Here's something you probably wouldn't expect given the reputation of the holiday season for creating giant movie hits. No film released the weekend after Thanksgiving has opened to more than $10 million since 2005, when that dubious honor went to Aeon Flux. This weekend won't change the pattern

If you are like me, you woke Friday morning (and again on Saturday) in a caloric fog, with gravy stains splattered across your cardigan, little clumps of hardened mashed potato stuck to your shoes and cranberry sauce in places I dare not mention. I had a Thanksgiving food-induced blackout, which is all to say: man I love that holiday

Brad Pitt Seeks Payback In Second Killing Them Softly Trailer Brad Pitt Seeks Payback In Second Killing Them Softly Trailer
You are forgiven for possibly not being aware that Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly opens on Nov. 30. The hardboiled crime noir hasn’t received 1/10th of the promotion of a Skyfall. Perhaps it’s because The Weinstein Company doesn’t believe Dominik’s reunion with Brad Pitt is awards worthy?

Dominik seems to see that side of Pitt that directors like David Fincher and Guy Ritchie love to exploit, but that the tabloids avoid. For such a handsome dude, he’s grizzled and tough and domineering in ways you wouldn’t expect. And he’s rarely afraid to get down in the mud and play for the benefit of a well-oiled crime story.

When it comes to cool modern movie posters, few if any, have a leg up on Mondo. The Austin, Texas-based art company regularly has its artists commissioned to create pieces for upcoming films, and their designs are just about always better than anything the studio comes up with. This time The Weinstein Company has hired the folks at Mondo to create three new one-sheets for the gangster movie Killing Them Softly...

While the last few months of the year are what Hollywood designates as "Oscar Season," there is one weekend that is always a total bummer: the first weekend of December. For whatever reason the movie industry treats this one particular three day stretch like the plague.

Unfortunately, with the good news of The Master being moved up comes bad news that Andrew Dominik's next film, Killing Them Softly, will be pushed back. While the crime thriller was originally going to make it to theaters on September 21st, the trade says that it has been moved back to October 19th. The film will be competing against both Alex Cross, starring Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox, and Paranormal Activity 4.

First Poster For Killing Them Softly Goes Minimalist First Poster For Killing Them Softly Goes Minimalist
While they are a bit overdone, there is something inherently fun about minimalist posters. It's an interesting idea to try and take even the most complex pieces of work and simplify them into basic images that tell you everything that you need to know about them or capture the one element that everyone on the planet will recognize. It's a bit strange to reverse engineer that process, by promoting a movie that nobody has seen using a minimalist design...

Man, do I love the way that this was shot. There are many directors who would have just cut and put the camera inside the trailer to watch the struggle, but by keeping the audience outside we are shocked every time a window breaks or a door comes crashing open. I'm also now very curious to know what exactly Ray Liotta's character did to Sam Shepherd's. My bet is that it wasn't something good.

Brad Pitt's Cogan's Trade Changes Its Name Brad Pitt's Cogan's Trade Changes Its Name
Do you prefer the new title? I’m on the fence. At the very least, Cogan’s Trade sounded more original, more distinctive. Killing Them Softly calls to mind a Lifetime movie of the week, perhaps starring Dana Delaney or Valerie Bertinelli. Then again, we didn’t quite know what Cogan was trading in the first title. At the very least, both titles are far shorter than the full name of Pitt and Dominik’s last effort, so the poster designer already is in their debt.
