Gore, once largely the preserve of the Marché, is entering the Cannes mainstream. Is a strange turnaround at work?
At the opening night gala for this year's Cannes film festival, the dignitaries were treated to a trailer showing all the delights to which they can look forward. The trailer began with a shot of Ryan Gosling breaking a glass in someone's face (in Only God Forgives) and ended with Forest Whitaker being stabbed through the ear (in Zulu). Good evening, dignitaries, and welcome to Cannes.
"Lights! Camera! Bloodbath!" bellows the headline in today's Hollywood Reporter, which goes on to quote a programmer's sheepish explanation that the trailer was "done in a hurry". In the meantime, festival director Thierry Fremaux is said to be unimpressed, reportedly "deploring" any impression given by the trailer that this year's lineup offers little more than a heaped buffet of GBH. That, after all, is what the Cannes Marché is for. »

There was plenty of Baz-razzmatazz as the 66th Cannes Film Festival bowed with a mix of fun, lofty hopes and melancholy that F. Scott Fitzgerald would have appreciated.
In the spirit of opener “The Great Gatsby,” a troupe of dancers dressed in 1920s-style outfits burst out of a period car and performed a dance on the red carpet.
Throngs of fans lined the road to the Palais, where the stars of Warner Bros.’ “Gatsby” elicited screams and cheers, and big names glamming it up on the red carpet included Julianne Moore, Freida Pinto, Lana Del Rey, Florence Welch, Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford, Fan Bingbing, Ludivine Sagnier, Zhang Ziyi, Walter Salles, Michel Piccoli, Agnes Varda and Roskino CEO Katya Mtsitouridze. France’s Minister of Culture Aurelie Filipetti and Venice Film Festival topper Alberto Barbera were also in attendance.

Under unseasonably cloudy skies and dodging a few raindrops, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire kicked off the 66th Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday just hours before walking the red carpet for their blockbuster film The Great Gatsby, which opened the star-studded 12-day extravaganza of movies and parties on the French Riviera. "Every time I go to Cannes it feels like I'm entering the helicopter scene in La Dolce Vita; it's an insane experience," said DiCaprio, who posed for photos on the fabled Croisette next to his Gatsby costars. Emma Watson, who stars in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, »

We may not be head over heels excited about Jérôme Salle’s “Zulu,” which will be the closing film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, but what’s great about Cannes are all the hidden possibilities. A greatly anticipated film might get booed at, while a film under everyone’s radar can be the talk of the town. “Zulu” might not fall under either category, but it’s at least fun to entertain the idea. Now two clips from the film have arrived, giving you an opportunity to get a better sense of what the movie’s all about. “Zulu” stars Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker. They play two police officers from Cape Town who investigate the murder of an 18 year old girl, the daughter of a member of the championship winning Springboks rugby team, and the investigation winds up revealing ties to the country’s apartheid past. In the first clip, »

Eight luminaries of eight different nationalities have joined the jury of the Cannes Film Festival, led this year for the first time by Steven Spielberg — including Austrian actor (and two-time Oscar winner) Christoph Waltz, Taiwanese director (and two-time Oscar winner) Ang Lee, and Australian actress (and… one-time Oscar winner) Nicole Kidman.
The jury is rounded out by five film vets from five more countries: Indian actress Vidya Balan, a Bollywood star who will also celebrate 100 years of the genre at a gala screening of Bombay Talkies; Japanese director Naomi Kawase, whose films have won Cannes’s Camera d’Or (in »

Hollywood aime Cannes. With the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival kicking off May 15 (and running through May 26) - and with The Great Gatsby opening the festival - stars will flock to the French Riviera to promote their latest films. But before the festival starts, create your own must-see list after checking out what will be premiering by watching these clips. The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire Bling Ring starring Emma Watson Only God Forgives starring Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas Inside Llewyn Davis is a Coen Brothers film with Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and »
Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, whose La-thriller Drive ran rings round the Croisette two years ago, are planning a second pitstop on the Riviera, it has been confirmed. Their latest collaboration, Only God Forgives, which sees Gosling as a taciturn gangster in Bangkok (and Kristin Scott Thomas as his mother) is the most mainstream entry in the eclectic lineup for this year's competition.
Also rolling onto the grid are new films from the Coen brothers, Alexander Payne, Steven Soderbergh and Roman Polanski. Joel and Ethan Coen present Inside Llewyn Davis, set in the folk scene of 1960s New York, while Soderbergh's Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra will also vie for the Palme d'Or. The film, which stars Michael Douglas as the pianist, »

