Following the new trailer, ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at the poster for War of the Buttons, which The Weinstein Company will release in theaters on July 18.

Set in occupied WWII France, the film tells the tale of pre-teen rebel Lebrac (newcomer Jean Texier) and the "war" he leads between two rival kid gangs from neighboring villages. Once Lebrac falls for Violette (Ilona Bachelier), a young Jewish girl who is new in town and in danger of being exposed by the Nazis, the children are faced with putting their own conflicts aside to protect her and confront the very real war happening around them.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Christophe Barratier (Les Chorus), War of the Buttons features model/actress Laetitia Casta (Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, Arbitrage), actor/filmmaker Guillaume Canet (Farewell, Tell No One) and Welcome to the Sticks star Kad Merad. The film is produced and co-written by Thomas Langmann (Academy Award winner for The Artist).
