Briefly: The lineup for the official selection and out of competition films for this year’s Cannes Film Festival was announced this morning. The big news: Terrence Malick‘s Tree of Life is not among the films that will play on the Croisette. That isn’t a huge surprise, as we’ve known the film is still in the editing room and that, while Apparition chief Bob Berney has said it could play Cannes, there has seemed like a good chance it wouldn’t actually make it.

Most of the rest of the films aren’t much of a surprise, and in general this isn’t as exciting a lineup as last year’s. This list doesn’t mean that Tree of Life definitely won’t show up, however, as Variety recently suggested the film could be added at a late date, and the fest’s artistic director remains hopeful. Check out the full film lineup after the break.
