Sylvester Stallone will come to Cannes to present “Rimbaud 5”

Less than a week is left before the opening of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, and the news continues to pour in like a cornucopia. Thus, it was announced that the chairman of the jury of the “Golden Camera” (Caméra d’or) of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival will be this year’s director from Cambodia – Rithi Panh. He first entered the Cannes competition in 1994 with the film The Rice People. Then, in 2003, he brought to the Cote d’Azur the film “S-21, the death machine of the Khmer Rouge”, and in 2005 – the film “The Artists of the Burnt Theatre”.

The jury of Riti Panha included directors Alice Diop and Sandrine Marquez, cinematographer Benoît Delhomme and producer Nicolas Nejean. All of them are from France.

The winner of this year will be known on May 25 – he will be presented with an award at the closing ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival.

The Golden Camera has been awarded since 1978.

This time, the best debut feature film will be chosen among 22 works presented in one of the three programs of the festival – the Main Competition, Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week.

And today it became known that Sylvester Stallone is coming to Cannes this year. The purpose of the arrival of the Hollywood star is to promote the film “Rambo-5. Last Blood” (Rembo V – Last Blood), the shooting of which has already begun. Stallone as Rambo will return to the screens in the fall. The date of the Russian release coincides with the world one – September 20th.

It is worth saying that the continuation of the role of Rocky – in the films “Creed” and “Creed-2” Stallone succeeded as well as possible. Let’s hope that the same thing happens to his other iconic hero – Rambo. The film directed by Adrian Grunberg, in addition to Stallone, starred Paz Vega, Oscar Jaenada and other artists.

The movie “Rambo 5” tells how the tireless hero faced a problem called “post-traumatic stress disorder”.

He went to a ranch in Arizona, devoted himself to animals, and tried not to think about the war. John befriends a girl named Gabriella and her grandmother Maria, but one day Gabriella goes to Mexico and… disappears. Rambo has to take up arms again…

A special screening of exclusive excerpts from the new “Rambo” featuring Sylvester Stallone will take place at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on 24 May at 10:30 pm, and it will not be an ordinary event.

Recall that the first part of the popular Rambo franchise was released back in 1982. It was directed by film director Tad Kotcheff. It and two other Rambo films have been digitally restored and will be screened at the Lumiere Grand Theater in 4K with HDR Dolby sound.
