New posters have been unveiled for two upcoming releases due out this summer: Ruben Flesicher's action-comedy "30 Minutes Or Less" and Tate Taylor's period drama "The Help."
Fleischer's film, his follow up to the sleeper hit "Zombieland," reunites him with the now Oscar-nominated leading man Jesse Eisenberg who'll team up with Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Michael Peña for the story of white trash fledgling criminals (McBride and his lapdog lieutenant Swardson) who kidnap a slacker pizza delivery driver (Eisenberg) and force him — by ticking bomb — to rob a bank. The red-band trailer was released only last week and promises quite the riotous affair. And the most shocking part? It's based on a true story.

Our second poster is from Tate Taylor's "The Help" which features a stellar estrogen-dominant cast including Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney, Sissy Spacek, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, David Oyelowo and Mike Vogel. The Southern integration drama is based on a best-selling novel by Katheryn Stockett and follows a recent college graduate in the 1960s (Stone) who decides to write a book highlighting the plight of African-American domestic help in Mississippi. Ten-time Oscar-nominated and multiple Grammy-winning composer Thomas Newman will be scoring the film, which saw a trailer recently unveiled.
"The Help" hits theaters on August 12th as well. [Dreamworks]
