The gangster flick written and directed by Andrew Dominik ('The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford') puts a hit on Blu-ray this March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Killing Them Softly' for Blu-ray on March 26.

Brad Pitt delivers an explosive performance as Jackie Cogan, an enforcer for the Mob in Andrew Dominik’s gritty yet stylish crime thriller 'Killing Them Softly.' Cogan must restore order in the criminal economy after a Mob protected card game is heisted by a group of inexperienced crooks. Brad Pitt stars along with Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella, Trevor Long, Slaine and Sam Shepard.

Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter called 'Killing Them Softly,' "A juicy, bloody, grimy crime drama that satisfies!" Rolling Stone film critic, Peter Travers wrote, "The acting is aces, especially Pitt mixing it up with the superb James Gandolfini...They make this movie a potently nasty provocation." In his review for The Telegraph, Tim Robey called the film, “An electrifying thriller!”

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include deleted scenes and a making-of featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
