CANNES PHOTOS: Festival gets into full swing on Day 2 with Hawke, McQueen, 'Monster' and more Depp

CANNES, France (AP) — Ethan Hawke and his “Strange Way of Life" co-stars showed off their itchy trigger fingers on the second day of the Cannes Film Festival.

Hawke, who stars with Pedro Pascal in “Strange Way of Life,” a Western from Pedro Almodóvar, used their hands as pretend guns while photographers snapped away Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Johnny Depp continued his return to the festival circuit with a press conference where he declared he had “no further need for Hollywood.” His “Jeanne du Barry” director and co-star, Maïwenn, posed for photos at a site with the French Riviera as the backdrop.

The site was an early stop for Hawke and his co-stars, and for actor John C. Reilly, who is leading the jury in the festival's Un Certain Regard section.

Also Wednesday, director Steve McQueen premiered his four-hour documentary “Occupied City,” a joint project with his wife that juxtaposes modern scenes in Amsterdam with details about Nazi atrocities that happened there.

By nightfall, the attention had turned to a film in competition at the festival, “Monster,” from Hirokazu Kore-eda, where glamourous looks from stars like Hawke, Gemma Chan, model Sara Sampaio and EGOT-winner Viola Davis abounded.
