Anyone got frequent flier miles they want to share? Extra space in their suitcase? A steamer we can stowaway in? The official lineup for the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival was announced today — and yes, we already knew about most of the major films that would be premiering there, but it’s just making us really want to head to the south of France May 16-27 … even more than usual. The fest will feature your typical roster of amazing films from Europe and the rest of the world, but this year there will also be a lot of Hollywood’s favorite stars, albeit in artsy form, showcasing their flicks: Robert Pattinson in the David Cronenberg-directed Cosmopolis; Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund in On the Road; Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Ed Norton, Jason Schwartzman and Frances McDormand in the Wes Anderson flick Moonrise Kingdom; Brad Pitt in the mob movie Killing Them Softly; Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey in Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy; Reese Witherspoon and McConaughey in Mud. Yes, you read that right. Matthew McConaughey is in two Cannes films. And Kstew and RPattz are in direct competition for the Palm D’Or.
Man, we can’t wait to see the red carpet pics from the festival this year. Unless a fairy godmother appears in the next few days with some Air France tix for us.
And here is a tough choice for you to make:
