New images have been released from Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot.  The film stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth and follows the true story of the West Memphis 3 case, in which three teenagers were wrongfully charged with murdering three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas in the 1990s.  The new images provide a first look at Firth, who plays Ron Lax, a private investigator hired to look into the case.  Devil’s Knot will be making its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it will be one of the higher-profile pictures due to the Oscar-winning lead actors and the subject matter.  Adam doesn’t believe that the picture will be entering this year’s crowded awards field, and unless it breaks out big at TIFF, I agree with him.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Dane DeHaan, Mireille Enos, Bruce Greenwood, Elias Koteas, Stephen Moyer, Alessandro Nivola, and Amy RyanDevil’s Knot will make its public debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday, September 8th.
