Cinematical has received three brand new, exclusive images from Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to a tremendous amount of buzz. (I've heard there also may be one or two sexy steamy scenes thrown in for a little extra spice.) Starring Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz and Rebecca Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona (or "VCB" as it's known in the hipster circles) revolves around two American tourists (Johannson and Hall) who, while traveling through Barcelona for the summer, soon find themselves swept up in several unconventional romantic entanglements with Juan Antonio (Bardem), a charismatic stud. Things become even more complicated when Antonio's ex-wife (Cruz) -- a complete lunatic -- arrives on the scene.

In her review from Cannes, Kim claimed that "Allen has succeeded in making an excellent film; Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a lovely gift from a filmmaker who, when he's on his game, truly hits the mark." You can see all three new images in the gallery below (first three), as well as the rest that have been released thus far. Vicky Cristina Barcelonawoos its way into theaters on August 29.
