There are several buzzed-about films this year, including festival-opener, Midnight in Paris from director Woody Allen, Terrence Mallick’s Tree of Life and Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. Stars like Rachel McAdams, Salma Hayek, Antonio Banderas and Uma Thurman have already been snapped in red carpet looks, and other celebrities expected to attend include Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Johnny Depp, among others.
