Although he’s not taking part in Cannes Film Festival this year, Sony Pictures Classics is here to remind you that this summer will see yet another Woody Allen feature. We’ve received a variety of stills from Blue Jasmine (including a new one above), but ahead of a trailer debut, the first poster has now landed. Featuring our female lead Cate Blanchett below a list of the top-notch ensemble, it’s a fairly plain piece of art, but for a man whose films are sold on name alone, it works just fine.
Next up, following our first look at footage, we’ve got our first poster for one of Sundance Film Festival’s finest dramas, David Lowery‘s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Featuring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, the hand-painted poster comes from the director’s brother. We’ve also got the first one-sheet from The Weinstein Company’s upcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, featuring Idris Elba in the title role (and serving as our first look, of sorts, at the actor) and directed by Justin Chadwick. Check out all three posters below via Moviefone/Slashfilm/Yahoo.
Blue Jasmine lands on July 26th, while Ain’t Them Bodies Saints hits theaters on August 16th and VOD three days later. Mandela arrives in the fall, specifically on November 29th.

Though his latest film, Brick Mansions, sees him taking on an antagonistic role, allowing [...]
As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. 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 [...]
