On the heels of yesterday’s TIFF lineup announcement, the Venice Film Festival has announced their 2018 lineup and it’s a doozy. We’ll start with the films not part of TIFF (yet): Orson Welles’ long-awaited The Other Side of the Wind, the Coens’ anthology The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (which was thought to be a miniseries, but is actually a film, coming out this year!), Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria, Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook follow-up The Nightingale (first look below), and Brady Corbet’s musical drama Vox Lux.

Also in the lineup is S. Craig Zahler’s Dragged Across Concrete, Mike Leigh’s Peterloo, Carlos Reygadas’s Neustro Tiempo, Paul Greengrass’ July 22, Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate and Rick Alverson’s The Mountain, plus new documentaries from Frederick Wiseman, Sergei Loznitsa, Errol Morris, Tsai Ming-Liang, and Gaston Solnicki.

There’s also the previously-announced First Man and A Star is Born, as well as Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma, Laszlo Nemes’ Sunset, Jacques Audiard’s The Sisters Brothers, Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, Olivier Assayas’ Non-Fiction, and more. All in all, on paper, this looks like one of the most promising lineups they’ve ever had. As a special bonus the festival will also screen the forthcoming extended cut of Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, which clocks in at 189 minutes and certainly makes up for no Radegund.
