'Killing Them Softly' Poster Count is Up to a Million with Three More
Okay, maybe not a million posters, but the sheer volume of one sheets for a film that isn't a blockbuster like The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises is staggering. Perhaps the outcry after the first somewhat lame poster for Killing Them Softly put the marketing department into overdrive and now they have nowhere to put these posters but online. At least there's some cool artwork blending patriotic stars and stripes with the violence in the crime drama from director Andrew Dominik, reuniting with Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford star Brad Pitt along with Ray Liotta and many more. Posters 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 November 30th this fall. You in?
