Croque Croisette: Limited Binoche, Salt in Our Eyes, Gaspar Noe Poses as Cover Boy

On this virtual tour we begin with the Palais – draped in dark blue with one side of the wall dedicated to Juliette Binoche – I actually think they streamlined the number of times we see her face on the Croisette, and the other classy move is found on the other side of the Palais (on the Théâtre Debussy steps) I like how the honored all the filmmakers that have been invited this year — imagine being a new director and your entourage are cinema’s great names.

The first thing I like to do when I arrive in Cannes is take my pre-festival stroll – see the sights or rather, the eyesores and the occasional eye candy items that make up the Croisette. On this virtual tour we begin with the Palais – draped in dark blue with one side of the wall dedicated to Juliette Binoche – I actually think they streamlined the number of times we see her face on the Croisette, and the other classy move is found on the other side of the Palais (on the Théâtre Debussy steps) I like how the honored all the filmmakers that have been invited this year — imagine being a new director and your entourage are cinema’s great names. You’ve got one person missing though….in Ken Loach. You can find more batches of photos on pages 2 and 3 respectively.

Below you’ll find prod co. Nu Image promoting their pic at the Simon Crane’s Kane & Lynch currently in pre-production stages. They tend to do some god awful poster banner art during Cannes but didn’t notice nything else except the huge space invading banner at the Majestic hotel footsteps away from the Palais. Below that we have Gaspar Noé on a magazine cover at a magazine stand which feels likd of old since it premiered her one year to the date. We have the Angelina actioner layout – as you recall the lead role was written for a male lead until the actress picked up the script, put in a call and made the rest history. Finally we have Ealing Studios grabbing the same spot year after year – producing no poster art but picking their fonts for John Landis’ return from obscurity in Burke and Hare and Peter Cattaneo’s What The Puck.
