With the Sundance Film Festival in full swing, our team of writers are on the ground hustling from screening to screening, trying to find time to write in between and then eventually sleep. If they're lucky, they'll manage to get a meal in somewhere. For us back at home, we're continuing to look at the promo material to get a sense of what's unspooling, and a few more images have arrived today to help that out.

With the Sundance Film Festival in full swing, our team of writers are on the ground hustling from screening to screening, trying to find time to write in between and then eventually sleep. If they're lucky, they'll manage to get a meal in somewhere. For us back at home, we're continuing to look at the promo material to get a sense of what's unspooling, and a few more images have arrived today to help that out.

To kick it off, here's the first look at Patricia Arquette in Richard Linklater's highly anticipated "Boyhood." She joins Ethan Hawke in the film, playing the parents to newcomer Ellar Salmon, in the coming-of-age drama that will see the protagonist actually age before your eyes on the screen, with Linklater shooting portions of the film with the actors each year, over the course of a decade. Needless to say, this is one of the most anticipated movies in Park City.

Next, funny people Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig dial bit back a bit for the low key "The Skeleton Twins," which follows an estranged brother and sister reunited, and facing small challenges in their lives. "It’s a very sweet movie, but it’s not anything like an 'SNL' movie or the comedies we’ve been in. It’s not like a comedy-comedy," Hader told EW. "Especially the beginning of it. The first time I saw it, I brought some of my friends who didn’t know anything about it, and they were like, 'Oh yeah, pretty different.' "

Lastly, here's a new pic from Lynn Shelton's "Laggies." Keira Knightley and Chloë Grace Moretz star in the film that follows 28-year-old Megan (Knightley) who reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber).  When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to escape—at least temporarily—she hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika (Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell).

Keep your eyes tuned here for reviews of them all over the coming days.
