'All is Lost' trailer tests Oscar winds for Robert Redford -- VIDEO

A lot of movies give their trailers the silent treatment, with powerful images and an evocative musical score responsible for conveying the drama. But in All Is Lost, which stars Robert Redford as an old man whose sailboat is slammed with one misfortune after another, the spare trailer accurately reflects the film, which is practically devoid of dialogue. Not that you’ll miss it, or wish there was a Bengal tiger or Wilson volleyball stowed aboard as he tries to stay alive. It’s just Redford, the camera, and the cruel winds of mother nature.

The movie, directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call), won raves when it premiered at Cannes in May, with some predicting an Oscar nomination for Redford, who has never won for Best Actor despite iconic turns in Butch Cassidy, The Sting, and Out of Africa.

The jury is rounded out by five film vets from five more countries: Indian actress Vidya Balan, a Bollywood star who will also celebrate 100 years of the genre at a gala screening of Bombay Talkies; Japanese director Naomi Kawase, whose films have won Cannes’s Camera d’Or (in 1997) and Grand Prize (2007); British screenwriter/director Lynne Ramsay, whose film We Need to Talk About Kevin won praise at Cannes in 2011; French actor Daniel Auteuil, a BAFTA winner who snagged Cannes’s Best Actor award in 1996; and Cristian Mungiu, a three-time Cannes winner for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, as well as last year’s Best Screenplay winner at the fest.

Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, will open Cannes on May 15. It will close with a screening of Zulu, a political thriller starring Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker, on May 26.
