While it’s too much for The Weinstein Company to release Killing Them Softly in just a few weeks, there’s been no shortage of posters in the interim between its premieres at Cannes and here in the states. Someone should ask Andrew Dominik how he feels about that.
And, yet, this batch — a three-round Mondo stab at the Brad Pitt-starring crime thriller — came out pretty well. Two emphasize a certain minimalism that was on display in an earlier one-sheet; that’s nice and all, but I have to express a greater appreciation for the blood-splattered, Lady Liberty-degrading piece which should shock and sell in equal measure. If Killing Them Softly has this same roguish nature in its complete form, that delay will be all the more of a shame.
The film will open on November 30th. You can take a gander at all of the posters below (via TheHuffingtonPost):
Another Annapurna release, Zero Dark Thirty, has also landed an additional poster — one which is, almost by default, more revealing than its first. Nevertheless, our second one-sheet for Kathryn Bigelow‘s drama, it being about the hunt for bin Laden, is not keen on revealing too much, instead opting for a hint of the al-Qaeda leader’s pending demise by way of incoming helicopters. (We actually saw this, in-motion, in the first teaser.) The question stands: Will they catch the guy before he gets away?
Zero Dark Thirty will open on December 19th. The poster can be seen below (via Yahoo!):
