Prepare yourself for a flock of glittery celebs on the Cannes red carpet next month, including Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Marion Cotillard, Julia Roberts, and Parker Posey. Oh, and Adam Driver, Javier Bardem, Ryan Gosling, and George Clooney will also be in the house. Likely not glittering. But—you never know.
Cannes’s lineup, announced this morning, includes Pedro Almodóvar’s “Julieta” (based on three short stories from Alice Munro’s collection “Runaway”); Woody Allen’s “Café Society” (FYI, the original Café Society was a nightclub on Sheridan Square in NYC); Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson” (in which Driver apparently drives a bus); and Jodie Foster’s Money Monster (which is super ragey).
Other films on the docket include “Personal Shopper” (a Paris fashion world ghost story—yes, you read that correctly—with a double-dipping Stewart); “The Nice Guys” (with Gosling and Russell Crowe); “The BFG” (Steven Spielberg’s latest, adapted from Roald Dahl’s fantasy tale); “The Neon Demon” (a crazy-looking horror film starring Elle Fanning, described as “female-driven horror”); and “The Last Face” (directed by Sean Penn and starring Theron, so there’s that).
Cannes 2016 will happen in France May—or should we say, Mai—11 through 22. Can’t wait for the pics! To whet your appetite, check out a trailer for “Julieta” (below), which looks like another Almodóvar classic.
