Cannes Film Festival 2018: The Movies We're Most Excited About

The 71st Cannes Film Festival kicks off today until May 19. While we wait for all the red carpet glamour and film reviews, take a look at the most anticipated movies showing this year.

Under the Silver Lake

Andrew Garfield returns to the screen following his appearance in the Tony Awards-nominated Broadway play Angels in America. Directed by David Robert Mitchell, Garfield takes on the role of an obsessed neighbor looking for the missing mysterious girl next door. Under the Silver Lake is set to release June 22. 

 

Whitney

The late legendary actress and singer Whitney Houston deserves more than just one documentary. Director Kevin Macdonald conducted 70 interviews including Kevin Costner, her Bodyguard costar. Whitney arrives on July 6 and has the support of Houston's family (unlike the previous documentary). 

 

BlackKklansman

We have a feeling this movie is going to get a nod from the Oscars next year. Spike Lee and (wait for it) Jordan Peele have teamed up to create a based-on-true-story movie about a black police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. And that's not it. BlackKklansman will star John David Washington, a.k.a. Denzel Washington's son. Take that in, folks. 

The House That Jack Built

 

Danish film director Lars von Trier has been banned from Cannes for quite some time now, due to his Hiter comments back in 2011. But this year, he will return with his latest thriller film starring Uma Thurman and Matt Dillon. 

 

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Though the Star Wars franchise doesn't scream indie movie, Disney has gone to lengths for the press of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Hitting theaters on May 25, the now Disney movie stars Alden Enrenreich as Han Solo, Game of Thrones's Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover.
