After getting positive reviews at Cannes earlier this year and a shifting release date this fall, the crime dramedy Killing Them Softly finally will reach theaters Nov. 30. It stars Brad Pitt in what's said to be a terrific performance as a professional hit man hired to track down a trio of criminals who rock the local crime syndicate in New Orleans after ripping off a poker game. The movie is directed by Andrew Dominik, who also teamed with Pitt on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and who based this film on the 1974 novel Cogan's Trade.
Is your interest piqued? If you'd like to get a jump start and read the book before the film comes out, we have your chance to win a copy of Cogan's Trade as well as 10 mini-posters for the film, 3 of which are Mondo-created (too cool, right? Check out 9 of the 10 below). All you need to do is tell us your favorite heist movie in the comments below. Winner will be chosen at random next Wed., Nov. 7, and notified via email. She/he will have 3 days to respond before an alternate is chosen. U.S. residents 18 and over, only.

Killing Them Softly
Bonnie and Clyde all the way!!!
101 Dalmations - the theft of those Dalmations was awful to see!
Friends Of Eddie Coyle. Must see.
The Italian Job
Snatch narrowly beating out The Sting, Ocean's 11, and The Thomas Crown Affair.
Does Taken count? They did "take" something..lol..if not Point Break! :)
Idk if Good Fellows will count, but if it doesn't, people will kill me for this, Con Air. None come straight to mind right now.
Snatch definitely! The story, the twists, and everything else made it so great !
OOOOR Bonnie and Clyde. Just a classic and it's based on a true story!
Snatch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boxy, emotion, symbolism(ex: squeaky toy that looks like a pig that the dog eats while it's owner says: "Don't Snatch!"), great fighting scenes, amazing Irish Gypsy accents portrayed, and of course, the robberies and stone that tie the characters together! Oh and the fact that Brad Pitt is the one portraying the Irish Gypsy accent doesn't hurt either!
Jules Dassin's RIFIFI - that workman-like half hour heist scene with no dialogue is really great. Still one of my favorites.
"The Killing". Although "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" and "Dog Day Afternoon" are right up there.
"The Anderson Tapes" or "Before the devil knows you're dead"
Le Circle Rouge
The Sting is my favorite, but I do love all of Brad Pitt's movies
The Good Thief
The Italian Job.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
