Get ready for the Cannes Film Festival to heat up: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are about to walk the red carpet.

Jolie is expected to arrive Thursday for Kung Fu Panda 2, while Pitt is due next Monday for the Terrence Malick drama The Tree of Life. The couple are expected to walk the red carpet together for his premiere.

The pair have a history at Cannes.

In 2008, Jolie’s Panda costar Jack Black let it slip that she was expecting twins (Jolie hadn’t confirmed the news up until that point).

"You're gonna have as many as [the] Brady Bunch when you have these," he said during a chat with Today show's Natalie Morales.

Asked if Black’s remarks were true, Jolie responded, "Yeah, yeah, we've confirmed that already. Well, Jack's just confirmed it actually."

In the past, Jolie also has wowed critics with films she’s premiered at the fest, including the Clint Eastwood drama Changeling.

Pitt also has showcased some of the best works of his career at the festival, including in 2009 when he premiered Quentin Tarantino's  Inglourious Basterds.
