Oh, Yes We Cannes: Festival Announces Lineup!

Posted by Max Lalanne on April 19, 2012

See what I did there? I broke the trend of about every major film blog today by not pasting a huge photo of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart when writing about Cannes’ recently announced, star-studded festival lineup. Instead, here’s some good ol’ Marilyn!

But Pattinson and Stewart probably are heading to the Croisette this year – who knows, maybe together? – seeing as their respective films, David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis and Walter Salles’ On the Road, are part of the official selection. Along with the opening movie, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, they are joined by Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy, Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly, John Hillcoat’s Lawless, and Jeff Nichols’ Mud, to name just a few.

Which means, if everything turns out well – Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, and Jessica Chastain, among other celebrated actors, could be walking down the red carpet this May. Yes, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart too.

Oh my, all that glitz!
