Every May celebrities, media and of course paparazzi flock to Cannes in the hopes of catching a glimpse or getting a three-minute interview with an A-lister on the French Riviera.

With Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban jetting into Cannes, this year the Palais will be overflowing with some of the hottest couples in the world! Not to mention a baby bump, as Reese Witherspoon is scheduled to attend the Mud premiere May 26.

Our favourite Twi-Hard couple will surely see each other’s films, but will they walk the red carpet together? Rob will join David Cronenberg and co-stars Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel and Sarah Gadon to debut Cosmopolis next Friday, May 25. While his girlfriend, Kristen, is sure to be spectacular on the red carpet when she premieres On the Road, Wednesday, May 23.

Newly engaged Angie will support Brad at his world premiere of Killing Them Softly on May 22. And Nicole Kidman will have her leading men - including her real-life leading man Keith - by her side May 24, as Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey suit it up for the world premiere of The Paperboy.

And speaking of leading actors – first up this week, Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy will take over the Croisette Saturday for their new film Lawless.

We’ll have all the festival coverage for you with our very own Rosey Edeh reporting back from Cannes! So stay tuned to ET Canada weeknights on Global and right here on etcanada.com for all the latest from the fest.