Paris — The Cannes Film Festival's 2013 lineup announced Thursday features work from some of the globe's most dangerous locales for artists, and a sprinkling of works by old favorites including Roman Polanski, the Coen brothers and Steven Soderbergh.
Celebrating world cinema from countries with limited freedom of expression is clearly one of this year's stories, with works from Chad, China, Mexico and Iran among the 19 films competing for the Palme d'Or, one of cinema's most coveted prizes.
"The festival is a house that shelters artists in danger," said Cannes President Gilles Jacob, who announced the nominees Thursday.
Harking from Africa, "Grigris" by Chadian filmmaker Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, will feature alongside "The Life of Adele" from French-Tunisian director Abdellatif Kechiche. "Zulu" – a police thriller shot in South Africa and starring Forest Whitaker and Orlando Bloom – will close the festival but is not competing.
The list also includes "A Touch of Sin" by »
It’s finally here! The line up for the 66th Cannes Film Festival has officially been announced and we don’t think it would be too premature to say it has got a blinding line up. Films by Steven Soderbergh, Alexander Payne and The Coen Brothers will all be battling it out for the Palme d’Or prize this year, but one getting all the hype already is Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, which sees Refn reunited with Ryan Gosling after the success with the movie Drive. ‘Un Certain Regard’ also has some big ones, including Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and James Franco’s As I Lay Dying.
Check out the full line up below:

This morning the Cannes Film Festival announced its official lineup, and it is a star-studded affair. Films up for the main competition this year include the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis, Alexander Payne's Nebraska (Will Forte's going to Cannes!), Nicolas Winding Refn’s Ryan Gosling–starring Only God Forgives, Roman Polanski's Venus in Fur (his racing documentary Weekend of a Champion will also be screening), and maybe most surprisingly Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra. Films competing in the festival's undercard Un Certain Regard competition include Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, Sundance breakout Fruitvale Station, and James Franco's As I Lay Dying adaptation. Read the full lineup below. The festival opens on May 15, so you better start thinking soon about how you can convince your bosses that a trip to Cannes is a totally justifiable work expense.

The line-up for the 66th Cannes Film Festival, which takes place from 15-26 May, was announced in Paris this morning at 11am. As per usual, the opening and closing films had both been confirmed well in advance of the full programme reveal - with Baz Luhrmann's sweeping 1930s epic The Great Gatsby kicking off proceedings (out of competition), and Jérôme Salle's South African thriller Zulu wrapping up the festivities. We also knew about the selection of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, an independently-spirited American teen drama starring our very own Emma Watson. New films from the Coen brothers, Soderbergh, Polanski, Nicolas Winding Refn, Hirokazu Kore-eda and Asghar Farhadi also made the grade.

With less than a month to go before the festival kicks off out in France, the official line-up has finally been unveiled for this year’s 66th Cannes Film Festival.
The festival is, of course, one of the most prominent events of the year for the industry, with a handful of films launching their status as strong awards contenders out on the Croisette.
Last year, it was Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, Michael Haneke’s Amour, Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt, Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. The year before that, it was Michael Hazanavicius’ The Artist, Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris.

As usual, sifting the actual fact from the speculation when it comes to the line-up of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has been a little tricky. We know the opener -- Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," the closer -- "Zulu," with Forest Whitaker and Orlando Bloom, and as of yesterday, the Un Certain Regard headliner, in the shape of Sofia Coppola's "Bling Ring." But aside from the occasional film that's been taken out of the running properly, like Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer," the field's still been wide open. Until this morning, that is -- the line-up for the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival has been unveiled. And as ever, there's plenty of gold to be found If you've had your ears close to the ground, and there were few surprises. As expected, Steven Soderbergh's "Behind The Candelabra," Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives," The Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn »
