I quit watching this French trailer for Andrew Dominik‘s Killing Them Softly about half way through, after I saw a couple shots in a row that I realized I would have preferred to see first in the full feature.
Take that as an endorsement, of sorts. This might show you more than you want to see, but at the same time it is a good new trailer for Dominik’s film, with a respectable amount of new footage. If you just want to see more than you have of the film that features Brad Pitt as a mob enforcer hunting down two guys (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) who robbed a card game, then it’ll do the trick.

Here’s the trailer for Andrew Dominik‘s new film, Killing Them Softly. We’ve been waiting to see more footage from this one, especially after the tease provided by the one previously released clip. The trailer shows two dumbasses (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) robbing a mob card game run by Ray Liotta, and how Richard Jenkins calls in a quiet enforcer, played by Brad Pitt, to track them down.
This footage looks fantastic, and I think anyone who’s been hungry to see Dominik’s long-awaited return to directing will be even more ready for the film after watching. There’s not much more to say; check it out below. Read More »
With Cannes just around the corner we’re going to start seeing even more clips and trailer from some of our most anticipated movies of the year. One of the big ones is Killing Them Softly, the third feature film from Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) that was formerly titled Cogan’s Trade. We haven’t seen any footage at all from this one yet, so the clip below is a first look.
The film features Brad Pitt as a mob enforcer on the trail of a couple guys (Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn) who ripped off the wrong card game. None of those guys are in this first footage from the film, however. Rather, we see Sam Shepard and Slaine showing up at Ray Liotta‘s house, where they rough him up for some reason. The scene is pretty basic, but the way the camera moves past the action really marks this as Dominik’s work — he’s not a guy to engage a scene in the obvious manner. It’s a great little shot.

I know that a lot of our readers are very interested in seeing Cogan’s Trade, which is the new film from Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) starring Brad Pitt and a wonderful supporting cast. Trouble is, now it seems that you’ll never see Cogan’s Trade. To be more specific, you’ll get a chance to see Dominik’s new movie, but it will have a different title. Read More »
We just showed you some images from Cogan’s Trade, Andrew Dominik‘s long-awaited follow-up to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Now we’ve got a release date for the film, which will hit theaters on September 21. Given the movie’s pedigree, that suggests the film will premiere either at the Toronto or Venice Film Festival before landing in US theaters.
Cogan’s Trade features Brad Pitt as the title character, a mob enforcer who is on the trail of a couple junkies (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) who robbed a mob-backed card game. Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, and Sam Shepard are all in the cast as well. Read More »
When I made my list of most anticipated movies of 2012, one of the films I immediately realized I’d left out of consideration was Andrew Dominik‘s Cogan’s Trade, which stars Brad Pitt as a mob heavy on the trail of a couple junkies who ripped off the wrong poker game. So far we’ve seen only one still (above, seen in better resolution below), and no footage. But just on the strength of Dominik’s last film, the tremendous The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, this new movie stands as one we just have to see.
Now there are a few new stills from the movie that show off more of Pitt as well as looks at supporting players Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini and Richard Jenkins. Read More »
This isn’t just another shot of Brad Pitt, and it isn’t a shot of Brad Pitt in the Fight Club sequel that (thankfully) doesn’t exist. This is Brad Pitt in the Andrew Dominik film Cogan’s Trade. It’s only the director’s third feature, and his first two (Chopper and The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford) have quite a fervent following. Needless to say, we’re excited to see what he’s done with this film. We’ve seen spy snaps of Brad Pitt in character as a mob enforcer who goes after a team that rips off a high-stakes poker game, but this is the first ‘real’ look at him in the film. See a slightly larger version after the break. Read More »
If you didn’t see Monsters or In Search of a Midnight Kiss (or aren’t a dedicated fan of Bones) your first thought here might be ‘who the hell is Scoot McNairy?’ The male lead from Gareth Edwards’ low-budgets sleeper Monsters has got great people working on his side, because despite not having the most head-turning performance in that film he has become a hot commodity after years of playing sideline roles.
The first evidence of that status is grabbing a big role in Andrew Dominik‘s Cogan’s Trade. He also has a couple other possible big jobs brewing. And, good news for fans of the film Animal Kingdom: Ben Mendelsohn is also in Cogan’s Trade. Read More »
