This year the Grégoire Melin’s Kinology can do no wrong – they nabbed the best real-estate on the Croisette and reminded us that Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers will surely be much talked about upon release and they’re sprinkled out a little bit everywhere else on the Croisette from the Main Comp with Cosmopolis, the Directors’ Fortnight with opening film from Gondry (The We and the I) and a Special Screening status in the Critics’ Week for Alice Winocour’s debut, Augustine (see pic of actress Soko above). Here is the other European titles they have in store.

It's no secret that big screen beauty Scarlett Johansson has a musical side (don't they all?), which she's proved by working with Pete Yorn, Jesus and Mary Chain, TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek and others.

"Mexico City. 2002, 2006, 2010. A cop. A hostage. A wife. Corruption, violence, vengeance. Three destinies, during 30 days, during three Soccer World Cups. Three ways to fight in order to survive." This is the synopsis of "Days Of Grace." Starring Eva Longoria, Carlos Bardem (Javier's brother), Miguel Rodarte and Paulina Gaitan, while writer/Director Everardo Gout's first feature doesn't have a U.S. release date yet (it screened out of competition at Cannes last year), it does have a rather interesting soundtrack worth noting and maybe that'll give it extra attention.
Out digitally April 3rd via Lakeshore Records, the soundtrack includes Massive Attack's Robert "3D" Del Naja featuring the one and only sultry-voiced Scarlett Johannsson, (presumably a remix of her "Summertime" George Gerswhin song that she performed on the Unexpected Dreams – Songs From the Stars compilation).
