The Weinstein Company has unveiled the trailer for their upcoming crime thriller "Killing Them Softly," which reunites Brad Pitt with his "Assassination of Jesse James" director Andrew Dominik. Since its debut at this year's Cannes Film Festival, the movie has received a ton of buzz, particularly for Pitt, who plays Jackie Cogan, a mob enforcer assigned to take out two thugs responsible for a robbery that took place in a mob-protected poker game. Could Pitt win his first-ever Oscar for this role? So far, the cards look pretty good. Look for "Softly" to hit theaters starting on October 19th.
Adapted from George V. Higgins' novel and set in New Orleans, the film stars Brad Pitt as Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.
