As the fall film festival schedule gets firmed up, one Cannes premiere that’s oddly missing is Andrew Dominik’s crime drama Killing Them Softly, a follow-up to the excellent The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. But with a release in just a few months, we’ll get to see this one soon and now we’ve got a new poster to remind us.

Check it out below via HuffPo and see the trailer here and our positive review from Cannes here.
Killing Them Softly arrives on October 19th.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
