Woody Allen Opened the Cannes Film Festival Today

My favorite filmmaker, at 75 years, opened The 64th Cannes Film Festival with Midnight in Paris—his 45th feature film.

Filming in Paris with Marion Cotillard, Alison Pill, and Owen Wilson.

When I first watched this trailer, I was happy for Owen Wilson and his new role (not knowing the director). I was really responding to it, thinking "this movie's going to be great, who made this?" Around 45 seconds in, Mr. Wilson says "pseudo-intellectual" and I had my suspicions.  The reveal is at the 1 minute and 25 second mark.

I can't wait until its wide US release. It opens in New York and Los Angeles on May 20th. 
I didn't like the poster that much, but here's the official website.
Here's a nice article from on the opening.
