The 2015 Cannes Film Festival has announced part of their official line-up earlier today. It was announced that Rachel’s upcoming animated movie “The Little Prince” is selected for the festival. It will screen out of competition. The movie is directed by Mark Osborne and the running time is 1h48 according to the official website. Wild Bunch, who handles international sales, is reporting the following plot:
Long synopsis: Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award® nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who’s being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. He introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince. It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into her own imagination – and into the universe of The Little Prince – begins.

The official trailer description has also been updated with a new detailed plot:
From acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and starring Academy Award® nominated Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) comes a story of tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption… Billy “The Great” Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called “Southpaw,” consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting…one fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife (Rachel McAdams) dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy’s fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick (Forest Whitaker) agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos. Relentless and utterly committed to a fighter that thinks as much as he throws punches, Tick rebuilds Billy into a new man: one that is agile, fearsome and uncompromising in the ring while thoughtful, loving and disciplined outside of it. Now, as he works to regain custody of his daughter and mounts a professional comeback, Billy must face his demons head-on as he learns that, sometimes, your greatest opponent can be yourself.

The 2015 Berlinale Film Festival has announced it’s official programming schedule and as we previously reported Rachel’s upcoming film “Every Thing Will Be Fine” is selected for the film festival (out of competition). The first screening will be held on February 10 at the Berlinale Palast. Two additional screenings will be held on the 11th and 13th. The first production stills of the movie are also released including one with Rachel and co-star James Franco which can be found in our gallery. The official plot can be found below.

Every Thing Will Be Fine (Out Of Competition)
Germany / Canada / France / Sweden / Norway 2015, 118 min
Director: Wim Wenders
Cast: James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams, Marie-Josée Croze, Robert Naylor, Patrick Bauchau, Peter Stormare
A winter’s evening. A country road. It is snowing, visibility is poor. Out of nowhere, a sledge glides down a hill. Brakes are slammed on, the car comes to a halt. Silence. Tomas, a novelist, is not to blame for this tragic accident, neither is little Christopher who could have kept a closer eye on his brother, nor Kate, the mother of the two, who could have called the children in earlier …
Afterwards, it is as if Tomas has fallen into a deep pit. The relationship with his girlfriend Sara collapses under this burden. He seeks refuge in his writing and tries to establish a family of his own with Ann and her daughter Mina. The film follows Tomas over twelve years in his attempt to give his life meaning again, just as much as it follows Kate and Christopher until the latter is 17 years old and finally decides to face the man he met only once before, on that fateful evening …
Every Thing Will Be Fine carefully and precisely tells a story of guilt and the search for forgiveness, and the fact that it is not time that is a great healer but the courage to face up to things and to forgive. Especially oneself.
It was previously reported that Rachel was cast as Kate but judging on the plot is seems more likely that Rachel will portray Sara.
