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.
While the previous teaser poster was minimal, the latest does little to expand on that notion. We’ve got Brad Pitt‘s name, the title, then Brad Pitt and his shotgun…and that’s about it. Like Moneyball last year, this seems to be riding solely on his face, which is sad considering the fantastic ensemble of James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Sam Shepard, Richard Jenkins and Scoot McNairy. 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.
