Is Toronto Film Festival Losing Its Awards Mojo?

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Toronto’s lineup, announced Tuesday, has awards pundits drooling in anticipation, but here’s some free advice: Wipe away the drool and manage your expectations.

A few years ago, the Canadian fest was the focus of many awards campaigns. But the situation is changing so quickly that Toronto is still a big factor, but it’s no longer the key factor. And that’s a good thing for everybody.

There are certainly plenty of tantalizing Toronto titles. The ones that sound (on paper) like strong awards contenders include “Black and White” (Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in a custody battle), “The Equalizer” (Denzel Washington, reuniting with Antoine Fuqua), “The Imitation Game” (Benedict Cumberbatch), “The Judge” (Robert Downey Jr., pictured), “Men, Women and Children” (directed by Jason Reitman), “Nightcrawler” (Jake Gyllenhaal, in Dan Gilroy’s film-directing debut), and “Theory of Everything” (Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking), as well as Cannes hits like “Foxcatcher” and “Mr. Turner. »

Naomi Watts In Talks To Join Demolition With Jake Gyllenhaal

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After his Dallas Buyers Club became one of the most critically lauded movies of 2o13, landing six Oscar nominations and winning two (for Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto’s performances), Jean-Marc Vallee quickly proved himself to be one of the most promising directors working today, and he looks set to return to the Oscar stage next year with Wild, a Reese Witherspoon-powered awards contender. How do you follow up two projects as impressive and intriguing as those? In Vallee’s case, he’s sticking to his guns with Demolition, a story of individuals struggling against seemingly insurmountable obstacles both internal and external.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as “a young investment banker struggling to understand his emotional disconnect following the tragic death of his wife in an auto accident. As he tears apart his life in a distraught effort to see where he went wrong, he becomes obsessed with destruction.”

Reese Witherspoon in Two French-Canadian Toronto Film Festival Movies

21 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's actually pretty common for movie stars to appear in more than one movie at the Toronto Film Festival. In the past, A-listers like George Clooney and Bradley Cooper have pulled double-duty, with two very different movies on the bill.

It seems like this year, Reese Witherspoon is offering us a double-dose of her movies. One is the much-anticipated "Wild," directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, and the other is "The Good Lie," directed by Philippe Falardeau. »

Toronto International Film Festival unveils first wave of films for 2014

21 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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.

Whether or not this was the right move, Tiff has still managed to secure the films of Noah BaumbachDavid Cronenberg, Lone Scherfig, »

23 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, the question was whether or not the Toronto International Film Festival's new rules about premieres—telling distributors that any movie playing the festival in the first four days couldn't screen anywhere else (sorry Telluride)—would hurt their ability to curate an attractive lineup. Well, put those fears aside as the fest has unveiled a pretty solid first wave of titles. So what's coming? Where do we start? Right at the top of the list of awards contender "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Noah Baumbach's anticipated "While We're Young," "Nightcrawler" with Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children," the Tom Hardy starrer "The Drop," a Reese Witherspoon double bill with "Wild" and "The Good Lie," Susanne Bier's "A Second Chance" and many more.
