Written by on April 19, 2018 


The complete Cannes 2018 lineup has now come into focus. After a number of announcements, the presumably final one has arrived and leading the pack is Lars von Trier’s The House That Jack Built (out of competition), Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s The Wild Pear Tree (in competition), and closing the festival is Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Also added is Ramin Bahrani’s HBO film Fahrenheit 451 and Kevin Macdonald’s Whitney Houston documentary Whitney.

The competition lineup also further expands, with Yann Gonzalez’s Vanessa Paradis-led drama Knife + Heart and Kazakh Sergey Dvortsevoy’s Ayka joining the group. Un Certain Regard adds Alejandro Fadel’s Muere, Monstruo, Muere, Renée Nader Messora and João Salaviza’s The Dead And The Others, and Sergey Loznitsa’s Donbass.

Ahead of the festival, kicking off in a few weeks, check out the first teaser for the new serial killer drama from Lars von Trier, who has been invited back to the festival after his infamous ban following remarks at the Melancholia press conference. The director has also announced his next project, courtesy of Soundvenue (via Indiewire), which finds him reacting to the “terrible” feelings while making his latest film:

“I’ve thought out a little plan to make some very modest, small films of a duration of 10 minutes each, which are called Études, where you try something new – narratively, technically or in terms of characters. I plan to make a series of 10 small films in black and white, and I was thinking to work with Nordic actors, as there are just so many good ones.”

We’ve also got the first look at Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s The Wild Pear Tree, which can be seen below.







And, lastly, a new trailer for the Cannes-bound Fahrenheit 451 remake starring Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan.
