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.

A noir thriller told from the point of view of a femme fatale who falls for the detective in charge of a murder case, "I Anna" stars Charlotte Rampling, Gabriel Byrne, Hayley Atwell, Jodhi May and Eddie Marsan. Above is a new look at Bryne and Rampling in the film, much to the chagrin of Atwell fans everywhere.

Cate Shortland's "Lore" is a movie we greatly looked forward to after her auspicious and stunning debut "Somersault" (2004) which introduced most of the world to Abbie Cornish and Sam Worthington, then just solid Australian actors, but far from international household names. Here's the film's synopsis: After her Nazi parents are imprisoned, Lore leads her younger siblings across a war-torn Germany in 1945. Amidst the chaos, she encounters mysterious Jewish refugee Thomas, who shatters her fragile reality with hatred and desire. To live, she must trust someone she was taught to hate and face the darkness within herself.

Starring Saskia Rosendahl and Kai Malina, while our review from TIFF noted that the film fell a little short of (possibly high) expectations, it still suggests that Shortland is a filmmaker to keep tabs on.
