Since it stars our collective boyfriend Clive Owen, Cinematical would be excited about The Children of Men pretty much no matter what we heard about it. But, given that Owen's costars include Michael Caine, Julianne Moore, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and that the film is being directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who also wrote the screenplay (based on the P.D. James novel), it's sounding pretty good. Throw in a crazy, sci-fi plot involving a future full of spermless men and a mysterious pregnancy, and you've got a movie that's got a chance to kick a whole lot of ass no matter who's in it.

Sadly, since the film began shooting in September, updates have been few and far between. Now, though, Universal has thrown us a bone with the first two official pics from the movie - though there's nothing in them that's mindblowing, one does offer a tantalizing glimpse at the world in which the film is set. Let's see: a weird, wooden structureand guys in casual clothes, hanging out with guns and wearing masks? Yep, I'm still excited.

The movie, currently in post-production, is due for release in September.
