The American Film Market is officially underway, which means production companies and filmmakers are seeking financing for projects or trying to sell international rights for finished films. Promotion artwork can help them do that. Briefly, here are some new AFM posters:
- Everything Carries Me to You with Matthew Rhys, Jessica Brown Findlay, Freddie Fox, and Kate Walsh.
- Iron Sky: The Coming Race, the sequel to 2012’s underwhelming moon Nazi movie (we also have the teaser trailer for the sequel, which may or may not contain zombie Hitler riding a dinosaur).
- Tomorrow starring Stephen Fry and Joss Stone, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
- Lavalantula starring Steve Guttenberg, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbook, Nia Peebles, and lava-breathing tarantulas.

Everything Carries Me To You
After discovering a note suggesting her lover may be cheating, an ambitious young dancer must examine her feelings about the relationships while her dreams are threatened by her all consuming evaluation.
Iron Sky: The Coming Race
Here’s the synopsis from Iron Sky: The Coming Race‘s crowdfunding page:
Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity – or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.
Injured in Afghanistan, Tesla has returned home to London, alone with his regrets and a bleak horizon. This is, until he makes an unlikely friendship. The charming Sky bounds into Tesla’s world, whose joy, enthusiasm and hope prove infectious. Yet Sky is hiding a secret and it’s catching up with him fast. Tomorrow is a story of how friendship, love and courage can overcome great odds.
Synopsis per Deadline:
The original telepic sees a defenseless Los Angeles under attack by a swarm of — wait for it — giant lava-breathing tarantulas that roast their quarry alive! Adding to the mayhem is a reunion of three key cast members from the Police Academy canon: Steve Guttenberg — starring as a washed-up ’90s action hero who must save us — Leslie Easterbrook and Michael Winslow. Can they save the City of Angels from the eight-legged volcano spawn?? Nia Peeples co-stars in the movie, which has begun production for a summer 2015 premiere. Lavalantula certainly has some mega-arachnid cred behind the camera: It will be directed by Big Ass Spiders helmer Mike Mendez.
I imagine this is how the pitch for the film is going down at AFM:
Potential Buyer: How is this movie any different than Sharknado, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, or any of those schlocky pictures?
Seller: Our movie has Steve Guttenberg.
Potential Buyer: …Go on.
