Cannes, France - The battle to buy the first commercial discovery of the 1998 Cannes International Film Festival began quietly enough.Before its first screening last Monday afternoon, no one had seen "Waking Ned," a comedy made with no movie stars by British first-time writer-director, Kirk Jones. Jones, 33, had just driven the print down from London - a 15-hour trip - because plane tickets were too expensive."Cannes is so much about hype, but we just [sneaked] in the back door," Jones said of his film.

Don't miss The Princess and the Frog . If you don't have kids at home, this probably isn't on your movie to-do list. So grab a pen and jot it down, because this return to the liquid beauty of hand-drawn animation from Disney, with big production numbers, is the best movie musical going. Hit a late-night screening, OK 10 is about as late as it gets, but that's past bedtime for little ones, so you'll find it a mostly adult affair. Settle in and consider these questions: Are you swept up by the brilliant artistry as the story unfolds - starry-eyed dreamer, frog prince, fateful kiss, bad mojo, good mojo?

The Hills Have Eyes (Fox Searchlight) Starring Ted Levine, Kathleen Quinlan, Aaron Stanford. Directed by Alexandre Aja. Rated R. Time 107 minutes.

TORONTO - Film festival bidding wars can get heated, but distributors and others in the biz are shaking their heads at just how much smoke Thank You for Smoking has generated. Jason Reitman's sharply funny adaptation of Christopher Buckley's novel is about a charismatic, unapologetic tobacco lobbyist, played by Aaron Eckhart with rakish charm. The high-powered cast - for an indie movie, at least - also includes Robert Duvall, Katie Holmes, William H. Macy and Maria Bello. Several distributors showed interest in acquiring the film, but the final showdown pitted Paramount Classics against Fox Searchlight.

A year ago, Fox Searchlight's celebrated July-August release was Little Miss Sunshine, a blast of humanity powered by the spluttering engine of a battered old VW van. Now the company is rolling out Sunshine, and unlike its predecessor, it's one big miss. Little Miss Sunshine made you feel part of a group quest as you traveled the distance between New Mexico and Southern California with a family of misfits; Sunshine freezes you out as you journey with a handful of scientists and astronauts from Earth to the sun. Set a half-century from now, Danny Boyle's spectacle about a mission to reignite our ailing star and save the planet is one of those high-style, highbrow science-fiction experiments that draws today's top directors the way Westerns did once upon a time.

Tomorrow, on its 29th day in American theaters, the British horror film 28 Days Later will be given a new ending. Moviegoers who endure the film's stark and terrifying depiction of an England all but wiped out by a rampaging virus will be able to choose how unsparing they want this apocalyptic vision of the future to be. The current ending - fairly upbeat given what has come before - will still be there. It will now be followed, however, by a four-minute sequence, beginning with the on-screen words "But what if," during which a darker, more desperate conclusion unfolds.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil This documentary about the blip and fall of a Canadian heavy-metal band conveys more strength and breadth and depth of emotion - more of the stuff that translates into art-and-entertainment staying-power - than most movies about painters or writers or classical composers. The big-haired bruisers of Anvil! have great heart and good humor - and so does this movie. *** 1/2 ( 3 1/2 STARS) Opening next Friday Every Little Step: (Sony Pictures Classics) This documentary follows dancers auditioning for A Chorus Line on Broadway and tells the musical's history as well.
