Both Alexander Payne's Downsizing and George Clooney's Suburbicon have been well received after the Paramount presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week.
Check here for the reactions coming out of Vegas for these two films which both feature Matt Damon and which could both find the Telluride program in September.
Suburbicon will be released Nov. 3rd. Downsizing will be released Dec. 22nd.

CANNES #70 POSTER FEATURES CLAUDIA CARDINALE
There it is. The official poster for the 2017 edition of the Cannes Film Festival. The poster features Cannes favorite Claudia Cardinale. Telluride fans may remember that Cardinale was a tribute recipient in T-ride in 2010.
Here's coverage of the poster selection and reveal from The Film Stage.

Louis Garrel as Jean-Luc Godard in Redoubtable
His last film, The Search, played Cannes and was drubbed critically and resulted in a rather quiet disappearance and certainly no berth at Telluride but his latest, Redoubtable, which focuses on a real life love story from the life of film pioneer Jean Luc-Goddard has been getting significant pre-Cannes buzz.
Just this last couple of days, we began seeing stories focusing on the film, including some pics (see above). That indicates to me that Redoubtable is a likely Cannes selection. We'll find out, in all likelihood, on April 13th when the bulk of the Cannes lineup is announced.
Check out the french teaser and other details here from Indiwire and here from The Playlist.

Here's the latest...Paul Thomas Anderson's new film set in the world of high fashion and starring Daniel Day Lewis has been dated for release on Dec. 25th. The Film Stage reports that its working title is Phantom Thread.
Insert obligatory note here about its unlikelihood for Telluride (for a number of reasons) as well as the expected wish that it would magically screen there.
Here's the story from The Film Stage.
That's a wrap for this Thursday. Have a good weekend and come back for more on Monday.
