CinemaCon begins on Monday in Las Vegas, but Steve is already in Sin City snapping photos of some cool promo posters, standees, and banners. For those unaware, CinemaCon is a convention put on for all the major theater owners in order to get a look at what the studios have to offer for the rest of the year; it’s basically Comic-Con for theater owners. Steve came across the first poster for Martin McDonagh’s (In Bruges) dark comedy Seven Psychopaths and the second poster for Bradley Cooper-fronted drama The Words. Here’s the first poster if you missed it. The promo poster for the latter rightly highlights the outstanding ensemble cast.
Hit the jump to check out the posters, and be sure to check back over the next few days for all our coverage from CinemaCon 2012. The Words is set for release on September 21st and Seven Psychopaths opens on November 2nd.
UPDATE: We’ve come across a Seven Psychopaths promo banner. It’s been added after the jump.

Here’s the synopsis for Seven Psychopaths:
From Oscar-winning writer and director Martin McDonagh comes a star-studded, blood-drenched, black comedy. Marty (Colin Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay Seven Psychopaths. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration.
Billy (Sam Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary.
Hans (Christopher Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie’s unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.

Here’s a synopsis for The Words:
Rory Jansen, a struggling writer, aspires to be the next great literary voice. When he discovers a lost manuscript in a weathered attaché case, he realizes he possesses something extraordinary that he desperately wishes he had created. Rory decides to pass the work off as his own and finally receives the recognition he desperately craves. However, he soon learns that living with his choice will not be as easy as he thought as he faces a moral dilemma that will make him take a hard look at the man he has become.
In their directorial debut, Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal have crafted a subtle tale that examines how overwhelming desire can lead to unforeseen and unwanted consequences. Bolstered by a strong cast, led by Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons, The Words adeptly assembles multiple narratives that reveal how one man’s lost legacy holds the life of another man captive.
