Competition : KILLING THEM SOFTLY by Andrew DOMINIK
04/19/2012 6:40 AM
But beyond that, nothing's been certain, although all kinds of rumors have been circulating. Would we see Terrence Malick debut a new film for the second year in a row? Would Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" bow on the Croisette? Would Adam Sandler's "That's My Boy" finally see him gain festival love? (it's possible we made the last one up).
Well, the line-up's finally been unveiled, and as per gut feeling late
last night, a lot of the speculation has centered around American films,
but the reality is something much different. That's not to say that it
isn't an interesting line-up perhaps its best in years. Leading the pack
are the expected films, David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" starring Robert Pattinson, which was actually confirmed earlier this morning, Walter Salles' long-gestating "On The Road" starring Garett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart and many others and Jacques Audiard's latest drama, "Rust & Bone" starring Marion Cotillard. Other sure bets we expected Michael Haneke's "Amour," and Abbas Kiarostami's "Like Someone In Love" will also be bowing out in competition slots.
Three films seemingly tipped for competition slots that made the grade include some highly anticipated 2012 films including John Hillcoat's "Lawless" starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain and many others, Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" featuring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron and Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," formerly known as "Cogan's Trade," starring Brad Pitt.
To no real shock, heavily-touted pictures like Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" and Terrence Malick's Untitled Romance (known as "The Funeral") drama starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams were
nowhere to be seen, the former something you'll have to wait til the
fall, the latter, well, who knows. Well, without further ado, here's the
entire 2012 Cannes Film Festival line-up.
04/19/2012 6:54 AM
PARIS - Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, Michael Haneke's Amour and Walter Salles' On the Road will join Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard and David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis for a trip to the 65th annual Festival de Cannes.
Also screening in the competition are Holy Motors by Leos Carax, The Angels' Share by Ken Loach and Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly with Brad Pitt.
Joining them will be veteran filmmaker Alain Resnais
who may be approaching 90, but will be part of the competition at next
month's festival. He says it all with the title of his new film, Vous N’Avez Encore Rien Vu (You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet), an adaptation of Jean Anouilh’s Eurydice starring Cannes veteran Mathieu Amalric.
Festival president Gilles Jacob and artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the official selection for this year’s film festival at a press conference in Paris late Thursday morning.
International media gathered at the Grand Hotel Intercontinental to
hear Fremaux declare what titles would be screened on the French Riviera
alongside Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, the festival’s previously announced opening night film, which will also be in the competition. DreamWorks Animation's Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is also expected to cause a stir on the red carpet.
Amidst the excitement and red carpet glitter, the festival will also pay homage to director Claude Miller, who passed away earlier this month, with a special closing night of Miller’s last film Therese Desqueyroux starring Gilles Lellouche and Audrey Tautou that the fest announced Wednesday.
Among the special screenings announced are The Central Park Five by Ken Burns, Sarah Burns and David McMahan and Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir by Laurent Bouzereau.
The out of competition film slate includes Io e Te (Me and You) from Bernardo Bertolucci.
Italian director Nanni Moretti, who scooped a Palme d’Or for The Son’s Room in 2001, will preside over the jury. The Un Certain Regard jury will be headed by British actor and director Tim Roth.The Artist star Berenice Bejo will host the fest's opening and closing ceremonies.
In true French festival fashion, last-minute additions are expected
to be announced in the coming days. The Festival de Cannes runs May

Get those cameras ready!
Just-engaged Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
will once again be king and queen of the Cannes Film Festival when the
massive annual event descends upon the French Riviera May 16 to 27. If
history serves, Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, will likely walk the red carpet
together -- in what would be their first red carpet appearance since
announcing their engagement last week. But they won't be the only
mega-wattage pair in attendance: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will also be on hand!
On Thursday, the lineup for the festival was announced, with plenty of highly anticipated A-list films in competition.
04/19/2012 11:51 AM
'Killing Them Softly'
They join DreamWorks Animation's "Madagascar 3:
Europe's Most Wanted," which world preems at Cannes, noncompeting, in a
65th edition with some undeniable U.S. film firepower and potentially
even larger Hollywood star wattage.
Already thought locks for
Cannes, David Cronenberg's Don DeLillo adaptation "Cosmopolis," with
Robert Pattinson, and Walter Salles' Jack Kerouac take "On the Road,"
also vie for the Palme d'Or, as does Lee Daniels' erotic thriller "The
Paperboy," with Nicole Kidman.
With Shia LaBoeuf in "Lawless,"
Nicole Kidman toplining "Paperboy" and multiple A-list ensemble casts
gracing U.S. picks and beyond, the 65th Cannes fest has all the makings
of a glitzy affair.
Bearing the imprimatur of delegate general
Thierry Fremaux the competition boasts a catholic mix of newer talent,
some genre gristle, left-of-field and heavyweight auteurs, often Riviera
regulars, such as Austria's Michael Haneke ("Amour"), Iran's Abbas
Kiarostami ("Like Someone in Love"), Romania's Cristian Mungiu ("Beyond
the Hills"), and Britain's Ken Loach ("The Angel's Share").
bruited for Cannes, Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone," with Marion
Cotillard, will fly the flag for France, as will Leos Carax's "Holy
Motors," with Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, and Alain
Resnais' "You Haven't Seen Anything Yet."
Among other movies
making the competition cut, Fremaux confirmed "Gomorrah" director Mateo
Garrone's "Reality," about Italian TV; Im Sang-soo's thriller "Taste of
Money"; Hong Sang-soo's "In Another Country," with Isabelle Huppert and
Egyptian Yousry Nasrallah's "Baad el mawkeaa."
Reygadas' "Post tenebras lux," Austrian Ulrich Seidl's "Paradise: Love"
and Dane Thomas Vinterberg's "The Hunt" also make the competition cut.
a packed press conference Thursday morning in Paris' Grand Hotel,
Fremaux, flanked by Cannes president Gilles Jacob, said that at the fest
this year, "American cinema will be relatively strong, and not just
Sundance-style independent cinema and studio fare."

