Cannes' done it again. After impressing over the past few years with posters that payed tribute to actresses (Juliette Binoche, Faye Dunaway and Marilyn Monroe), the Cannes Film Festival has chosen to showcase a famous Hollywood on/off screen couple, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, for their 2013 promo. The result is pretty magical.

Cannes' done it again. After impressing over the past few years with posters that payed tribute to actresses (Juliette Binoche, Faye Dunaway and Marilyn Monroe), the Cannes Film Festival has chosen to showcase a famous Hollywood on/off screen couple, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, for their 2013 promo artwork. The result is pretty magical.

In a release, the festival said they selected the duo to pay tribute to the memory of Newman (he passed away in 2008) and his "undying admiration for Woodward," his wife. The first film in which they appeared together, "The Long Hot Summer," played in competition at Cannes in 1958. Two of Newman's films, "The Effect of the Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" and "The Glass Menagerie," both starring Woodard, also screened at the festival.

The image on the poster, remastered and redesigned by the Bronx agencry, was taken during the filming of Melville Shavelson's 1963 film " A New Kind of Love." Check it out below:
