This year’s edition of the Telluride Film Festival announced its lineup today, revealing that Colorado will play host this weekend to a variety of awards hopefuls. Jean-Marc Vallées’ Wild starring Reese Witherspoon, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game, and Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater are among the films that will have their world premiere at the festival. (Those movies will also all screen at the Toronto International Film Festival, which instituted new rules about premieres in an attempt to prevent films from making a Colorado pit stop before heading to Canada.) Films like Birdman and »

As Adam pointed out in Oscar Beat yesterday, four out of the last five Best Picture winners screened at both the Toronto International Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival. If that trend continues, we can really narrow down the Best Picture contenders now because the Telluride main program lineup was just announced. This year’s Toronto and Telluride crossovers (not including the documentaries and foreign language selections) are the Jack O’Connell-starrer ’71, Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, Madame Bovary with Mia Wasikowska, Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner, Rosewater starring Gael García Bernal and Wild with Reese Witherspoon. Hit the jump for more on what’s to come at the 2014 Telluride Film Festival. Here’s the full Main Program lineup for the event: The 50 Year Argument (d. Martin Scorsese, David Tedeschi, U.K.-U.S., 2014) '71 (d. Yann Demange, »

The 41st Telluride Film Festival, which has become a harbinger of heavyweight Oscar contenders over the past few years, has announced its schedule for the fest – which opens Friday and runs through Labor Day — just as a charter planeload of industry festgoers departs Lax. Despite a well-publicized battle with the upcoming Toronto Film Festival over Oscar-buzzed movies, Telluride honchos Tom Luddy, Gary Meyer and Julie Huntsinger have some pretty impressive contenders in the mix. Of course, film-freak paradise that it is, Telluride is not all about hot awards titles but a mix of programming that always whets the appetite of movie lovers who flock here each Labor Day weekend.
That said, Oscar watchers will be eagerly lining up for Fox Searchlight and New Regency’s Birdman, which is coming directly from its opening-night slot at the Venice Film Festival where it received rapturous reviews — not only for star Michael Keaton »

Mixing high-profile star power with offbeat titles, the 41st Telluride Film Festival is offering an impressive glimpse at an array of awards contenders over Labor Day weekend.
The four-day fest, which starts Friday with a tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” includes the first showings of Reese Witherspoon’s “Wild,” Benedict Cumberbatch’s “The Imitation Game,” Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater” and Mia Wasikowska’s “Madame Bovary” — the 10th film adaptation of the French novel.
The Venice Film Festival opener “Birdman,” which has vaulted Michael Keaton into awards contention, will also screen at Telluride. Ramin Bahrani’s housing crisis drama “99 Homes” is screening at both festivals as is Joshua Oppenheimer’s documentary “The Look of Silence.”
Several Cannes titles are coming to Telluride: Mike Leigh’s “Mr. Turner,” Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy,” the Dardenne Brothers’ workplace drama “Two Days, One Night,” Andrei Zvyagintsev’s “Leviathan »

Telluride — With all the reindeer games going on in the fall festival world, a lot of the drama and mystery surrounding Telluride's perennially on-the-lowdown program began to seep out like a steadily deflating balloon this year. Toronto, Venice and New York notations of "World Premiere," "Canada Premiere," "New York Premiere" or "International Premiere" and the like made it all rather obvious which films were heading to the San Juans for the 41st edition of the tiny mining village's cinephile gathering, and which were not. But the fact is, if you're in it just for the surprises — or certainly, for the awards-baiting heavies — you're never going to be fully satisfied by the Telluride experience. That having been said, this year's program might just be the most exciting one in my six years of attending. Starting with all of the stuff we were expecting, indeed, Cannes players "Foxcatcher," "Mr. Turner" and "Leviathan »

The lineup of the 41st Telluride Film Festival, which its organizers unveiled today, is packed with some of the most buzzed-about Oscar hopefuls. Among the films that are set to screen in the Rocky Mountains over Labor Day weekend are the world premieres of The Imitation Game, perhaps The Weinstein Co.'s most promising contender; Fox Searchlight's Wild, one of several Reese Witherspoon vehicles vying for attention this awards season; Open Road's Rosewater, Jon Stewart's directorial debut; another take on Madame Bovary, this one starring Mia Wasikowska, which is still seeking U.S. distribution; and Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi's HBO-

