A fantastically put-together trailer showcases writer/director Andrew Dominik’s dark, new film KILLING THEM SOFTLY.

Following what I think is his career-best performance in Bennett Miller’s Moneyball, Brad Pitt shows us a darker side with his portrayal of enforcer Jackie Cogan in the searing new thriller KILLING THEM SOFTLY.

He’s the dynamic centre of this crime drama which sees him reuniting with Andrew Dominik, the writer/director of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, in what looks like another smartly written, visual feast of a movie from this beautifully constructed trailer.

What’s more there’s Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, James Gandolfini, Scoot McNairy (who made a real impression in Monsters) and Ben Mendelsohn (likewise in Animal Kingdom) filling out the cast. And it’s all underscored by a terrific Johnny Cash song.

“There’s a man… going round… taking names. And he decides who to free and who to blame.”
