Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced — Follow Live 


French industry and press are gathered this morning at the UGC Normandie theatre in Paris where Thierry Frémaux is about to lay out the official selection for this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Scroll down for an updated list of titles. 

Among big-ticket titles already confirmed are Megalopolis, two-time Palme d’Or winner Francis Coppola’s latest, which has locked a gala premiere slot at the Palais on Friday evening May 17. The film will screen in competition. Out of Competition, Kevin Costner will debut the first part of Horizon: An American Saga as a world premiere. And George Miller’s anticipated sequel Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga has been confirmed for an out-of-comp slot. The new installment will be released theatrically in France on May 22, two days ahead of its U.S. launch.

A livestream of Frémaux’s announcement can be seen on the Cannes website as well as the festival’s official YouTube channel.

Cannes will open this year with Quentin Dupieux‘s French-language comedy road movie Le Deuxième Acte (The Second Act). Léa Seydoux, Vincent Lindon, Louis Garrel and Raphaël Quenard star and will be in attendance. Presented Out of Competition as a world premiere on the Croisette on Tuesday, May 14, the four-part feature will be released in French cinemas on the same day.

The official synopsis reads: “Florence wants to introduce David, the man she’s madly in love with, to her father Guillaume. But David isn’t attracted to Florence and wants to throw her into the arms of his friend Willy. The four characters meet in a restaurant in the middle of nowhere.”

Following the success of last year’s billionaire dollar Barbie, Greta Gerwig will preside over this year’s main jury. 

The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 14-25.
