Probably like many of you, I've been anxiously waiting the next film from Andrew Dominik (CHOPPER, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD).

All we've gotten so far from KILLING THEM SOFTLY is a still and a clip. Now we finally have the trailer, and it's a damn good one too. Dominik certainly knows his audience. The story adapted from George V. Higgins 1974 novel, Cogan's Trade is one filled with great lines, a good bit of violence, and if "Here Was a Man" by Johnny Cash is any indication, then we are in for some excellent music as well. I know you guys will really enjoy this so check it out below.

Adapted from George V. Higgins novel and set in New Orleans, Killing Them Softly follows professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game. The film also features Scoot McNairy (Monsters), Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom), Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), with James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella and Sam Shepard among others.

Looks awesome. Love all of Dominik's films. So proud he's Australasian!

Btw, If you're referring to the song in the trailer, it's not "Here Was A Man", it was "The Man Comes Around".

Coogans Trade

Still liked the original title better. Love Pitt and his version of a cynical hitman.

That's different than I was expecting

It's a lot more Coen brothers than I thought it would be. I was expecting more Michael Mann. I'm still happy but not as happy.
