A few new posters have landed online.  Briefly:

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier – A nostalgia-tinged IMAX poster for the Marvel sequel might be the best one yet.  The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson and opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on April 4th.
  • Only Lovers Left Alive – The U.S. poster for director Jim Jarmusch’ vampire romance puts stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton front and center.  The film opens stateside April 11th.
  • Walk of Shame – A new poster for the Elizabeth Banks comedy conveys the precarious situation that Banks’ character finds herself in, as she must trek across Los Angeles to make it to a career-changing interview.  The film also stars James Marsden and Gillian Jacobs and opens May 2nd.
  • Life Itself – The first poster for director Steve James’ (Hoop Dreams) documentary about beloved film critic Roger Ebert is simple yet evocative.  Click here to read my review from Sundance.  The film opens this summer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: The Winter Soldier:

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.

Here’s the official synopsis for Walk of Shame:

After losing an audition for her dream job, an aspiring Los Angeles TV news anchor goes out for an uncharacteristic night of partying. She awakes in a stranger’s bed to a phone message from her agent telling her the job is hers, if she can make it across town by 5 pm. Stranded in an unknown area without money, a phone, and a car, she embarks on a series of misadventures as she races to the most important job interview of her life.

Here’s the official synopsis for Life Itself:

Roger Ebert was a beloved national figure and arguably our best-known and most influential movie critic, and his passing in 2013 was deeply felt across the country. Based on his memoir of the same name, LIFE ITSELF recounts his fascinating and flawed journey—from politicized school newspaperman, to Chicago Sun-Times movie critic, to Pulitzer Prize winner, to television household name, to the miracle of finding love at 50, and finally his “third act” as a major voice on the Internet when he could no longer physically speak.
