When it comes to Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, the most recent news has been bad news. While the film made its world premiere a few months ago at the Cannes Film Festival, it was recently announced that The Weinstein Company pushed the film back on the released schedule, moving it from September 21st to October 19th (note that the move had nothing to do with quality, but rather an opposite-direction shift by the studio for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master). And do you want to makes the burn of the pushback hurt that much more? The newly released first trailer for the film.

Posted over at The Huffington Post, the preview does a good job of establishing characters and plot without giving too much away, and boy am I intrigued. Check out the trailer below.

Dominik's follow-up to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and based on the novel by George V. Higgins, the movie follows a man named Jackie Cogan, a professional mob enforcer who is called in to find a pair of criminals responsible for holding up a mpb-run poker game. The film has an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, Vincent Curatola and Ben Mendelsohn. Look for Killing Them Softly when it hits theaters in a few months and head over to our Blend Film Database to see more from it.
