The film debuted at Cannes to terrific reviews, and has already been released here in the UK – you can read our review here – and will be coming to the US at the end of November, putting it in prime position for a campaign in the midst of the awards season. With its release on the horizon, a new international trailer has surfaced, via The Film Stage, giving a brilliant look at the film.
“When their poker game is knocked off by petty thieves, the Mob calls in their best enforcer, Jackie Cogan, to make things right. Under the eye of a mysterious driver, Jackie must track down and punish those responsible for the heist. His assignment is complicated by those he comes up against along the way – an aging, drunken hit man, some bumbling local gangsters, and the ladies’ man who ran the ill-fated game.”
Starring alongside Pitt is a great supporting cast, headed up by the rising star Scoot McNairy, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard, and Slaine.
Previously titled Cogan’s Trade, Dominik is directing from his own script, adapting the original novel by George V. Higgins.
