Most films headed to the Cannes Film Festival keep their cards close to the chest, revealing as little as possible before making their grand premiere on the Croisette. Not so with "Grace Of Monaco." Olivier Dahan's upcoming drama overcame a rumored clash with Harvey Weinstein to land the opening slot at Cannes in May. And now a three-minute trailer and over fifty new images have dropped to show off the goods that Dahan and Weinstein are bringing to France in just a couple of months.

Grace Of Monaco

Most films headed to the Cannes Film Festival keep their cards close to the chest, revealing as little as possible before making their grand premiere on the Croisette. Not so with "Grace Of Monaco." Olivier Dahan's upcoming drama overcame a rumored clash with Harvey Weinstein to land the opening slot at Cannes in May. And now a three-minute trailer and over fifty new images have dropped to show off the goods that Dahan and Weinstein are bringing to France in just a couple of months.

Nicole Kidman leads an ensemble that includes Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Frank Langella and Milo Ventimiglia, in the 1962 set story detailing Grace Kelly's involvement with the dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle as the threat of invasion looms. But as the trailer reveals it's about much more too, with Kelly trying to balance her career, life as a royal, her role as a mother and more, all while being in the eye of the public. It looks lush, and the costumes are fine, but we're also getting an uneasy "Diana" mixed with "The Great Gatsby" vibe.

But that said, it is unspooling at the most prestigious festival in the world, so that says something. No set release date yet, but if this wows the critics at Cannes, you can bet Harv will hold off until the awards season. Trailer and pics below.
