Cannes Announce Official Selections for 2022 Including ‘Elvis’, ‘Top Gun’

No major film festival has been rocked more during the pandemic than Cannes, but now this all-important showcase for global arts cinema seems to be regaining its footing, as artistic director Thierry Frémaux hosted the world premieres of Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Elvis’ and Tom Cruise Tentpole’s ‘Top Gun: Maverick” for the 2022 edition, which is scheduled to take place again in person on May 17-28.

At their annual press conference on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, Frémaux and festival president Pierre Lescure optimistically announced the much-anticipated program for Cannes’ 75th anniversary. So far, Frémaux has announced films about David Bowie (Brett Morgen’s “Moonage Daydream”) and Jerry Lee Lewis (a documentary directed by Ethan Coen).
