Two films that have yet to secure release dates, or premiere anywhere for that matter, have been given new looks today. We’ll start with the next film from Two Lovers and We Own the Night director James Gray, which may or may not be titled Low Life. Secured by The Weinstein Company for a likely 2013 release, the film stars The Dark Knight Rises supporter Marion Cotillard, who immigrates from Poland to America, but her life takes a turn for the worst as she gets wrapped up with a pimp (Joaquin Phoenix), all while a magician (Jeremy Renner) attempts to befriend her. Following some scans, we’ve got the first official photo of the former two actors thanks to NYTimes, featuring what looks to be early on in the film in the immigration process.
We’ve also got three new stills from Robert Redford‘s next drama The Company You Keep. While our first official image featured lead Shia LaBeouf, these new peeks via Collider gives us a look at Sound of my Voice and Another Earth star Brit Marling, as well as Redford himself in a supporting role. With a script from Lem Dobbs (The Limey, Haywire) and a score by Cliff Martinez (Drive, Contagion), the film is adapted from Neil Gordon‘s novel, centering on “a former Weather Underground militant Jim Grant (Redford) wanted by the FBI for 30 years for a Bank of Michigan robbery, who must go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious reporter (LaBeouf) hell-bent on making a name for himself.” Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Jackie Evancho, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper and Susan Sarandon round out the rest of the stellar ensemble. Check out the stills below as we wait to hear when it will arrive, with sure bets at a fall festival.
Low Life and The Company You Keep will hopefully have premieres on the fall festival circuit, before arriving in 2013.

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not […]
Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
