Cannes Film Festival list has been Announced


The Guardian’s film blog has posted the list of film playing at this years Cannes Film Festival. The list includes the 4 hour (2 movies running together) Che movie by Steven Soderbergh (starring Benicio Del Toro). The two films are set to be released in 2008 . This is an epic project from a director who has been holding off on some serious films for a while (making the “Ocean” films the last few years and some small budget, unheard of films). (Soderbergh won the Best Director Oscar for “Traffic,” which is an unappreciated film)

Other notable filmmakers are Clint Eastwood and Charlie Kaufman (I am pumped for his film starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman).

Out of Competition will be the new Indiana Jones film, “Kung Fu Panda” (not so exciting), and Woody Allen’s new project “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” Woody starring Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, and Javier Bardem.

The president of the committee will be Sean Penn, so political stuff will probably win a lot of awards.
