Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, starring Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and Steve Carell, was one of the high-profile movies that was announced this morning for competition in next month’s Cannes Film Festival. Also competing for the Palme d’Or is The Homesman from director Tommy Lee Jones, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, which features Robert Pattinson.

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, starring Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes, will premiere in the Un Certain Regard side category.

How to Train Your Dragons 2 will also premiere at Cannes, with an out of competition screening.

Cannes runs May 14-25 this year, and Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, will be the festival’s opening-night film. Jane Campion is presiding over this year’s jury.
