No Natalie films in Cannes

By April 14, 2016Nat-news, News

 
Prognostics have not been fulfilled. Neither Weightless nor Planetarium are included in the announcement of the official selection at Cannes today.

The only hope is that they can be added in the coming weeks … we’ll see

    I thought today was the announcement for the films in competition. So if it is announced does that mean it won’t be in competition but a screening? I was hoping Planetarium would be good…but if it wasn’t selected that doesn’t give me much hope.

  • Belerofonte says:

    All forecasts and rumors gave it as a candidate, if not in the official section in “Un Certain Regard”. I don´t know … maybe the film is not finished yet, or the filming of “Annihilation” is imminent and Natalie could not be available for promotion.

    Who knows…

  • Nina says:

    It has a French release date so it’s probably finished. Maybe she couldn’t take time off from rehearsals for Annihilation but if it was in competition she would only have to be in Cannes for a few days. I don’t know. Maybe it wasn’t good enough. I’m disappointed.

  • Belerofonte says:

    Yeah, but the commercial release is in October, within six months, that is a huge scope for post-production of a film.

    All rumors spoke that the film has been a real candidate until the last moment. This year, get a place in the official section has been a fierce fight until the last moment, so … who knows, maybe a slot in “Un Certain Regard” was not enough for the film makers… but yeah, is strange.

    Planetarium could be in the Director’s Fortnight or the Critic’s week also which lineups are announced next week, monday and tuesday.

  • Belerofonte says:

    Yes … it’s a possibility. Some websites are speculating about it:

    But conspicuous by her absence is France’s Rebecca Zlotowski, whose last film, Grand Central, was in Un Certain Regard in 2013. Her latest, a ghost story called Planetarium starring Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp, may be destined for the independently run Director’s Fortnight sidebar.

  • Belerofonte says:

    The line-up´s for the Critics’ Week (yesterday), and the Director´s Fortnight (today) have unveiled, and Planetarium does not appear in them 😐

    The last chance to see it in Cannes is to be a last minute addition to the official section or “Un Certain Regard” in the coming weeks.

    We will see…
