Pictures and Buzz/New Cannes

Good Morning!


Several Telluride contenders had new images up this week from what I think is almost a sure thing: "Rust and Bone" to the less likely: "The We and the I" and "The Life of Pi" to the flatly improbable (but it'd be cool): "Django Unchained".  Here are links to those posts and images starting with the most likely...


New pics for this Jacques Audiard film from The Playlist and if you haven't looked at the international trailer or

Frankly, I think Ms. Cotillard is lined up for another Oscar nomination based on the trailer alone.

Ang Lee's new film created a lot of buzz this week at its CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas.  Check out this story from the LA Times 24 Frames blog:

Also look at this post from

Why is it a Telluride possible?

1) Ang Lee has a T-ride history: "Brokeback Mountain" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
2) 20th Century Fox wants to position it for Oscar
3) Telluride's recent past has had Fox 2000 and 20th Century Fox films in Telluride: "The Descendants", "Never Let Me Go". "127 Hours", and "Black Swan".
4) The release date is set in December...


Michel Gondry's new film could also play in Telluride, though I think it's less likely than "Life of Pi".
The Playlist also had a post and image from the film posted this week here:

Gondry has been in Telluride before in 2004 with a special presentation of his work to the point hosted by Elvis Mitchell.  His new film is also a Cannes selection in the Director's Fortnight category.  That is not a usual locus for films that play Cannes and then go on to Telluride, however.


OK...this falls into the category of "Won't be in Telluride but wouldn't it be cool if it was?".  The first couple of stills from Tarantino's next project which is also due to hit theaters in December.  Check the post out at The Playlist:


Meanwhile, just this morning the 65th Cannes Film Festival has added 7 new titles to various programs none of which appear to be particularly likely to end up in Telluride in September.  Take a look at the announced films from The Hollywood Reporter here:
