The 76th Venice Film Festival sees a highly anticipated line-up compete for the coveted Golden Lion award, with many big Hollywood pictures making their premiere at the annual showcase

Hirokazu Kore-eda – who won the Palm d’Or at Cannes for his 2018 film Shoplifters – opened the festival on Wednesday night with his newest picture The Truth.

Leading the so-called Hollywood contenders is the much-anticipated Joker, directed by The Hangover’s Todd Phillips, and sees the acclaimed Joaquin Phoenix play the iconic DC villain in a realistic take on his origin story.

Set in the 1980s, the film has already sparked awards buzz for Phoenix’s performance, as the film tells the story of Arthur Fleck, a man so down on his luck he becomes a murderous psychopath hellbent on causing havoc in Gotham.

Another film boosted by Hollywood star power is Ad Astra, which stars Brad Pitt as an astronaut who journeys into space to find his lost father, played by Tommy Lee Jones.

The film is directed by James Gray, who has competed for the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival on several occasions, including his 2013 film The Immigrant.

The Laundromat – directed by Steven Soderbergh and the first of Netflix’s Venice contenders – also makes its debut, starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, and recalls the infamous Panama Papers scandal. 

Marriage Story – which stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver – will also compete for the Golden Lion, and tells the story of a couple’s gruelling divorce. The film is also being distributed by Netflix.

The jury will be led by Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel, and also features Canadian critic Piers Handling, Japanese actor Shinya Tsukamoto and British actress Stacy Martin, who landed her breakout role in 2013 as the younger version of sex addict Joe in the Lars Von Trier erotic drama Nyphomaniac.

Venice also faced backlash last year when not one of its Golden Lion contenders was helmed by a female director. 

This year marks a slight improvement, with two female-directed films, Babyteeth and The Perfect Candidate.

Julie Andrews, 83, will also be awarded with the coveted Honorary Lion for Life’s Work to celebrate her incredible 55 years in the film industry.

Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger, 76, will also make an appearance on the closing night, as he stars in thriller The Burnt Orange Heresy directed by Giuseppe Capotondi.

Jagger takes on a lead role as an art collector determined to acquire a piece by a legendary painter.
