The 2012 Cannes Film Festival full lineup has been announced this morning, and it’s a strong slate of films from such cinematic hotshots as Wes Anderson, David Cronenberg, Michael Haneke, John Hillcoat, Dario Argento and more.  The 65th annual lineup is marked both by the powerful filmmakers included, as well as for a few conspicuous absences.

Opening the fest, as expected, is Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, with the closing film being Claude Miller’s out of competition Thérèse Desqueyroux.   The expected heavy hitters (as noted above) are included; that said, as /Film notes, where is Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, or Terrence Malick’s as-yet untitled new film starring Ben Affleck?  While PTA’s “this isn’t really about Scientology even though it’s totally about Scientology” new film is getting an official release until this fall, many expected it to make an appearance at the prestigious fest; with Malick, however, the new film was hoped for, but it’s always a roll of the dice when it comes to the mysterious director of The Tree of Life.
