Cannes Poster Edit

There is no one now or since quite like Marilyn Monroe. Her enduring appeal is understandable, and this year she's going to Cannes.

The Cannes Film Festival has unveiled their poster for this year, and as usual, it's another beautiful piece of work. Marilyn Monroe is front and center, blowing out the candle for the 65th anniversary of the fest which should start announcing the films any day now....right? The one sheet comes in a long tradition of putting stars front and center, following Faye Dunaway last year and Juliette Binoche in 2010. Past years have seen beauties like Monica Vitti and Marlene Dietrich also grace the marketing materials for the fest. If the concept ain't broke, why fix it.

The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 16-27 and we can't wait. Check out the full poster below. [Eug]
