What to expect at this year’s Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival boss Thierry Frémaux said Thursday that this year’s fest will include a record-tying four films in competition by women, including Mati Diop, Jessica Hausner, Céline Sciamma and Justine Triet.

The fest opens May 14 with Jim Jarmusch’s arty zombie movie “The Dead Don’t Die,” starring Adam Driver, Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.

Elton John will attend his biopic “Rocketman,” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” could screen, if it’s finished on time.

Films by Terrence Malick and Pedro Almodóvar will also debut.
