In addition to the announcement of the competition film slate for 2009, the Sundance Film Festival also provided us with a bunch of images from some of the films that will be featured. So over the course of the next few days we are going to show off some of these films with first look photos, never seen before anywhere (at least, never seen before here). We will start with three of the higher profile films in competition, all of which feature some bigger names.
