Premiere of Miles Teller's Too Old to Die Young

At the Cannes Film Festival, where streaming giant Netflix is no longer welcome, filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn talked about the joys of working in the contentious digital medium and how its promotes creativity.

The filmmaker is presenting his upcoming Amazon series Too Old to Die Young at the annual film extravaganza, which has banned Netflix from its competition line-up after an uproar over its presence in the 2017 edition.

Too Old to Die Young features Miles Teller as a grieving police officer who, along with the man who shot his partner, finds himself in the underworld filled with working-class hit men, Yakuza soldiers, cartel assassins sent from Mexico, Russian mafia captains and gangs of teen killers. Besides Teller, the 10-episode show also features John Hawkes, Jena Malone and Billy Baldwin.

The Whistlers cast attend the red carpet

Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu premiered his film The Whistlers at Cannes yesterday, reports Variety. The Whistlers follows a Bucharest police officer who gets involved in a high-profile heist and finds himself in the Spanish island of La Gomera. It features Vlad Ivanov in the lead.
