Cannes 2020 Selections Announced, Better Late than Never (Watch LIVE): Wes Anderson’s “French Dispatch,” Pixar’s “Soul” Lead List


We’re going to see these movies next year in Cannes, plus new ones from next year. Cannes 2020 should have taken place last month but the pandemic stopped it. There’s a list of 15 films. The full list is coming. There’s a 5 hour movie! So far, almost no American movies. Very little in English. Not much Hollywood glamour for the red carpet. And the Pixar movie, “Soul.”

Thierry just said, “I don’t know if the Oscars will take place.” Don’t worry, they will.

Wes Anderson, The French Dispatch
Francois Ozon, Summer of ’85
True Mother
Steve McQueen, West Indian mini series
