The 63rd Cannes Film Festival will run from May 12th to the 23rd with Tim Burton confirmed as the President of the Jury. Last year Pixar’s Up kicked off the festival, screening out of competition. This year it will be Ridley Scott‘s Robin Hood, premiering only two days before its global May 14th release. This will be the first time Ridley Scott has shown at the festival, since 1991’s Thelma and Louise also screened out of competition. Check out a brand new international poster from the film below.
In an interview with Vulture Aaron Eckhart also said the Johnny Depp-starring Rum Diary may see a premiere at Cannes as well. Other anticipated titles include:
- Terrence Malik’s The Tree of Life
- Julie Taymour’s The Tempest
- William Monohan’s London Boulevard
- Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Biutiful
- Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
