Number One Selection For Directors' Fortnight At Cannes Announced

The Host is the first film announced for the Directors' Fortnight at Cannes this year. Directed by Bong Joon-Ho and featuring a monster created by Weta, I last mentioned it when the trailer launched. I dare say I'll have plenty more to say once I've seen the film - at the moment, I'm banking on this one being one of the best films of the year.

Some odd-bods have also started reporting that Lars von Trier's My Man The President will also be unveiled in the Directors' Fortnight, but according to the Danish Film Institute, next year's Cannes is the likely time and place for a premiere.

And, I would hope, in competition.
