Over the years, numerous films that have made their premiere at the festival have gone on to critical acclaim and awards, including Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, Dancer In The Dark, and The Tree Of Life.Over the years, this had led to the announcement of which films will be screening at the festival to become important on its own, as many film fans around the world are curious to know which filmmakers will choose to make their premieres at the festival.

Steve Carell mentors Channing Tatum in this new image from Foxcatcher

21 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I.ve been not so patiently awaiting Bennett Miller.s Foxcatcher. What dragged me in? Aside from Miller? Was it Channing Tatum? No. You want to think that. It was actually another turn to drama for Steve Carell that hooked me. I think he can certainly step out away from his comedic roots to make a role like this one believable. I.m sure people though that Jim Carrey wouldn.t make the jump so well, but I think that The Truman Show disproved that theory. All that said, I.m rooting for Carell. »

Foxcatcher will debut at Cannes and might be on a collision course with Oscar

22 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

About a month ago, I wrote a piece here that speculated on some of the Academy Award hopefuls that might be debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, the lineup for Cannes has been announced (at least the preliminary list of titles…look for some movies to be added in the coming weeks), and while a few flicks I mentioned in that article like The Homesman, How to Catch a Monster, and Maps to the Stars are set to unspool in France, the film that probably is the most anticipated, especially in terms of awards potential, is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. In fact, I’ve listed it as a Best Picture frontrunner in my Oscar predictions, if you haven’t already noticed. In case you’re not up to speed on this movie, it’s obviously directed by Miller based on a script from Dan Futterman and based on a true story. »

Cannes: Looking Past the Hype and Hate (Analysis)

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes.” Hou Hsiao Hsien’s “The Assassin.” Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys.” Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman.”

The list of films and filmmakers once rumored to be hot prospects for the Cannes Film Festival, only to be go unmentioned during this morning’s official selection announcement, is, as usual, a long and tantalizing one — so tantalizing, in fact, that some festgoers may find themselves surveying the actual lineup today with a mild sense of deflation, even disappointment. I’ll be the first to admit that those of us fortunate enough to attend film festivals on a regular basis can too often lapse into a posture of whiny, »

Actors Turn Directors for Cannes 2014

17 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut.  The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »

Cannes 2014 Line-Up Led By The Rover, Maps To The Stars, Foxcatcher And More

17 April 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cinephiles, rejoice! The Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2014 line-up today and as usual, it’s pretty damn impressive. A lot of the movies announced were already expected to play at the prestigious fest, but there are definitely a few surprises as well.

Leading the way is Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will be the opener. Following that we’ll have David Cronenberg’s promising Maps to the Stars and Animal Kingdom helmer David Michod’s The Rover, two films that I absolutely cannot wait to see. Joining them will be Bennett Miller’s Oscar-hopeful Foxcatcher as well as Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria. The Artist director Michel Hazavanicius will be here too with his new film The Search, and Mike Leigh returns with Mr. Turner. But that only scratches the surface, and there’s still more to come, as next week will see the announcement of the Critics’ Week and Directors’ Fortnight line-ups. »

New Trailers and Posters for Foxcatcher, The Rover, and The Captive

17 April 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier today, the lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was announced, which means that marketing materials are going online, or in the case of Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, back online.  A teaser trailer was released last fall, but then Sony pulled it shortly before announcing that the film would be pushed back to 2014.  Now that the movie is playing in competition at Cannes, the Foxcatcher trailer is back online, and I highly recommend watching it if you haven't already.  There are also new posters and trailers David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and for Atom Egoyan's The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos.  Both films look fascinating, and I'm eager to hear the reaction to all of these pictures after they play at Cannes. Hit the jump to check out the trailers and posters.  The Rover opens in New York and L. »

Complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

17 April 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced and while at least one Out of Competition title is still to be announced, along with the Critics' Week and Directors' Fortnight lineups, we have a look at what films make up the competition and it's largely a lot of the titles that were rumored heading into today's announcement. Among the competition titles you have Atom Egoyan's Captives, which we'll have to hope is better than Devil's Knot, Bennett Miller's highly anticipated Foxcatcher, Jean-Luc Godard's 3D feature Goodbye To Language, The Homesman from Tommy Lee Jones, Ken Loach's Jimmy's Hall and David Cronengberg's Maps to the Stars. I'm jealous I won't be there to see Xavier Dolan's first time in competition with Mommy, Mike Leigh is again at Cannes with Mr. Turner and Michel Hazanavicius returns to Cannes after The Artist took the fest by storm with The Search. »

New Pics From Cannes-Selected 'Foxcatcher' With Steve Carell & Channing Tatum And 'Sils Maria' With Kristen Stewart

17 April 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cannes you believe it? (Sorry, we're already tired from being up early to cover this.) Thierry Fremaux and co. unveiled the slate for this years Cannes Film Festival (with a couple more titles to come), and yes, that means more images from the films in competition. First up is a new look at Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." The film, originally slated to be released last year, was held back so the director could put the finishing touches on it and now it's headed to the south of France. Here's the synopsis for the movie co-starring Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall: The story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and how paranoid schizophrenic John duPont killed his brother, Olympic Champion Dave Schultz. Next up is "Sils Maria" (or "Clouds Of Sils Maria"), the latest from Cannes fave Olivier Assayas which brings together Juliette Binoche, »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced; Foxcatcher, Maps To The Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, and More to Premiere

17 April 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters.  Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal.  Plus, that movie is playing out of competition.  Among the indies, the one I'll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.  Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Ryan Gosling's Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan's The Captive. Hit the jump to check out the full lineup.  The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th. Via Vulture. Opener Grace of Monaco, »

Cannes 2014 Lineup Revealed: Nicole Kidman, Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, and More

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.

The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.

Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »
