I don’t remember the last time I posted this many image articles in a single day. This is number five and it’s got new images from Roman Polanski’s Carnage and Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna. The Carnage images are just stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet doing dramatic stare downs at each other and even at the camera. Carnage—which only runs 79 minutes since it plays out in real time—focuses on two sets of parents who come together to settle a schoolyard fight between their kids. As for Trishna, the movie is based on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles but set against an Indian backdrop. I’m sure star Freida Pinto will have more to work with than she did in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Carnage opens this December and will play at the Venice and New York Film Festivals. Trishna will play at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Here’s the synopsis for Carnage:
A showdown between two kids: about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth… Now the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort if out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.
Here’s the synopsis for Trishna:
Starring Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Riz Ahmed (Centurion) and based on Thomas Hardy’s novel Tess of the d’Urbervilles, the film is set in contemporary India and tells the tragic love story between the son of a wealthy property developer and the daughter of a rickshaw driver.
