Exclusive: Official Righteous Kill Pics

Pacino and De Niro together again

Do you really need anything beyond the words 'Pacino and De Niro' to get excited about seeing Righteous Kill? How about a look at them in action to stoke your fire? Empire has been given world exclusive first images from the pair's second team up after Heat (Godfather Part II doesn't count, as we all know, because they didn't share the screen). Click the images below for a closer look.

In Righteous Kill, directed by Jon Avnet and written by Inside Man scribe Russell Gerwitz, Pacino and De Niro play a pair of cops on the trail of a serial killer. Brian Dennehy, Carla Gugino, 50 Cent and John Leguizamo also star. Martin Scorsese does not, despite rumours.
