The film debuted at Cannes to terrific early reviews, and was released here in the UK back in September – you can read our review here – and is soon set for release in the US, with The Weinstein Company priming it for an awards campaign.
We recently caught a new international trailer for the film last month, and now TWC have released a great new TV spot ahead of its release Stateside in just over two weeks’ time.
“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 one of the best casts of the year, headed up by 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, having adapted the original novel, Cogan’s Trade, by George V. Higgins.
Killing Them Softly will be released in the US on 30th November, and due out on DVD/Blu-ray in the UK next February. For now, here’s the great new TV spot to whet your appetites. Enjoy.
