Two Eerie New Trailers & Posters for 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Hit
"Martha… What happened to you?!" Since everyone is having trouble remembering the full title of Sean Durkin's Martha Marcy May Marlene, Fox Searchlight needs creative marketing to keep it on people's minds. Today they've launched via Twitter two new trailers accessible through QR codes (watch below) for the cult indie thriller that took Sundance by storm, starring Elizabeth Olsen and John Hawkes. The first official teaser trailer was unveiled in May, but these new trailers are shorter and so much better. EW.com also posted the two official QR code posters, that I've added the very bottom as well. You need to see these!

Martha Marcy May Marlene stars newcomer Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a damaged woman haunted by her memories and increasing paranoia, who struggles to reassimilate with her family after fleeing a cult.
Martha Marcy May Marlene is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Sean Durkin, of only a couple of shorts previously. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where Sean won the Dramatic Directing Award. Fox Searchlight picked this up during the fest and will be releasing Martha Marcy May Marlene in limited theaters beginning October 21st later this fall. Visit the official website. Thoughts?
