Thompson on Hollywood By Anne Thompson and Beth Hanna | Thompson on Hollywood April 18, 2013 at 1:21PM

The complete lineup for the 66th Cannes Film Festival was revealed Thursday morning, with the official selection including many expected titles from familiar faces from Cannes past. The American contingent includes the Coen brothers' period music movie "Inside Llewyn Davis" (CBS Films), also starring Mulligan along with Oscar Isaacs, James Gray's long-awaited "The Immigrant" (Weinstein Co.), starring Marion Cotillard, Steven Soderbergh's Liberace HBO movie "Behind the Candelabra," starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, and Alexander Payne's black-and-white "Nebraska," starring Bruce Dern.

The complete lineup for the 66th Cannes Film Festival was revealed Thursday morning, with the official selection including many expected titles from familiar faces from Cannes past. Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" will open the festival on May 15, with stars Leonardo Di Caprio and Carey Mulligan gracing the red carpet, after having already hit theaters stateside on May 10. Judging from the unforgettable party Luhrmann staged for his last Cannes opener, "Moulin Rouge," a major fete can be expected.

The American contingent includes the Coen brothers' period music movie "Inside Llewyn Davis" (CBS Films), also starring Mulligan along with Oscar Isaacs; James Gray's long-awaited "The Immigrant" (Weinstein Co.), starring Marion Cotillard; Steven Soderbergh's Liberace HBO movie "Behind the Candelabra," starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon; and Alexander Payne's black-and-white "Nebraska" (Paramount), starring Bruce Dern.

New to Cannes is Ryan Coogler, whose Sundance hit "Fruitvale Station" (Weinstein Co.) is playing out of competition, as is "Margin Call" writer-director J.C. Chandor's movie starring Robert Redford on a boat, "All is Lost" (Roadside Attractions) and James Franco's William Faulkner adaptation "As I Lay Dying." James Toback's Cannes doc "Seduced and Abandoned" rates a special screening, along with Polanski's auto racing doc "Weekend of a Champion" and Stephen Frears' HBO project "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight," about Ali's opposition to Vietnam.

"Only God Forgives"
Radius "Only God Forgives"

Also in the competition line-up are Nicolas Winding Refn's ultra-violent "Only God Forgives" (Radius/TWC), his follow-up to Cannes hit "Drive," also starring Ryan Gosling; Asghar Farhadi's "The Past," his follow-up to Oscar-winner "A Separation"; Arnaud Desplechin's "Jimmy P," and Roman Polanski's "Venus in Fur."

Missing in action are anything from Terrence Malick's various unfinished works in progress, as well as Steve McQueen's "Twelve Years a Slave" and Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," also not ready.

Sure to raise hackles among critics of Cannes' male bias is the presence of one woman filmmaker in the competition slate, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi with "Un Chateau En Italie." Meanwhile, several films directed by women are playing outside of the official competition, including Claire Denis' "The Bastards" and Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" (A24), which are included in the official Un Certain Regard section. And Palme D'Or winner Jane Campion is running the Cannes short film jury and accepting this year's Carrosse d'Or.
