Cannes Preview: First Official Look At Sean Penn In 'This Must Be The Place'; Clip From 'Miss Bala'

Based on that pic alone, via InContention, we'd already be lining up for "This Must Be the Place," but with the great cast and talent behind the film on top of it, it's yet another exciting entry in what is shaping up to be one helluva year on the Croisette. Starring Sean Penn, Frances McDormand, Harry Dean Stanton, Kerry Condon, Judd Hirsch and Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson, the film, directed by Paolo Sorrentino ("Il Divo"), centers on Penn's character, an aging rock star, who becomes obsessed in tracking down the Nazi criminal who tortured his father. Sounds pretty great, right? Well, if that's not enough, David Byrne is collaborating with Will Oldham on the soundtrack. Game, set, match. The film will premiere In Competition at Cannes; bigger pic of Penn and that hair below.

Meanwhile over at the Un Certain Regard section, director Gerardo Naranjo will be unspooling his film "Miss Bala." The action film is co-produced by Canana Films, the Mexican production company owned by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, and centers on a woman who dreams of becoming a beauty queen amidst the pervasive reach of organized crime-addled Mexico. A clip for the film has debuted and don't worry about language -- it's creepily effective either way. Looks like we'll have to clear some space on our calendar for this one. Check out the clip below and thanks to Jorge at C7nema for the heads up.
