The Weinstein Company has premiered the first trailer for -starring "". Staying true to its title, the sneak peek highlights various violent scenes involving a group of mobsters and an eccentric enforcer named Jackie Cogan, who is played by Pitt himself.

TWC will release the film in the United States on October 19.
