As you might've gleaned by now, Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly" is not your average movie about low lifes and gangsters. When we caught the film at Cannes, we called it "breathtakingly brilliant and admirably ambitious" as as well as "angry" with the filmmaker painting not just a story about about the fate of some hoods who knock off a mob-protected poker game, but a portrait of America itself as it rots from the inside.

Meanwhile, moving in the opposite direction we have three new one sheets for Joe Wright's sumptuous "Anna Karenina" focusing on the love triangle that forms the basis of the story.

Starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson, you should already known the film is adaptation Leo Tolstoy's classic novel with the titular woman married to an aristocrat, but who has feelings for soldier. But what makes this outing unique is that Wright has shot the movie almost entirely on a single soundstage with interlocking sets, which should add a visual pizazz heretofore unseen in this kind of setting. We can't say too much else at the moment except to keep your eyes peeled next week for our further thoughts on the film.

Co-starring Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson, Holliday Grainger and more, the film opens in the U.S. on November 9th. [IMPA]
