Kevin Smith’s Tusk Will Premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

13 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Writer/director Kevin Smith’s new horror film, Tusk will enjoy its world premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Smith and Tusk join a long list of established and emerging directors that fill this year’s Tiff slate, which showcases new documentary films by Nick Broomfield, Ethan Hawke, The Yes Men, Joshua Oppenheimer, Frederick Wiseman, Jonathan Nossiter, and first-timers Marah Strauch and Tamara Erde and opens with David Dobkin’s The Judge.

From the singular mind of writer/director and podcaster Kevin Smith, and conceived from one of Smith’s own “Smodcast’s,” Tusk is a story unlike anything that has ever been committed to screen before. A tale that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying, Tusk will stay with you long after the credits roll.

The film is written and directed by Kevin Smith and stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, and Michael Parks. »

Kevin Smith’s Tusk And Face Of An Angel Among New Tiff Selections

29 July 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kevin Smith’s walrus-themed horror-comedy Tusk, Michael Winterbottom’s Amanda Knox-inspired thriller Face of an Angel and several big titles from last spring’s Cannes Film Festival are among a new batch of films announced to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival. Tiff released its list of films from the Midnight Madness, Tiff Docs, Vanguard and Master programs on Tuesday, which include several world and North American premieres.

Midnight Madness, a popular place for buzzworthy genre films, will screen Smith’s Tusk, which stars Justin Long as a podcaster who gets more than he bargained for when he interviews a creepy seafarer (Michael Parks). Other notable titles include Big Game, a survivalist thriller from Rare Exports director Jalmari Helander with Samuel L. Jackson as the president of the United States fending for his life after Air Force One crashes in the forest. Also, Sundance favorite The Guest, from You’re Next director Adam Wingard, »

'Grim Sleeper,' 'Yes Men' and Iraq docs set for world premieres at Toronto Film Festival

29 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Toronto International Film Festival is known for its Oscar bait prestige dramas, major Hollywood studio releases, a focus (appropriately) on Canadian film and, to a lesser extent, its Midnight Madness program. One thing it doesn't have a strong reputation for is documentaries. That's why it's no surprise that only six of the initial 15 documentaries announced for the 2014 festival this morning are world premieres.   Even with a 25th anniversary screening of Michael Moore's "Roger & Me" on deck, this year's documentary slate appears weak. Joshua Oppenheimer will screen his Indonesian genocide doc "The Look of Silence," Ethan Hawke has his nonfiction directing debut "Seymour: An Introduction" and Cannes favorite "Red Army" will be on hand, but all of those films debuted or will debut somewhere else first. Intriguing new docs include "Tales of the Grim Sleeper," about a serial killer's 25-year run in Southern California; "Sunshine Superman," about Base jumping »

2014 Tiff: Wiseman, Yes Men, Oppenheimer, Ethan Hawke & Broomfield Offer Docu Treats

29 July 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

This world is indeed a dangerous place and according to Tiff Doc programmer Thom Powers’ it might just be the docu filmmakers and subjects who are truly the “rebels, resisters and risk-takers” of the festival. While there might be a couple of more docu items in store along with a look back at Michael Moore’s Roger & Me, both Toronto, and Telluride auds will be in for treats with the Cannes invited Gabe Polsky’s Red Army and Venice Film Festival competing The Look of Silence (see pic above) from Joshua Oppenheimer (which is easily our most anticipated doc of the year) and Robert Kenner’s Merchants of Doubt — about the greediest folk there are: the spinsters (prediction: look for Kenner to be invited on Real Time with Bill Maher). Other hot commodities include World Premiere status latest from the Laura Nix & The Yes Men (The Yes Men Are Revolting »

Fantasia 2014: The predictable elements of ‘Predestination’ are compensated with emotional satisfaction

29 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written and directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig (credited as The Spierig Brothers)

Australia, 2014

A guy walks into a bar, and he says, “Ouch!”

Two guys walk into a bar – second guy should have seen it coming.

That joke your grandfather told you could easily double for the pitch to Predestination, the new paradoxical time travel riddle by Australian directing duo The Spierig Brothers.

Based on Robert A. Heinlein’s short story All You Zombies, Predestination sees an unnamed agent (Ethan Hawke) for the temporal agency leap through time to catch an elusive serial murderer known as The Fizzle Bomber before he destroys over ten city blocks in New York. The only problem is the bomber seems to be aware of the attempts to stop him, as he keeps changing the specific day and time of his latest catastrophe. While undercover as a bartender, Hawke’s agent strikes »

Toronto Film Fest to Premiere ‘Tusk,’ Amanda Knox-Inspired ‘Face of an Angel’

29 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kevin Smith’s horror comedy-drama “Tusk,” Michael Winterbottom’s hot commodity “The Face of an Angel,” and doc-comedy “The Yes Men Are Revolting” are among the titles set to world preem at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival, which unveiled its auteur-driven Midnight Madness, Masters, Tiff Docs and Vanguard slates this morning.

Midnight Madness, a reliably lively zone for genre-pic launches and pickups, opens with Japanese helmer Sion Sono’s “Tokyo Tribe,” an adaptation of a popular hip-hop-inspired manga comic. The pic receives its international preem, as does Mark Hartley’s “Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films” (Drafthouse), the second documentary this year about the rise and fall of that filmmaking empire, after the Cannes-premiered “The Go-Go Boys.”

Aside from Smith’s labor of love “Tusk,” which stars Justin Long and will be released by A24, Midnight will unspool world preems of Jaume Balaguero’s “[Rec] 4: Apocalypse” (the fourth »

From Coldplay to Lorde, take a trip through 12 years of music with 'Boyhood' playlists

25 July 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Have you had a chance to see "Boyhood" yet? If so, have you told us what you thought? This one is really feeling like something special, and I must admit, early on I had doubts about whether IFC would apply the proper mustard for a campaign, but it's increasingly clear this is a special case for them. Masterpieces are left hanging out to dry during Oscar season all the time, but this one really is maintaining a hold. It's hard to ignore something this special, so the indie haven could be in line for its first-ever Best Picture nomination. But forget all of that for now. The movie itself is a fascinating time capsule. I found myself sort of keeping track of the story's progression by noting song choices throughout. Music obviously plays a central role in all of our lives, and I was charmed by the plot point concerning "The Black Album, »

‘Boyhood’ Review

25 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Boyhood follows the life of Mason, Jr. (Ellar Coltrane) from age six to eighteen. When his parents, Mason, Sr. (Ethan Hawke) and Olivia (Patricia Arquette) divorce, Mason, Jr. and his eight-year-old sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), are up-rooted from their hometown, moved across Texas, and enrolled in new schools. As their father attempts to get his life together and reunite the family, following years of aimless odd-jobs and music gigs, their single mother strives to better herself in academia – in order to provide a more stable life for her children on her own.

Over the course of the next twelve years, father, mother, daughter, and son all grow and change - molded by each other’s choices and challenging life events. Still, from grade school to graduation, Mason, Jr. forges ahead, attempting to find his way in an intimate ...

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Last Days

25 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman's final film, A Most Wanted Man, hitting theaters today, we are reprinting David Browne's cover story on the actor's final days from our February 27th issue. 

Slouched in the front row of the labyrinth Theater Company's performance space in New York's West Village last May, Philip Seymour Hoffman was his typical focused, superdisciplined self. In the intimate 90-seat theater, Hoffman – always dressed in one or another of his seemingly interchangeable baggy pants and sweaters – was relentlessly pushing the cast and crew of the play he was directing, »
