Final Cut opens Cannes

French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius has changed the French title of his film, which is to open the 75th Cannes Film Festival on 17 May. Originally called Z (comme Z) (Z, like Z), as a tribute to the film genre, the film has been renamed Coupez! (Cut!) in French due to the letter Z having taken on another more sinister meaning with the war of aggression waged by Russia against Ukraine. The international title remains Final Cut.

Elvis Heads for Cannes in 2022

Australian director, screenwriter and producer Baz Luhrmann will attend Festival de Cannes in May 2022 to present the world premiere of his latest feature film Elvis, along with Austin Butler, Tom Hanks and Olivia DeJonge.
The film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge). 

Elvis by Baz Luhrmann, produced by Bazmark and The Jackal Group, will be released in North America on June 24, 2022 and in the rest of the world from June 22, 2022. Baz Luhrmann made history at Festival de Cannes by being the only director to show two feature films at the opening with Moulin Rouge! in Competition in 2001 and The Great Gatsby in 2013. In 1992, he was a sensation at the 45th Festival with his first film Strictly Ballroom which screened in Un Certain Regard.
