Festival de Cannes is finally underway and there are a TON of intriguing independent films for sale.
Harvey Weinstein purchased the last two Best Picture winners (The King’s Speech and The Artist) in Cannes and you can be sure he’s on the lookout for more!!
Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the biggest titles out there, with Leo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill helping tell the true story of a party-boy stockbroker who spent 22 months in jail.
Hmmm… Sounds fun!
There are a bunch of depressing period pieces, including Jennifer Lawrence’s Serena which sounds like a Hunger Games spin-off in North Carolina and also the Jeremy Renner flick American Dream, about Polish immigrant prostitutes in the '20s and the magicians who love them.
We aren't making this stuff up!
Hawkeye isn’t the only Avenger represented.
Captain America Chris Evans stars in The Iceman, the true story of a notorious contract killer. The Hulk Mark Ruffalo stars next to Keira Knightley in the NYC set Can A Song Save Your Life?
And we’re TOTES excited to see ScarJo in Under the Skin, a
Species rip-off about a murderous alien disguised as the super hot Black Widow!
Team leader Joss Whedon gets work, too! He directed Nathan Fillion in a HIGHlarious remake of Much Ado About Nothing.
TwiHards, be not disappointed!!
KStew makes snuff films in Cali, Robert Pattinson captures Saddam Hussein in Mission: Blacklist, and Taylor Lautner plays
an athletic a shirtless bike messenger in Tracers.
We would buy THAT for a dollar!
And of course, there’s Zac Efron!!
He stars with Matthew McConaughey, John Cuasack, and Nicole Kidman in a death row whodunnit, The Paperboy.
Phew!! There is a lot happening right now in the French Riviera!!
We wish we were there
watching all these films working on our tan!!
