Security Pumped Up at Cannes Film Festival After Charlie Hebdo Shootings

“When Cannes rolls out the red carpet May 13, it will also be on red alert,” quips the Hollywood Reporter. Security will be greatly heightened at the legendary film festival, not due to any specific threat, but because of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, and what the Reporter confusingly describes as “a subsequent series of several smaller attacks against religious targets.”
