More Pics Of Marion Cotillard & Matthias Schoenaerts In Jacques Audiard's Cannes Entry 'Rust And Bone'

Now that Jacques Audiard’s “Rust and Bone” has been officially announced as part of the Cannes Film Festival lineup we can start to get a little bit more excited about it (as if we weren’t excited already). If Audiard delivers here, it could mark another fine effort after the one-two punch of “A Prophet” and “The Beat That My Heart Skipped,” and we’ve got high hopes for it as a result.

Now that Jacques Audiard’s “Rust and Bone” has been officially announced as part of the Cannes Film Festival lineup we can start to get a little bit more excited about it (as if we weren’t excited already). If Audiard delivers here, it could mark another fine effort after the one-two punch of “A Prophet” and “The Beat That My Heart Skipped,” and we’ve got high hopes for it as a result.

Starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts (“Bullhead”), the film will follow the relationship between a homeless man and a killer whale trainer who (SPOILER ALERT!) loses her legs in a horrific accident. The film will be competing for the Palme d’Or, and will hope to go one better than “A Prophet” which was edged out by “The White Ribbon” in a very strong 2009 festival (and Audiard is up against another Michael Haneke film this year, "Amour").

With Cannes just a few weeks away, expect to see a lot more material arriving for the films in competition – “Rust and Bone” has delivered with a batch of new images which you can check out below. Nothing particularly revelatory, but we do get our first look at the killer whale – so that’s something. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 16-27. Sony Pictures Classics will release "Rust And Bone" later this year. [C7nema]
