2018 Cannes Film Festival Line Up Announced

The ceremony starts in May (as per the norm).

The Festive De Cannes is upon us to shower us with voices from all across the cinema world! Though unfortunately Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will not premiere as intended (due to dumb legal issues) or the festival’s elitist approach to Netflix, the rest of the line up looks pretty healthy overall, with notable highlights including the first showings of the new Star Wars film Solo and a Spike Lee/Jordan Peele collaboration in the form of BlackKkKlansman.
