Actor Orlando Bloom and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell-Horner were at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday to promote "Gran Turismo", based on a true story about a video game player who used his skills to become a professional racing driver.
"Grand Turismo" follows Jann Mardenborough, a teenager from Wales who in 2011 beat other participants of a competition for players of the PlayStation racing simulation for the chance to compete in a real-life event.
The film is due to be released in theatres this August.
Director Neill Blomkamp, behind films such as "Chappie" and "District 9", said Mardenborough was involved in writing the script as well as was on set during the filming.
Archie Madekwe, who was in the 2019 folk horror "Midsommar", plays Mardenborough, who now races in Japan's Super GT series, in the film distributed by Sony Pictures.
For the role, Madekwe spent a lot of time behind the wheel: "I drove a lot. I drove a lot more than I knew I was going to be driving. I kind of can't really believe that I did it."
Halliwell-Horner plays Jann's mother, while Bloom is a motorsport marketing executive.
Bloom said on Friday that the film showed anyone can dream big. "You have this very honest, real and true-to-life story, which is, I think, something everyone can relate to," he said.
The 75th Cannes Film Festival is set to open Tuesday night with the premiere of Michel Hazanavicius' zombie comedy "Final Cut.”
"This is my first lead. I've done a lot of theatre and some very small and not that great stuff in Norwegian films and TV," she laughed.
The actor and his wife seemingly scolded an employee as they attended the premiere of his new movie 'Asteroid City.'
Raghav looked dapper in a mehndi green-coloured kurta, paired with a white pyjama and a floral sleeveless Nehru jacket.
Daniels, who has performed close to 600 small gigs with his guitar, was never interested in linear storytelling, preferring instead to use his songs to wrap stories around.
She wrote, "Picture perfect... sending so much love to the newlyweds on their special day!" Priyanka welcomed her cousin's husband Raghav to the Chopra family, saying, "hope you’re ready to dive into the crazy with us."
"How do you think that I find love in my life," she asked, prompting Miles to respond with, "Pick a person that looks kind." The most adorable part came right after, when Miles put his tiny hand on Rodrigo's knee before telling her, "I really hope you find love."
