CATEGORIES Movie NewsMoviefone's New Release of the Week "Lincoln" What's It About? Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis take on the story of The Great Emancipator in "Lincoln." The film centers on honest Abe's final months in office, trying to unite a divided country and abolish slavery.

"The Comedy" What's It About?

"Killing Them Softly" What's It About? Brad Pitt leads an all-star cast of grizzled dudes (like Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini) as a Mob enforcer who goes after dumb criminals that rob a Mob card game. It's tough, it pulls no punches, and it's charmingly thuggish. In or Out?: In.
