Massive Attack and actress Scarlett Johansson have finished a new song collaboration that's being used as the theme for a new movie that recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The Massive Attack / Scarlett Johansson song is titled Summertime and the film is titled Days of Grace, according to Clash Music. Massive Attack often feature guest vocalists on their songs, and Scarlett Johansson seems like a perfect match for their music. No word yet on future screenings, but we'll probably learn more as time plays out.

Massive Attack returned from a long hiatus last year with their album Heligoland, and Scarlett Johansson came to rise as a musician first by doing a Tom Waits cover album and then by collaborating with Pete Yorn.

The film Days of Grace, or "Días de gracia," is thriller about Mexican corruption and a hostage situation that takes place in 2002, 2006 and 2010 as three World Cup scenarios play out.
