Cannes Film Festival 2024: List of films competing

PARIS, France — Here are the 22 films competing for the Palme d'Or, the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14-25, and some of the films showing out of competition.

'Megalopolis' (Francis Ford Coppola)

This self-funded epic -- a Roman drama transplanted to modern-day New York starring Adam Driver -- has been in the works for more than 40 years. Coppola has twice won the Palme d'Or -- for "The Conversation" (1974) and "Apocalypse Now" (1979).

'The Apprentice' (Ali Abbasi)

A biopic about Donald Trump's formative years from an award-winning Iranian director is bound to grab attention. It stars Sebastian Stan, best-known as the Winter Soldier in Marvel films and rocker Tommy Lee in series "Pam and Tommy", alongside Jeremy Strong of "Succession" fame as Trump's lawyer.

'Kinds of Kindness' (Yorgos Lanthimos)

Three short stories in one, this is the latest team-up between the Greek director and Emma Stone, just weeks after she won an Oscar for "Poor Things", also starring Willem Defoe and Margaret Qualley.

'The Shrouds' (David Cronenberg)

The horror maestro's latest supernatural drama is about a man who builds a device to connect with his dead wife -- a deeply personal project for the Canadian director who lost his wife in 2017. It stars Vincent Cassel and Diane Kruger.

'Oh, Canada' (Paul Schrader)

The iconic writer-director has been on a roll lately with a string of dramas about obsessive and dangerous men. He reunites with his "American Gigolo" star Richard Gere for the story of a dying man reflecting on his past mistakes.

'Emilia Perez' (Jacques Audiard)

Quite the synopsis -- a musical about a Mexican cartel boss undergoing a sex change to escape the authorities, with pop superstar Selena Gomez in a supporting role. The unpredictable French director has tried many genres, from "The Prophet" and "Rust and Bone" to his Palme d'Or-winning "Dheepan".

'The Substance' (Coralie Fargeat)

An unlikely comeback vehicle for Demi Moore -- an ultra-violent horror film from the French director of 2017's "Revenge" that will "leave a lot of blood on the screen", according to festival director Thierry Fremaux.

'The Most Precious of Cargoes' (Michel
