The sci-fi spoof, directed by David Giancola, will be released on DVD in America on May 1, but producer Scott Jones insisted on making a big splash in Europe because that's what Smith, who died in February, would have liked.
He says, "Everyone knows Anna would have loved to have the world premiere at Cannes. It is a market fitting for her and this film."
Smith not only starred in the film, she invested in it and co-produced it with her late son Daniel.
