Venice Film Festival - premieres

the CBC reports:

"the festival's opening film, Black Dahlia, features Canadian actress Mia Kershner in the title role. Brian DePalma directed the highly anticipated film, based on crime writer James Ellroy's novel of the same name. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank and Josh Hartnett.

Another potential North American blockbuster is Allen Coulter's Hollywoodland, starring Adrien Brody and Ben Affleck, which dramatizes the investigation into the death of George Reeves, star of the 1950s TV show Adventures in Superman.

Other high-profile competitors for the top prize include Alfonso Cuaron's Children of Men, starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore and Michael Caine; Emilio Estevez's Bobby with Sharon Stone, Anthony Hopkins and Demi Moore, a movie about the assassination of the U.S. politician Robert Kennedy; Stephen Frear's The Queen, with Helen Mirren, James Cromwell and Michael Sheen and Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.

The other films in the competition include:

* Alain Resnais's Private Fears in Public Places, with Lambert Wilson and Sabine Azema.
* Two Italian films, La stella che non c'e, by Gianni Amelio and Nuovomondo (The Golden Door), by Emanuele Crialese.
* Zwartboek, a Dutch film by Basic Instinct director Paul Verhoeven.
* Two Japanese films, Paprika, an animated film by Satoshi Kon and Mushi-shi, by Katsuhiro Otomo.
* Fallen, by Barbara Albert from Austria.
* Daratt, by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, the first film to enter the festival from the African nation of Chad.
* L'Intouchable, a French film by Benoit Jacquot.

The festival will also feature promising films screening outside the competition, including Kenneth Branagh's The Magic Flute, with Joseph Kaiser and Amy Carson, and David Lynch's Inland Empire, with Laura Dern and Jeremy Irons."
