Oscar! Oscar! Actor Brad Pitt plays a point man named Jackie Cogan in these newly released teaser clip of the highly anticipated crime drama, â€œKilling Them Softlyâ€ based on the George V. Higginsâ€™ novel â€œCoganâ€™s Tradeâ€ and directed by Andrew Dominik (see video below).
â€œIt can get touchy-feely, emotional, not fun, a lot of fuss. They cry, they plead, they beg, they piss themselves, they call for their mothers. Gets embarrassing. I like to kill them softly, from a distance, not close enough for feelings,â€ Bradâ€™s character explaining why he likes to kill them softly.
We are beginning to understand why this movie received a long standing ovation at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, if Bradâ€™s brilliant performance in this 50 second clip is any indication.
â€œKilling Them Softlyâ€ hits theaters on September 21, 2012.
