Are the 6 New 'Killing Them Softly' Posters Among the Best of the Year? We Think So.

Brad Pitt in 'Killing Them Softly'
The Weinstein Company has released no less than six (!) posters for their timely Brad Pitt vehicle (and hopeful awards contender) "Killing Them Softly." And by all accounts, all six of them are among the best promo images of the year.

Andrew Dominik's heavily stylized adaptation of George V. Higgins' 1974 crime novel "Cogan's Trade" centers on a mob enforcer (Pitt) sent to Boston to take out of a couple of small-time hoods who robbed a poker game.

"The screenplay is a treatise on why the tough guys always win in a society invariably set against itself," wrote Eric Kohn in his review out of Cannes, where the film world premiered earlier this year. "Dominik has constructed a provocative revisionist history that beats the original Obama election message of hope and progress to a bloody mass."

"Killing Them Softly" opens in select theaters on November 30. Check out the six posters below (courtesy of Fandango, Huffington Post and Moviefone.)

    Any idea who the designers were?

    They didn't know which style to go with, so they went with them all? Isn't that a bit lazy? ;) (To give them credit, they may be implying that the film encompasses all those styles and can't be defined by any one of them....)
