Check out this great first trailer for Andrew Dominik's (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James) awesome looking mob film, Killing Them Softly. The story follows a mob enforcer, played by Brad Pitt, trying to track down three dumbass thieves who ripped off a high stakes card game. The movie also stars Ray Liotta as the hustler running the poker game, Richard Jenkins plays a lawyer with inside information, James Gandolfini is a washed up alcoholic hit man, and Vincent Curatola plays a middle-aged prison release seeking revenge. Sam Rockwell also has a role in the film.
I've enjoyed the previous films that Dominik has made, and his latest creation looks pretty damn entertaining! I really enjoy the way he tells his stories. It looks like it has the making of a classic mob movie.
Here is the short synopsis:
Three dumb guys who think they’re smart rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse. Brad Pitt plays the enforcer hired to track them down and restore order.
Watch the trailer and let us know what one of your favorite mob movies is, and how you think this film will stack up to it! The movie will be released on September 21st.
