The first trailer for the Brad Pitt underworld thriller Killing Them Softly is light on plot, and heavy on moody atmospherics, from the smoke slowly wafting from Pitt’s goatee-ringed mouth to the killer use of Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around.” The film won raves when it premiered at Cannes for Pitt’s performance as a mob enforcer tasked with tracking down two lowlifes who robbed a mobbed up poker game. Check out the trailer below:

Killing Them Softly, which reunites Pitt with writer-director Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford), opens on Oct. 19.
