Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood To Open Cannes Film Festival 2010

Robin Hood This is our favorite movie time of the year – Cannes Film Festival! And the buzz about films, which will be shown at Cannes Film Festival 2010, has already begun. This year’s Cannes Fest will take place from 12th to 23rd May 2010 and Ridley Scott-directed Robin Hood will be screened at the opening of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday May 12th 2010, out of competition. The epic blockbuster starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max Von Sydow, Lea Seydoux and William Hurt opens the next day in many countries, and on Friday the 14th in the US. It is only Scott’s third appearance at the French festival. His early work, The Duellists, appeared in competition in 1977, winning the Best First Work award and Thelma and Louise screened out of competition in 1991. We still have to wait for the official festival line-up, which is already being speculated, but the Official Selection will be announced in mid-April. Cannes Film Festival 2010 first lineup speculations we’ve heard are: Woody Allen‘s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Oliver Stone‘s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Julian Schnabel‘s Miral and, as has already been said 100 times, Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life. Not bad at all! But we must wait… In case you didn’t know Tim Burton will head the jury at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. “After spending my early life watching triple features and 48-hour horror movie marathons, I’m finally ready for this.  It’s a great honour and I look forward, with my fellow jurors, to watching some great films from around the world.  When you think of Cannes you think of world cinema. And as films have always been like dreams to me, this is a dream come true,” Burton said. “It’s the first time an artist whose origins are in animation will preside over the jury of the Festival de Cannes. A filmmaker with a heart of gold and silver hands, Tim Burton is first and foremost a poet. He’s a magician of visual delights who turns the screen into a faery wonder. We hope his sweet madness and gothic humour will pervade the Croisette, bringing Christmas to all. Christmas and Halloween…” said Gilles Jacob, Festival President.
