Photo Bomb!

Thanks for checking out the latest edition of Photo Bomb!, your weekly roundup of all movie-related photos and posters floating around the internet.

Tons of a great content this week (thanks much in part to the Toronto Film Festival happening this month), so let's get right to it. For the photos section we have new content from the films "The Bourne Legacy", "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", "The Wolverine", "Everybody Has A Plan", "At Any Price", "Anna Karenina", "Argo", "The Company You Keep", "Silver Linings Playbook", "Looper", "The Place Beyond the Pines", "Machete Kills", "The Ice Man", "Imogene", "A Late Quartet", "Writers", and "Cloud Atlas".

And we feature new posters for films "Cloud Atlas", "Machete Kills", "Me and My Shadow", "Life of Pi", "Lawless", "About Cherry", and "Taken 2". Not a ton of movie posters this week, but the stills more than make up for it.

Hit the jump for everything listed above!

We start with a few photos from "The Bourne Legacy". The film stars Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, and Edward Norton. We've seen a few different trailers for the film now, but there's nothing wrong with a handful of nice, clean hi-res images. (Collider)











Next are some of the first stills from Peter Jackson's first film from this pair of films trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey". We'll get our first crack at this new story December 14, 2012. (E! Online)



In what aren't nearly as exciting as you might have hoped for, nonetheless, here are the first images from the set of "The Wolverine". The film will again star Hugh Jackman in the title role, and will get its direction from James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma", "Walk the Line"). It hits theaters July 26, 2013. (ComicBookMovie)







Here are some shots for the upcoming "Everybody Has A Plan", which stars Viggo Mortensen. The film revolves around a man (Mortensen) taking over the life of his twin brother after he dies. The film is debuting at the Toronto International Film Festival this month. (TIFF)





If you were looking for a film based around the world of competitive agriculture, then this is your movie. "At Any Price" stars Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron as father and son, with the dad wanting his son to take over the family business; the son wants to be a race car driver. (TIFF)



Collider must have taken a page out of the Slackers Selection Movie Blog book, as the next three films are featured in one single post from them. They think they're really doing something with their three films in one post over there. ha! Anyway, these first are few new ones from "Anna Karenina", starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law. Nothing more than pretty basic costume-drama shots here. (Collider)




Next on the list are a few from "Argo". I'm really looking forward to this film, which is directed by Ben Affleck. Along with Affleck, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman will also star. You can check the trailer for the film out here. It hits theaters October 12, 2012. (Collider)




We round-out this block with the first shots from Robert Redford's latest film, "The Company You Keep". Along with also starring in the film, the film compiles one of the best casts I've ever seen with Susan Sarandon, Shia LaBeouf, Sam Elliot, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Terrence Howard, Chris Cooper, and Steven Root. (Collider)






Here's an early shot for the upcoming "Silver Linings Playbook". In the photo are the two stars of the film, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. David O. Russell ("The Fighter") directs, while Robert De Niro and Julia Stiles also appear. (HeyUGuys)


"Looper" continues to be one of the films I'm most looking forward to this fall, and these photos don't do anything to hurt that. This time traveling sci-fi/action film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. It will be in theaters September 28, 2012. (WeLoveEveryone)




This photo features our first look at Ryan Gosling in "The Place Beyond the Pines". The plot seems a little too similar to "Drive" for me, but I guess if that's what he wants to do; he was great in "Drive" anyway. This is the first I've seen from this film, but it's set to release November 7, 2012. (Total Film)


Hey, do you guys remember the Spy Kids movies that Robert Rodriguez directed years back? Well, for his new film, "Machete Kills", he's borrowing his lead female, Alexa Vega, from that series for a supporting role this time around. This set photo is "unofficial", but is still pretty fantastic. First, he're a picture of her in "Spy Kids" (2001); the following shot is what was taken on the set. She has aged well. (Instagram)



We jump next to our first look at Michael Shannon in this crime thriller, "The Iceman". The film is based on the real-life story of Richard Kuklinski, who is believed to have killed more than 250 people in his life. The film will also star Chris Evans and James Franco. (Beyond Hollywood)


Here are our first stills from the set of the comedy "Imogene", starring Kristin Wiig. I really love Wiig and think she's very funny. Not sure if this will have "Bridesmaids" success, but we shall see. Along with many other titles listed in this week's post, the film debuts at TIFF this month; no firm U.S. release is set as of yet. (Vulture)




The plot for "A Late Quartet" seems kind of boring on the surface, but I actually think I'll like this film quite a bit. And I love the idea of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken as members of a string quartet. If it's any good, it seems like something that could elicit Oscar chatter. (AceShowbiz)




"Writers" also makes its way to Toronto this month. Looks a lot like the type of dramedy that is one of my favorite film genres. Cast is pretty strong too. Greg Kinnear stars, along with two of my favorites, Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell. Again, no official release date as of yet. (NC Hollywood)






And we finish off the Photos section with our first stills from the highly-ambitious "Cloud Atlas". The collaborative project puts The Wachowski siblings ("The Matrix") and Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run") in the writer and directors' chairs. The film revolves around multiple personal storylines in the past, present and future, and, as you can see in the photos, is pretty stylized. This one releases October 26, 2012. (Entertainment Weekly)





















As is the case so often, we start off the Movie Posters section with the film listed just before. Here's the first poster for the film. (Apple)


Here's a character poster just released for "Machete Kills", featuring Lady Gaga. I'm not sure I dig Gaga being in the film, but Rodriguez sure is compiling an impressive group of women for the film. I want to know when we're going to get posters like this for the other characters. (Twitter)


"Me and My Shadow" is a future Dreamworks animated feature, mixing 2D and 3D animation. It seems like a cool idea, and I'll be interested to see some actual footage from this one. It doesn't get its release until 2014, so it could still be a while. (ComingSoon)


This is the newest poster for the Ang Lee film, "Life of Pi". I still don't get this film, but visually it at least looks very impressive. This one comes out in November, so we don't have much longer before we get to figure out what this one is all about. (The Playlist)


Next we have "About Cherry". I'm not sure about this one yet, but it has a decent cast - James Franco, Heather Graham, Dev Patel - and it's getting pretty positive feedback amongst the indie community. It will be available for VOD in August and hit theaters in September. (IFC Films)


We hit the homestretch with two international posters. This first is for "Lawless". Nothing a whole lot different in the imagery than what we've already seen, but I still like it. The cast is impressive, and I think the storyline is interesting. With a release date of August 29, 2012, we don't have much long to wait for this one. (FilmFilia)


And our final poster this week is another international, this time for "Taken 2". On one hand, I'm really not a fan of this poster because it just looks like a bad 90's action movie. But on the other, I really love it, because it just looks like a bad 90's action movie! The film gets its release October 5, 2012. (ComingSoon)


And to put a nice little cherry on top of this cake (do people put cherries on cakes?), how about an officially approved map of Gotham City, as seen in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. It's hard to get the image much bigger, but if you hop over to Amazon, you can buy Brandon T. Snider's book, The Dark Knight Manuel, which includes the photo as well as tons of other great content.
