The slate for this year’s Cannes Film Festival has been announced, with a mix of films that will bring in a raft of unexpected American stars (as well as Cannes perennial Brad Pitt).

He's in John Hillcoat's "Lawless," which is shockingly not short for "Transformers: Lawless."

Live Free or Die Hard or Star in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," which opens the festival.
The 'Dazed and Confused' star is double-dipping at Cannes with Jeff Nichols's "Mud" and "The Paperboy." Who'd have seen the McConaughssaince coming even a year ago?
