The Highly Anticipated Movies Premiering at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival

The Highly Anticipated Movies Premiering at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival

Apr 18, 2013

 

The full 2013 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and we couldn't be more thrilled. If you've had a trip to the Riviera on your bucket list, now is the time to actually buy those tickets you've been dreaming about.
 
We already know that Cannes will open on May 15 with Baz Luhrmann's 3D adaptation of The Great Gatsby — a Roaring '20s celebration for the Hollywood jet-set crowd. Several filmmakers will be debuting projects this year, including the Coen brothers, Alexander Payne, Steven Soderbergh and Roman Polanski.
 
The 1960s-set tale Inside Llewyn Davis from the Coens will detail the heyday of New York's folk-music scene. Soderbergh's Behind the Candelabra is adapted from the novel of the same name written by the pianist's live-in lover Scott Thorson, played by Matt Damon in the film. Michael Douglas will don the cape to become the "one-man Disneyland." Nebraska is Payne's father-son road-trip film, starring Bruce Dern, Bob Odenkirk, Stacy Keach and Will Forte. Roman Polanski has two films screening this year: Venus in Fur, an adaptation of the David Ives play including references to the Leopold von Sacher-Masoch novella of the same name, and his documentary about Formula One racer Jackie Stewart, Weekend of a Champion. Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn will team up again for Only God Forgives, about a gangster in Bangkok. We haven't stopped squirming since the intense trailer first appeared.
 
Here's the full list of films at Cannes this year. Share your most anticipated picks, below. [via Variety]
