After more delays and name changes than you can shake a stick at (this was previously known as Cogan’s Trade), the trailer for Brad Pitt thriller Killing Them Softly has finally appeared online.

And the good news is it looks pretty ace, jammed with plenty of hard-nosed dialogue and in-you-face action.

Pitt plays Jackie Cogan, an enforcer who is hired to look into a heist at a poker game.

Also starring Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini and Richard Jenkins, and directed by Andrew Dominik (who teamed up with Pitt on The Assassination of Jesse James), Killing Them Softly is released on September 21.
