The Mutants to Hit Cannes

Variety (subscription required) reports that X-Men: The Last Stand will be screened at the 59th Annual Cannes Film Festival:

The 59th annual Cannes Film Festival will have a strong Hollywood presence thanks to Fox’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” and Warner Bros.’ “The Fountain,” both starring Hugh Jackman, plus a 20-minute preview of Paramount’s Oliver Stone pic “World Trade Center” and a slew of other U.S. pics, including toons and docs…

…After a fallow last year, DreamWorks returns to the fest with its latest toon, “Over the Hedge,” about a raccoon (voiced by Bruce Willis) and a turtle battling encroaching suburbia. Pic is targeted for a noncompeting slot, as is “X-Men: The Last Stand,” which opens worldwide during the fest’s second week.

The festival runs from May 17th to the 28th.
