Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are toasting to their new wine, possibly with the new rosé itself. The engaged power couple is releasing a vintage pink rosé from their 1,000-acre French estate on March 15 in the United States. It will be the first offering from their vineyard, which they acquired in 2008. The name of the wine? Miraval, the same name as their Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. The vineyard's predecessor had been called Pink Floyd -- the band recorded its album "The Wall" in studios on the estate grounds.

Brad Pitt's "Killing Them Softly" barely had a pulse at the box office this weekend. Not only did the crime flick debut with a weak $7 million, according to an estimate from distributor The Weinstein Co., but audiences hated it. Those who saw the film assigned it a rare average grade of F, according to market research firm CinemaScore. The last movie to earn that grade was January's horror film "The Devil Inside. " Pitt's movie got slaughtered by a handful of films that have been available to moviegoers for weeks.

Last month Brad Pitt appeared in a head-scratching commercial for the fragrance Chanel No. 5. This month he's starring in the small-time gangster flick "Killing Them Softly. " How are these things related? They're not. But on Thursday night's episode of "Conan," Conan O'Brien and his writers took the opportunity to slip Pitt's bizarre spoken-word non sequiturs from the Chanel No. 5 ad into a scene with Pitt opposite his old "True Romance" co-star, James Gandolfini. The results, surprisingly, aren't bad. And some might argue it improves the film, which has received mixed reviews.

With its stylized violence and unambiguous politics, "Killing Them Softly" has divided critics since it debuted at Cannes this year.

The filmmakers say they're experiencing that surprise firsthand, but say they believe that it isn't necessarily a bad thing. "You have the happy reaction and the unhappy reaction," director Andrew Dominik tells The Times of the filmgoers who've commented to him so far. "There are the people who think they're going to see a straight-ahead thriller and don't like all this other [stuff]

One look at Brad Pitt's slick hair, black leather jacket and gleaming shotgun might give you the impression that his new film, "Killing Them Softly," is a gritty, cold-blooded gangster flick - which it is. But as directed by Andrew Dominik, who also worked with Pitt on "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," the 2008-set "Killing Them Softly" is also a recession-era parable about the evils of corporate capitalism. For many critics, the film succeeds as a stylish genre exercise anchored by Pitt's unflappable performance but stumbles while trying to make a bigger point.
