The festival will also kick off with Leonardo DiCaprio's HIGHLY anticipated performance in The Great Gatsby while the multi-talented James Franco will be there to show off his directing AND acting skillz in his upcoming film, As I Lay Dying!

George Clooney called it!
One of the most handsome leading men in Hollywood may be a bit of a psychic too because he correctly predicted that The Artist would take home some major Oscars.
While talking to Mario Lopez on the red carpet before the Academy Awards, the Descendants actor said

Fantastic choices..although where's Mike Mitchell's nomination for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked? LOLz!

All right, George, you REALLY need to stop being so modest! This film looks fantastic, and we have a feeling that all the Oscar buzz you're getting is well deserved!
Check out the newly released trailer (above) for The Descendants, which is very likely to land George Clooney a Best Actor nomination.
Between George's acting skillz, and the immaculate track record of director Alexander Payne (we LOOOVED Election!), we'd be pret-ty shocked if this one isn't a success on all fronts!
Will U check out The Descendants when it comes out next month? Do U think it's got Oscar written all over it???

We're really looking forward to this one!
Back in May, we saw the trailer for Election director Alexander Payne's new movie The Descendants, and we thought it looked great!
Now, director Payne has opened up about working with George Clooney, and he has only positive things to say about the man:

George Clooney and Alexander Payne?? Yes, please.
Yup, George will be starring in Alexander Payne's new movie The Descendants, which is about a father who is trying to raise his daughters after his wife slips into a coma.
Alexander also did Sideways, About Schmidt, and our personal fave, Election.
This is a win-win situation for everyone. Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above).
