Woody Allen, Jean-Luc Godard (and No Terrence Malick) Among Selections for Cannes 2010

cannes_2010_poster.jpg

The line-up for the 2010 Cannes Film Festival was announced this morning from Paris, and first things first: There is no Terrence Malick on this list. His Brad Pitt/Sean Penn-starring cosmic mindblower Tree of Life won't be finished in time and/or the famously publicity-shy filmmaker just doesn't want to deal with the world media, so instead you get slouches like Woody Allen, Jean-Luc Godard, Stephen Frears and Oliver Stone (out of competition) and Mike Leigh, Abbas Kiarostami, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Apichatpong Weerasethakul (in competition). Doug Liman is the only American vying for the Palme d'Or, premiering his Valerie Plame film Fair Game, while his countrymen Lodge Kerrigan and Gregg Araki occupy spots in the Un Certain Regard and Midnight sections. Oh, and Blue Valentine is going -- sorry, France! Click through for the complete line-up, which will unspool in the week or so following Robin Hood's May 12 opening-night premiere.
