Frances Ha
Shot in damn near-complete secrecy and announced to the world as part of last year’s TIFF line-up, Noah Baumbach’s newest film “Frances Ha” hits theaters later this year and a new poster and clip have arrived online.

First up, via EW, is a real short clip featuring Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote the film, as the titular character, “a 27-year-old aspiring dancer in Brooklyn whose life has failed to take off since graduating from Vassar.” The clip is under thirty seconds and gives a quick taste of the low-key charms -- and black-and-white cinematography courtesy of Sam Levy -- of the film. Our Telluride review called the film “one of Baumbach’s most accessible and joyous works” and “more like a spontaneous mumblecore picture, but with an exuberant dash of whimsy and fancifulness not seen in either [Baumbach or Gerwig] of their previous pictures.”

A new poster has also been released, which takes a previously released still from the film and turns it pink. It’s a simple, yet striking image for the comedy. “Frances Ha” dances into theatres in limited release on May 17th.

    What an awful poster. Just a mediocre production still (that's been out for months) with a stupid, unrepresentative filter added.

    Previous posters for Baumbach movies are so much better.

    gee thor you sound like either a spurned designer or spurned distributor (or perhaps a spurned lover?)

    Had the pleasure of seeing this on NYFF`12, and it was my favorite picture from the whole festival!

    The poster was presented in my favorite color. Dark pink, anyway I would love to see Frances Ha!
