This Year's Cannes 'Could Be' Roster

Ocean's 13, Earth and The Valley of Elah are reportedly battling it out for the opening night spot at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Earth is a feature length offshoot of the BBC's Planet Earth series (What?!? Is this a remix, deleted scenes or best of compilation? Sounds like it might be a bit of a swizz) and wouldn't have existed in this form at all if all that March of the Penguins ballyhoo hadn't happened, mark my words.

Other films expected to screen include Grind House, No Country for Old Men, Mr. Lonely, Into the Wild and Paranoid Park. At least two of those weren't directed by Harmony Korine, Sean Penn or Gus van Sant, so it's not all bad.

No news on Son of Rambow yet, but I'd love to see it in competition.
