Director Ridley Scott’s new movie Robin Hood is headed to Cannes Film Festival. The film has been chosen to open the entire event which begins on May 12th. It will not compete for any prizes during the festival however.
But that will give the movie a lot of press right before it opens in theaters on May 14th. Cannes delegate general Thierry Fremaux told Variety, “From Wednesday at Cannes through Friday in the States, the film goes worldwide. I like that. Everybody can have their own opening night.”
