A battalion of Hollywood heavyweights will lead a US invasion of next month's Venice film festival, the organisers announced Thursday. Six big-name American films led by Mel Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge" about a World War II army medic who was the only conscientious objector ever to win the Congressional Medal of Honor, are headlining the glitzy Italian gathering which starts on August 31. It will also see a swathe of other much-anticipated premieres including legendary director Terrence Malick's 3D documentary about "the birth and death" of the universe, "Voyage of Time".
