Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe will be in Cannes. Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees will be screened in competition at the festival. Gus Van Sant + McConaughey? I’m definitely intrigued. The Croisette is going to lose its mind with the return of McConaughey, now an Oscar winner, to the Palais. The last time he was there was in 2012 for Mud, one of the films that turned around how we see his career.

Yesterday Matthew was at home in Texas at the Mack, Jack & McConaughey charity gala. Yesterday the new Star Wars trailer was released. What happens when Matthew McConaughey and the Star Wars trailer meet?

A reader called Matthew, conveniently, sent this to me today. I found it so much more watchable than Interstellar which, frankly, bored me. Another reason to love the internet.
