Bradd Pitt stars in Killing Them Softly opening this weekend.

Cruisin’ into Harkins Southlake 14 Theatres this weekend is Brad Pitt’s newest flick, “Killing Them Softly,” a dramedy about gangsters with a vengeance filled with a star-studded cast.

Brad Pitt stars as Jackie Cogan, an enforcer brought in by the mob to restore order to their crime circle after a trio of dumb street criminals rob a mob-protected card game, sending the criminal economy into a state of havoc. Cogan is not your typical hitman- he prefers to kill from a distance and avoid any chance for his victims to beg for mercy, a method he calls “killing them softly.” But as he gets closer to his targets, Frankie (Scott McNairy), Johnny Amato (Vincent Curatola) and Russell (Ben Mendelsohn), Cogan begins to realize that he may need to call in backup and calls in an old acquaintance hitman that turns out to be a drunk, lazy man that may not be up for the job as Cogan had hoped.  Given this film’s rating, be sure to drop the kiddos off at Harkins PlayCenter, where entertaining your child is less than the cost of a movie ticket.

Also re-opening this weekend at Harkins Southlake 14 Theatres is the modern classic, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” starring Jim Carrey. This is one of many films in Harkins Theatres’ Classics Series. Perfect way to kick off the holiday season!
