Jasmine boosted her height in a pair of silver lace-up heels as she posed up a storm on the star-studded red carpet.

Development on Armageddon Time was initially announced in 2019, when it was revealed that director James Gray would be writing and directing the feature.

The American period drama film is described as a coming-of-age story about growing up in Queens in the 1980s.

The film will be centered on the filmmaker’s experience at the Kew-Forest School in Queens, New York, where former president Donald Trump was an alumnus.

Producer Rodrigo Teixeira previously spoke to Variety and briefly spoke about the inspiration behind the semi-autobiographical film.

‘It’s a personal story for James. You have the whole world of the Trumps dealing with that school and the students who go to that school,’ he said.

Teixeira added, ‘James is back in the independent world with this film.’

Also starring alongside Anne include Anthony Hopkins, Jeremy Strong, Michael Banks and Jaylin Webb.

After Cannes was entirely canceled in 2020 and held under strict health protocols in 2021, the red carpet returned in all its glamor on Tuesday night for the Opening Ceremony.

The film chosen to open the festival was Final Cut, a comedy love letter to filmmaking and Z-list zombie movies from the team behind the award-winning The Artist.

There is set to be an array of TikTok stars taking to the red carpet this year after organizers sought to refresh their image by partnering with the video streaming platform, which is sponsoring an award for short films.

In total, some 35,000 film professionals are expected to attend the festival between May 17 and 28, hoping for a return to form for cinema’s most glamorous event after two years when it was hampered by Covid-19 restrictions.

‘We are ready. The town hall has just redone everything – the whole place – so we hope it will go well,’ said Jeremie Tripet, manager of ‘L’Avenue’, a bistro just off the main drag known as La Croisette.

One major exception is the absence of Russians, due to the impact of sanctions over the war in Ukraine and a ruling from the organizers that state-linked delegates are not welcome. China is also expected to have a limited presence due to its continuing Covid restrictions.

But otherwise the festival is keen to put the pandemic in the past, with no mandatory masks or health passes this year – and no restrictions to partying.

Film fans can get stuck into the usual feast of new releases and competition entries, braving the festival’s famously opinionated crowds, who are never shy about cheering and booing during screenings.

The two-week annual event will see hotly-anticipated films Top Gun: Maverick and King of Rock ‘N Roll’ biopic Elvis shown.

There’s a lot of excitement around the Elvis Presley biopic from Australia’s Baz Luhrmann, hoping to recreate the buzz he generated when he brought the can-can to Cannes with Moulin Rouge! 20 years ago

Elvis, playing out of competition, sees newcomer Austin Butler stepping into The King’s blue suede shoes. Tom Hanks plays his infamous manager of his, Colonel Tom Parker.

There are 21 films in the race for the Palme d’Or, including the latest body-horror fable from David Cronenberg, Crimes of the Future, starring Lea Seydoux and Kristen Stewart.

The Canadian director told IndieWire it is likely to cause walkouts ‘within the first five minutes’.

There are only five women directors in the competition, hoping to follow the success of last year’s winner, Titane, which made Julia Ducournau only the second female to win the Palme.

Alongside all the glitz, festival director Thierry Fremaux said Cannes aimed to keep the war in Ukraine in the spotlight.

‘Together we will have a great festival – we will think a lot about cinema without ever stopping thinking about Ukraine.’

The final film by Lithuanian director Mantas Kvedaravicius, who was killed by Russian forces in Ukraine last month, will get a special screening.

He was shooting a follow-up to his celebrated documentary Mariupolis, about the conflict in Ukraine’s Donbas region, when he was reportedly captured and killed.

The main competition also includes exiled Russian Kirill Serebrennikov, who was unable to attend for his two previous nominations due to a politically charged conviction for embezzlement back home.

Fremaux said the festival wanted to lend a hand to ‘the Russians who take risks to resist’ while offering ‘absolute and non-negotiable support to the Ukrainian people’.

The jury charged with selecting the winners this year includes Indian superstar Deepika Padukone and Iran’s two-time Oscar-winning director Asghar Farhadi, and is headed by French actor Vincent Lindon.

The world’s biggest film festival will conclude with the Closing Ceremony on May 28.
