After we got the news last night via a trailer that David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis would be joining the Cannes line-up, the rest of the titles have been revealed. It’s a strong one, with Andrew Dominik‘s Assassination of Jesse James follow-up being my most-anticipated of the bunch, along with the next features from Abbas Kiarostami (Certified Copy) and Jacques Audiard (A Prophet). We’ve also got new films from Michael Haneke, Take Shelter’s Jeff Nichols, Lee Daniels, Ken Loach, John Hillcoat and Walter Salles.

There are a good amount of rumored titles missing, as Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master, new Terrence Malick, Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines and Park Chan-wook’s Stoker are nowhere to be found. We’ll have to wait until fall festival debuts for that batch, most likely. Playing in other categories we’ve got midnight films from Dario Argento and Takashi Miike and Beasts of the Southern Wild, the clear Sundance favorite from Benh Zeitlin playing in certain regard. Check out the full line-up below and head back for our coverage straight from the fest!
