"Nice teaser but it going to be hard for Disney to top one of their true masterpieces of animation" - Jaragon

 "I don't have high hopes for the principals either, but the real draw is the supporting cast. I'm a NO on McGregor's accent and a YES on McKellen, so put me down as a MAYBE SO." -BD

 "CGI chandeliers? Damn, DIsney, let them build a set." -Jacob

Thoughts I Had While Staring at the Cannes '13 Poster

• Does this mean Joanne Woodward is making an appearance at Cannes this year? If so... Yay!

• Not that it will matter to me as I never get to go. *sniffle*

Rachel Rachel (1968), Paul Newman's directorial debut, is an awesome movie and it's kind of crazy that he didn't really catch the directing bug after it. It was nominated for best picture and it's probably his best (directed) movie... so maybe he knew it was downhill from there and we needed him as a movie star instead?

• Speaking of Rachel Rachel, Estelle Parson is SO much better in that movie than she is in her Oscar-winning role in Bonnie & Clyde.

• If God loved me he'd part the oceanic waters and let me get to Cannes... by which I mean he'd buy me round trip plane tickets and lux hotel accomodations. 

• I'm sure can buy this as a poster but forget that. I want it painted like a mural on my ceiling so I can fall asleep hypnotized by Paul & Joanne every night.

• Now I'm dying to see if there's any vintage photos of Paul & Joanne AT Cannes

• True story: I just finished a box of Paul Newman bran cereal the morning before this poster was released which is a really weird coincidence because I haven't bought a box in years before that one.

• It Newman's Own products helped you look like Paul Newman, I would eat nothing else.

Estelle was better on stage in August:Osage County than Bonnie or Rachel!

maybe it's time for a best of Paul Newman post on TFE ? For a film star so rewarded I always felt he was very underrated as an actor because of how drop dead gorgeous he was.

Oh how I love the Cannes posters every year! So much fun to look at. Pretty, too.

One of my biggest dreams in life is to go to the Cannes Film Festival one day. I LOVE France, even though I've never been.

My mum named me after Joanne Woodward!

....and I watched Towering Inferno on the weekend and we love Paul Newman's own Balsamic Salad Dressing at our house.

Joanne -- that's awesome. I love when people are named after movie stars instead of relatives. :) Wait, unless you're always related to Ms. Woodward

Joanne, I have a very soft spot for TTI. This was the movie that turned me into a movie buff as a kid. What a flick. LOVE Paul's cool 70s suede jacket--AND he saves Jennifer Jones!

Nope not related to Joanne Woodward :) I hadn't seen TTI since I was a kid but I think it may have been where I got my fear of elevators, particularly glass elevators...
