The 66th Locarno International Film Festival, kicking off August 7, has unveiled its lineup. Included in the fest's selections are Richard Curtis' time-travel romantic comedy "About Time," starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson; Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur's ("The Deep") "2 Guns," starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg; and the world premiere of South Korean filmmaker Hong Sangsoo's "Our Sunhi."

The competition lineup has a strong Asian presence, with Kiyoshi Kurosawa's ('Tokyo Sonata") sci-fi entry "Real," and former Hou Hsaio-hsien assistant Chang Tso-chi's coming-of-age tale "A Time in Quchi."

US entries include SXSW hit "Short Term 12," starring Brie Larsen as a foster care worker battling her own demons, also in competition; and Matt Johnson's excellent "The Dirties," which played Slamdance earlier this year, and looks at the violent ramifications of school bullying, will be repping in the Cineastes of the Present section.

The festival's full lineup is here.
