Are They Headed To Cannes? 'Cosmopolis' & 'Rust And Bone' Get May Release Dates In France

Last night, Thierry Fremaux set the movie world abuzz, announcing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" as the opening film for the 65th Cannes Film Festival. It's a film we listed as a strong contender for the red carpet in our predictions for the fest -- could two more movies from our list be making the journey? All signs point to yes.

Cosmopolis Rust And Bone

Last night, Thierry Fremaux set the movie world abuzz, announcing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" as the opening film for the 65th Cannes Film Festival. It's a film we listed as a strong contender for the red carpet in our predictions for the fest -- could two more movies from our list be making the journey? All signs point to yes.

Our friends over at Cinema Teaser have alerted us to a couple of interesting new release date announcements. According to Le Film Francais (which is essentially like a French version of Variety) Jacques Audiard's "Rust And Bone" and David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" have been given May 17th and May 23rd release dates respectively, putting them right in the middle of the Cannes Film Festival. At this point, premieres for both films seems like a certainty.

In the case of "Cosmopolis," before the end of the year, David Cronenberg told us that he was finishing the sound mix for the film (which pretty much means it's nearing the finish line), while producer Gregoire Melin told Cineuropa last month that he is “counting on” the film showing up on the Croisette. Now with a release date pegged, it seems all the pieces are lining up. David Cronenberg hasn't been back to Cannes since "A History Of Violence" in 2005, so they'll be glad to have him back.

As for "Rust And Bone," it looks to be the case a movie being finished much earlier than expected. Jacques Audiard's latest was originally slated for an October 24th release in France, but the sudden shift ahead indicates the movie is locked, though May 17th is a Thursday (the day after the opening of the festival). As our French friends note, most movies in France open on a Wednesday, so could "Rust And Bone" be making its splashy premiere the same day it hits theaters in France? We'll soon see, but our guess is that will be the case.

Much more to come we're sure. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 16-27.
