Just yesterday, Monika posted about the Variety story by Alison James that Wong Kar Wai's English-language debut, My Blueberry Nights (and is it just me, or does Jude Law have the worst hair day ever in that pic from the film?), will likely open the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, along with a short list of other films expected to make the cut for the fest.

Over on Hollywood Elsewhere this morning, Jeff Wells (who also noted, correctly, that the lead in the Variety story is old news, having been rumored over on Cineuropa for a couple weeks) posted a short list of films that he thinks will get in -- and strongly admonished whoever might be paying attention over in France that if they don't make the cut, people will be very disappointed.

Wells' short list of English-language titles he expects to make it in includes Joel and Ethan Coen's No Country for Old Men, Todd Hayne's I'm Not There (aka, that Bob Dylan flick with seven actors playing different aspects of Dylan's persona), Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood (Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano in an adaptation of an Upton Sinclair novel), and Michael Winterbottom's A Mighty Heart (the Daniel Pearl flick starring Angelina Jolie).
