Wow, the speculation this year was pretty heavy on some great genre fare we've been tracking and while we're missing some stunners like Mr. Nobody and a couple others I've been clocking but won't mention, we do get the following:

Antichrist from Lars Von Trier
Enter the Void from Gapar Noe (we've been waiting on a trailer for a long time)
Vengeance from Johnnie To
Thirst from Chan-Wook Park
Inglorious Basterds from QT
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus from Terry Gilliam

As well as so many others. One of these years QE will be headed to Cannes for reviews, but not this year folks, (unless we can find a French correspondent or someone donates a few large, hah!)
