New Posters For 'Zero Dark Thirty' & 'Killing Them Softly'

After a first poster that didn't even show the title, Universal has realized that people need to the know the name of a movie if they are going to buy tickets and so they have dropped a rather plain poster for "Zero Dark Thirty."

Meanwhile, Andrew Dominik also takes a chapter in recent American history -- the financial meltdown just before the 2008 election -- and brilliantly uses it as the background for his wickedly sharp "Killing Them Softly."

The picture stars Brad Pitt as hitman Jackie Cogan, who is tasked with finding two guys who knocked off a mob-protected game, and eliminating them. He contracts the job out to James Gandolfini and that is only the start of a movie that is as much a comment on the econonmic landscape as it is a moody anti-thriller. And these new Mondo-designed posters get right to the heart of the matter by putting a bullet in the head of statue of liberty. Subtle, this is not. You'll also get a clear idea of why it is called "Killing Them Softly," with a quote from the movie.

Featuring Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins and more, the picture opens on November 30th. [Huffington Post]
