The first Killing Them Softly poster is a great retro teaser

KILLING THEM SOFTLY, previously known as COGAN'S TRADE, starring Brad Pitt has a new teaser poster and it is pretty cool.

We are so inundated with shitty, shitty posters these days that it is a breath of fresh air to see a nice, simple poster that does not need to Photoshop the main star's head onto a stock image of a sexy body.

We have already seen some images and a clip from KILLING ME SOFTLY, but now that the film is competing for the Palm D'Or at Cannes we can expect to see more and more from the crime drama.

Plot: Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) is an enforcer, and when the mob's rules get broken, Cogan is called in to take care of business. This time a high-stakes card game has been held up by an unknown gang of thugs. Calculating, ruthless, businesslike, and with a shrewd sense of other people's weaknesses, Cogan plies his trade, moving among a variety of hoods, hangers-on, and big-timers, tracking those responsible, and returning "law and order" to the lawless Boston underworld.

I don't think that Brad Pitt has made a bad movie in the past decade. In fact, he seems to be getting better with age. Between this and next year's WORLD WAR Z, Pitt is firmly at the top of the list of my must see movies.

KILLING THEM SOFTLY open September 21, 2012.

I've been looking forward to this flick for a year. I'm a huge crime film aficionado, and I think the Pitt/ Dominik collaboration on Jesse James is one of the most underrated films of all time. I read the book this was based on and it should be incredible.

That said they are doing this film no favors. This title is fucking HORRIBLE. I don't who thought this up but they should be fired. Also, September is a dumping ground of a release date. Not a good time for financial success or award

Not a good time for financial success or award recognition. In addition, not even a trailer yet. I'm sure it will be good, but the studio is doing nothing to help it.

COGAN'S TRADE sounds sooo much better...

Everytime I read Killing Them Softly, I mistake it for that aweful Heather Graham film Killing Me Softly, thinking for a second its another erotic film, which is totally not okay for a badass gangster film!

I wasn't crazy about Troy. Bits of that movie were decent, but overall it was fairly bloated and he came off a bit pretentious in it.

But I love that poster in all its minimalist glory.

I wish studios would just keep the early/teaser posters as the official poster when the movie comes out. Too often they switch to generic stuff when the flick comes out.

Now I got the Fugees stuck in my head.
