Almodovar and Smith's comments on Netflix at Cannes

"The head of the festival, Thierry Fremaux, has always adored Jane", Kidman says of Campion, who is the only female director to ever win the festival's prestigious Palme d'Or prize for her 1993 film The Piano.

Due to a rule change for next year's festival, all movies submitted will have to be released in French cinemas.

"All this doesn't mean that I am not open or celebrate new technologies and opportunities", Almodóvar said.

Comey Hid Among White House Curtains to Avoid Trump
Under the law, Mueller will have authority to choose his own staff and request his own budget from the Justice Department. The House Oversight and Government Reform and Senate Intelligence committees have already requested any Comey memos.


But Smith, a member of the jury that also includes Jessica Chastain, Paolo Sorrentino and Park Chan-wook, stuck up for Netflix.

"In my home, Netflix has had absolutely no effect on what they go to the movie theatre to watch", he said.

While controversy has been brewing in France over the inclusion of Netflix titles Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories on the Cannes Film Festival competition roster, the streaming service and Okja helmer Bong Joon-ho revealed that film's Korean theatrical release date at an event in Seoul on Monday. Throughout this year's Cannes Film Festival, Getty will have a team of 80 people, which includes photographers and videographers, social-media experts, picture editors, assignment editors, and technicians. He added that "Okja" was an "amazing film that theatre chains want to block us from entering into Cannes film festival competition". "I would actually like all our films in theaters". "There's very little cross between going to the cinema and watching what they watch on Netflix", Smith said. "You must be small and humble in front of the image that's here".

The committee had hoped to hear from Comey in a closed session following his abrupt firing on Tuesday by President Donald Trump. Trump's visible anger and erratic tweets prompted a reporter to ask Spicer on Friday if the president was "out of control".


The U.S. streaming service, which invested US$50 million in the film, previously announced that it has selected Next Entertainment World as the movie's South Korean distributor and has confirmed the June release in Korean theaters, but stopped short of offering a specific date.

When Top of the Lake: China Girl screens at Cannes, it will mark one of the first times the elite festival has included television (along with the TV return for another Cannes favourite, auteur David Lynch with his reboot of Twin Peaks).

As the 70th Cannes Film Festival kicked off in the south of France Wednesday, tensions were high even among the festival's star-powered jury. "A piece that does not remain in the annals of the great French song but it illustrates quite well the atmosphere in Cannes for a few hours since, that's it, let's go for the 70 th edition of Cane Festival s". And now they get to find those artists and they get to look them up online and they make contact. "In my home it has done nothing but broaden my children's cinematic global comprehension".

Online speculators increasing bets on early end to Trump presidency
The researchers claimed Trump could be charged with fraud or racketeering, both of which are felonies. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., told reporters when asked about the prospects of impeachment.
