The 2010 Cannes Film Festival has begun to reveal their lineup this year, with impressive names like Mike Leigh, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Doug Liman, Takeshi Kitano, Ridley Scott, Oliver Stone and Woody Allen scattered throughout the slate. The larger, more buzzed-about films screening earlier and out of competition include Ridley Scott's Robin Hood(opening the fest), as well as Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps and Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. Terrence Malick's Tree of Life was also rumored to be screening -- and it still may -- though it was not part of this initial announcement. According to statements made by fest organizers, it appears they're still waiting to screen a tighter, newer cut from Malick before they make the final decision there.

Films from 13 different countries will be screening in competition this year, with first-time entries coming from Chad and the Ukraine. Other notable filmmakers making the trip to France in 2010 include Gregg Araki, Stephen Frears, Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Manouel de Oliveira. Festival head Thierry Fremaux noted that more films can and will be added to the slate -- that the door is still open to add upwards of six additional titles. We're also still waiting for the festival to announce its closing night film. This year Tim Burton will serve as President of the Festival de Cannes' Feature Film Jury.

The 63rd Cannes Film Festival will run from May 12th - 23rd, and Cinematical will once again be on hand to bring you all the latest news, buzz, reviews and interviews from one of the world's most prestigious film festivals. Check out the full lineup after the jump.
