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 »

Film Society of Lincoln Center, the New York not-for-profit that runs the 53-year-old Nyff, opted to shift the high-profile opening night screening to alleviate the logistical and security snarls they anticipate around the pope’s visit to the city. Pope Francis has a full day of activities — including a visit to East Harlem in the afternoon and an early-evening mass at Madison Square Garden — planned for Sept. 25, the night “The Walk” was originally scheduled to screen.
Nyff will still open its 2015 edition that day with free festival programming yet to be announced, but “The Walk,” still considered the fest’s opening film, will screen Sept. 26. Zemeckis’ movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as high-wire artist Philippe Petit, the man »

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 »
Some of the most anticipated movies of the Fall will make their debut at the four major festivals that annual suck up the movie world's attention during a five-week period beginning in September. The New York Film Festival has already revealed that "The Walk," "Steve Jobs" and "Miles Away" will be its major galas. The 40th Toronto International Film Festival announced its initial wave of selections on Tuesday giving away many of the "secret" premieres at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day weekend. Earlier this month Venice announced it would open with Universal Pictures' "Everest" and debut Scott Cooper's "Black Mass" with Johnny Depp out of competition. Now, the festival has unveiled a majority of its slate with some very exciting surprises. The biggest news is that Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl" will have its world premiere in Venice. The highly anticipated drama has already generated »

Scott Foundas: Well, the cat is really out of the bag now. After weeks of intense blogosphere speculation about the fall festival season and palate-whetting gala announcements from the New York Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival kicked things into high gear this morning when it announced more than 40 titles that will comprise the festival’s Gala and Special Presentations categories come September. It’s a typically starry list, full of A-list names in front of and behind the camera, some very obvious Oscar bait, and a few Toronto stalwarts to satisfy the requisite quota of local Canadian talent, including Atom Egoyan, who makes a bid for a comeback (after the career-pummeling one-two of “Devil’s Knot” and “The Captive”) with “Remember,” starring Christopher Plummer as a Holocaust survivor trying to track down the former Nazi guard responsible for murdering his family.
Egoyan’s film is listed by the »

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."

Steve Jobs, the upcoming film about the Apple maverick – which stars Michael Fassbender in the titular role and was directed by Danny Boyle – will screen as the centerpiece film for the 53rd New York film festival.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center, which hosts the event, doesn’t list it as a world premiere. Sources say it will bypass the Toronto and Venice film festivals that occur a month beforehand, so a Telluride film festival world premiere seems likely.

Tomorrow morning will see the first titles announced for the Toronto Film Festival, a day later Venice will begin to reveal their slate, but the New York Film Festival has already announced a pair of titles. Last week we learned Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead would close the fest that runs from Sept 25 - Oct 11 and today they've announced Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender will play the fest on October 3 as the Centerpiece selection. The interesting thing to note here is that nowhere in the press release announcing the selection does the word "premiere" show up, which leads me to believe Steve Jobs will likely show up either in Toronto, Telluride or Venice before New York with my leanings suggesting either Telluride or Toronto. The fact the announcement arrives today is no coincidence, but we'll have to wait a few more hours to find out. With a screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin, »

Cinephiles are on standby because on Tuesday and Wednesday, Tiff and Venice will unveil their initial wave of titles, getting the fall festival season in high gear. However, the New York Film Festival is getting slightly ahead of them today with this interesting bit of news. Organizers have announced that Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs," penned by Aaron Sorking, and starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and more, will screen at Nyff as part their Centerpiece film. However, one thing to note is that word "premiere" is nowhere to be found in their press release. Perhaps this means that Venice and Tiff will get the movie first? We'd put some pretty good money on it, and don't count it out of appearing in Telluride's always surprising lineup. "Steve Jobs" opens on October 9th. ---------- New York, NY (July 27, 2015) – The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the selection of Steve Jobs, »
