It's screening in competition and this year's Cannes film festival - and now you watch the first clip from the Brad Pitt thriller here on Orange Wednesdays & Film!
Here's the official synopsis for Cogan's Trade, the George V Higgins novel on which Killing Them Softly is based;
[Cogan's Trade] tracks Jackie Cogan's career in a gangland version of law and order. For Cogan is an enforcer; and when the Mob's rules get broken, he gets hired to ply his trade - murder. In the gritty, tough-talking pages of Higgins' 1974 national best-seller, Cogan is called in when a high-stake card game under the protection of the Mob is heisted.
Expertly, with a ruthless businessman's efficiency, a shrewd sense of other people's weaknesses, and a style as cold as his stare, Cogan moves with reliable precision to restore the status quo as ill-conceived capers and double-dealing shenanigans erupt into high-voltage violence.
