The new film by George Miller, Three Thousand Years of Longing will have its world premiere at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival as part of the Official Selection.
Two images were released with the announcement, you can view it here.
Here's the official synopsis:
Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is content with life and comes at the world with a healthy scepticism. Despite this she encounters a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.
This is a problem because she is a scholar of narrative and knows all the cautionary tales about wishes gone wrong. He pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.
The Cannes International Film Festival will take place from 17 to 28 May 2022.
