The Captive
Can Atom Egoyan get his groove back? It has been a while since the director showcased the skill he brought to films like "The Sweet Hereafter" or "Felicia's Journey," and last weekend's "Devil's Knot" was another in a string of recent pictures that were tepidly received by both critics and the public. But "The Captive" finds him in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and the first clip is here highlighting the drama to come.

The Cannes Film Festival kicks off next week, and perhaps less so than in other years, there are always questions about the lineup. From the diversity (or lack of it) or why some films are playing in Competition while others aren't, it can seem somewhat mysterious how programmers for the world's most prestigious fest make their choices.

La Chambre Bleue
A longtime presence on the arthouse scene (“Jimmy P.," “Venus in Fur”) with occasional ventures into the mainstream (“Quantum of Solace”), actor Mathieu Almaric managed in 2010 to take Cannes by storm, winning Best Director and a FIPRESCI prize for his film "Tournée." An accomplished if uneven work, it nonetheless proved a promising indication for projects to come, and now we’ve got a new look at Almaric’s return Cannes entry.

The Salvation
Competition is obviously the most prestigious place to play during the Cannes Film Festival, but the riches of the fest is such that the sidebar sections often have terrific discoveries too. Two new first looks have arrived from two films playing outside competition. The first is Lisandro Alonso’s “Jauja” starring Viggo Mortensen. It’s playing in the Un Certain Regard section alongside films like Ryan Gosling’s debut “Lost River” and Ned Benson’s “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

Grace Of Monaco
Premiering next week as the opening selection for the Cannes Film Festival, Oliver Dahan’s Grace Kelly biopic “Grace Of Monaco” has taken a twisty path towards the festival. First it missed its intended Fall 2013 release date to allegedly allow more time for the film to be completed, but when it received a less-than-friendly spring date that’s when word leaked about U.S. distributor Harvey Weinstein’s unhappiness with the cut Dahan delivered, a struggle that led Weinstein to pull the film completely from the distributor’s schedule when Dahan refused to incorporate Weinstein’s “catastrophic” notes into a new cut of the film. With the Croisette on the horizon, it appears both parties are finally coming to a resolution on their troubles.

Winter Sleep
Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan seems to be luxuriating in longer runtimes lately. Three years ago, he hit Cannes with the nearly three hour "Once Upon A Time In Anatolia," and took home a Grand Jury Prize for his efforts. This year, he's back in Competition with "Winter Sleep," easily the longest of the Palme d'Or contenders, running three hours and sixteen minutes. And the first trailer for the movie is here.
