Even though we’re still only on the first wave of film selections for the year, the Toronto International Film Festival has a good representation of the world’s best filmmakers, including Canada’s Denis Villeneuve and Jean-Marc Vallée. The latter Quebecois director opens the Festival with latest movie, Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
This year’s lineup is also already pretty stacked on the actor front, boasting new films with the aforementioned Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet, Idris Elba, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eddie Redmayne, Helen Mirren, Jason Bateman, Julianne Moore, Tom Hardy, Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Caine.
Clearly we could keep listing Hollywood’s best and brightest stars who have films at Tiff this year, but we won’t. Let’s get to those trailers already!

In her long, varied, Oscar-winning career, one thing Diane Keaton hasn’t done is play a regular role on a TV series. She looks set to change all that, joining the cast of Paolo Sorrentino’s new show The Young Pope.Admittedly, it’s only an eight-episode commitment, a collaboration between Sky, HBO and Canal Plus, but it’s a new project for Keaton, who has appeared in miniseries, TV movies and guest roles before, but is here playing Sister Mary, an American nun living in Vatican City.And the show follows the early days of a fictional pope, played by Jude Law, who is born Lenny Belardo. He’s a complicated, conflicted guy, worried that his calling will mean losing those close to him and concerned about being abandoned by everyone, even God. But he’s committed to his mission of spreading the church’s word.According to Sorrentino, »
The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate. Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition." It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next." Notable films that will have premiered »

Fans of David Cronenberg and Brian De Palma are in for a treat this summer and fall, as The Criterion Collection will release the former's The Brood and the latter's Dressed to Kill on respective Blu-rays.
From The Criterion Collection: The Brood: "A disturbed woman is receiving a radical form of psychotherapy at a remote, mysterious institute. Meanwhile, her five-year-old daughter, under the care of her estranged husband, is being terrorized by a group of demonic beings. How these two story lines connect is the shocking and grotesque secret of this bloody tale of monstrous parenthood from David Cronenberg, starring Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar. With its combination of psychological and body horror, The Brood laid the groundwork for many of the director’s films to come, but it stands »

Written and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, shot by Emmanuel Lubezki (a pairing that dominated this year’s Oscars for their work on Birdman) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, there’s not really much of a question whether The Revenant is going to be any good. Heck, it’s pretty damn certain this’ll be great – the latest trailer (viewable below) has just dropped and it looks incredible; there’s little in the way of plot, but the teaser sets both the tone and scope of this western thriller brilliantly.
No, the big question about the movie is whether it’ll be the film to finally get DiCaprio his Oscar.
It’s become a running joke in recent years that one of the greatest living actors (seriously) has been consistently snubbed at the Academy Awards – he’s only been nominated four times for acting (and »

After much controversy was made of his Kickstarter campaign to part-fund last year’s Wish I Was Here, actor/writer/director Zach Braff has been speaking to an American podcast about his experiences with crowd-funding and whether he would do it again if a project required it.
Speaking on “Off Camera with Sam Jones” (via IndieWire), the Scrubs star has finally opened up about the whole experience with crowdfunding the film and how many commentators on the internet spoke negatively of him after he had decided to pursue the Kickstarter avenue.
On the show, which runs at around 85-minutes, Braff speaks out about the campaign and the film itself. He said: “I felt the whole thing and the giant cultural conversation around it that it started, was misunderstood. With some Monday morning quarterbacking , I really never ever thought it would be so controversial. I really just wanted to make something with my artistic integrity intact. »

Harvey Keitel: 'I’d seen Paolo Sorrentino’s Il Divo and The Great Beauty and I wanted to work with him' Photo: Film Servis Karlovy Vary There is an aura about Harvey Keitel, one of cinema's roughest diamonds, that cannot be easily explained. He sports crumpled features atop massive shoulders, his frame bulky and short, it would make an effective human battering ram. His brow carries perpetual furrows of inner contemplation. And at 76, Keitel, has a reputation, rivalled only by Robert De Niro, for being a notoriously tough interviewee.
He agrees, however, to be the perfect charmer for his appearance at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival which closes its 50th edition tonight (July 11). He chatted intently with fans at the Festival’s Vodafone series of talks and introduced screenings of Paolo Sorrentino’s Youth, in which he plays a director looking to make his swan song, opposite his friend Michael Caine, »

Stars: Bob Hoskins, Cathy Tyson, Robbie Coltrane, Michael Caine, Clarke Peters, Kate Hardie, Zoë Nathenson, Sammi Davis, Rod Bedall, Joe Brown, Pauline Melville | Written by Neil Jordan, David Leland | Directed by Neil Jordan
The second of Arrow Video’s recent Bob Hoskins releases, Mona Lisa may be the better movie of the two. When you look at the quality of The Long Good Friday and how good the movie is, this should be taken as a hint about how good this release from Arrow Video is. Not heavy in special features, it is the movie that speaks for itself both in the quality of the restoration and how relevant the film still feels to this day.

Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife.

Lionsgate is betting big on Vin Diesel to launch a new franchise this fall in The Last Witch Hunter, which finds the Fast and Furious actor taking on the role of an immortal warrior bent on the destruction of witches who would otherwise destroy the world.
