We’re bringing you the first images from films premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and today we’ve got two films that will have their out-of-competition premieres at the festival: Win Win and Salvation Boulevard. Win Win features Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, and Jeffrey Tambor. The film comes from writer/director Tom McCarthy (The Visitor), and centers on an attorney (Giamatti) moonlighting as a high school wrestling instructor who stumbles upon a star athlete with a mother fresh out of rehab.
Salvation Boulevard is a comedy starring Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei, and Jim Gaffigan. The flick centers on the head of a mega-church (Brosnan) who frames an ex-hippie for a crime he didn’t commit. Hit the jump to check out images and a brief synopsis for both films. The 2011 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 20 – 30th.