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Will We Ever Forgive George Lucas?” — Rob Bricken at io9 opens up the mail bag and answers an excellent assortment of queries. At the top of the pile, a smart take on what the new Star Wars movies would have to be like in order for the hissing crowds to crawl back to Lucas. “7 Deadly Sins Of Talking About Pop Culture” — Also at io9, Charlie Jane Anders beats down a list of no-nos. Beyond non-consensual spoilers, there’s a few great reminders here, but every single person needs to read #7 and repeat it as a mantra. “How Getting Wild Saved a ‘Lost’ Reese Witherspoon” — Kyle Buchanan at Vulture interviews the actress on the kind of role we don’t normally get to see her in. “You have to understand, for »

Elle Woods, is that you? Reese Witherspoon wore her Legally Blonde character's signature color to support a cancer-stricken fan via Instagram Wednesday. With a handmade sign in hand, the star explained her actions in the caption. "This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will—I hear that you're fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you've been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!" said the 38-year-old Wild star, who has three children of her own. "I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor—and I'm sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers," she wrote. »
“Honestly, I’ve done some movies that were really challenging, and I’ve done some movies that aren’t challenging at all,” confesses Reese Witherspoon, who dug in deep for a suite of provocative fall projects. In addition to a starring role in the Lost Boys of Sudan drama The Good Lie, Witherspoon produced David Fincher’s highly anticipated missing-wife thriller Gone Girl and pops up in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. She also took on her meatiest role in years with Wild (out December 5), which is based on the best-selling memoir by Cheryl Strayed and casts Witherspoon as a soul-searching woman embarking on a thousand-mile hike. “It’s rare to have the kind of opportunities I had making this film,” says Witherspoon, “and I treasured it.”In Wild, you play a character who’s addicted to heroin and sleeping around. We don’t often see you in projects like these. »

Summer is coming to an end, which means there are only a handful of days left to wear white pants and strike up a romance with someone you don’t see a future with. If you managed to get away to the beach, congratulations! You certainly know how to take advantage of the extra daylight, but you’ll never have as much fun as these celebrities did.
Leonardo DiCaprio‘s lustrous man bun seemed to hit every exclusive beach on the map, while Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez’s European jaunt went on for so long we almost sent out a missing persons report. Summer love doesn’t always last, but at least it gives us wonderful shirtless horseback riding photos.
In order to make the most of the days we have left, we’re looking to those who gave us vacation envy in order to learn how to do better. »

After racially-charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, made headlines this summer, there’s no denying that civil rights biopic Selma is going to strike a chord with many when it releases this winter. Starring David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr. and Carmen Ejogo as his wife Carmen Scott, the Ava DuVernay-directed pic centers on the influential march from Selma to Montgomery, which paved the way for the 1965 passage of the Voting Rights Act.
Whether the inspiring, resonant story at the heart of Selma will make it an Oscar contender remains to be seen. The latter half of 2014 will be filled with similarly high-profile biopics, many of which are already earning awards buzz. In the coming months, Tim Burton will unveil Big Eyes, about Margaret Keane and her husband Walter; Angelina Jolie »

Exclusive: In a bid to drive acquisitions, Toronto top brass are understood to be collaborating with select sales agents to allow festival staff and volunteers to attend four early-stage private buyers screenings.
Screendaily has learned the move is being orchestrated to replicate the buoyant atmosphere of public screenings in an effort to stir up sales.
The timing of the move is dictated by a growing recognition that most decision-makers at distribution companies will have left town by the time these films officially premiere in the second week, despite Toronto’s efforts to spread its riches across the duration of the festival.
That strategy was informed in part by the festival’s new and well documented policy of holding back until the second week premieres of anticipated films that will receive their actual world premiere in Telluride.
