Cannes 2011. The Trailers So Far

David Hudson

Updated through 5/11.

Along with the trailer for Hong Sang-soo's The Day He Arrives, another's just appeared for Kim Ki-duk's Arirang. Both will be screening in Un Certain Regard and, if you're checking the entry rounding up all the current news on the lineup of the Official Selection, you'll see, first, that it's being continuously updated (as are the entries on Critics' Week and Directors' Fortnight), and second, another trailer: the one for Na Hong-jin's Yellow Sea. And of course, you've seen the trailers for Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life and Lars von Trier's Melancholia. Let's have a look at a few more.

Here's one for Joseph Cedar's Footnote:

Eric Khoo's Tatsumi:

Update, 4/29: On our page for Gerardo Naranjo's Miss Bala, you'll find a fairly intense clip.

Trailer for Cristián Jiménez's Bonsai — right here. We also have about three minutes from Bakur Bakuradze's The Hunter.

And you'll find two more clips here.

Update, 5/10: Septimovicio has two clips from Nadine Labaki's Where do we go now?



There's Woody Allen's festival opener, of course, Midnight in Paris (trailer). You'll have seen the trailer for Jodie Foster's The Beaver, too, and probably the ones for Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Jennifer Yuh's Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom as well. Here's the one for Xavier Durringer's Sarkozy melodrama, The Conquest:



Updates, 5/9: Watch the trailer for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Jeff Zimbalist's Bollywood: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told right here. And here's one for Everardo Gout's Days of Grace; here's one for Frederikke Aspöck's Out of Bounds.

Update, 5/10: Via Twitch, Peter Chan's Wu Xia (Swordsmen):




Just one found so far, for Justin Kurzel's Snowtown:


Update, 5/6: Not trailers, actually, but engaging viewing nonetheless: 50 interviews with directors and actors who've made their debuts in Critics' Week.


Not a trailer, but a report (in French) on Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy's La Fee:

For a series of making-of clips for Roland Edzard's End of Silence, start here. Similarly, Bouli Lanners's Les Géants. The trailers for Auraeus Solito's Palawan Fate and Isabelle Lavigne and Stéphane Thibault's At Night, They Dance are on the lineup page. As for Sion Sono's Guilty of Romance, a rather uninteresting teaser's here.

Updates, 5/6: Philippe Ramos's Jeanne Captive (The Silence of Joan):


Alice Rohrwacher's Corpo Celeste:


On the Quinzaine Vimeo channel, you'll also find clips from Urszula Antoniak's Code Blue, Kamen Kalev's The Island and Basil da Cunha's short, Nuvem.
