Trailer Debut: Killing Them Softly

The first trailer for Andrew Dominik‘s Killing Them Softly – formerly Cogan’s Trade – has arrived online, offering equal measures of humour and horrific violence.

The picture stars Brad Pitt as Jacki Cogan, a professional enforcer investigating the theft of a high-stakes poker games by a couple of low level thugs (Ben MendelsohnScoot McNairy). The cast also includes James GandolfiniRay LiottaRichard Jenkins, and Bella Heathcote.

There is a real Out of Sight vibe to the trailer here, but reviews out of Cannes (where the film made its world debut) claim it’s less a frothy crime comedy as it is a stunningly violent satire of modern day America.

Either way, the shot at 1:02 made us giggle.

Killing Them Softly arrives in Australian cinemas October 2012.
