Stars, Stripes, Brad Pitt & More on New 'Killing Them Softly' Poster
The most recent poster for the crime thriller Killing Them Softly gave the spotlight to Brad Pitt and his shotgun, but now an international poster gives the rest of the cast a chance to shine. I'm not really sure what's going on here aside from some floating heads, stars and stripes and an old car, but it actually looks half-decent. It's not anything special or artistic, but it gets the job done overseas for those who just want to see who's in the movie. Anyway, the official trailer speaks for itself anyway, as this reunion of talent from The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford looks like it's going to be great. Poster 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?
Nice poster, but....why all the stars'n'stripes?? This ain't no patriotic movie. Other than the nice little catch-phrase in the bottom to link with the stars'n'stripes, the movie and patriotic feel of the poster don't relate.... I didn't even get that feeling from the trailer either. Also, correct me if i'm wrong, but that catch phrase will pretty much apply to any damn country in the world, some way more than the U.S. I'm pretty sure you're on your own in the middle of an African prairie as well..... A cheap way to attract viewers IMO....

It's true though. In America you are on your own. You need to stop electing these rich cocksuckers who don't care about anyone other than their criminal Wall St buddies.

I wonder how the Coen's feel about their blood simple monologue being used...
