Every week the studios release several new posters, images or concept art for many of our favorite upcoming films. We could put out each image individually, but unless it’s a first look at a major character, like Iron Man for example, we think it’s much more interesting to present them to our readers all at once.
Today is a busy day because we have posters, images and concept art for 11 different movies. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Below you will find images and synopsis’s for the following films – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, Tangled, Hobo with a Shotgun, Paul, Paris, I’ll Kill You, Life in a Day, The Beaver, Red State, Wolf Creek 2 and the trailer for the Santa-hunting movie Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.
There’s a lot to look at so let’s jump right into it:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1
This smooch-filled photo of the sparkly Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and emotional Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) was taken in Rio De Janerio, Brazil, while filming the two-part ending to The Twilight Saga. If you like these types of paparazzi-style photos then head over to Splash News Online for a big selection of them.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will once again star Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene. The movie is directed by Bill Condon and is based off the best selling vampire novel by Stephanie Meyer.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 sinks it’s fangs into theaters November 18th, 2010 while The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 won’t get to bite until November 16th, 2012.

Tangled is the classic fairytale story of Rapunzel told with a modern Disney twist. It stars the voice talents of Mandy Moore (Saved) as Rapunzel, Zachary Levi (Chuck) as Flynn Ryder, Donna Murphy (Spider-Man 2) as Mother Gothel and Brad Garrett (Everyone Loves Raymond) as Hook-Hand Thug.
There are 40 stills altogether and you can head over to Collider to see them all.
Tangled comes out Thanksgiving weekend and will be Disney’s 50th animated film – though it has received very little press or hype thanks to the mammoth marketing push for Disney’s other film TRON: Legacy. Tangled’s trailers and TV spots make it seem like a fun, light-hearted movie that parents can enjoy along with their kids.
Tangled lets it’s hair down in theaters November 24th, 2010.
Hobo with a Shotgun
Initially, Hobo with a Shotgun was one of several fake movie trailers that played along with Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s throwback to double feature B-movies, Grindhouse. Although Grindhouse under-performed at the box office, the fake trailers were so well received that three of them got the green light to become full-length feature films. Machete was the first, Hobo with a Shotgun is the second and Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving will be the third.
Hobo with a Shotgun stars well-seasoned actor Rutger Hauer (Sin City) as “a homeless vigilante who blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun.” If the entire movie is half as violent as the trailer, then Hobo with a Shotgun should be good bloody fun.
Hobo with a Shotgun wanders into your theater bumming for change in Spring 2011.
Simon Pegg helped turn the horror comedy genre on its ear in 2004 with the help of director Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead. Now Pegg hopes to achieve the same level of success with director Greg Mottola (Superbad) in his alien comedy film, Paul.
Paul is a story about “two British comic-book geeks, Clive (Nick Frost) and Graeme (Simon Pegg), traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien, Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) outside Area 51.” Alien comedies are hard to pull off – see My Stepmother is an Alien and Coneheads for proof – but the trailer for Paul combined with all the star power in the film should reinforce expectations that the movie will be good.
Paul stars Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz), Sigourney Weaver (Ghostbusters III), Jane Lynch (Glee), Kristen Wiig (MacGruber), Bill Hader (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Jason Bateman (Arrested Development).
Look for Paul to crash land into theaters March 18th, 2011.
Paris, I’ll Kill You
Paris, I’ll Kill You is the horror equivalent of Heavy Metal – there are various directors producing a handful of short films, all telling the same story which will inevitably lead up to the same ending. The film that inspired this project, Paris, je t’aime or Paris, I Love You, was all about finding love in Paris and was a series of short films put together by directors such as Gus Van Sant, the Coen brothers and Wes Craven. Paris, I’ll Kill You will focus more on the horror aspects of the city.
If the idea sounds good to you, then the list of directors attached to the project should definitely peak your interest – Joe Dante (The Hole), Xavier Gens (Hitman), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), cult favorite Ryuhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train) and my personal favorite, Christopher Smith (Black Death).
Paris, I’ll Kill You will ask the question, “If a mime screams, does anyone hear it?” sometime in 2012.
