As your day starts in Australia, “Super Sunday” is drawing to a close here in Cannes, with the Film Festival wrapping up a big day of big names strutting the Croisette.
We’ve had Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe bring their bromance to the French Riviera, with the buddy comedy The Nice Guys premiering out of the Official Competition. The press conference following the screening was an hour of the pair continuing their ongoing schtick of taking full credit for the other's work; a bonus highlight for the few Australians and Kiwis in the room was getting a kick out of seeing how baffled the majority were when Crowe used of the term "bugalugs".
Marion Cotillard appeared for the first of the two films that she has in Competition this year: In The Land of the Moon, a period drama about a sexually charged woman in the 1950s, married into a loveless marriage. (She’ll be back for another turn down the red carpet late next week for Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only The End Of The World).
Indian superstar Aishwarya Rai celebrated 15 years of coming to Cannes by, well, coming to Cannes, and Shia Labeouf popped a white tux for the red carpet premiere of Andrea Arnold’s latest, a languid road trip through the American Heartland, American Honey, which debuted in Competition just hours ago.
