We’ve got five new posters to show you for The Adventures of Tintin, Tanner Hall, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and We Need to Talk about Kevin. We usually don’t show posters for movies that have already been released, but these UK posters for ROTPOTA are too great not to share with you. The poster for We Need to Talk about Kevin is also delightfully old-school in its design and while I wouldn’t hang it on my wall (I don’t want a creepy homicidal teenager staring at me), it’s certainly eye-catching. As for Tintin and Tanner Hall, it’s floating heads and faces. Fascinating.
Hit the jump to check out the posters with a synopsis and release date for each film.
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (December 23rd) [Poster via IMP Awards]
Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures Present “The Adventures of Tintin” directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish.

TANNER HALL (September 9th)
As Fernanda (Rooney Mara) enters her senior year at Tanner Hall—a sheltered boarding school in New England—she’s faced with unexpected changes in her group of friends when a childhood acquaintance, the charismatic yet manipulative trouble-maker Victoria (Georgia King), appears. Shy and studious, Fernanda is usually the voice of reason among her friends—adventurous and sexy Kate (Brie Larsen) and tomboy Lucasta (Amy Ferguson)—but when she begins a complicated friendship with Gio (Tom Everett Scott), an older family friend, she decides it’s finally time to take some risks. Jealous of Fernanda’s exciting relationship, Victoria begins to sabotage Fernanda’s plans and plots to publicly humiliate her. Meanwhile, Lucasta struggles with her newfound feelings towards another classmate, and mischievous Kate is too preoccupied with making her teachers nervous to pay much attention to her actual classes. However, as each of the girls flirt with adulthood, they realize they still need each other to help get through their first grown-up decisions—and the consequences they bring.

A suspenseful and psychologically gripping exploration into a parent dealing with her child doing the unthinkable, We Need to Talk About Kevin is the highly-anticipated third feature from director Lynne Ramsay and features a tour-de-force performance by Tilda Swinton.
