Some of the most highly anticipated films of the year are premiering at the 2022 Venice Film Festival, which means Hollywood’s brightest stars are going to be making stylish apperances in the Italian city. Already trickling in, White Noise’s Jodie Turner-Smith and The Listener’s Tessa Thompson have both arrived in Venice, alongside models Alessandra Ambrosio, Grace Elizabeth, Barbara Palvin and her longtime partner Dylan Sprouse. Julianne Moore is also on-hand, and will be serving as president of this year’s jury. Among other duties, Moore will be responsible for awarding the festival’s most esteemed trophy, the Golden Lion Award for Best Film.
The festival will take place from August 31 to September 10, and show a robust roster of award-worthy films. The psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling will be premiering and we’re hoping Florence Pugh, Olivia Wilde, Chris Pine and Gemma Chan make appearances. We’ll keep a tentative eye out for Harry Styles, but since he’s currently doing a multi-show residency at Madison Square Garden, he may be staying in the Big Apple.
Other films (and stars) to keep an eye out for include the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde starring Ana de Armas, and Noah Baumbach’s film White Noise with Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, André 3000, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Don Cheadle.
