First clip of Brad Pitt in Killing Them Softly

In the absence of a trailer, this'll be the first glimpse for many at Brad Pitt's ace new Cannes-impressing thriller, Killing Them Softly .

The latest film from director Andrew Dominik ( The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford ), Killing Them Softly (formerly known as Cogan's Trade ) sees Pitt as an oily mob enforcer, out to sort out two lowlifes who ripped off a high-stakes gambling den.

This clip gives the new title some context, as Pitt's Jackie Cogan discusses his preferring method of offing targets.

It's a brief clip, but it holds promise of another superb Pitt performance, as well as more goodness from the most reliable supporting man in the business, Richard Jenkins.
