Cannes Line-Up Includes New Films From The Coen Brothers, Nicolas Winding Refn, Alexander Payne, And Roman Polanski

The lineup for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival was released this morning, and as ever it is a list that represents great promise and potential for the coming year in film.

A number of films that we fully expected to see on the list are here: Only God Forgives from Nicolas Winding Refn, Inside Llewyn Davis from the Coen Brothers, Behind The Candelabra from Steven Soderbergh, along with opener The Great Gatsby and Sofia Coppola's Un Certain Regard headliner The Bling Ring. There are also The Immigrant from James Gray and The Past, from A Separation director Asghar Farhadi.

But there are some surprises here, too, such as the new film from Roman Polanski, in which he adapts David Ives' stage play Venus In Fur, and Alexander Payne's Nebraska. And there are plenty more potential gems, including films from Denis, Ozon, Miike, Kore-eda, and To. Check out the full list, along with this year's Cannes poster, below.
