More publicity materials from films scheduled to make their debuts at Sundance 2012 next month; both I've already profiled.

No trailers or clips for each film yet, but these still images will have to do in the meantime. 

The image above is from Sheldon Candis' LUV, and in it are stars of the film, Common and Michael Rainey Jr.

The film's official synopsis reads:

An orphaned 11-year-old boy is forced to face the unpleasant truth about his beloved uncle during one harrowing day in the streets of Baltimore. 

Dennis Haysbert, Danny Glover, and Charles S. Dutton also co-star.

And, as for the images below... we've already seen a few from from Ava DuVernay's Middle Of Nowhere, posted a few months back here on S&A. The 2 stills below are new to me.

And, by the way, its official synopsis (which we already told you before) reads:

When her husband is incarcerated, an African-American woman struggles to maintain her marriage and her identity.

Cast includes Emayatzy Corinealdi, David Oyelowo, Omari Hardwick, Lorraine Touissaint, and Edwina Findley.
