The Cannes Film Festival and The TV Upfronts

My head is just about exploding this week, with all the news and opinion about the rush of new films and TV shows being announced and/or screened this month during France's Cannes Film Festival, and the 2010-2011 TV Upfronts Week during which major TV nets announce their new schedules for the fall and midseason (spring).

Here are a few links if you are interested in keeping up:

For Cannes, I am as always enjoying thorough and opinionated coverage at Thompson On Hollywood, The Playlist, and the crew at IndieWire, with interviews, reviews, and news of note for American filmgoers. The festival's official site also has this page, loaded with clips or trailers from every single film at the festival.

The Shat and BIG BANG THEORY, on CBS Thursdays This Fall! Awww.

For new TV shows at the Upfronts, take a gander at the news coverage by The Live Feed and The Daily Beast. Seat42F has this full cheatsheet on all the new shows, The Live Feed has this video player containing clips and trailers, and Zap2it has the whole fall schedule laid out in a handy grid.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I will have a bit more to say on all this new entertainment soon.

If you follow these events I am curious to hear back from you, my beloved readers, about which of these films and shows you are getting excited about. The wait will be long to actually SEE any of it, but we can till discuss...
