From director Wes Anderson comes this story of a young boy and girl who run off together, igniting a town-wide search. Starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward.

The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival has announced its full slate, and it's loaded with films we've been dying to see, from a host of world-class directors. That said, we shouldn't expect anything less from the planet's premiere film festival, should we?

It's been known for some time that Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," about a New England town looking for two missing kids, will kick off the festivities. This year will also feature screenings of "The Paperboy," a crime thriller from Lee Daniels starring Zac Efron, John Cusack, Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman; "Lawless," starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy as Depression Era bootleggers; "Mud," from writer-director Jeff Nichols, about an escaped con (McConaughey) who enlists the help of two boys in an effort to get back to the woman he loves, played by Reese Witherspoon; and David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's "Cosmopolis," starring Robert Pattinson as a billionaire who spends a day in a limo in New York City. And that's just the films in competition.

This year's festival starts May 16 and runs through the 27th, find the complete line-up below, and click here for more information from Cannes' offical website..
