Briefly: For those anticipating Andrew Dominik's reunion with his Assassination of Jesse James stars Brad Pitt, Sam Rockwell and Casey Affleck in the crime thriller Killing Them Softly, they will just have to wait a bit longer. Deadline has word that The Weinstein Company has pushed back the film from its initial October 19th release to a November 30th, as Harvey Weinstein says, "the critical response to the movie has been very favorable especially on the amazing performances and November 30th positions us better in the Awards season calendar.” At least it's not as bad the G.I. Joe: Retaliation delay to March 2013.

WTF? Why "Boo"? You DO realize they did anything like that they're probably thinking "Oscars", right? October is the month you put either horror movies or movies that are only slightly better than September movies for "likely losers". The sole exception to this this year would be "Cloud Atlas", which, with its October release, I'm betting they're probably thinking will have enough legs to keep itself around until at least Thanksgiving and probably longer.

Saw the first 60 minutes of the movie a few weeks ago (really bad) and as far as I know neither Sam Rockwell or Casey Affleck are in this movie. Scoot McNairy is really good in it though.
