May 9, 2008 |  3:37 pm


We have an exclusive sneak peek of the new Fernando Meirelles thriller "Blindness," the opening night film at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

"Blindness," based on the bestselling 1998 novel by Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese writer José Saramago, stars Julianne Moore as an ophthalmologist's wife who ends up as the last survivor with sight in a city racked by a sudden onset of mass vision loss.

Fernando Meirelles' third film, after his heralded 2002 thriller "City of God" and 2005's "The Constant Gardener," landed the coveted opening night slot at the 61st annual festival on the French Croisette starting Wednesday.

See the video and a story about the film here.
