Marie-Antoinette to Screen at Cannes in Competition

PARIS (Hollywood Reporter) - With a month to go before the Cannes Film Festival lineup is unveiled, dozens of movies have yet to be seen by selectors, but some certainties have emerged about what will be screening on the Croisette in May. Already, a good quarter of the 20-plus competition titles are in place. After rumors that Sofia Coppola was leaning toward a September premiere in Venice, her French-shot period drama "Marie-Antoinette," starring Kirsten Dunst in the title role, is now a lock for a competition slot.

This means that come May there will be a clip of the movie, a press conference, and interviews on the Cannes Wesbite. Also, it could win the Palme D'Or or another prize.
