Some new posters have landed so we're gonna skip the preamble and just get to it. Want a poster for your wall that both reflects your taste in classic horror flicks, but still lets people know you're hip to contemporary cinema? The beautiful retro poster for "We Need To Talk About Kevin" should do the trick. What better way to advertise a movie about a demon spawn child than to riff on the one sheet for "Rosemary's Baby." Great work unknown graphic designer! It's also a great way to get people talking about 'Talk About Kevin' again, a triumphant return by Lynne Ramsay, featuring great turns by Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller, in a film that will leave you unsettled for days afterward. It's in theaters now.

Moving in a totally different direction, the first poster for the Duplass Brothers' "Jeff Who Lives At Home" is here. Starring Jason Segel and Ed Helms, the story centers on two brothers — one who is going through a mid-life crisis (Helms) and believes his wife (Judy Greer) is having an affair, and the other a lovable loser pothead (Segel) still living with his mom (Susan Sarandon). As they set out to spy on the wife, a journey unfolds with all sorts of unintended consequences. The film premiered at TIFF last fall and we called it the best film yet from the directing pair. It lands on March 16th, so a trailer soon?

Jason Statham sure has a big....gun. We sort of forgot about this movie, but yet another rote actioner is on the way from everyone's favorite hooligan, this time titled "Safe." As the poster suggests, this movie will probably be interchangeable with every other shoot 'em up, head crackin' effort from the actor, but at least he's doing what he knows best and is aware of his limitations. In this movie he has to protect a little girl from...does it even matter? Anyway, it opens on April 27th.

Finally, a new glossy poster has landed for "The Flowers Of War," China's foreign film Oscar hopeful that didn't make the shortlist. Christian Bale stars as an American who disguises himself as a priest named John and shelters prostitutes and students at an all-girls school during the 1937 Nanjing Massacre. Zhang Yimou directs the film, and you can see what all the buzz was about when it opens this weekend. [Recent Movie Posters/SlashFilm/Collider]
