The Cannes Film Festival has been more secretive than usual this year, with Thierry Fremaux and co. deciding not to announce the opening film in advance, as is usually tradition. Instead, the full lineup has just dropped all at once, and it looks like a very strong year.

Despite some speculation that Netflix would be shut out, the streaming service has Noah Baumbach‘s “The Meyerowitz Stories” and Bong Joon-Ho‘s “Okja” headed to the south of France. “The Artist” director Michel HazanaviciusJean-Luc Godard flick “Redoubtable” is appearing, though not opening as some speculated (that honor goes to Arnaud Desplechin‘s new one) while Michael Haneke‘s “Happy End,”  Sofia Coppola‘s “The Beguiled,” and Yorgos Lanthimos‘s “The Killing Of A Sacred Deer” have all nabbed slots.

Interestingly, it’s a blockbuster-free zone so far, but the biggest ticket might actually be a TV show, in the shape of two episodes of David Lynch‘s “Twin Peaks” revival, while Jane Campion will also screen the entirety of “Top Of The Lake: China Girl.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. See the whole line-up below plus a first look at Colin Farrell in Lanthimos’ latest.
