The 2011 Cannes Film Festival lineup!

100%

The Cannes Film Festival unveiled its lineup for 2011 and it's very much what you would expect from Cannes. There's the Woody Allen film (MIDNIGHT IN PARIS), the big Hollywood blockbuster playing out of competition (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES), the Terrence Malick film that has been rumored for about three years (TREE OF LIFE) and the latest movies from Pedro Almodovar, Lars von Trier and Gus Van Sant. The "Cannes Formula" aside, it's a very strong lineup this year with THE BEAVER, the Ryan Gosling action flick DRIVE, Sundance hit MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE and the latest Takashi Miike all showing up.

I'm guessing we might also see some KUNG FU PANDA 2 shenanigans on the Croisette as DreamWorks is fond of pimping its May releases in Cannes (remember Jerry Seinfeld doing the zipline thing for BEE MOVIE?).

Here's a full list of all the movies playing at Cannes and the categories they're screening in:

Wish I could be there...

There are some great names on this years list:
The Tree of Life is my must see for a long time now.
Obviously Drive - Gosling and Refn should own, with a little help of Hendricks' cleavage.
Hara-kiri should be awesome as well, Melancholia, The Skin That I Inhabit, Martha Marcy May Marlene... I just wish there would have been more info about the rest of these selections.

Refn's Drive top of my list

Now there's an intriguing list of films - can't wait to see Drive, Tree of Life and Melancholia. Hell if I had a free pass I'd gladly watch every film on the list

I remember a few years ago when "X-Men: The Last Stand" debuted at Cannes and the negative reviews started rolling in.

Another one I was excited for was "Southland Tales" but then it was pretty much booed out of Cannes.
