With Cannes now out of the way, three major festivals—Venice, Telluride and Toronto—are on the horizon, where even more new films will unspool for the first time. And one we're hoping/expecting to see is "Miss Julie" starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell. And today a batch of new images and a poster have dropped for the movie.

Liv Ullman directs her first film in over twelve years, adapting August Strindberg's acclaimed play, follows Julie and John who fall into an affair as passionate as it is savage, with their plans for escape to a new life together resulting in something tragic. Basically, it's great material in the hands of three people who can probably bring some fiery life to the tale.

No U.S. distributor for this one yet, but we're sure that'll be sorted out soon enough. [The Film Stage]

    Miss Julie is one the juiciest and most demanding roles for a young actress. Liv Ullmann is one of the finest film actors of all time. And Jessica is hitting the peak of her career. For that alone this is going to be worth watching.

    I see it's shot by Mikhail Krichman too - the Russian DP who shot The Return.

    Not usually a fan of period drama but this has got some serious talent behind it.

    Jeez! those pics look so posed and fake! expecially the one where they are kissing, it looks like awful CGI dolls! water and oil have more chemistry than Colin Farrell and Jessica Chastain! LOL
    Let me guess, this will be another movie where Jessica is miscast, bland, inexpressive and overshadowed by her supporting cast, but the critics will call it "the best performance ever" just because they chose her as their darling of the moment... so predictable! and Colin Farrell aka 'The Box Office Poison' and a terrible actor in a period piece? LOL not to mention that Liv Ullman is not a good director either and distributors are running away from this movie!
    Another flop in the way!

    Jessican Chastain directed by one of the greatest actresses in the history of the cinema.

    Y'know, I'm sure Ullman and Chastain and Farrell do great work here, but seriously, what is the point of a movie of Miss Julie? Surely whoever put money into this thing knows that despite its 'quality', it's bound to be a losing venture? It's a filmed Strindberg play! Or otherwise they know nothing about the film industry or cinema audiences.

    James, studios didn't care about this film! it doesn't have a distributor yet and it was filmed more than a year ago... so your comment about "gross profits" makes no sense!
    This movie probably is as bad as the last remake of Anna Karenina with Keira Knightley! but at least Keira is a box-office draw, but no one involved in this movie is! and you can see the lack of chemistry between the actors in the pics... imagine in the film!

    Studios care about gross profits. The quality of the material doesn't matter. This movie, given the pedigree of those involved, is likely to turn a profit.

    So, what's your point? That every movie must be superhero, action movie or rom-com because film industry makes money from them and audiences generally like that type of movies? Personally, I'm glad that movies explore more "artistic" themes, and this adaptation is promising stuff, at least for its performances.

    It looks like Liv Ullman expanded the story, which I think is a good sign. No matter how the movie turns out, I'm sure Jessica will be extraodinary in this role. Liv Ullmann was full of praise for Chastain, calling her performance "a miracle".
