A few new posters for some upcoming releases have landed online. Briefly:
- Snitch – The first poster for director Ric Roman Waugh’s action-thriller puts Dwayne Johnson’s DEA informant character front and center. The film opens on February 22nd.
- The Last Exorcism Part II – I’m not exactly sure how a film with “last” in the title can have a sequel, but the first poster for the horror follow-up has some twisty fun with teasing the number 2. The film opens on March 1st.
- Parker – The final poster for the Jason Statham-led actioner highlight’s Statham’s gun-handling abilities and Jennifer Lopez’s, um, behind. The film opens on January 25th.
- Monsters University – A playful Spanish poster for Pixar’s upcoming sequel promises “a monstrous summer.” The film opens in 3D on June 21st. [Update: Disney has asked us to remove the Monsters University poster because it was not cleared for online release.]
Hit the jump to check out the posters and synopses for the aforementioned films.
Here’s the official synopsis for Snitch:
Action superstar Dwayne Johnson headlines this fast-paced thriller as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a crime and is sentenced to 10 years in jail. In order to clear his son’s name, he dangerously goes undercover and risks everything, including his own life, to reduce his son’s sentence.
The ensemble cast includes Academy Awards Winner Susan Sarandon, Emmy Nominee Benjamin Bratt, and Golden Globe Nominee Barry Pepper.
Inspired by a true story, the screenplay was written by Justin Haythe (THE LONE RANGER, REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, THE CLEARING) and adapted by the film’s director Ric Roman Waugh.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Last Exorcism Part II:
Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can’t remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning.

Here’s the official synopsis for Parker:
Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead.
Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.
Here’s the official synopsis for Monsters University:
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
