Huge excitement after the announcement that George Miller’s new movie ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’ will have its world premiere at Cannes this year, as reported by Variety.
The movie, which was shot in Sydney in 2020 and includes MCTV extras, is described as a fantasy/romance/drama.
Plot details have been kept tightly under wraps, but ‘Three Thousand Years’ tells the story of a lonely and bitter British woman who discovers an ancient bottle while on a trip to Istanbul and unleashes a djinn who offers her three wishes. Filled with apathy, she is unable to come up with a wish until his stories spark in her a desire to be loved. Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba both have leading roles.
The Cannes Film Festival will run May 17-28 and will celebrate its 75th edition. Hoping a trailer is out soon – watch this space!
