- KILLING THEM SOFTLY
The Weinstein Company has moved the release date of Killing Them Softly from an October 19 to November 30.
The Andrew Dominik-directed crime drama stars Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins and Ray Liotta. Pitt plays an enforcer who investigates a heist in a mob-sponsored card game.
Harvey Weinstein confirmed the move by stating, “In this industry it is a very rare event to look at a weekend where your movie could open as the only wide release picture,” he said. “November 30th will allow us to bring Killing Them Softly to a wide audience without competition. Additionally, the critical response to the movie has been very favorable especially on the amazing performances and November 30th positions us better in the Awards season calendar.”
What we heard about the film as well as what we seen from the trailer so far, certainly looks like it will be a great film, we just hope that this change of release date will help its chances at some Oscars.
