Brad Pitt and director Andrew Dominik brought their latest film, “Killing Them Softly,” to the Cannes Film Festival in May, winning over almost every film critic in the audience. Above is our chance too to see what the fuss is all about.
The first official trailer for the mobster drama (with lots of political undertones) has been released, and you can find it embedded at the end of this post.
It shows two rookie (or just plain dumb) robbers hitting a card game and stealing from a big shot played by Ray Liotta. Richard Jenkins hires Pitt to track them down and get the money back.
Asked in Cannes about the film, Dominik said he wanted to present a “kind of a cynical take on things, a sort of godless, faithless universe.” He sure seems to have succeeded at that.
The film will be out on October 19 in US theaters.
