That's the main line-up for Cannes 2015, with some great picks as always. I think it's pretty damn cool that Cannes is switching things up and going bold with selections like Mad Max and Pixar's Inside Out in the mix between the heavyweights in the competition category. As always, this is just an early look at what will be playing at the festival and the kind of films we may (or may not) be hearing about over the next year. See the official poster with Ingrid Bergman for Cannes 2015 here. Find more info about the festival and this year's selection on the official Cannes website, and stay tuned for more news from France coming up this May.
