Rebecca Thomas' Electrick Children comes out next Friday, but there's just time for a last-minute illustrated poster, courtesy of artist Sam Gilbey. And we have it here to give you an exclusive look!

The film stars Julia Garner as Rachel, a young girl from a fundamentalist Mormon community who discovers a forbidden cassette tape of rock music on her 15th birthday. She's never heard anything like it and it blows her away. But three months later she's pregnant: she tells her parents it's an immaculate conception caused by the music, but for some reason they don't buy that, and she flees to Vegas in search of the rocker responsible instead of accepting an arranged marriage.

Electrick Children also stars Rory Culkin, Liam Aiken and Billy Zane, and is out on July 13. If you want to know more about Gilbey, by the by, check out his website here. He's worked with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, so you know he's good.

Poorly painted and terrible composition, but at least it's better than another Photoshop hack job! More
