Also included is Alain Giraudie's Cannes entry "Stranger By the Lake," and Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties," starring Marion Cotillard and Clive Owen. 

Two films starring the late Cory Monteith ("Glee"), who died last month from a drug overdose at age 31, are also part of the lineup. Josh C. Waller's "McCanick," in which Monteith plays a hustler struggling with a drug addiction (see picture below), and "All the Wrong Reasons," announced previously, where Monteith plays a department store worker.

Check out the complete list of added titles at Indiewire.

    Miyazaki's film is about the inventor of the Japanese Zero, the fighter plane that became Japan's most lethal weapon against American combatants in WWII. I wonder what the film's take on the war is. Given Miyazaki's past films, I'm guessing it won't be too nationalistic. But I won't know until I see it. When's it coming to the U.S.?
