‘Killing Them Softly’ Trailer Features New Footage


More slow-mo violence, snarky wiseguys, and a belligerent James Gandolfini? Don’t mind if we do! A new trailer for Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly has appeared on Slash Film, and while it features more of the same, there are a few new bits and pieces from the puzzle. Brad Pitt plays Jackie Cogan who is a mob enforcer keeping tabs on a heist that went down during a poker game. The film is based on George V. Higgins’ book Cogan’s Trade, and the Assassination of Jesse James director seems to be doing a fine job so far of capturing the dark comedic tone of the story. We feel wicked for laughing at that car explosion scene. Head past the break to see what we mean. Watch Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy, and friends in theaters when the film arrives next weekend on November 30.
