Though UK audiences were able to see the film months ago, Andrew Dominik’s third feature, “Killing Them Softly,” is finally landing in North America this Friday (read our review from Cannes here). And the studio has released a short behind-the-scenes video along with a brief clip from the film to drum up excitement.
First up is a brief EPK-like featurette showcasing some quick glimpses on set along with interviews with the cast and Dominik talking about Brad Pitt’s talents, among other things. The most notable part of the video, however, has to be James Gandolfini calling the Kiwi-born Australian helmer an auteur. We’re right behind you, buddy. Next up, there’s a clip online of Brad Pitt’s Jackie Cogan finally catching up and meeting with an intimidated Scoot McNairy in a bar. It’s short, but sweet.
Check out our interview with Dominik right here where he talks about making the film, the longer cut of “The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford,” and much more. “Killing Them Softly” opens wide in North America this Friday.
