‘The Raid’ and Its New Title Get U.S. Poster; ‘Attenberg,’ ‘Starlet,’ and ‘Pilgrim Song’ One-Sheets Arrive

Written by on February 24, 2012 

Okay… by this point, we can all acknowledge that The Raid‘s Redemption subtitle is silly and unneeded — in spite of whatever future plans Sony may have — so we can either a) get used to it, or b) just call it The Raid, nothing more and nothing less. I’m opting for the latter.

With that unnecessary intrusion out of the way, I can also tell you that a new, redemptive (I’ll stop now) U.S. poster has come in from Collider; if you’ve seen the initial piece by this point, however, it should look mighty familiar. (Save for a new tint, some nice quotes, and ten extra letters at the bottom.)

Take a look below, read our Sundance review here, and see the film when it opens on March 23rd:

Taking us further down the line of festival alumni is FilmSchoolRejects, who’ve landed the exclusive poster for Athina Rachel Tsangari‘s Greek hit Attenberg. Starring Ariane Labed and Dogtooth helmer Yorgos Lanthimos, the drama centers on “Marina, a young woman living with her father in a decaying, seaside factory town, [who] acquires a new perspective on the mysteries of human nature after she meets a stranger.” Should this prove to be anything like the co-star’s international hit, I’d like to see this without knowing much more.

But, boy, does this item make me curious — maybe in ways I don’t fully understand. Attenberg opens in New York City on March 9th, and you can take a look at the poster below in the meantime:

Thanks to TOH, we’ve also got the first look at one of this year’s SXSW titles, that being Sean Baker‘s Starlet. Dree Hemingway (yes, she’s related to that Hemingway) and Besedka Johnson star in the drama, which you read a synopsis of below:

“STARLET explores the unlikely friendship between 21 year-old Jane (Dree Hemingway), and 85 year-old Sadie (Besedka Johnson), two women whose worlds collide in California’s San Fernando Valley. Jane spends her time getting high with her dysfunctional roommates, Melissa and Mikey, while taking care of her Chihuahua, Starlet. Sadie, an elderly widow, passes her days alone, tending to her flower garden.

After a confrontation between the two women at Sadie’s yard sale, Jane uncovers a hidden stash of money inside a relic from Sadie’s past. Jane attempts to befriend the caustic older woman in an effort to solve her dilemma and secrets emerge as their relationship grows.”

And here is the poster:

Last but not least, THR has graced our presence with yet another contender at 2012’s SXSW — in this case, Pilgrim Song. Led by a cast of relative unknowns, Song is the sophomore effort of Martha Stephens (Passenger Pigeons), and follows “a pink-slipped music teacher [who] ponders his stalled relationship and place in the world during an arduous trek across Kentucky’s Sheltowee Trace Trail.”

Check out the poster below:
