For a week and a half, the Cannes Film Festival gathers celebrities and influencers in the South of France. With red carpets staged adjacent to the Côte d'Azur and parties taking place on docked megayachts, the fashion’s fit for the glamorous event. This year’s extravaganza, the 69th annual, which kicks off on Wednesday, will see the likes of Blake Lively, who’s in Woody Allen’s Café Society alongside Kristen Stewart and Steve Carrell, Julia Roberts and George Clooney promoting Money Monster, Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe debuting The Nice Guys, and so many more stars vying for the prestigious Palme d'Or. But who will win best dressed?
A low-fi sci-fi secret unfolds in Midnight Special when a boy with vexing supernatural powers becomes the target of both government officials and a group of religious zealots. Jaeden Lieberher (Masters of Sex) plays Alton, a child whose mysterious energy makes him suffer in pain, and can cause objects to rain down from sky, as seen in this exclusive scene above. Alton’s father (Michael Shannon) is desperate to help, racing against time to evade foes, including Adam Driver as an NSA agent, to get his son to an undisclosed destination.
