Late Night Trailers: Killing Them Softly

Formerly titled Cogan's Trade, Killing Them Softly is the latest bad ass contender sneaking in for the Oscar season buzz.  Director Andrew Dominik (who made the stellar Assassination of Jesse James) has rounded up an accolade-friendly cast for what appears to be a gritty, down and dirty crime tale revolving around enforcer Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) as he investigates a heist worked well within the mob circuit.  Pitt looks awesome here, and the film has a look somewhere between last year's Drive and Rampart; that sort of muted realism that tends to signal a serious performance worth watching.

  1. It does look a little bit like Drive! I really can't wait for this movie, Jesse James was outstanding.
