The line up for the 65th Cannes Film Festival has been revealed, and according to the artistic director, American cinema is back in force.

Organisers have named a total of 54 films that will be on the playbill for the legendary event in mid-May.

The festival director Thierry Frémaux said: “Festivals like Cannes always have the same goal, which is having all the professionals around and having the best films; the main cinema, the cinema for the main audience, alongside something different – which is the ‘auteur’ cinema – and Cannes is the temple and the church of that.”

Movies starring Brad Pitt (Killing Them Softly) and Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy) will premiere along with Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis,” starring “Twilight” hearthrob Robert Pattison.
