New Stills & Official Poster For ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’

Posted by , on April 28, 2012 at 8:44 am 

One of the most heart-wrenching, dazzling, inventive films you’ll find this year is only a few months away. Fox Searchlight is finally kicking up the marketing for Sundance’s runaway success, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and I couldn’t be happier to share the materials today. We’ve got the first official poster and some new stills today for the debut film from Benh Zeitlin.

In our top 10 of the festival, the film, which also  took home the top Dramatic Grand Jury Prize award, takes you on a journey into the Bathtub, a fictionalized bayou backwoods community of Louisiana that serves as parable for living on the edge of the world. Told through the eyes of 6 year old girl Hushpuppy, Quvenzhané Wallis who delivers perhaps the greatest child performance of recent history, the film is a whirlwind of wonder and foreboding doom.

Set to also play at Cannes, one can see the stills and poster above and below via Fox Searchlight, Facebook and USA Today. And read my full review here.

Beasts of the Southern Wild opens on June 27th, 2012.
