It looks like Marion Cotillard -- featuring in both James Gray's "The Immigrant" and Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" -- won't be the only one at Cannes this year with two movies to show off. Fellow French actress Lea Seydoux will strut her stuff in the main competition with the three hour (!) lesbian romance drama "Blue Is The Warmest Color." But flying a bit more under the radar on the Un Certain Regard slate is "Grand Central," where she'll co-star opposite "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim, in another romance that is throwing off some sparks.

It looks like Marion Cotillard -- featuring in both James Gray's "The Immigrant" and Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" -- won't be the only one at Cannes this year with two movies to show off. Fellow French actress Léa Seydoux will strut her stuff in the main competition with the three hour (!) lesbian romance drama "Blue Is The Warmest Color." But flying a bit more under the radar on the Un Certain Regard slate is "Grand Central," where she'll co-star opposite "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim, in another romance that is throwing off some sparks.

The first clip and a couple of new pics have dropped for the movie, and it shows a pretty subtle but undoubtedly charged energy. From writer-director Rebecca Zlotowski ("Belle Épine"), the film will find Rahim playing a man addicted to danger who starts working in a nuclear plant and becomes exposed to dangerous levels of radiation, while Seydoux (who starred in "Belle Épine") will play a colleague that he begins a passionate affair with. And yes, that passion is already felt here in the first clip.

As always, no release date or distribution stateside, but keep an eye on word from Cannes as the movie will premiere next Saturday.
