The Cannes Film Festival announces some additions to its lineup...

...but no sign of 'The Tree of Life'. Here's the story from The Hollywood Reporter:

As the countdown to the 63rd Festival de Cannes continues, organizers announced a special screening of Lucy Walker's "Countdown to Zero" on Friday, among other late additions to the lineup.

Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai's "Chongqing Blues," previously in Un Certain Regard lineup, and Hungarian helmer Kornel Mondruczo's "Tender Son -- the Frankenstein Project" will round out the 18-strong Competition selection.

Also representing China will be Croisette veteran Jia Zhang Ke with his latest film "I Wish I Knew," which will screen in Un Certain Regard alongside late entry "Carancho" from Argentinean director Pablo Trapero.

Andrei Ujica's Romanian film "The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu" will complete Out of Competition among the more glitzy Hollywood studio fare set to screen in that category this year.

The Festival de Cannes is set to run May 12-23.

-Do you think Terrence Malick's latest will end up at Cannes or not when all is said and done?


  1. Personally, I still think it would be a last minute addition, but I won't be surprised if it doesn't show and waits for Venice and/or Toronto...

  2. On an unrelated note, I saw Casino Jack and it is a potential Oscar contender, another great effort from Gibney.
