The Great Gatsby

The 66th Cannes film festival is almost upon us, with Steven Spielberg heading up the jury and Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby opening the festivities come May 15 - a rare move from the festival of festivals given that the film will already have opened in the US on May 10. Though we knew a couple of other films that were showing, it's only today that the full list has been announced over on the official Cannes website.

French director Jérôme Salle's will see his first English-language film, Zulu, close the festival, the Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker action thriller making use of the same name Cy Endfield did back in 1963. The only difference is that this time there'll be fewer spears and more modern day South African police investigations.

Nicolas Winding Refn's follow-up to the critically adored crime drama Drive comes in the form of crime drama Only God Forgives, a Thailand set tale which features Ryan Gosling taking the world on with his ever-so-bloodied fists. Check out the red-band trailer - with the emphasis on red - over here if you haven't already. 

Elsewhere, Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring will open Un Certain Regard - hosted by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg - and in so doing won't compete for the cherished Palme D'Or. Her tale of rich girls gone really rather bad stars Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Gavin Rossdale and, um, Paris Hilton. And the Coen Brothers will bring Inside Llewyn Davis along for good measure.

Le Festival De Cannes will take place from May 15 to May 26, and Team Empire will be there reporting on it all, as ever.
