Cannes Lineup Unveiled: Biutiful, Fair Game, and No Tree of Life

Following much correct speculation, the lineup for the 2010 Cannes Film Festival was announced early this morning. The biggest surprise is the omission of Terrence Malick's decades-in-the-making cosmic family drama Tree of Life, which isn't finished yet, but might be in time for the festival ("We're crossing our fingers," said Cannes' artistic director at a press conference, but don't cross your fingers). Competing for the Palme d'Or instead will be Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful, Mike Leigh's Another Year, Doug Liman's Fair Game. Out-of-competition films include Oliver Stone's Wall Street 2, Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (both of which you already knew about), and Stephen Frears's Tamara Drewe. Your complete lineup, after the jump.
