With the actual schedule released today (cue charts and diagrams as attendees try to work out how to be in eight places at one time), the final pieces are falling into place for this year's Cannes Film Festival, and it's shaping up to be a terrific couple of weeks. The initial lineup was already impressive, but the addition of a couple of titles we were surprised not to see in the original announcement has made the selection even more an embarrassment of riches. As such, we were hard pressed to pick a top ten, but finally settled on the following choices, that, along with the honorable mentions, we feel represent the strongest of what is a very solid lineup. It should be noted that there's a great showing by the U.S. in this selection, as there is for French-language movies, which is reflective of the festival overall. With Steven Spielberg the head of the Cannes Competition jury too, it feels like Franco-American relations are at an all-time high, cinematically speaking at least.

Making movies isn't easy. Long hours, lots of down time, egos, creative differences and more can make the experience an arduous, stressful task, creating enemies for life and anecdotes galore to fill future pages of Vanity Fair (hello, "World War Z"). But it doesn't always have to be that way, and when it comes to Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, the pair are total bros for life.

Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives
While the story behind "Only God Forgives" will be the reunion between "Drive" director and star, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, is it too early to declare that Kristin Scott Thomas might steal the show? Possibly, but in these three new clips from the movie she stands tall above the whiskey glass smashing and chase sequences.

Yes, the Cannes Film Festival has dominated our minds today, and why not? It's the biggest thing on the calendar in the cinematic year, and this year's lineup is pretty spectacular, with lots of surprises (and a few omissions) but two movies high on our must-watch list are James Gray's newly titled "The Immigrant" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives."

Only God Forgives, Ryan Gosling
Yes, so the Cannes Film Festival lineup dropped this morning and there is a lot to talk about (and we'll be getting to that soon) but there are two things we know: Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" will be there, and it's still one of our most anticipated movies in the south of France. And even better, hot on the heels of the Cannes announcement this morning comes a brand new trailer that is just as eye-poppingly badass as the first teaser.

As usual, sifting the actual fact from the speculation when it comes to the line-up of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has been a little tricky. We know the opener -- Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," the closer -- "Zulu," with Forest Whitaker and Orlando Bloom, and as of yesterday, the Un Certain Regard headliner, in the shape of Sofia Coppola's "Bling Ring."
