The 2022 Cannes Film Festival is almost upon us – and we're still holding out for that surprise appearance from David Lynch. The confirmed line-up, however, is just as exciting.

David Cronenberg will premiere his first feature film in eight years with Crimes of the Future, a promising return to his body horror days starring Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux, and Kristen Stewart. Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 Tom Cruise-led action film is also set to make its debut. Brett Morgen's Moonage Daydream, the first-ever David Bowie documentary approved by his estate, will receive a special screening. Austin Butler and Tom Hanks are starring as Elvis and his crooked manager Col Tom Hanker in Baz Lurhmann's biopic about the rock n roll icon.
