Has anyone heard rumors about Malick's new film (the McAdams, Affleck one) premiering at Cannes too?

Well, there's this [url="http://www.indiewire.com/article/did-the-2012-cannes-competition-lineup-just-get-leaked#"]leaked list[/url] on Indiewire that mentions The Burial. The article also points out there's probably no way it's a real or final list of the films that will be in competition. Still, there are some exciting names on it.

That leak was admitted to be a bad April Fools Day prank. Edited by kenmorefield

Bummer. I am cool with McAdams being deployed ASAP for the propagation of the Malick fetishsphere. Edited by M. Leary

I've said this elsewhere, but... people involved with the Malick film have [url="http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/david-cronenberg-says-cosmopolis-will-arrive-next-fall-terrence-malicks-the-burial-is-not-called-the-burial"]already denied that it is called The Burial[/url], so I don't trust any story that calls it that. If it turns out that *is* the title, than those people were either lying or else decided that the rumor mill had produced a good title.

[quote]Although Terrence Malick wasn't present to accept his award for Best Feature for "The Tree of Life," his producers Sarah Green and Bill Pohlad were -- and they were also able to clear up at least one of the mysteries associated with Malick's follow-up project starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams: It is not called "The Burial. "We don't know what 'The Burial' is," Green said. "Somebody else attached that name, but there is no movie that we're working on called 'The Burial.'" ("Lawless" and "Knight of Cups" are still kosher titles, luckily).[/quote] Edited by Overstreet

Nope. Doesn't look like any women "In competition."

Given that the Dardennes are heading the jury, any early bets on a likely winner?

There's also a new, longer cut of Sergio Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA being shown at Cannes.

I love that, despite doing my best to stay atop news in contemporary world cinema, Cannes is always able to find 20 or so filmmakers I've never heard of. So much potential for discovery. Chances are a couple of these unknown-to-me directors have made my favorite films of 2012!

Awards have been handed out and are posted all over the Web, but I thought it worth highlighting the Ecumenical Jury prize. That went to Thomas Vinterberg's [i]The Hunt[/i].

Details on that award and everything else here:
