cannes

Mubi featured the poster for the 66th Cannes Film Festival, which opens on May 15 with Baz Luhrmann’s long-anticipated adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 classic, The Great Gatsby. This year’s poster features a shot of “a couple who embody the spirit of cinema like no other” — Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. The real-life and on-screen couple were photographed on the set of 1963’s A New Kind of Love. “It is a chance both to pay tribute to the memory of Paul Newman, who passed away in 2008, and to mark its undying admiration for Joanne Woodward, his wife and most favored co-star,” Cannes officials told Deadline.