THR reports that Penelope Cruz is now the frontrunner to play Michael Fassbender's
love interest in the film, his fiancé Laura. But we wonder if the trade
has possibly mixed things up? She would be much more suited to the
Almodóvarean femme fatale Malkina, which would jibe with earlier reports that Angelina Jolie is eyeing the smaller role of Laura instead (and would work more in favor of her busy schedule which includes Disney's "Maleficent"
this summer). Things have been murky about which parts the female
talent has been eyeing all through this process so we guess we'll see
how it plays out. But damn, Cruz would be another fantastic addition
(particularly in the role of Malkina who we figured would be high on wishlists). If Cruz comes on board, it would mark the eighth film with her husband Javier Bardem (and if Jolie gets confirmed, she'll have Brad Pitt on her arm and it's gonna be a battle for power couple status).
The story follows an attorney (Fassbender) who is in search of a big
payday after he proposes to his girlfriend, Laura. So he hooks up with
Reiner (Bardem), an acquaintance with deep criminal ties, for a new
business proposition: they'll take $20 million worth of cocaine from
south of the border and offload it themselves, aided by the no-good
Westray (Pitt). As you might imagine, things do not go well for anyone
Things should be firmed up soon. Production on "The Counselor" starts in June.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrive at the Baltra Airport on the Galapagos Islands for some family vacation time with the kids earlier this week.
The newly engaged couple brought along the entire family for the tropical vacay. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox joined mom and dad in the celebration of their post-engagement announcement vacation!
PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Angelina Jolie
Angelina‘s engagement ring was designed by Brad with jeweler Robert Procop. Check out the pic of her beautiful jewel in case you missed it!
Ooooh from Gia, love that movie. Black and white pics of Angie are always fabulous.
Love that pic with Madd, how cute is he, and she's not too bad either!

THE STAR WHO DOESN'T NEED A BOOST:
Brad Pitt: He wants an Oscar though. While he may have
lost the "Moneyball" statuette he deserved to "The Artist"'s Jean
Dujardin, 2011 was Pitt's best year ever; last year at Cannes "The Tree
of Life" won the Palme d'Or. This year, Pitt has been rewarded with a
Cannes Competition slot for loyally rejoining Aussie Andrew Dominik (who
directed him in underappreciated cult fave "The Assassination of Jesse
James) on the gangster pic "Killing Them Softly." With Harvey Weinstein
behind him, a Cannes launch could set Pitt up for another Oscar
2012 and 2013 are looking strong for Pitt. He also stars in Marc
Forster's zombie epic "World War Z" (June 2013) and the
currently-filming third feature from Steve McQueen ("Twelve Years a
Slave," opposite Michael Fassbender). As befits a star at the apex of
the Hollywood food chain, he has several more projects in the works (as
producer and/or actor) -- not to mention his official engagement to
partner Angelina Jolie. Pitt is hot as ever with the best of his career
04/21/2012 3:58 AM
The Hollywood star is staying in Richmond and won’t be able to use his
preferred method of transport – a helicopter.
A no-fly zone around the area for the Olympics – the road race cycling route
passes through Richmond Park – means Brad will have to settle for being
chauffeured around in taxis.
A source said: “Brad’s gutted because he can get to any appointment with
minimum fuss using a chopper.
“Now he’ll just have to experience British roads like everybody else.
“He’d better be prepared to be stuck in traffic.”
Brad, his fiancée Angelina Jolie and their six children will be staying in the
UK for an extended period while Ange works on three films.
She will have the kids back in their favourite pottery painting shop in
Richmond right away – it saves paying out for posh plates at their nuptials.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt take a car ride to the local airport on the Galapagos Islands on Saturday (April 21).
The newly engaged couple have reportedly been vacationing on the islands for the better part of a week. Brad and Angelina arrived with their kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, for their post-engagement announcement relaxing vacation.
Brad and Angelina announced their engagement last week.
We can’t wait to hear about the wedding details!

SARAJEVO (AFP) - Angelina Jolie, whose recent
directorial debut put a spotlight on the 1992-95 war in Bosnia, was
named an honorary citizen of Sarajevo on Monday.
Jolie, whose engagement to Brad Pitt was
confirmed earlier this month, was honoured for her contribution to
'keeping the truth about wartime events in Sarajevo and
Bosnia-Hercegovina alive,' the regional government said in a statement.
The 36-year-old actress was invited to a May 3
ceremony where she'll be given the charter of an honorary citizen, a
county official told AFP.
The award is given by the Sarajevo county
every year to a foreign national who promotes humanity, democracy and
tolerance. Jolie's film In The Land Of Blood And Honey, shot in 2010
with several actors from the former Yugoslavia, premiered in 2011.

Angelina Jolie makes her first field visit since being appointed Special Envoy of UNHCR High Commissioner Antonio Guterres on Sunday (April 22) in Berrancabermeja, Ecuador.
The 36-year-old actress met with residents in a village located on the banks
of the San Miguel border. The isolated location makes them vulnerable
to the Colombian conflict and limits their access to rights.
Angelina was on hand to assess the current situation for refugees.
She also met with a man named Plinio, who is growing
beans as part of an agricultural project supported by UNHCR to
encourage self sufficiency and improve nutrition in the community.
The field visit comes a day after Angie and fiance Brad Pitt jetted to the Galapagos Islands with their kids.
