Nor will Lionsgate be holding another glamorous shindig with J-La, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth on hand to celebrate it blockbuster "Mockingjay" franchise. And, thankfully, we won't have "The Expendables" crew pretending to drive a tank down la croisette. That being said, the 68th Festival du Cannes may have more recognizable Hollywood or Hollywood-adjacent stars on hand than in recent memory. There are at least eight English-language films in competition and studio fare such as Pixar's "Inside Out," "Mad Max: Fury Road" and Woody Allen's latest, "Irrational Man" are screening as well. Basically, if you're a movie fan you should pay attention because many of the films we'll be reporting on won't just hit your local art house, but mega-multiplex as well.

Swank wasn't nominated for anything, but she acted as a presenter of sorts at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. How so? Well, she introduced last year's Best Director winner, Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), who then presented this year's Best Director Oscar to Tom Hooper for The King's Speech. Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank has taken home two Best Actress Oscar statuettes. Kimberly Peirce's Boys Don't Cry (1999). Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby (2004). These were her only two nominations as well. Both times she beat Annette Bening, who was in the running this year once again for her role as a lesbian wife and mother in Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right, »

Courtney Love: the unlikeliest comeback story of the year?
