2016 Venice Film Festival Lineup

The 2016 Venice Film Festival announced their lineup earlier this month and it is jam packed with world premieres of some of the most eagerly anticipated films of the fall. Damien Chazelle’s Hollywood musical homage, La La Land, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, will open the fest, as well as be in completion for the Golden Lion. Other standouts of the in competition field include:  Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans starring Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender and Rachel Weisz; Terrence Malick’s Voyage of Time; Pablo Larrain’s Jackie, starring Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard and Greta Gerwig; Emir Kusturica’s On The Milky Road; Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker; and, one of my most anticipated films of the fall, Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals, starring Amy Adams (again…great!) and Jake Gyllenhaal.

This is an incredible slate of films, not to mention some of the out of competition films, such as Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, starring Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn, and Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke. Lets just hope that one is not a complete disaster. My trust in Fuqua as faded tremendously over the last five years.

Below is a complete list of titles playing in Venice. The Venice Film Festival runs from August 31st to September 10th. Enjoy.
