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, »

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, »

Also competing for the Palme d’Or is The Homesman from director Tommy Lee Jones, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, which features Robert Pattinson.
How to Train Your Dragons 2 will also premiere at Cannes, with an out of competition screening. »

The Cannes Film Festival has announced its line-up of films for the 2014 festival running from May 14 to May 25, and as usual, it includes a number of familiar names in competition as well as a few new faces and first-time directors. It had already been announced that this year's festival would open with the premiere of Olivier ( La Vie en Rose ) Dahan's Grace of Monaco , starring Nicole Kidman, but today's press conference confirmed some of the films in competition would include Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher , starring Channing Tatum and Steve Carell, which was also delayed from a 2013 release; David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars ; Atom Egoyan's The Captive , starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson; The Search , Michel Hazanavicius's follow-up to the Oscar-winning The »
The last four or five editions of the Cannes Film Festival have been heavy on global movie star power. Sure, it won't always compete with Hollywood fueled Toronto, but the programmers have made sure the paparazzi have had someone pretty to photograph on the festival's legendary red carpet. 2014 is no different. (You could also argue more well known actors have jumped into he prestige game in their off time over the past decade, but, frankly, it's somewhat cyclical.) With that in mind, here are 10 big names who we expect to follow their films to Cannes in just a few weeks. Robert Pattinson The former "Twilight" star has been to Cannes before. He starred in David Cronenberg's drama "Cosmopolis" which premiered on the Croisette in 2012. Now, he's back with another Cronenberg title, "Map to the Stars," and David Michôd's "The Rover" alongside Guy Pearce. Nicole Kidman We've known this one for awhile. »

Ryan Gosling, Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg are among the directors whose films will screen at the 67th Cannes Film Festival, Cannes organizers announced on Thursday morning in Paris. The festival's most prestigious section, the main competition lineup, will feature 18 films, including Jones’ “The Homesman,” with Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank; Miller's “Foxcatcher,” with Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carrell; and Cronenberg's “Maps to the Stars,” with Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore; and “Farewell to Language” from legendary French director Jean-Luc Godard, who has promised the festival that he will attend.

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.
The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”
One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux sent out mixed messages in his -- very long, as usual -- preamble to announcing this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup. First he mentioned a focus on newer, fresher filmmakers, but mentioned elsewhere that "Cannes is an event for the regulars." Predictably enough, the latter statement turned out to be closer to the truth: of the 18 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, 13 have been to the dance before. (And of the Competition virgins, Bennett Miller and Xavier Dolan are hardly unknowns.) Early on, meanwhile, Fremaux made the initially bold statement that 15 women were in the Official Selection, promising a bounty of female directors for jury president Jane Campion to consider. It turned out to be a slight manipulation of the truth: several of those women are involved in portmanteau films, while only two of them -- Naomi Kawase and surprise inclusion Alice Rohrwacher »

Los Angeles, April 17: Actor Channing Tatum says he might star in an upcoming "X-Men" film as he's been meeting with producers about taking on the role of Gambit.
The "21 Jump Street" star has admitted he's been meeting with producers of the sci-fi films and has been discussing the possibility of taking on the role of Gambit, who he says he relates to because of their shared heritage, reports contactmusic.com.
"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner(producer of 'X-Men'). And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved," he said.
"I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south - my dad's from Louisiana, I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida - I don't know. I just relate. »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.
Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

In keeping with the tradition of celebrating our nation’s birth by grilling up a lot of weiners, Magic Mike Xxl will grind and thrust its way into theaters on July 3, 2015, adding to the insanity of an already crowded summer release schedule. Magic Mike Xxl will be going pec to pec with Terminator: Genesis, set to be released on July 1. I have a feeling they aren’t targeting the same audience, though.
Magic Mike was a surprise hit for Warner Bros., bringing in well over $150 million on a $7 million budget. But it was a pretty self-contained story, and without director Steven Soderbergh behind the camera, I don’t know if they can elevate the cliched and cheesy aspects as well as the first film did. Also, didn’t he quit stripping at the end? Is it going to be Magic Mike Xxl: Return of the Thong? Dear Lord, I hope not. »

It won’t be long now until the X-Men franchise sets a new record for onscreen mutants with Days of Future Past, a movie about future X-Men and past X-Men and perhaps even some present-day X-Men. Beyond lies Apocalypse and another Wolverine and a mysterious spin-off movie that might be X-Force, with the implicit promise that they’ll keep making X-Men movies until X-Men 2099 is considered a period piece. (Remember X-Men 2099? Skullfire!) But a new dark horse has entered the X-Men Spin-Off Showcase sweepstakes: Channing Tatum told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he has spoken to X-producer Lauren Shuler Donner »

On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection announcement, a major competition prospect has emerged in Tommy Lee Jones’ frontier drama “The Homesman,” starring Jones and Hilary Swank as a claim jumper and a pioneer woman undertaking a perilous journey across the Midwest. Also featuring Meryl Streep, William Fichtner and Hailee Steinfeld, the film marks Jones’ first directorial outing since his 2005 Western, “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” which walked away from the Croisette with two major prizes. Like “Three Burials,” “The Homesman” was financed and produced by Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, which is also handling international sales on the film.
Also set to make its world premiere in Cannes is 20th Century Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” which will receive an out-of-competition screening, in keeping with the festival’s tradition of bowing a U.S. studio blockbuster the first weekend. The sequel, »

The McConaissance was a wonderful thing for pop culture. It brought us Mud, and True Detective, and of course, culminated in Mr. Alright, Alright, Alright finally earning an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
But are fans of Matthew McConaughey about to experience a downside to the actor’s recent success? The Channing Tatum-penned Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, just received a release date of July 3, 2015. If things Work Out As They Should, it should be a wonderful two hours of G-strings, ’80s songs, and showcases of Tatum-created dance moves (ideally with less Alex Pettyfer and »

The X-Men are sitting on top of the movie world right now. The third official trailer for Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past blew half of the Internet away when it dropped last night. A sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, already is in play. But the potential for growth is always evident, and the already bustling cast of Fox.s mutant universe constantly teases new additions, or different versions of characters we have seen before. Channing Tatum would like to be one of those "different versions."
