The lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival has been announced, revealing which highly-anticipated films will be premiering and competing for the coveted Palme d’Or.
Cannes 2014 Lineup
Among the most buzzworthy films set to premiere at Cannes is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, which features an all-star cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell and Channing Tatum. The dark movie tells the story of how Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz’s brother, fellow Olympic Champion Dave Schultz, was killed by John DuPont, a paranoid schizophrenic.
The Homesman, directed and starring Tommy Lee Jones, will be competing for the Palme d’Or. Maps to the Stars, directed by David Cronenberg and starring Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska, will also be competiting for the festival’s ultimate prize. Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, will be Canne’s opening night film.
Not all films premiering and/or showing at Cannes are in-competition. Animated sequel How to Train Your Dragons 2 will be screening, but will not be competing. Coming Home, from director Zhang Yimou, will also be out of competition.
The 2014 Cannes Film Festival will run May 14-25. Presiding over the jury this year is Jane Campion.
