New International ‘Killing Them Softly’ Poster Adds America and the Gang

Posted by , on August 31, 2012 at 7:52 am 

While the US got a plain, spare poster for Killing Them Softly, featuring simply Brad Pitt and his shotgun, the international version brings in more of the gang and actually celebrates the American nature of the film. And for good reason, as we said in our Cannes review, “Opening and ending with speeches about these United States and the sameness of our promised land, writer/director Andrew Dominik paints his America with blood and cash and well-worn leather. ”

This poster adds some Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins and James Gandolfini — only a portion of the stellar cast including Ben Mendelsohn, Sam Shepard and  Scoot McNairy. I’m actually digging this one more than the standard design, with the flag behind and partially in front of our characters and as hinted at in our take, this is much more of an ensemble piece, so I’m glad this shows that off. Check it out below via cinemateaser.

Killing Them Softly arrives on October 19th in the US.
