'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' poster and director David Lowery on Rooney Mara, violence, and indies

It’s Texas sometime in the 1970s and Ruth Guthrie and Bob Muldoon are in love. But in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, the passionate, earnest couple cannot stay together. There’s a confrontation with the police, and Bob (Casey Affleck) ends up in prison, while Ruth (Rooney Mara) raises their daughter alone. But Ruth’s quiet life is upended when she gets word that Bob has escaped from prison.

With Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and will be released in theaters on Aug. 16 (and VOD on Aug. 23), director David Lowery crafts a tightly constructed, lyrical portrait of people tied together by love, tragic circumstance, and obligation. And even though there are guns, wounds, threats, and betrayals, Lowery has somehow managed to make nearly every character empathetic. EW spoke with Lowery about the film, his love of Robert Altman, his use of violence in the film, and the state of independent movies. Take a look after the break. WARNING: MINOR SPOILERS.

Looks like some of the luster has worn off.

The logo for Josh Brolin’s new film Oldboy is written in the actor’s own handwriting, inspired by his character in the film, who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years and spends years writing letters to his daughter.

He is suddenly released, which inspires him to find out the reason for his imprisonment — and results in the discovery of a tangled web of conspiracy.

Oldboy also stars Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. Directed by Spike Lee, the film will be released October 25.

James Franco in 'As I Lay Dying' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

AS-I-LAY-DYING

As I Lay Dying has never been adapted for the screen before. William Faulkner’s 1930 classic is an especially complicated tale, alternating between dozens of points of view, while telling the story of a family’s journey to bury the matriarch. It was a bold decision for James Franco to take on the task.

Despite his forays into experimental art, academia, and short stories, Franco is still best known for his acting work. For As I Lay Dying, Franco not only wrote the screenplay, he also directed the film and stars as Darl Bundren. Though he’s often scrutinized for taking on too many ambitious projects, Franco has been appropriately thoughtful and introspective about the monumental task of adapting a literary classic. In an interview in January 2011, long before filming began, Franco told EW:

“You want to capture the tone, but you can’t work in exactly the same way … I don’t believe it’ll feel the same if you divide it as rigidly as the book, like titles that say ‘Cash’ and then you’re with Cash. You can slip into the characters’ heads and give them their inner voice for a while, but it has to be more fluid because movies just work differently than books. Movies, in some ways because they deal in images, are more concrete. I want to be loyal to the book — my approach is to always be loyal in a lot a ways — but in order to be loyal I will have to change some things for the movie.”

Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) also star. Check out the As I Lay Dying trailer after the jump.

See the 'Thanks for Sharing' poster with Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo

We’re addicted to stories about sex addiction.

The ailment gets the romantic dramedy treatment in Stuart Blumberg’s directorial debut Thanks for Sharing, a multi-character story about three sex addicts in therapy and their attempts to live in the world. Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo lead the ensemble cast as Phoebe and Adam, a new couple just trying to make things work in spite of Adam’s addiction.

Josh Gad and Pink also feature heavily in the film as a pair of addicts who seem to find solace and comfort in each other’s company. Co-written by Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) and Matt Winston, the film premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and co-stars Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson, and Patrick Fugit.

The trailer teased a bittersweet tone reminiscent of The Kids Are All Right, but, how do you make a poster about such a complicated, and seemingly R-rated subject matter? Take a look after the jump and let us know what you think.

'The Heat' gets a killer Mondo poster -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Now this is how you bring The Heat. (As opposed to this. Good grief.) This morning, Mondo revealed exclusively to EW their righteous treatment of the Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy buddy cop comedy. The collectible poster will be available for free while supplies last at Alamo Drafthouse theaters nationwide at 10 p.m. opening-night showtimes on June 27. Get there.

“I am a huge fan of the work Mondo does, so I was really pushing for them to do a poster for The Heat,” director Paul Feig said in a statement. “When they sent me their take I cracked up, as they really nailed it.”

“Everything Paul Feig touches is amazing, so were incredibly excited when he reached out to us and asked us if we wanted to do a poster for The Heat. After watching an early screening of it, we were sold on the movie’s hilarity and this poster is a direct result,” said Mondo creative director Justin Ishmael.

There is much to love here, from artist Tom “The Dude Designs” Hodge’s use of Beverly Hills Cop/Flashdance paint blaze font, to that cat reaching out for a big attack hug, to a teensy bespectacled Feig as a SWAT team member. (Though is it odd that the actors’ names are over the wrong heads?) The poster succeeds in making The Heat look equal parts retro ridiculous and high-stakes action fireball fun. I’ll even get behind that terrifically meaningless tagline: “Action’s never been so hot!” READ FULL STORY

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch in 'Prince Avalanche' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

There’s nothing like spending a summer painting road lines on a desolate Texas road to really get to know someone. In Prince Avalanche, Alvin (Paul Rudd) and his girlfriend’s brother Lance (Emile Hirsch) do just that. It’s the summer of 1988 and the mismatched pair are on the job out in the middle of nowhere for the duration.

Directed by David Gordon Green, Prince Avalanche premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and was adapted from the 2011 Icelandic film Either Way. Though Green started his career making lyrical odes to the overlooked classes and places with films like George Washington and All the Real Girls, more recently, Green has found success (and failure) with star-studded broad comedies like Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Based on the trailers and early reviews, Prince Avalanche promises both poignancy and comedy and seems to be an amalgam of Green’s diverse tastes.

Click below to take a look at the new poster for the film, which opens in theaters and VOD on August 9.

'Man of Steel' gets two Mondo art posters

Warner Bros. has already created some eye-catching posters for Man of Steel, but now Mondo has released some striking new art for the upcoming Superman movie.

Mondo, a collectable art boutique that has caught fanboys’ attention with its stylish takes on art for movies like Star Wars and TV shows like Game of Thrones, commissioned two artists, both Mondo alums, to create posters for the Zack Snyder-directed Superman film. One, by Australian artist Ken Taylor, features young Clark Kent near his Smallville home, an image seen in Man of Steel‘s teaser trailer. The other poster, by Uruguay-based artist Martin Ansin, depicts Superman above planet earth, along with some illustrations of other characters in the film. READ FULL STORY

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' teaser poster: Where there's smoke...

…there’s Benedict Cumberbatch as a big, bad, dwarf-hating dragon.

The motion-capture character himself doesn’t actually appear on this new poster for the second film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit series, which trades goofy dwarf portraits for something moodier. Look at the entrance to the Lonely Mountain in the center of the image, though, and you’ll spy a veil of mist covering a tantalizing golden gleam, which could represent either the treasures within the mountain or Smaug’s fire breath. Good luck, little Bilbo (Martin Freeman) — you’re gonna need it.
