This colorful and eye-popping new poster for Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 1984” (June 2020) was tweeted out via Jenkins’ Twitter account. In that tweet she captioned, “By now you’ve heard: WB isn’t going to Hall H this year. We’re so sad to miss you there!

I have been onboard this Joaquin Phoenix/Todd Phillips “Joker” movie since the very beginning. Phoenix is one of the great actors of the last 15 or so years. His decision to play the Joker, a man haunted by mental anguish and demons he cannot get rid of, very much defines, not just the iconic roles that have made the actor one of the greats of cinema, but his own real-life tumultuous personality which culminated in an infamous public mental breakdown in 2009 and 2010. Phoenix is an eccentric guy, he oozes with authenticity when it comes to the “tortured artist” cliche that has inflicted the greats (Brando, De Niro).Read More
I will be there again this year, covering the fest for World of Reel.
The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 17-28.
What a beauty of a poster to kick start what will most likely be another great Cannes Film Festival -the 66th one! Movie buffs will revel in the kiss shared between Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward from 1963's little seen A New Kind Of Love. A beautiful poster that took my breath away the first time I saw it. Director Melvin Shavelson's film might not be a masterpiece but it is remembered for this great kiss between Woodward and Newman. Leave it to the folks over at the Cannes Festival to make art out of advertisement. Now if only I can find a way to get that poster. As for the fest itself, it starts on the 15th of May and ends on the 26th of that month - it was recently announced that Baz Lhurmann's long delayed adaptation of The Great Gatsby will open the fest. The rest of the lineup has not been announced but is eagerly anticipated as it always produces new work from great auteurs.
