5 movies that we are waiting at the Cannes film festival

Before the start of the Cannes film festival exactly two months. It’s time to imagine what movies might be on the Croisette.

70-th Cannes film festival will be held from 17 to 28 may. While it is known only, that the Chairman of the jury will be directed by Pedro Almodovar. It is also known that the main competition program will be announced on 13 April that the new film by Xavier Dolan it will not be exact (the Director wrote in the social networks, which do not have time to finish the painting). All the rest is speculation. However, nothing prevents us to arrange guesswork, looking at the major projects that we would like to see in may on the Cote d’azur.


Christopher Nolan war drama— almost the perfect candidate to open the Cannes film festival. This movie in a big way, but the plot of human history. Starring busy pop star Harry styles, that will attract young people, but among the other actors Tom hardy, mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, and Kenneth Branagh. The Nolan films have never been shown in Cannes, and indeed the last time a major festival has taken his movie 17 years ago (“Remember” in 2000 in Venice).

Alien: Covenant

Another great option for the opening of the festival is the much — anticipated movie that will instantly draw the attention of the public to what is happening on the French Riviera. Of course, this is a bit of a utopian idea. After all, 70-th Cannes film festival is unlikely to open fantastic. But still filmed by Ridley Scott, and in 2010, his “Robin hood” opens Cannes, so why not dream?

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Luc Besson returns to sci-Fi, it can be a great occasion for the Cannes premiere. Especially given that “the Fifth element” opened the 50th Cannes festival. When in the film there is a star of the catwalks Cara Delevingne and pop star Rihanna, as well as Dane Dehaan, Ethan hawke, John Goodman, Clive Owen, Rutger Hauer and Mathieu Kassovitz, the attention of the press is guaranteed. An adaptation of one of the most popular French comics one of the leading French Directors — here are a couple of reasons to get the tape into the program. Of course, out of competition. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets release date announced at spring 2017

Le Fidèle

Belgian Michael R. Roskam opened the world of the actor Matthias Sonarda in the movie “the Jerk”. The picture was nominated for “Oscar”, well, Roskam tried himself in the field of the English drama movie “Obshchak”. After this attempt, he returned to French cinema with the film “Faithful”, where Adele exarchopoulos wears from drama “Life Adele” plays a racer, and Sonars — a gangster who is in love with her. Tragic love story — what we need the Cannes film festival.


“The artist” Michel Hazanavichus at the last moment appeared at the Cannes film festival in 2011, providing Jean Dujardin award for best actor and pushing the painting to the premium season. Five Oscars, including the category “Best film”, forced to wait for a new movie Director with a special interest. The story about the Chechen war, “Search” is not fired, so, Hazanavicius returned to the theme of the movie. Louis Garrel plays in Director Jean-Luc Godard, who begins an affair with the actress Ann Vyazemskoe (Stacy Martin). Even without Cannes this anticipated project.
