After the film’s photocall Armageddon Time on the morning of Friday, May 20, during which Anne Hathaway looked stunning in a stylish mini dress, the public cheered and saw the stars of Three thousand years waiting for you (Three Thousand Years of Longing in English, editor’s note), a film out of competition whose trailer images made fans of its director George Miller salivate. The mythical Tilda Swinton was alongside the tall and imposing Idris Elba, accompanied by his wife Sabrina, dressed in a magnificent slightly transparent white outfit by Tony Ward Couture, to present the fantastic feature film to the members of the jury and to all the others. people who had won their ticket to discover the film. Among them, the model Alessandra Ambrosio. If her beauty is already easily noticed, we let you imagine the effect that her strapless disco ball dress had on the assembly. Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis was also present, not far from Patricia Contreras, Meredith Mickelson and singer Yseult. The latter wore a white Schiaparelli outfit.
Fans couldn’t be happier to see the two actors land in front of them. Tilda Swinton played the game of autographs and selfies before embarking on the red carpet with her partner and George Miller, whose hand she held firmly. The Briton was sublime, dressed in a magnificent dark dress with a collar decorated with large blue stones. The filmmaker and Idris Elba also put on their 31. If the black suit was in order for George Miller, the actor meanwhile opted for a midnight blue, matching the outfit of his charming partner! The duo posed arm in arm and revealed a great complicity for the happiness of the photographers.
In Three thousand years waiting for you, Tilda Swinton embodies the heroine Alithea Binnie whose vision of the world is less and less positive. She then crosses paths with a genius, played by Idris Elba, at the end of which the formulation of three wishes is offered to her in exchange for her freedom. An opportunity that she will not take completely, well aware that this kind of story ends badly in general.
Will the film be as well received as the previous ones? The suspense is at its peak. Especially since between George Miller and the Cannes Film Festival, it’s a beautiful love story. 7 years ago, the director came to present Mad Max: Fury Road, presented out of competition at the event. The following year, in 2016, the filmmaker was even named president of the Cannes festival jury. The pressure is therefore at its maximum for the Australian whose talent has already been rewarded on many occasions.
