With the Cannes Film Festival officially kicking off today, there is plenty of big, bold movie marketing to be found.  For those of you who couldn’t make it to France (including me), we thought we’d bring you some of the sights.  Our international correspondent Magdalena (who you can follow on twitter) has been busy snapping some shots of promotional material at the festival.  We already brought you the first iteration here, but now we have some more goodies to check out.  They include shots of Spring Breakers, Dracula 3D, Brian De Palma’s Passion and Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler. Hit the jump to check them out.

First up is the crowd-pleaser, Spring Breakers. If you haven’t seen our numerous posts of images of Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and James Franco from the set, this poster should give you a general idea of what you can expect from director Harmony Korine’s latest project (I particularly like the unrelated PMS van in the foreground:

Next we have De Palma’s Passion, starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams. We previously posted the first image from the film along with a disturbing batch of follow-up images.  Enjoy the poster for Passion below the synopsis:

An erotic thriller in the tradition of “Dressed To Kill” and “Basic Instinct”, Brian de Palma’s PASSION tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé Isabelle is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…

Next up is a curiously titled White House Taken, otherwise known stateside as Olympus Has Fallen. One of the two Die Hard in the White House” projects of the year, Olympus Has Fallen is directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Gerard Butler.  This poster exponentially confuses the two since the Roland Emmerich-directed picture is titled, White House Down. Take a look at the Cannes poster below:

Finally, here’s a poster from the Dario Argento-directed Dracula 3D, starring Asia Argento and Rutger Hauer, the first images of which we posted last year.  Check out the poster below:
