We’ve got a few new posters to debut today. First up is a fantastic new poster for the drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. The film stars Tilda Swinton as a mother dealing with her son’s unforgivable and violent act. This poster is gloriously chilling, as it evokes the horror films of the 60s and 70s (especially Rosemary’s Baby) to perfectly encapsulate the pure evil that is Kevin. The film is extraordinary and I highly suggest you check it out when it opens on January 27th.
We’ve also got posters for Jennifer Westfeldt’s dramedy Friends with Kids and the new Bobcat Goldthwait pic God Bless America. Friends with Kids features an all-star cast that includes Adam Scott, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Megan Fox, and opens on March 9th. Goldthwait’s dark comedy God Bless America opens May 11th and will be available VOD on April 6th. Hit the jump to see the posters.

Here’s the synopsis for We Need to Talk about Kevin:
A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay’s WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN explores the factious relationship between a mother and her evil son. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 15 years with the increasing malevolence of her first-born child, Kevin (Ezra Miller). Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN explores nature vs. nurture on a whole new level as Eva’s own culpability is measured against Kevin’s innate evilness. Ramsay’s masterful storytelling simultaneously combines a provocative moral ambiguity with a satisfying and compelling narrative, which builds to a chilling, unforgettable climax.

Friends With Kids is a daring and poignant ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes. The last two singles in the group observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and wonder if there’s a better way. They decide to have a kid together – and date other people.
There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional ‘experiment’ leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.
Here’s the synopsis for God Bless America:
Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.
