The 56th BFI London Film Festival kicks off October 10th and runs through October 21st. Like any good festival, this means a panoply of new marketing materials, in this case in the form of pictures. First up is a new pic from "Wish You Were Here" featuring Aussie stars Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer. Directed by Edgerton's fellow Blue Tongue Films cohort Kieran Darcy-Smith, the film, which debuted at Sundance earlier this year, also co-stars Felicity Price and Antony Starr.

The Sapphires

They’re sexy, black, young, talented, and have never set foot outside of Australia. Until, in the chaos of 1968, they're plucked from the obscurity of a remote Aboriginal mission, branded as the Aboriginal answer to The Supremes — getting the chance of a lifetime — and are shipped off to Vietnam to entertain the troops. Starring Chris O'Dowd, Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell, The Weinstein Company is hoping "The Sapphires" is this year's crowd-pleasing answer to "The Artist."

While our Cannes review suggests it's not quite as good (or Oscar-worthy) as we may be led to believe, the picture should still entertain when it hits theaters later this year.
