Cannes Film Festival line-up announced: Ryan Gosling & lots of Twihard drama


The Cannes Film Festival organizers announced their line-up for this year, and there’s a distinct lack of Brangelina. BOOO! I guess it’s possible that Angelina could do a screening of Maleficent, but she didn’t make it onto the official schedule. Fortunately, it’s looking like this year’s Cannes Film Festival will be a good year of dong – you can read more about the line-up here. Some notable highlights:

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River will be competing in the more artsy Un Certain Regard competition. It stars Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes and Matt Smith, so that should be interesting. Will Eva and Ryan walk the carpet together?

Nicole Kidman will open Cannes with Grace of Monaco. That should be a good moment for fashion – Nicole usually brings it for Cannes.

The Tommy Lee Jones-directed film The Homesman will be in competition. The film stars Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Jones, Hailee Steinfeld and James Spader.

The Foxcatcher will be in competition, starring: Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum.

We might get a touch of Blake Lively because Ryan Reynolds will be premiering The Captive. Will Blake walk the carpet with Ryan? That will be interesting. Blake hasn’t been to Cannes since she was dating Leonardo DiCaprio.

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy will surely be on hand to promote Eleanor Rigby at Un Certain Regard.

There will be Twihard drama, of course. Kristen Stewart will premiere Clouds of Sils Maria (in competition) while Robert Pattinson will be doing double duty, promoting Maps to the Stars (in competition) and The Rover, which has a midnight screening at the festival. Here’s the new trailer for The Rover (Guy Pearce looks amazing):

    I hope Ryan’s film does well, for Christina Hendricks’ sake. I’d love to see her become a film star after Mad Men is over.

    Another hot man but not a bloke. Poor Sixer.

  3. lisa2 says:

    How is there drama when the films are not premiering at the same time. I doubt they will even see each other.. And do people really care that much outside their fans.

  4. AlmondJoy says:

    Am I the only woman alive that doesn’t swoon and faint at the sight of Gosling?

    With that said, I love his shirt in the first picture and would very much like it if he lets me borrow it.

  5. Kim1 says:

    I read Angelina will debut Unbroken at Venice FF , it won’t be ready for Cannes.

  6. harpreet says:

    Am pretty sure Blake will show up, she is a L’Oreal girl, wait they are a L’Oreal couple.

  7. Jegede says:

    I feel as if awards season just ended and its already starting ALL OVER AGAIN!

  8. colleen says:

    But more importantly, why did they screw up the line from the Yeats poem in the trailer? Maybe they think people don’t know what the word “mere” means? Sigh.

  9. Why is he wearing an eight-year old’s pajama top?

    The song of the Rover’s trailer is pretty great btw, Sol Seppy – Enter one if you wondered.

    I thought the Maleficent showing at Cannes started off as wishful thinking from Lainey that inexplicably morphed in to a story as all things Angelina are wont to do. I honestly think they had no plans to show it there.

  12. Reece says:

    I want to see Gosling’s film mostly because of the Matt Smith and those WTW photos from the set. So i hope it does well and gets distributed. If it isn’t already.

    Foxctcher looks like one of those movies that it would be hard to sit through.

    What is that mumbly accent Sparkles is doing? Guy Pearce does look awesome though!

  13. Lark says:

    I’m so excited that Jean-Luc Godard’s new film is going to be there. Plus, the Saint Laurent biopic sounds amazing……So many good French films….I’m kind of curious to see how Gosling does with his directorial debut. As far as the twi-hards go and the bizarre stans and anti-stans, they need to chill the heck out. There are tens of thousands of people at Cannes and those two probably won’t even be at the festival at the same time.

    • Violet says:

      The new Godard looks pretty amazing and considering he has had a kind of renaissance lately (Film Socilaism maybe one of his best films), I’m pretty excited for it. Hope if it’s fantastic as they are saying and it wins something (hopefully the Palm D’or), for it is the only festival that is missing for Godard to have the perfect festival trifeca.

    RP’s short arms always distract me. Silly, superficial comment, but I needed to get it out.

  15. Tig says:

    Looks like an interesting line up. I think it’ll be fun to see these actors branch into directing- who knows, RG may end up with a Marvel movie at some point!

  16. Ali says:

    Ryan use to be VERY hot…BEFORE the nose job and before, even, (hey, girls!) The Notebook. He can play VERY sexy, brooding character in the right movies. And his original, longer nose was JUST enough so he wasn’t ‘pretty’.
