With Cannes past its midpoint, a major guessing game on the Croisette is: What’s going to Venice?

From the U.S. these include: J.C. Chandor’s thriller “A Most Violent Year,” with Alessandro Nivola and Jessica Chastain; David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” starring Ben Affleck; Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman,” from Fox Searchlight; and David Gordon Green’s “Manglehorn,” in which Al Pacino plays an ex-con.

Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” is also a possibility for a Lido launch, »
