The Cannes Film Festival is only two weeks away, and with the sheer amount of films coming to the south of France growing larger by the day, the trailers advertising them have ramped into high gear. Earlier in the month a teaser trailer was released for director Paolo Sorrentino's "La Grande Bellezza," and now the official trailer has just gone live, and while it’s in Italian, it definitely shows Sorrentino returning to the roots he laid down with his earlier film, "Il Divo."

The Cannes Film Festival is only two weeks away, and with the sheer amount of films coming to the south of France growing larger by the day, the trailers advertising them have ramped into high gear.  Earlier in the month a teaser trailer was released for director Paolo Sorrentino's "La Grande Bellezza," and now the official trailer has just gone live, and while it’s in Italian, it definitely shows Sorrentino returning to the roots he laid down with his earlier film, "Il Divo." 

The trailer’s closest point of comparison is Federico Fellini's "8 ½," only here it follows a journalist hoping to cling to the last vestiges of his youth. The trailer is sweeping and comprises all the best of Italia, including beautiful women, partying, and gorgeous scenery. Fans of the country, art house films, and Sorrentino’s past work ("The Consequences Of Love," "The Family Friend," the aforementioned "Il Divo" and the Sean Penn film "This Must Be the Place" to name a few) will want to keep an eye on "La Grande Bellezza," which looks to be something of a detour for the filmmaker.  

No American distributor or release date has been announced, but the film opens in Italy on May 21st. The Cannes Film Festival runs May 15th to 26th. Check out the trailer, new pics and the poster below. [CineRepublic]
