Two blockbusters will have world premieres at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival opening Thursday, but neither "Fifty Shades of Grey" nor the new Disney live-action "Cinderella" will compete for the main Golden Bear prize.That's because the festival is more geared to arthouse films, which it will have aplenty from directors including Terrence Malick, Peter Greenaway, Wim Wenders and Pablo Larrain.In all, 23 films are being screened in competition of which 19 are in contention for the main prize, to be awarded on Feb. 14, the festival says.Such films assure the festival remains true to its roots, but the film adaptation of the international best-selling S&M soft-porn novel, plus Cate Blanchett as Cinderella's stepmother in the film directed by Kenneth Branagh, focus world attention.
