It's Festival de Cannes time yet again and right beside the swanky yachts and expensive outfits, there is all kinds of money being spent on moving pictures as well. But while those deals are going down in the basements and hotel rooms of Europe's big summer market, there are a few of the biggest films of the year unspooling with all the pomp and circumstance of royal wedding right out front. The main attraction for Cannes-goers is the Official Palme d'Or Competition. We've got a preview for you today of a handful of the films premiering there as well as a few of the movies in the just slightly less important Un Certain Regard program as well.
Director Bong's follow-up to Snowpiercer is this creature feature (well that might be a stretch) about a girl and her strange animal friend. It stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Ahn Seo-hyun, Lily Collins, and Steven Yeun and will be released by Netflix (as has been a point of controversy for the festival).
