Ethan Hawke stars in a really cool looking time travel thriller called Predestination. In the story he plays a “Temporal Agent,” who has pursued one criminal throughout his entire career. This looks like an intriguing story. It has a slight resemblance to the movie Minority Report, but it's different enough to be its own movie.
Predestination chronicles the life of a Temporal Agent (Ethan Hawke) sent on an intricate series of time-travel journeys designed to ensure the continuation of his law enforcement career for all eternity. Now, on his final assignment, the Agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.
There's no U.S. release date for the film yet. »

The concept of time travel is one thing. Entrusting time travel, and the fate of the world, to Ethan Hawke, really seems like quite another. But here we are, with Ethan Hawke: Time Cop keeping us safe from the world’s ills while we sit pretty in whatever linear concept of time and space we think actually exists. How foolish we’ve been this whole time. Fresh off his oft praised turn as the dadliest of dads in Boyhood, Hawke is trying his hand at sci-fi with Predestination, a film written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (his second collaboration with the Spierig Brothers after 2009′s Daybreakers) that answers the questions: is Ethan Hawke the hero we need right now, and is he the one we deserve? The premise for the film, laid out in the first trailer, is simple, but it doesn’t make any of the details any less dazzling. Hawke »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Predestination, the time travel project that reteams Ethan Hawke with his Daybreakers directors The Spierig Brothers. The last update we got was that Hawke had finished the film about a year ago, then nothing. Then today we suddenly get a trailer for the film based on the 1959 Robert Heinlein short story “All You Zombies.” And that trailer looks pretty cool. It definitely seems like it mixes elements of Minority Report with elements of Looper, though the dating of its source material should clear up any claims of aping the latter. Sarah Snook looks like she’s being put to unique use as well, with a remarkable transformation at the trailer's halfway point. My only real concern here is that they're showing too much. Sony will be distributing the film in the U.S. but a release date hasn’t been announced at the moment. »

About The Film
Boyhood: Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, »
The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.
The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

What if you could catch bad guys ... before they did bad things?
That's the premise behind "Predestination," a film based on Robert Heinlein's 1959 short story "All You Zombies." Ethan Hawke stars as a "temporal agent" who uses time travel to right wrongs -- before they happen. Basically, it's part "Minority Report," part "Looper."
As he explains to a new recruit (Sarah Snook), "We prevent crime before it takes place." His main mission is to stop a mass murderer by the name of "The Fizzle Bomber."
The recently-released trailer hints at some mind-bending twists and Wtf-worthy moments. Unfortunately, we don't know when we'll get to unravel them, as there's no U.S. release date yet (it opens Aug. 28 in Australia).

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has fired its awards season opening salvo, announcing a slew of world premieres for the September edition, which will close with Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos.Scroll down for full list
Not to be outdone by the New York Film Festival, which has staked a claim to the world premieres of Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, and Venice, which will open with Birdman, artistic director Cameron Bailey and his team announced on Tuesday (22) close to 50 galas and special presentations.
Two factors are certain to ratchet up the sense of anticipation heading into September. Most of these titles are without Us distribution and that said, it remains to be seen which films will qualify for a coveted first-weekend slot.
Tiff top brass made it clear earlier this year that any title that sneaks into Telluride will be forced to screen after the first four days of the festival. Tiff runs from »

He’s a temporal agent, traveling back and forth through time, »
