41 minutes ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced its selections for the 2014 Masters, Vanguard, Midnight Madness, and documentaries programs on Tuesday.

The festival, in its 39th year, kicks off Sept. 4 with David Dobkin’s The Judge, a drama starring Robert Downey, Jr. as a big-time lawyer who returns home to defend his father (Robert Duvall) in court. While The Judge is an American film, the movie selections unveiled hail from all over the world—Japan, New Zealand, and Spain are just a few of the countries represented—and involve a number of well-known actors and filmmakers.

2014 Tiff Screening Tally So Far...

48 minutes ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I fully expect Xavier Dolan's Mommy to be announced on August 6th so you can go ahead and add that one to my "Must Sees" list below, but as of right now my list of films I consider absolute "musts" sits at 17 movies with another eight I'll make top priority after I schedule those and then another nine that will be dependent on my screening schedule because conflicts due arise meaning any of these may be on or off the table... schedule depending. I'm going to be in Toronto from September 3-10, which means six full screening days, which means seeing 18 films will be pushing it, which also means I'm going to miss a lot of movies I would really like to see... Hell, it might even end up being worth it to skip films with already established release dates -- Foxcatcher, The Judge, Wild, The Drop, Mr. Turner, »

Kevin Smith Says Jennifer Garner is the Reason He's Not Friends with Ben Affleck Anymore

1 hour ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kevin Smith blames Jennifer Garner for the end of his friendship with Ben Affleck.

Though Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck have worked on five films together including classics like Chasing Amy and Dogma, looks like the two are no longer close -- and according to Smith, the surprising reason is Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner.

When Yahoo Movies asked noted comic book fan Smith about a potential Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surprise at this year's Comic-Con and if Affleck was in town, Smith replied that he didn’t know because the two were not "f*cking tight" anymore.

"I don't know, because we're not f*cking tight. I have not been [close with him] in decades. That's old Ben," he said. "He's got a wife [Jennifer Garner] that don't care for me at all. And plus, honestly, he probably don't care for me at all anymore. He's a triple-a-list »

2014 Tiff: Midnight Madness Sticks Mostly To Fest Faves in David Robert Mitchell & Adam Wingard

2 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It looks like Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes might have been more inspired by what he might have seen elsewhere, than what was currently available for a potential fall fest break-out. A section commonly known for almost wall to wall world preems in the mix-up of genres and languages, is giving some inventory space to Sundance preemed Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s What We Do in the Shadows and Adam Wingard’s The Guest (Nicholas called it, “sleek, fun entertainment, a reminder of a bygone era when an influx of entertaining genre films existed in greater quantity“) which joins the Cannes Critics’ Week entry David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows. Sion Sono will open the section with Tokyo Tribe, but acquisition interest will go towards world preem titles of Jaume Balagueró’s [Rec] 4: Apocalypse, Jalmari Heleander’s Big Game and Jonas Govaerts’ Cub, while the A24 folks get to »

New Picture from Kevin Smith's Walrus Horror 'Tusk', Plus Word on His 'True North Trilogy'

4 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Kevin Smith's Tusk was a film I long expected would have its premiere in the Midnight selection at this year's Toronto Film Festival, sounds perfect for the fest's weird and wacky sidebar and one I will be sure to check out. Following today's announcement a new picture of star Justin Long has been revealed and I've included a close up above and the full-size look at the bottom of this post. In Tusk, Long plays Wallace, a podcaster on a mission who thinks he has found the story of a lifetime in Howard Howe (Michael Parks), an adventurer with amazing stories and a curious penchant for walruses. When Mr. Howe's true desires unfold, things take a dark turn and Wallace faces a terrifying transformation at the hands of his captor. As his friends Alison and Teddy (Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment) search the backwoods of Canada to rescue him, »

Justin Long is in Deep Crap in First Trailer for Kevin Smith’s Tusk

4 hours ago | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Part “Human Centipede” and part “Misery,” check out the first trailer for Kevin Smith’s “Tusk.” I gotta admit, this coming from the same guy who gave us “Clerks” and Jay and Silent Bob is a bit weird. Then again, following up on “Red State,” it’s probably not too much of a stretch, and will likely be accepted more easily. I remember when no one knew what the hell to make of “Red State.” Since he’s already opened this new phase of his career, “Tusk” should go down easier for Smith’s fans. Not so much for Justin Long’s character (or that wicked ‘stache of his) in the movie, though. He plays a man who is “captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus. The poor bastard. Starring Justin Long, Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment (!), and Michael Parks. Avoid Canada this September 19th. »
