Running Time: 112 minutes
Ever since Harry Potter and Twilight spearheaded the craze of turning young adult fiction into films we’ve had a plethora of book-to-screen adaptations. Some have been good, others so not much. The current crown holder is of course The Hunger Games, but the franchise reaches it’s conclusion later this year with Mockingjay Part Two. There are many contenders waiting to snatch the crown away from Katniss and the Divergent series is just one franchise that is biding it’s time.
Starring Shailene Woodley, the series follows the antics of young woman Tris who seeks to change her dystopian world. Set during an undisclosed time period in the remains of a ruined Chicago, society has bundled itself behind a wall and has separated itself into ‘factions’. These »

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!
Below, we’ve compiled a selection of trailers for the films of 2015’s Toronto International Film Festival, »

Hot on the heels of the New York Film Festival announcing Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead as its Closing Night Selection (to go along with Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk as its Opening Night pick), we now know what the Centerpiece will be, and it’s a big one. Despite some buzz about a few other titles, it’s the hotly anticipated biopic Steve Jobs, which is directed by Danny Boyle, written by Aaron Sorkin, and stars Michael Fassbender. Talk about A-list star power, right? Since it was announced, this has been pegged as a big time Oscar hopeful, so landing one of the coveted three big spots at Nyff has done nothing to dissuade me of that notion. If you somehow don’t know who Steve Jobs is, this biopic should give you a sense of how important to the current technological culture he is. This look at the Apple »

The Danny Boyle-directed drama will debut at the annual event on October 3, six days before the film arrives in Us cinemas.
"Steve Jobs is dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it's extremely sharp; it's wildly entertaining, and the actors just soar - you can feel their joy as they bit into the material."
Boyle added: "I am honoured that our film has been selected »
Kate Winslet got personal while filming a recent episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls. The Titanic actress opens up about body image issues, telling Bear Grylls, "When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life. I only heard negatives. That's very damaging, because then you're programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look." The Oscar winner makes sure to give her daughter the encouragement she never had. "I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, 'We are so lucky we have a shape. We're so lucky we're curvy. We're so lucky we've got good bums," Winslet »
Kate Winslet sounds like she's an amazing mom! The Oscar-winning actress opened up about teaching her daughter Mia (and herself) positive body image during Monday's episode of "Running Wild with Bear Grylls." The "Titanic" star got extremely candid with Grylls while discussing her own self-esteem issues as the two built a fire together. "I was chubby, always had big feet, the wrong shoes, bad hair," she confessed during the episode. "When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life," she said, while exploring Snowdonia, Wales with Bear. "I only heard negatives. That's very damaging because then you're programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look." Now, as a mother, "The Reader" star says she's trying to prevent passing on her own insecurities by teaching her 14-year-old daughter to love herself. The mother-daughter duo even practice self-esteem reinforcing exercises together. »

"You jump, I jump, right?" Remember that line from Titanic? Kate Winslet sure does, and she re-created the famous moment from the movie that catapulted her career on this week's episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls. Winslet appeared on the same show that Zac Efron appeared on last Summer. It's really heartwarming to see that she still has fun with the role, since it's still so magical. »

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."

The explorer managed to get Winslet to recreate her iconic 'flying' scene from the 1997 blockbuster while abseiling down a cliff in Snowdonia, Wales for his Running Wild series.
Prepare for an adventure made for the movies.
Posted by Running Wild with Bear Grylls on Monday, July 27, 2015
Grylls asked Winslet to stop and spread her arms out wide, and it didn't take long for the actress to work out what he was trying to do.
Without further ado, she put on her best American accent and shouted: "Jack, I feel like I'm flying."
The scenes aired on Us TV for the first time last night (July 27), but unfortunately we're still waiting for news of a UK air date for the episode.
Winslet recently confirmed that her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio has never been romantic, adding that it is »
The 40th annual Toronto International Film Festival will open with Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts. Ridley Scott’s “The Martian,” with Matt Damon, and Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” were among the world premieres unveiled Tuesday during the Festival’s first major announcement.
In addition to more than a dozen Gala titles, more than 30 Special Presentations films were also revealed, with world premieres including Jay Roach’s “Trumbo” and Nicolas Hytner’s “The Lady In The Van.”
With the bulk of Toronto’s slate still under wraps, this first blast reflects the fest’s high-street persona in its mix of awards-season contenders (world-premiering pics alongside Sundance, Cannes and other fest-circuit notables), hot-topic cinema, high-profile Canadian titles, foreign pics likely to connect with North American audiences and star power.

Tiff 15’s list of Special Presentation is an incredible list of new films from Michael Moore (Where to Invade Next), Charlie Kaufmann (Anomalisa), Scott Cooper (Black Mass), Denis Villeneuve (Sicario), Tom Hooper (The Danish Girl), Cary Fukunaga (Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation), and Jacques Audiard (Dheepan).

Kate Winslet felt like she was flying while rappelling off the side of a mountain, so she took a moment to reenact an iconic scene from her 1997 film, “Titanic.” In Monday’s episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls,” Grylls took the Oscar-winning actress on a mountainous adventure. While the British TV personality waited for her at the bottom of the mountain, Winslet rappelled — not backwards, as usual, but forwards. Once she got the courage to lean forward and take her hands off the rope, she re-created the scene of the movie in which Jack (Leonardo Dicaprio) and Rose (Winslet) stand. »

Danny Boyle’s biopic starring Michael Fassbender as the digital age visionary who changed the face of personal computing, telephony and music will screen on October 3 as the centrepiece screening of the 53rd New York Film Festival.
Festival top brass Tweeted the news on Monday in a statement that pointedly did not say the event would mark the film’s world premiere, leaving open the likelihood of an early autumn world premiere.
Two of Boyle’s more recent films – 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire – launched at Telluride before journeying north to Toronto.
Nyff director and selection committee chair Kent Jones described the film as “dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it’s extremely sharp; it’s wildly enertaining, and the actors just soar.”

You know what is a horrible, no-good thing to do to a person? Have her rappel down the face of a cliff and then ask her to re-create one of the most iconic — nay, the iconic scene from late '90s cinema — while staring death in the face. That's what adventure man Bear Grylls did to Kate Winslet on Running Wild, when he asked her to spread her arms out wide. Of course, she indulged him. You deserve some grilled yak after that, Kate. »
