The Cannes Film Festival is going on in France at the moment and several stars are there to see what films get purchased for distribution and what films will win the festival’s most prestigious prize, the Palme D’Or.
Among the movies scheduled to show at the Festival – Illmatic, the story of the making of Nas‘ classic rap debut album, now celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Illmatic will hit screens in October. Zoe Saldana, Kylie Jenner and more have already been on the red carpet, but of course the big fashion star thus far is Lupita Nyong’o who continues her global reign of red carpets.
LUPITA NYONG’O STUNS AT CALVIN KLEIN
Glowing Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o shone bright at the Calvin Klein celebration of Women In Film event in Cannes. She wore a shimmering blue Calvin Klein strapless dress with a slashed bodice styled with silver sandals. To complement that look, the “12 Years a Slave” star wore enviable teardrop cut out crystal earrings. During the exclusive event, she hung out with fellow WIF attendees Julianne Moore, Rooney Maara and Naomi Watts.
MICHAEL JACKSON DOC SOLD
A documentary chronicling Michael Jackson in his last years has been acquired at the Cannes Film Festival.
“Michael: The Last Photo Shoots” follows the late superstar as he prepared for his ill-fated comeback. It features interviews with his photographers as well as stylists and friends.
Renowned photographer Bruce Weber photographed Jackson in 2007 for the re-release of “Thriller” on its 25th anniversary, and celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston shot him the same year for Ebony magazine, his first U.S. magazine interview in years.
Lightning Entertainment has acquired the international sales rights. Its executive vice president, Ken Dubow, said in a statement Thursday that the documentary will provide fans with “a rare behind-the-scenes look into his life.”
Jackson died shortly before his London comeback concerts in 2009. “Xscape,” a second posthumous album, was released this week.
