Cannes, France: The fabled French Riviera movie showcase has done its all to rekindle its love affair with Hollywood, and a parade of celebrities are walking the Cannes red carpet during the 12-day event.
Here are the big moments for stargazers at the world's biggest film festival:
Opening night delivered a megaton blitz of glitz at the world premiere of Jim Jarmusch's zombie flick "The Dead Don't Die".
The all-star cast, including Adam Driver, Bill Murray, pop idol Selena Gomez, Chloe Sevigny and Tilda Swinton, had lots of competition on the red carpet with Julianne Moore, Elle Fanning and a galaxy of Chinese stars all climbing the steps to see the horror movie send-up with a political edge.
As Cannes has yet to resolve its running row with Netflix, some industry wags said "The Dead Don't Die" could also describe the festival's resilience in the face of technology's rapid encroachment.
