With Oscar season hitting its stride, one film appears to be flying under the radar that may emerge as a sleeper contender: Killing Them Softly, a crime drama with a star-studded cast headlined by Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini. The film has generated little buzz and likely as a result the Weinstein Co. has released a second trailer for the upcoming film.
In the film, Pitt plays a hitman hired to eliminate a pair of small-time criminals who decide to rob the wrong group. The cast is filled with numerous ex-Sopranos stars including Vincent Curatola and Max Casella.
Killing Them Softly is directed by Andrew Dominik, the man behind the oft-overlooked The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. The film hits theaters on Nov. 30. Watch the latest trailer below.
