Despite initial rumors that the movie would open this year's annual rite of spring in the South of France – to run from May 14-25 – the movie, which also stars Shia LaBeouf and original Raiders of the Lost Ark costar Karen Allen, is due to be screened out-of-competition in Cannes, as a special festival centerpiece, on May 18, reports Variety.
The movie opens in the rest of the world on May 22.
So far, no comment confirming the booking has come from Paramount Pictures or filmmakers George Lucas or Steven Spielberg, reports Britain's Guardian newspaper.
