Sofia Coppola's comic drama Somewhere and Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan will have their world premieres at the Venice Film Festival.

They are among some 22 titles that will vie for the prestigious Golden Lion, organisers said.

Sofia, 39, will showcase her movie starring Stephen Dorff as a bad-boy actor struggling through life. The film also stars Natalie Portman and Winona Ryder.

Darren, 41, returns to Venice with a psychological thriller two years after winning the top prize for his drama The Wrestler.

In all, 79 world premieres will be shown at Venice from September 1 to 11.

Lindsay Lohan's latest movie, Machete, is opening the Venice International Film Festival.

The action film directed by Robert Rodriguez - which stars Danny Trejo with Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson and Robert De Niro, as well as featuring Li-Lo - will have its world premiere at the festival.

Ben Affleck is premiering The Town in Venice, out of competition, his second film as director after Gone Baby Gone. He also stars in the movie as a bank robber who has fallen for a bank manager he met on a heist.

Casey Affleck will be showing his documentary I Am Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix.

You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
