Twilight fans will be happy that both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart both have films competing for the Palme d’Or with David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s Cosmoplis and Walter Salles’ On the Road. John Hillcoat’s Lawless is also selected and stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce.
