The 75th Cannes Film Festival is taking place this week, with stars from every corner of the world descending on the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals this week.

A raft of star-studded premieres for upcoming films are set to take place over the 11-day festival, including Top Gun: Maverick, starring Tom Cruise who is returning to the festival for the first time in 30 years, and the biopic Elvis starring Austin Butler.
