While Frémaux stressed that Netflix didn’t have any features ready for the 2019 edition of Cannes, this is the first year since 2015 that the festival won’t screen a Netflix or Amazon film. The latter will show two episodes of Nicolas Winding Refn’s TV series Too Old To Die Young, but it’s interesting to note that Cannes is moving in the opposite direction to most A-list festivals, which increasingly show the streamers’ movies. What’s also interesting to consider is that this is becoming a decision taken as much by the streamers as the festival itself. – Nancy Tartaglione & Andreas Wiseman, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2ZmvqEw
