While the official Cannes Film Festival lineup won't be revealed until April 19th, Jacques Audiard's "Rust & Bone" -- slated for a May 17th release in France, one day after the fest opens -- is pretty much considered a lock. Regardless, with the movie now just over a month away from release, we're going to be seeing a lot more, and to kick things off is the first official still from the film.

Marion Cotillard Rust And Bone

While the official Cannes Film Festival lineup won't be revealed until April 19th, Jacques Audiard's "Rust & Bone" -- slated for a May 17th release in France, one day after the fest opens -- is pretty much considered a lock. Regardless, with the movie now just over a month away from release, we're going to be seeing a lot more, and to kick things off is the first official still from the film.

Our friends over at Cinemateaser have the first image of Marion Cotillard in the film. Based on the short story collection by Craig Davidson, not much was known about the actual plot and whether it would focus on one single story or thread a few together, but the official synopsis has also been unveiled, and as expected, the storyline involving a maimed marine park worker played by Cotillard will form the central narrative. Here's what it's all about (apologies for the rough Google translation): 

It starts in the north. Ali ends up with Sam, age 5, on the arms. His son, he barely knows. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali finds refuge with her sister in Antibes. There is much better that she's hosting in the garage of his house, she takes care of the little and it's nice. Following a fight in a nightclub, his fate crosses that of Stephanie. He brings her back to her and leaves her phone. He is poor and she is beautiful and confident. She is a princess. All the objects. Stephanie is a trainer of killer whales at Marineland. It will take the show turns into a nightmare for a phone call in the night's meet again When Ali is found, the princess is packed in a wheelchair: she lost her legs and a lot of illusions. He will simply help, without compassion, without mercy. She will revive.

"Bullhead" star Matthias Schoenaerts co-stars with Alexandre Desplat providing the score. We're guessing a trailer is right around the corner to give us a better look at what is on the way.
