Come Wednesday, all the previews will be for naught. Curtains will raise, and the 2011 Cannes Film Festival will officially be underway. However, it’s not quite that date yet, and in the meantime some major films are getting some much needed hype prior to the festival.

First up, we have a new clip from the upcoming film from THE MAN WITHOUT A PAST director Aki Kaurismaki, entitled LE HAVRE, and it’s quite solid. The film follows an author who is sent into exile on the port that the film derives its title from, and we watch as he tries to pen his novel. He meets an African refugee and must also take care of his dying wife. It is set to bow in competition, and should be a solid return for the Cannes award winner that is Aki Kaurismaki. The footage looks superb, and overall, it’s hard to find a film that is more intriguing than this one.

Next, director Maiwenn Le Besco has seen a trailer for his film, POLISSE released, and again, it looks fantastic. It follows the Juvenile Protection Unit in France, and revolves around the branch coming under scrutiny. It’s an intriguing premise and this trailer/clip really makes this look as though it is quite a gem. Check out those two below.

Finally, just a few hours after one clip was released, three more clips have hit from the upcoming Lynne Ramsay film, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, and still it looks absolutely fan-freaking-tastic. Head over to Flix for the new clips.
