With the announcement of 75 new titles added to Toronto 2013's lineup, a few new first-look images have arrived as well. Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche star in Fred Schepisi's "Words and Pictures" as frustrated artists and teachers; the ever-prolific James Franco's "Child of God" stars Franco, Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson and Jim Parrack in the Cormac McCarthy adaptation. 

Here are the official TIFF synopses for the films:

Words and Pictures Fred Schepisi, USA World Premiere A writer (Clive Owen) whose talent has dried up and an artist (Juliette Binoche) struggling to paint, clash at the school where they teach, sparking both an unlikely romance and a school-wide war: which is more powerful, the word or the picture?

Child of God James Franco, USA North American Premiere Set in mountainous Sevier County, Tennessee in the 1960s, Child of God tells the story of Lester Ballard, a dispossessed, violent man whom the narrator describes as “a child of God much like yourself perhaps.” Ballard’s life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Deprived of both his parents and a home, and with few other ties, Ballard descends to the level of a cave dweller, falling deeper into crime and degradation. Starring James Franco, Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson and Jim Parrack.
