Two new posters have been unveiled for features on opposites ends of our anticipation scale in Julia Leigh's erotic thriller "Sleeping Beauty" and Roland Emmerich's period conspiracy drama "Anonymous."

First up is the French poster for Leigh's film, which is based on her own 2008 Black Listed script originally described as "a haunting erotic fairy tale about a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who sleeps, drugged, in a 'Sleeping Beauty chamber' while men do to her what she can‘t remember the next morning." Rising thesp Mia Wasikowska was actually set to star in the lead role before she was replaced by Emily Browning due to scheduling conflicts. Mirrah Foulkes, Michael Dorman, Sarak Snook, Rachel Blake and Hugh Keays-Byrne co-star in the pic, which will debut in competition at the Croisette later this month.

Emmerich's film, meanwhile, looks to be the master-of-disaster's take on the English period drama genre with a slice of conspiracy. He's actually managed to conjure up a decent cast which includes Edward Hogg, David Thewlis, Vanessa Redgrave, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson, Xavier Samuel and Rafe Spall but the story which posits that the great playwright, William Shakespeare, didn't write all those works himself sounds like an excuse for a some decent action. A trailer was recently unveiled and seemingly confirms most of our suspicions. [RecentMoviePosters]
