Hopefully you’ve had your morning coffee and don’t plan on having a glass of wine for a while now because these new clips from The Sound and the Fury and The Riot Club might make you think twice about drinking either of them. James Franco’s latest is just days away from its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and has its Toronto International Film Festival screening coming up right after, so the team behind it has unveiled a clip from the film, teasing the intensity we’ve got coming. We’ve also got Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club making its way to Tiff for a world premiere. Even though Joey King and Scott Haze both look like they can get a little nasty in that piece from The Sound and the Fury, the Riot Club clip actually might be tougher to stomach.

If The Hunger Games franchise has decided on one thing, it’s to bombard the world with promotional material far beyond the efforts of just about anything in recent memory, and in case you haven’t had enough character posters, there is a new set of Rebel Warrior Posters. It’s all your favorite gun-toting warriors, and they are conveniently positioned in front of the Mockingjay emblem.
I find it hard to believe that you need any more enticement to check this one out, but you might as well have a look at The Hunger Games in warrior garb with a seriously black motif.
