Brad touches down in Cannes

As the sea along the Cote D’Azur shimmered in the sunshine, Brad Pitt arrived to add some sparkle to his familiar springtime haunt, the Cannes Film Festival, people.com reports.

Pitt was spotted Saturday at the Hotel du Cap, having lunch on a balcony after flying in from the U.S.

The star is in the South of France for his fourth film fest appearance in five years. Angelina Jolie is expected to join him in the next few days.

On this visit Pitt is showcasing his movie from director Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds, which premieres at the festival Wednesday. The filmmaker has described Pitt’s character in the WWII drama as “a hillbilly straight from the mountains of Tennessee.”
