After winning rave reviews at this year’s Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals, Sean Durkin’s Martha Marcy May Marlene is gearing up for an October 21st release in the States with clever marketing posters, but we’re slowly beginning to receive new posters and trailers, ready for an international marketing push later in the year.

Starring possibly the break out star of 2011 Elizabeth Olsen, here are three more new clips and another new international poster for the film (via IMPA), featuring Olsen as Martha/Marcy May/Marlene, a young woman attempting to re-assimilate back into normal society after fleeing from a cult. With Oscar nominated John Hawkes as the creepy cult leader, and Sarah Paulson and Hugh Dancy as Olsen’s sister and brother-in-law who take her in, the festival hit is showing at TIFF this week, and will première in the UK this October at London Film Festival.

A full size poster can be found by clicking the above image, and three new clips below the cut, which show Martha/Marcy May/Marlene with a new friend in the cult; on the phone after presumably escaping; and with hersister, coming to terms with their relationship.
