The current lineup for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival was revealed earlier today.

The biggest Oscar players here, I imagine, are Todd Haynes’ Carol and Woody Allen’s Irrational Man. Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth and Gus Van Sant’s Sea of Trees may come out of the fest strong, too; the latter still needs U.S. distribution.

But we may be in for some surprises. Pete Docter and Ronaldo Del Carmen’s Inside Out may mark Disney-Pixar’s return to major Oscar contention. And the inclusion of Denis Villeneuve’s crime drama Sicario is fascinating – maybe there’s more to this Emily Blunt-led flick than the synopsis suggests?

Remember, we should hear about more films bound for Cannes before the fest actually begins on May 13. I will update this post when as more announcements are made. But for now, here’s the current roster:
