime novel Cogan's Trade, follows Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), an enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game perpetrated by two junkies played by Scoot McNairy (Monsters) and Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom). Andrew Dominik (Chopper, Assassination of Jesse James) both writes & directs the film which also features Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Richard Jenkins (Let Me In), Ray Liotta (GoodFellas) and more. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and The Weinstein Co. will be releasing it starting on October 19th this fall. You in?
