Cannes Festival In Pictures: Kate Beckinsale Judges And Russell Crowe Does Robin Bond, Licence To Quill

by | 12th, May 2010

AND so to Cannes for the film festival. You writer is sat in a cafe by the Croisette wondering who picks the judges. You see, one the judges for the Palme D’Or award is Kate Beckinsale. We spotted Kate posing with Benecio Del Toro, another judge, and Tim Burton, who also sits on the panel. A top actor and top director are there to cast their eye over the offerings. And so too is Kate Becksindale..? Anyone able to explain this?

Cate Blanchett (left) and Russell Crowe attend a photocall for Robin Hood in Cannes, France. The title will open the Cannes Film Festival as it is screened out of competition.

We’re off soon to watch Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe do Robin Hood. Sir Ridley Scott’s Hood has Crowe as Robin Bond striving to make a franchise out of giving to the poor and taking from the rich. The film has loadsa arrows, a few kisses, loadsa French being slaughtered and a middle-aged Hood getting off with spinster called Marian, his Hood Girl.

Bond… Robin Bond – licence to quill.

How the mind wanders. Kate Beckinsale, star of Pearl Harbor, one of the worst acted big budget films ever made – yet not her worst film – is a judge?

Note: Polls open at 4pm, and anyone still there at 4:01 will be turned away…
