The Salvation
What happens when you put together Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green in a western? Well, you capture our attention, that's for sure. And while our Jessica Kiang didn't quite fall for "The Salvation" at Cannes—calling it in her review a genre movie that's "so faithful as to veer dangerously close to pastiche"—it's still got enough intriguing ingredients to make it one the rest of us will catch up with anyway, if only to see Mikkelsen playing cowboy.

Mads Mikkelsen, MICHAEL KOHLHAAS BY ARNAUD DES PALLIÈRES
Itself loosely based on a true story, the 19th century novella by Heinrich von Kleist, “Michael Kohlhaas," has been adapted several times for screen, notably by Volker Schlöndorff in 1969, even spawning “The Jack Bull," a pretty good HBO restaging starring Johns Cusack and Goodman, in 1999. But with Schlöndorff himself telling us in an interview that he considered his version his "biggest failure” it would have seemed that there was still room for the definitive, high-profile, straight-up adaptation.

Mads Mikkelsen, MICHAEL KOHLHAAS BY ARNAUD DES PALLIÈRES
It's hard to think of any other 48-year-old actors having the kind of moment Mads Mikkelsen currently is. A Cannes winner for his turn in "The Hunt," an American network TV star thanks to his excellent work in "Hannibal," and currently turning heads on the Croisette thanks to the western "The Salvation," pretty much everything the actor touches is worth tuning in to see what he does. And so it goes with "Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas," and today, we have an exclusive clip from the film.

The Salvation
As much as we love the western genre, it appears Danish director Kristian Levring, (who was the fourth signatory of the Dogme95 movement, film history fans) loves it more. His "The Salvation," which plays in the Midnight Screenings section of Cannes, is a testament to that--a loving and in fact overly adulatory genre film which is not so much a take on the revenge Western as a deeply faithful recreation of it, at times so faithful as to veer dangerously close to pastiche.

The Salvation
Competition is obviously the most prestigious place to play during the Cannes Film Festival, but the riches of the fest is such that the sidebar sections often have terrific discoveries too. Two new first looks have arrived from two films playing outside competition. The first is Lisandro Alonso’s “Jauja” starring Viggo Mortensen. It’s playing in the Un Certain Regard section alongside films like Ryan Gosling’s debut “Lost River” and Ned Benson’s “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

The Salvation
The last time Mads Mikkelsen was at Cannes, he walked away with a Best Actor award for his turn in "The Hunt." Now two years later, he'll be back walking the red carpet on the Croisette, but in something a bit different. Instead of a Competition film, the actor will be hoping to thrill audiences in the Midnight Screening selection "The Salvation." And the first trailer is here.

Hannibal
Already burned through "House Of Cards"? Trying to figure out what to get into next with only two episodes left to go of "True Detective"? You might want to give "Hannibal" a spin. Though not perfect, the first season of the NBC series was a pretty entertaining and smart piece of pulp overall, led by a pitch perfect performance by Mads Mikkelsen in the title role. And with a cliffhanger ending that saw the tables turned on FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), it's a helluva starting point for the second season. Only we didn't realize just how bracing that kick off to the new batch of episodes will be.

Doctor Strange
With the recent trailer for James Gunn’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and the forthcoming Edgar Wright-helmed “Ant-Man,” it’s clear Marvel Studios is pulling from the deep bench now and while it remains to be seen how the casual moviegoing audience is going to respond to a gun-toting talking raccoon in space, the comics giant-turned-movie company is only focused on getting more strange.

Mads Mikkelsen will probably do something awesome in brewing true story tale "First Law." Set to be directed by Diego Rafecas, and co-starring Armand Assante and Adriana Barraza, the Argentina set story follows "two brothers — one under the wing of a shaman, the other working for a corrupt mega-corporation — who must choose where their loyalties lie when their ancestral home faces destruction."
