killing-them-softly-latest-posterDespite dying a swift death at the box office, KILLING THEM SOFTLY continues to play at theaters around the country in hope that word-of-mouth might gain it some traction.

HIGGINS and features a spectacular cast that includes BRAD PITT (who also produced), RAY LIOTTA, RICHARD JENKINS, SCOOT McNAIRY, BEN MENDELSOHN and JAMES GANDOLFINI.

Not Even An Impressive Cast Can Save Brad Pitt’s Beleaguered ‘Killing Them Softly’

killing-them-softly-poster1Currently dying in theaters and inexplicably scoring horribly on aggregate ratings sites, KILLING THEM SOFTLY is a surprisingly well crafted crime drama that manages to blend robbery, revenge and a touch of social commentary ( ie: the financial crises of 2008). Directed by ANDREW DOMINIK from his own adaptation of a novel by GEORGE V. HIGGINS, the spectacular cast includes BRAD PITT, RAY LIOTTA, RICHARD JENKINS, SCOOT McNAIRY, BEN MENDELSOHN and JAMES GANDOLFINI. With names like that on the bill, failure at the box office certainly isn’t the fault of casting. During a press conference to promote the film, BRAD PITT and ANDREW DOMINIK talked about working with such an impressive array of talent. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

‘Day Of Reckoning’ A Tough Sell To ‘Universal Soldier’ Star Dolph Lundgren

universal_soldier_day_of_reckoning_ver3Already available via VOD but opening in theaters today, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING is a video game style action movie that centers on a man who awakens in a hospital swearing revenge against the people responsible for the murder of his family. Short on story but long on rock-’em, sock-’em action, the film is number four in the familiar franchise. Co-written and directed by JOHN HYAMS, the cast includes DOLPH LUNDGREN, JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME, SCOTT ADKINS, KRISTOPHER VAN VARENBERG and MARIAH BONNER.

Twenty years after appearing in the first UNIVERSAL SOLDIER film and just three years after the previous installment, DOLPH LUNDGREN is no stranger to the kind of work the franchise calls for. During our interview last week, the action star talked about how he didn’t really want to participate in the last UNIVERSAL SOLDIER movie and how, until he got swayed by director HYAMS, he didn’t want to be involved in this one either.
