It was announced today that the film will have its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival as a Special Presentation.
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

With it making its world premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, new images have come our way for Jay Roach’s (Meet The Parents, The Campaign) Trumbo, with Bryan Cranston taking the titular role of 1940’s screen writer Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted and sentenced to 11 months in prison after refusing to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee. These new images give us a closer look at Cranston as Trumbo, aswell as Diane Lane as his wife wife, Cleo, and Helen Mirren as gossip columnist Hettie Hopper. Not pictured, but I hope we get to see it soon, is Jag’s (everybody remembers the t.v. show Jag, right?) David James Elliot as John Wayne. That should be a sight to behold. Trumbo opens for limited time in the U.S. on November 16th, before coming to this side of the pond on January »

“We try to experience this through Po’s eyes, so we want to make it really special for him,” states production designer Raymond Zibach. “The fact that he comes back to other pandas and is going to learn their way of life was kind of magical to him because he thought none of this ever existed.”

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." Notable films that will have premiered »

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.

If you think you're a big fan of "Breaking Bad," you've got nothing on the people who work at Walter's Coffee Roastery in Istanbul. They've themed their coffee shop after the acclaimed AMC drama down to the last detail.
They roast their beans in a lab reminiscent of the one that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) worked in. They wear bright yellow suits just like the duo did. They even have "blue meth" cupcakes!

Last month, DreamWorks Animation released first look photos from their upcoming animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3, which showcased the Panda Village. Fans got their first look at this village in 2011's Kung Fu Panda 2, when the long-lost father of Po (Jack Black) realizes that his son is still alive, revealing the hidden village where several panda bears reside. Today, Entertainment Weekly has revealed new concept art images that give us a better look at the scope of Panda Village.
Our report from last month revealed that the filmmakers embarked on a 10-day trip to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Sichuan, China. This served as a reference point for their Panda Village, watching real-life pandas in this facility, set against the backdrop of Mount Qingcheng. Production designer Raymond Zibach says that trip inspired the village seen in Kung Fu Panda 2, but they kept expanding »
Jack Black returns as the voice of Po in the film along with Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman, David Cross, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeoh, Mads Mikkelsen, Danny McBride, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, James Hong, and Bryan Cranston. The new film opens in January.

So it is true: You can take the girl away from her stabby pointy things, but you can’t ever fully take stabby pointy things from the girl.
Because in this week’s True Detective, knife-happy Ani Bezzerides is separated from her weapon of choice, yet still manages to make good on her promise that if “a man of any size lays his hands on me, he’s gonna bleed out in under a minute.”
And it’s a good thing, too, because the party Ani attends makes that Eyes Wide Shut gathering look like a PTA meeting. Let’s »

With the UK getting its first glimpse of the Asylum's latest disaster-piece tonight (July 23), we bring you the 8 best and very worst moments from Sharknado 3 below:
There's a certain art to a Sharknado opening scene. Viewers want their man-eating sharks and lots of blood from the get-go, and each new movie has to find a new way to satisfy them.
This time around, a hokey presidential ceremony - complete with a genuinely depressing cameo from all-time great comedian Robert Klein for the second year running - for the one-man army known as Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) was quickly dispatched so the sharks could starting destroying the Us capital.
