Watch: Darker, Angrier Unused Alternate Trailer For 'Killing Them Softly'

The Playlist:
It seems that no matter how hard they try, Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt can't get anyone to see their films. Their first collaboration, 2007's "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," suffered through a difficult editing process only to be indifferently released by Warner Bros. (Thankfully, it has attained cult status since, and is slated for a retrospective screening at the Museum Of The Moving Image in December.) Their second pair-up, 2012's "Killing Them Softly," did better commercially, but hardly the kind of blockbuster numbers one expects from a Brad Pitt movie opening in wide release (7th place in its first weekend, with a tepid $6 million) and critics found it hard to embrace the film's darkly funny, sour core. Their loss.

Give it a whirl below, followed by the official trailer that was used. Which do you prefer? And in case you're wondering, the song in the alternate cut is Petula Clark's "The Windmills Of Your Mind."

I wanted to see it but I'm waiting for the dvd release at the end of November.

It's this movie that should have been angrier. It was too slow. Nothing happens.
