Two of the most anticipated movies are coming out this fall.

The wait is unbearable (sigh)

Blood ties,

First English motion picture for the talented and ambitious actor and director Guillaume Canet. 

This European drama is set in the 70’s and has an amazing cast in it, Clive Owen and Billy Crudup as leading males, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard playing the love interests, and let’s not forget James Caan and Matthias Schoenaerts. 

Can we expect this movie among the highly anticipated lineup for this 66th Cannes Film festival?

Let’s hope. And if not, they go to the Toronto Film Festival later this year.

CANNES 2013 : Are you excited?

I cannot wait for this, compared to the big American awards shows this one is more authentic, its selection is more raw to begin with and give a big push to unknown directors and movies from around the world.

Steven Spielberg will be the head of the jury, now the question is:

Which movies are going to be nominated ?

According to different sources, the highly anticipated Steve McQueen “12 years a slave” should be in the competition as well as Guillaume Canet First English movie “Blood Ties”. Some other hopeful such as Spike Jonze “Only god forgives” with Ryan Gosling Spike Jonze, “Her” with Joachim Phoenix and pour finir en beaute Baz Lurhmann “The Great Gasby” is going to open the Festival.imageimageimageimageimageimage

A lot of great things to looking forward to in May.
