Marilyn Monroe Graces Official Poster For 65th Cannes Film Festival

Posted by , on February 28, 2012 at 5:05 pm 

The line-up won’t get revealed until April, but today we’ve the official poster for Cannes Film Festival 2012. In its 65th iteration, the prestigious festival will pay tribute to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, who graces this one-sheet. We’ll be hitting overseas again to cover and I can’t wait to see the line-up, as a few predictions have me highly-anticipating the reveal. For now check out the poster via the official site, along with a message, and check back for our complete coverage.

Fifty years after her death, Marilyn is still a major figure in world cinema, an eternal icon, whose grace, mystery and power of seduction remain resolutely contemporary. Each of her screen appearances sparks the imagination. The Festival poster captures Marilyn by surprise in an intimate moment where myth meets reality – a moving tribute to the anniversary of her passing, which coincides with the Festival anniversary. She enchants us with this promising gesture: a seductively blown kiss. The Festival is a temple of glamour and Marilyn is its perfect incarnation. Their coming together symbolises the ideal of simplicity and elegance.

Cannes Film Festival kicks off May 16th, 2012 and runs until the 27th.
