While the American Film Market is full of potential projects – with the majority never coming to fruition — it’s also a place for producers to show off their completed films for distribution. Today we’ve got early looks at two upcoming projects and we’ll start off with the most-anticipated first. The Sweet Hereafter director Atom Egoyan, who will hopefully bounce back from Chloe, completed production on his West Memphis Three drama Devil’s Knot this summer and Bloody Disgusting have the first stills, featuring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth.
There’s also a teaser poster for the film that will hopefully be a strong counterpart to the Peter Jackson-produced documentary arriving this December. Check out the images above and below for the film also starring Stephen Moyer, Mireille Enos, Kristopher Higgins, Seth Meriwether, James Hamrick, Alessandro Nivola, Collette Wolfe, Kris Polaha, Amy Ryan, Dane DeHaan and Matt Letscher.
We’ve also got the first batch of images from the directorial debut from David Hayter, writer of X-Men, X2 and Watchmen. Wolves follows Conan the Barbarian star Jason Momoa and X-Men: First Class‘ Lucas Till, who can both be seen below, along with Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief actress Merritt Patterson. Again, Bloody Disgusting have the images and an initial teaser power for the film starring a young man (Till) who transforms into a werewolf and escapes to a small town called Lupine Ridge after being accused of murdering his parents. But this isn’t just any normal town; Lupine Ridge is a hotbed of supernatural activity and may also hold secrets to his past.
Expect both films to land in 2013.

Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
