Films that will be shown and compete at Festival du Cannes 2022 have been announced


The Festival du Cannes 2022 is set to return to its past glory this May. The complete lineup of the films that will compete for the Palm d’Or have been announced. The festivities were canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic and the major French festival was scaled down last year. The 75th Cannes festival will begin on Tuesday, 17 May and end on Saturday, 28 May.

The 75th Festival du Cannes hopes to deliver a complete cinematic experience with eighteen films. Only three directors, whose films have been selected in the competition, are women. The official selection of films was announced on Thursday, April 14.

The festival is said to open with gore and horror with Michel Hazanavicius’ Z (Comme Z)-Final Cut starring Romain Duris, Berenice Bijo and Simone, the daughter of Hazanavicius and Bijo. It is a french remake of “One Cut of the Dead,” an acclaimed Japanese film. The Artist’s director, who won a Palme d’Or in 2011 and directed the zombie-comedy, is not in the competitive list of films.

The horror and gore will continue with Cronenberg’s “Crimes of the Future” starring Viggo Mortensen, Lea Saydoux and Kristen Stewart.

There is a retrospective of films starring Tom Cruise. His movie Top Gun: Maverick with Jennifer Connelly which saw endless delays will finally premiere at Cannes, just above a week before its opening in the U.S. Tom Cruise will discuss his four decade cinematic career on the Croisette. He will be 60-years old on July 3, 2022.

It is confirmed that The King will be present at Cannes. Director Baz Luhrmann will return to Cannes with “Elvis.” The movie starring Austin Butler, Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge and Natasha Bassett will also world premiere at the festival. These are among the “special films” that have been selected for screening at the prestigious Cannes Festival.
