Soooooo, reports that a new David Lynch movie starring Laura Dern was premiering at Cannes may have been a false alarm. But the festival is always ready to quench our thirst for movie theater. Cannes’ 2022 lineup features some of the year’s biggest premieres, including David Cronenberg’s first film in nearly a decade, Future Crimes. Among the authors who will begin their work on La Croisette will also be Claire Denis, who will create her war thriller The stars at noon on its own ground; Korean icon Park Chan-wook with his romantic mystery Decision to leave; The great American Kelly Reichardt with To show up, his fourth film with Michelle Williams; George Miller with the equally epic madmax monitoring Three thousand years of nostalgia; and Ethan Coen, after his brother’s solo macbeth with a documentary by Jerry Lee Lewis, mind problem. Films by Denis, Park and Cronenberg will be among the premieres in competition alongside works by directors such as Arnaud Desplechin and James Gray. The first out of competition, as previously announced, will be that of Baz Luhrmann Elvis and Joseph Kosinski Superior gun after, Top Gun: Maverick. Find the full program below.
