'Killing Them Softly' Pushed Back To Earn More Moneys

September 12, 2012


You're going to have to wait a bit longer to watch Brad Pitt slick his hair back.

Noticing that there aren't any wide releases hitting theaters November 30, Harvey Weinstein has decreed, "Hey, someone should open a movie then, so we'll do that," pushing Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly to that weekend, just over a month from its original October 19 release. Confirming the shift, Weinstein laid out his pretty obvious motivations, saying:

"In this industry it is a very rare event to look at a weekend where your movie could open as the only wide release picture. November 30th will allow us to bring Killing Them Softly to a wide audience without competition. Additionally, the critical response to the movie has been very favorable especially on the amazing performances and November 30th positions us better in the Awards season calendar.

Makes sense, but someone could have told Ray Liotta before he bought his ticket to see himself.
