bill-swift - December 1, 2012

The holidays are usually a time of good will, cheer and the act of giving. But in my household it's usually a lot of shotguns, yelling and rogue card games. That's why I'm so excited to see the new TV spot for Brad Pitt's Killing Them Softly, a film this joyous season which I can finally identify with. It's got Pitt with a quiff, leather jacket, facial hair and gun kicking ass and taking names--everything I generally put on my Christmas list. Last year all I got instead was a new Ferrari. Pfft. Thanks for nothing, Santa!

Adapted from George V. Higgins' novel and set in New Orleans, Killing Them Softly follows professional enforcer Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high-stakes, mob-protected poker game. The film also features Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn,Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, with James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella, and Sam Shepard.

Killing Them Softly opens November 30th.
