First trailer for Killing Them Softly blasts online: watch now

Killing Them Softly has released a first trailer online, and it’s every bit as stylish and classy as you’d expect.

Directed by Andrew Dominik ( The Assassination Of Jesse James ), Killing Them Softly follows Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), who investigates a heist that took place during a poker game.

The thriller’s impressive cast also includes Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins and James Gandolfini.

With a soundtrack courtesy of Johnny Cash, some gorgeous visuals, and Pitt on fine form (“I like to kill them softly, from a distance,” he whispers, confirming the title comes from a line of dialogue rather than a Fugees song), this is looking like one of the most interesting films of the year.

Check out the trailer below…

Killing Them Softly opens 21 September 2012.
