Byzantium, On The Road, The Do-Deca-Pentathalon Elefante Blanco

A slew of posters for some highly anticipated releases have made their way to the net, so let’s break it down.

The sales poster for director Neil Jordan’s new offering uses one of his most popular films, “Interview with the Vampire,” to get buzz going. But the poster still gets the point across that Jordan is back with a cast boasting Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, and Caleb Landry Jones in his latest vampire venture with “Byzantium.” The story revolves around a mother (Arterton) who, when turned into a vampire, converts her own daughter (Ronan) into a bloodsucker as well, with the two going on to form a deadly pairing, occasionally posing as sisters. The duo arrive in a small British town and reveal who they are, causing a teenager dying of leukemia (Jones) to question his mortality and in turn, Ronan's character begins to wonder about her own immortality. Audiences will surely be sinking their teeth into this one when it drops later year.

Next, we get a pretty good look at “Control” actor Sam Riley (who is also in "Byzantium") as Sal Paradise in “The Motorcycle Diaries” helmer Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s landmark novel "On The Road." We’ll have to find out if the “Road is Life” when the film hits theaters (hopefully this year, no distributor is signed on just yet) with a cast that includes Kristen Stewart, Garret Hedlund, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Terrence Howard, and many more. Expect it in the Cannes Film Festival lineup tomorrow.

Third in line is the poster for Mark and Jay Duplass’ long-shelved film “The Do-Deca-Penthalon,” which is set to hit theaters on July 6th. The film stars Mark Kelly and Steve Zissis as two brothers who secretly competed in their very own Olympics as kids, and now they look to carry it on in their adulthood, and the poster's handmade quality is a welcome throwback to the days of the Duplass Brothers' early films like “The Puffy Chair.”

Finally, while we were speculating that “Carancho” director Pablo Trapero’s “Elefante Blanco” might make the cut for this year’s Cannes, perhaps there’s a little more hope in that respect now as a poster for the film has hit the web. We haven’t heard too much about this film that centers on two priests who survive an attack in Central America and team with a woman, Luciana, to fight corruption. Set to release in Spain on May 25th, it could very well end up in the lineup when Cannes unveils their slate tomorrow. [Facebook/Facebook/Vulture/NicoFilmosphere]
