16 April 2017 8:41 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If the last 69 years are any indication, in one month many of the year’s best films will begin to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. With the 70th edition kicking off shortly, following the line-up, we now have a handful of debut images from our most-anticipated titles.

First up, above, there’s the debut look at Robert Pattinson in Good Time, the next feature from Heaven Knows What duo Josh and Benny Safdie. A crime drama also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Barkhad Abdi, not much else is known about the film, but co-director Josh Safdie had this to say on Instagram:

Good Time, the film we’ve been slaving over for the past 19 months, will world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in the main competition. Here’s a still of #RobertPattinson as Connie Nikas. He and everyone else in the film are incredible. @a24 will release it in the Us. »

Cannes 2017: our chief critic's guide to the Competition line-up

13 April 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen’s chief critic and reviews editor Fionnuala Halligan dissects this year’s Competition films.

Welcome to the “huge party” of Cannes 70.  If the Official Selection this year is a “lab”, the formula isn’t quite complete - Thierry Fremaux announced 18 films which will compete for the Palme D’Or today, implying that three have yet to arrive (he also hinted that a glaring absence, that of a film from China for the second consecutive year, may yet be rectified; nothing was said however about the absence of a major Hollywood studio thus far).

Cannes 2017: Official Selection in full

A total of 1,930 films viewed, the selection process running through to 3am: Cannes 70 will be a “meeting, a vision of the world, and a promise of a better life together”. No small ambition, but the line-up has been warmly greeted by cineastes. Clearly, it isn’t a same-old-names Cannes habitues Competition, although [link=nm »

First image for Mundruczó's Cannes contender 'Jupiter's Moon'

13 April 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The film, from the director of White God, was previously titled Superfluous Man.

The first image from the new film by Kornél Mundruczó - Jupiter’s Moon - has been released (see above).

It has been selected to play in competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Match Factory is handling international sales on the project, which was previously titled Superfluous Man.

Kornél Mundruczó’s last film White God won the Prize Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2014.

Jupiter’s Moon stars Merab Ninidze, György Cserhalmi, Mónika Balsai and Zsombor Jéger and was written by Mundruczó and Kata Wéber.

The film is about a young immigrant who is shot down while illegally crossing the border. Terrified and in shock, the wounded man can now mysteriously levitate at will. Thrown into a refugee camp, he is smuggled out by a doctor intent on exploiting his extraordinary secret.

Cannes: New Films From Todd Haynes, Sofia Coppola Expected; Will Brad Pitt Return to the Croisette?

22 March 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck,” Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja” with Jake Gyllenhaal, and John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” with Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning are strongly tipped to world premiere as official selections of the 70th edition of Cannes Film Festival.

Although Netflix has acquired films from Cannes in the past (including 2016 Camera d’Or winner “Divines”), “Okja” could be the first project produced by the company to bow in Cannes. “Okja” also attracted the support of Brad Pitt’s Plan B as a producer. Korean stylist Joon-ho’s film “Mother” premiered in Cannes in 2009.

In terms of pedigree and timing, “The Beguiled” couldn’t be better situated. Coppola is a Cannes vet after premiering “The Bling Ring” in 2013 and “Marie Antoinette” in 2006, and Focus plans to release the Civil War-set film June 23 in the U.S. A re-adaptation of Thomas Cullen »
