The stars are set for Cannes!
On Thursday, the official selection for the upcoming 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival was announced. The event is scheduled to take place from May 17 to May 28 in France.
Among the movies unveiled in the lineup are David Cronenberg's Crimes of the Future, which stars recent Oscar nominee Kristen Stewart, Léa Seydoux, Viggo Mortensen and Scott Speedman. This is Cronenberg's first feature film since 2014's Maps to the Stars, which had a cast that included Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska.
Out of competition, long-awaited sequel Top Gun: Maverick, Baz Luhrmann's Elvis biopic, and Mad Max filmmaker George Miller's Three Thousand Years of Longing will each have their moment in the festival. Tom Cruise is expected to attend the film festival, which will also "pay a special tribute to Tom Cruise for his career."
