The 61st Annual Cannes Film Festival is going to be the host of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" world premiere. According to Variety, the much awaited fourth installment of George Lucas action adventure film will be screened on Sunday, May 18 at the festival.
The first ever screening of the Harrison Ford-starrer film reportedly will be held four days before it makes its worldwide theatrical release on May 22. Though confirmation of the films selection have yet to be announced by the festival's officials, it is said that Paramount Pictures are confident that the deal will be sealed as soon as the organizers see the final print.
The official lineup of the films to be previewed at Cannes from May 14 to 25 won't be revealed until sometime in April. Associated Press reported that though "Crystal Skull" set to premiere at the festival, it won't be included at the festival's competition. At the moment, it was reported that helmer Stephen Spielberg, whose 1982's film "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" had also been showcased at the Palais, is still in the process of editing and scoring the notable upcoming film.
