Looks wonderful. He is putting out the best movies.

No Doubt plans to tour behind the new album Push and Shove, but with each of the band members having a family now, the tour is something they have worried about. “We’ll have to learn from Angelina and Brad,” lead singer Gwen Stefani told The Daily Mail.

Great news for those who weren’t lucky enough to make the trip to the south of France for the Cannes premiere of “Killing Them Softly”: At long last, the first trailer has arrived! The two-and-a-half-minute sneak peek offers an extended glimpse of Brad Pitt doing his gritty crime-drama best as Jackie Cogan, a hit man hired by a crime boss (Ray Liotta) to find and kill a pair of overzealous upstarts who attempt to stake their claim by robbing a high-profile card game staged by Liotta’s character.

The film also stars James Gandolfini, Sam Shepard, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn and is based on George V. Higgins’ 1974 Boston mobster novel “Cogan’s Trade.” Here are the five key scenes from the first full-length trailer:

Brad Pitt lives by the philosophy of Killing Them Softly in the first trailer for the film
Aug. 1, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Probably like many of you, I’ve been anxiously waiting the next film from Andrew Dominik (CHOPPER, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD).

All we’ve gotten so far from KILLING THEM SOFTLY is a still and a clip. Now we finally have the trailer, and it’s a damn good one too. Dominik certainly knows his audience. The story adapted from George V. Higgins 1974 novel, Cogan’s Trade is one filled with great lines, a good bit of violence, and if “Here Was a Man” by Johnny Cash is any indication, then we are in for some excellent music as well. I know you guys will really enjoy this so check it out below.

Adapted from George V. Higgins novel and set in New Orleans, Killing Them Softly follows professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game. The film also features Scoot McNairy (Monsters), Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom), Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), with James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella and Sam Shepard among others.

What do I think of the trailer, Jared? Well thanks for asking! It looks fantastic! There is a little slow motion Brad in it, that’s all it needs. Scoot’s part looks very very good as well.

‘Killing Them Softly’ Trailer: Five Key Scenes
Brad Pitt oozes cool in first sneak peek of the gritty crime drama.

By Kara Warner (@karawarner)

Great news for those who weren’t lucky enough to make the trip to the south of France for the Cannes premiere of “Killing Them Softly”: At long last, the first trailer has arrived!

The two-and-a-half-minute sneak peek offers an extended glimpse of Brad Pitt doing his gritty crime-drama best as Jackie Cogan, a hit man hired by a crime boss (Ray Liotta) to find and kill a pair of overzealous upstarts who attempt to stake their claim by robbing a high-profile card game staged by Liotta’s character.

The film also stars James Gandolfini, Sam Shepard, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn and is based on George V. Higgins’ 1974 Boston mobster novel “Cogan’s Trade.” Here are the five key scenes from the first full-length trailer:

Cool Hand Brad
Before we saw Pitt as hit man Cogan, we knew the role would be a perfect way for the Oscar nominee to show off his effortless cool, which is exactly what he does as he questions the two nervous criminals, upsells the boss/moneyman (Richard Jenkins) and strolls casually through scenes sporting tinted aviator sunglasses, hair slicked back and a general casually cool swagger, all set to the tune of Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around.”

It’s All in a Name
It’s rare that we hear the basis for a film’s title in the dialogue of a trailer, but in this case, Pitt’s Cogan lays it out for us: “You ever kill anyone?” he asks someone casually. “They cry, they plead for their mothers. I like to kill ‘em softly,” he continues, “from a distance.” And with that brief line of dialogue, we learn all we need to know about Cogan’s work philosophy.

James Gandolfini, Back Where We Want Him
Gandolfini’s New York Mickey is not Tony Soprano, but he’s close enough to have us excited to watch the Emmy winner throw around some muscle and drink martinis. We don’t get to see Mickey and Cogan working side by side, but it’s clear that they both operate with a calm, no-nonsense approach to their work and that they are not to be messed with, as exemplified by Gandolfini’s one outburst in the trailer: “I don’t take orders from you!”

Violence as Art
While the plot of the film is the familiar gritty crime drama, director Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”) has made the violence and crime almost balletic with his lateral camerawork and use of slow-motion in certain action scenes. He also seems to have neatly paired the violence with quiet moments of dialogue that keeps the story moving and the entertainment levels up.

Quotes to Remember
Speaking of those quiet moments of dialogue, the brief snippets we hear from each and every castmember indicate that we’ll be quoting their lines when we leave the theater. In addition to the “kill them softly” line, Richard Jenkins puts things into perspective with his “This is a business of relationships” explanation for their hired-killers trade. The kicker, though, is the trailer’s final line of dialogue, as delivered by Pitt: “I’m living in America, and in America, you’re on your own.”

Check out everything we’ve got on “Killing Them Softly.”

This movie looks great, can’t wait for it. Brad look so damn hot and I love his slick back hair. Oscar, yes! Love ya Brad Pitt!
