Brad Pitt & Shotgun on New Poster for Dominik's 'Killing Them Softly'
This is how he kills them. The Weinstein Co. has just debuted the theatrical poster on Huffington Post for Andrew Dominik's crime drama Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt with a shotgun, among many other talented actors. In similar fashion to the recent Lincoln poster, this one highlights the lead actor, cut out from his surroundings, on a solid color background with the text positioned over it. Killing Them Softly recently premiered its trailer, which looked damn good, and really captured the darker tone of the film. I saw this film in Cannes, and it's definitely worth seeing, whether you like this poster or not. In full below!
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?

The movie looks great. You could've assigned designing a poster for this movie to a 10th grade graphic design class and come up with handfuls of better concepts. Starting to think Mondo needs to design every movie poster that comes out, ever.

THIS is a crap poster. Feels like the only reason Pitt is on it is because it's in his contract. Weak. Still excited for this movie though...
