EXCLUSIVE: Movieline Premieres the Poster For Kristen Stewart's Welcome to the Rileys

The good folks at Samuel Goldwyn Films have sent over the first poster for Welcome to the Rileys, director Jake Scott's feature debut sophomore effort starring James Gandolfini, Melissa Leo and, in a racy, much-buzzed-about role, Kristen Stewart. Forget Bella -- meet Mallory.

Rileys features Gandolfini and Leo as a married couple ravaged by the death of their teenaged daughter. Worn down by her agoraphobia, he splits to New Orleans, where his platonic encounter with a young runaway and prostitute (Stewart) prompts each to finally pursue their respective shots at recovery and redemption. Back at the film's Sundance premiere, Movieline singled out Stewart's performance in particular as one to watch: "[A]s the foul-mouthed, filthy-minded teen with the gnarly complexion at the center of the story," Seth Abramovitch wrote, "she gives another effective, rough-edged performance -- while going a long way towards coloring in some of those libidinous lines left void by the ever-chaste Bella [Swan]."

Stewart is central to the film's poster as well -- literally. Have a look, and check Welcome to the Rileys out when it opens Oct. 29. [Click imagefor bigger.]

    Wait a minute... you mean to tell me that she will play ANOTHER prostitute? Wasn't her whoring herself to the Toilet movies bad enough? Will wonders never cease? Please? Especially her "work."

    This is the first role where she is a prostitute, i don't see where you get the others; but whatever. Saw this movie in berlin; It's sometime slow but good perf from Melissa and kris. James accent was sometimes bizare.
