Walking around this 12-day festival, I saw a lot of shitty movie pitches, posters, pictures, but I also saw some pretty decent up-and-coming stuff, some of which you can check out below (the shitty stuff is below it). Excuse the photo quality, but I did the best I could with what I had (which wasn't much) As per usual, click any of the pics below to ENLARGE....

SHIT YOU WILL LIKELY NEVER SEE


If you can tell the difference between these so-called movie posters, I'll give you a dollar. My favorite part of both posters? The "credits not contractual" disclaimer at the bottom. Have they even shot these films???


"Fight. Dance. Love." Not necessarily in that order.


Not since DeNiro and Pacino's showdown in HEAT has there been such "buzz" about acting luminaries joining forces for a motion picture. Van Dein. Rooker. Skeleton Man! Be there or be an asshole.


Starring Ernest Borgnine and Bobb Hopkins. Not Bob Hoskins....Bobb Hopkins. Don't ask, man...just dig the lamest tagline of all-time: "Revenge never tasted so sweet"


And you thought Harvey Keitel's BAD LIEUTENANT was a bad cop, check out this guy!!! Instead of masturbating to some teens in Jersey, this guy apparently pulls a "golden shower" on some mallrats from Pakoopsie. Great tagline: "Minding other people's business!"


The answer to the eternal question: "What ever happened to that other guy from TITANIC?" Es tu, Billy Zane?


About 70% of the movies attempting to find homes at the Cannes marketplace this year were for either "zombie" or "shark" movies. This film takes the trend of reality TV and mixes it with the trend of zombie movies. Fascinating!


They're not pissed, folks. They're not just angry or miffed or peeved or impatient. These fuckin' sharks are RAAAAAAAGING!!! Sign...me...up.


Hmmmm, doesn't remind me of any other famous movie posters, that's for sure. Who's the Cannes Jury President this year? Quentin Tarantino, you say? Hmmmm....BAD EGGS, indeed.


For some people, co-starring in films like X-MEN and UNDERWORLD would be a good career move. For others...well...


Michael Rooker as...The Eliminator! 'Nuff said.


No joke can be as funny as the fact that Jean-Claude Van Damme is still making movies today. And directing some of them too!!


Let's see: CHINATOWN, BONNIE & CLYDE, NETWORK...EL PADRINO??? Makes sense to me. Click the poster to really get a sense of how little money Faye Dunaway apparently has left in her bank account.


You can't really see it well, but this film has my favorite tagline of the festival: "Big brother is no longer just watching...he's killing!" Yeah, bitch!
