49 movies from 28 different countries will take their unique stories to this year's Cannes Film Festival, with the 2016 jury chaired by none other than Mad Max: Fury Road's George Miller. Woody Allen's Café Society, starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, will open the festival with an out-of-competition screening ahead of similar showings from Steven Spielberg's childhood-tackling BFG and Jodie Foster's Money Monster:

American Honey, the movie that briefly put Shia LaBeouf in stitches while shooting, will screen in competition against Sean Penn's The Last Face, Nicole Garcia's Mal de Pierres, and many more. The festival, which is often criticized for its lack of representation of women in the film industry, will feature three films in this year's competition directed by women. Three.

The 69th edition of the storied festival runs from May 11 to 22, meaning you have roughly a month to place your Palme d'Or bets. Peep the full in-competition lineup below, then argue (and/or enter a state of serious financial risk) amongst yourselves:
