Cannes Film Festival attendees will be able to enjoy a damn fine cup of coffee while watching David Lynch's much-anticipated Twin Peaks revival.
The new season will be premiering at the glitzy film festival, with two episodes showing as part of Cannes's 70th edition, running May 17-28.
Two eerie new teasers were unveiled for Twin Peaks season three back in February, ahead of the series premiering its first four episodes on Showtime in the US on Sunday, May 21 at 9pm ET, with Sky Atlantic simulcasting in the UK.
It marks the first time that Cannes has ventured into TV, and they've chosen two of their former prizewinners to do it.
Lynch picked up the Palme d'Or – the festival's top honour – in 1990 for Wild at Heart, while Top of the Lake's Jane Campion won it in 1993 for The Piano and remains the ONLY female director to have scooped the prize.
It does, however, have the premiere of Netflix's fantasy film Okja, Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix, and Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, starring Colin Farrell and Kirsten Dunst.
Farrell and Kidman also star in Yorgos Lanthimos's The Lobster follow-up The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which is selected in the Official Competition.
Kristen Stewart's directorial debut with short film Come Swim will also be playing at Cannes.
