Confirmed: Solo to be Presented at the Cannes Film Festival in May

The Cannes International Film Festival, to be held from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 19 May will unveil its selection on Thursday 12 April at 11am.

The movie, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young smuggler Han Solo and Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, also stars Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and Thandie Newton (Westworld),.

It would mark the third "Star Wars" franchise film to premiere in Cannes, after 2002's "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones" and "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" in 2005. The first, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", opened in December 2016 and grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. Ron Howard, who stepped in following the firing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller last June, directed the film.

"Unfortunately, our vision and process weren't aligned with our partners on this project". Even with all the rigorous process the cast and the people behind the camera went through, the Cannes inclusion is certainly a nice news to hear.

The psychological thriller by Oscar-nominated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi centres on Carolina (Cruz), a woman whose life is turned upside-down when she returns from South America to her hometown of Madrid with her Argentinian husband and children in tow.

We are very proud to be presented both at the opening and the competition in the upcoming Cannes Film Festival'. In 2004 Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar's "Bad Education" with Gael Garcia Bernal opened the annual event.
