Freeform has released the schedule for its annual “13 Nights of Halloween” which includes so much Hocus Pocus. Like, so much. In fact, the Halloween holiday itself will feature an all-day marathon of the family friendly flick that stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as three witchy sisters. (Keep an eye out for Doug Jones, star of Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film The Shape of Water, who'll have you in stitches in this movie.)

Getting into the weeds of full-blown “Oscar predictions” four months before the nominations are announced increasingly feels like a waste of time. The Academy demographic is changing rapidly and finding the pulse with any real authority is, more and more, a fool’s errand. But with the early festivals behind us and a handful more on the horizon, most of this year’s crop has already been seen. The best picture race has taken shape and it promises to be an exciting one, with no frontrunner in sight. Here are, at least in one observer’s estimation, the 10 strongest contenders for recognition in this year’s contest.
Pros: It’s an important film and a landmark in queer cinema. As the Academy’s collective taste leans more international (and cinephile), movies like this will only benefit.
Cons: Thrifty Sony Classics always has an Oscar presence, but »

With Venice, Tiff, and Telluride passed, the Oscar races become clearer. Not crystal clear mind you but apart from films no one has seen (like Spielberg's The Post or Scott's All the Money in the World) we know which dozen or so actresses might want to start thinking about red carpet lewks if the tide turns in their favor.

And I know we've asked this before but is Octavia Spencer the Thelma Ritter of her generation? She sure is reliable at warming up a film and giving it some salt of the earth wisdom and comedy, too. Guillermo del Toro's romantic fantasy The Shape of Water could be looking »

During its famous eponymous film fest, Toronto is the kind of place where one night you can watch Frances McDormand embrace Octavia Spencer and Guillermo Del Toro at a lavish fete, and then in the coming days, hunker down in theaters to be astounded by what the trio has put out. The experience of attending Canada’s Toronto International Film Festival, or Tiff, as it’s affectionately known, is a whirlwind of movie consumption—punctuated by party-going, and sustained by popcorn. With only limited time, an attendee isn’t able to catch everything. But with this many prestige films premiering at the dawn of Oscars season, what one does get to see is a glimpse at some of the finest big-screen acting of the year. Which of the performances below will end up on the Academy’s shortlist? From well-known veterans to newcomer breakouts, here are our favorite highlights from the 42nd annual Tiff. »

The leaves are turning. The Emmys are behind us. The crowds in Venice, Telluride, Colo., and Toronto have dispersed. Oscar season is officially here.
As the industry spins out of the late-summer film festival circuit, which annually grinds the gears of the season to life, this year’s race is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ever observed in the early stages. There are plenty of strong contenders, but no out-and-out frontrunner. There isn’t even an agreed-upon trio of frontrunners, as there was last year when “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land” and “Moonlight” burst out of this corridor.
Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” was the first slam-dunk on the scene in July. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” was the first major festival splash after that, premiering on Aug. 31 within hours of another instant player, Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour,” though they debuted thousands of miles apart; “Shape” landed in »

The Shape of Water is already earning accolades and is said to be Guillermo del Toro‘s best film yet. With all of these good things associated with the film it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most anticipated films of 2017. Just days after the release of the film’s Red Band trailer Fox Searchlight has released an all-new clip from the film. In the clip below you will witness the first meeting between the two main characters the Asset (Doug Jones) and Eliza Esposito (Sally Hawkins).
From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape Of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer »

It is very early in the fall movie season, but that means we are starting to see some potential Oscar contenders emerge. A few movies have been getting a ton of awards season buzz on the festival circuit already, with Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water being one of the most discussed and critically-praised movies making the rounds thus far. And it just so happens that the movie features a crazy sex scene.
Warning: spoilers ahead for The Shape of Water. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Doug Jones, who plays the fish monster in question, spoke about The Shape of Water and the bizarre sex scene. Jones has worked with Guillermo Del Toro frequently in the past, portraying Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies, in addition to having parts in Pan's Labyrinth and Crimson Peak. Despite their excellent established relationship, Del Toro was hesitant when it came »

We spent the last eleven days watching movies at the Toronto International Film Festival so that we could let you know which films you have to look out for when they hit a Cineplex theatre.
This year, Tiff played about 255 films, and watching all of them is an impossible feat. However, we saw enough that we can whole heartedly recommend 10 amazing ones, all of which you'll be able to catch at Cineplex sometime in the near future.

Be aware there are spoilers for The Strain, through the series finale episode 'The Last Stand'. R.I.P. The Strain. The wild, four-year ride through the Nazi-tinged vampire apocalypse came to a close with the finale, 'The Last Stand', an episode that showed off some of the best and worst qualities of the uneven series. It's hard to imagine that anyone would argue against the statement that The Strain's fourth and final season has been its best. Based on the series of novels by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, and shepherded to screen by … »

Of the 86 feature films (34%) by women directors that screened in Toronto, I saw three in particular which have kept me thinking about how the feminine, or even how woman herself is defined. Speaking generally of “those men” in the power positions throughout the world, I am becoming increasingly convinced that “those men” set an example in their over zealous coveting wealth and resources, and included in their materialistic extremes, is a push to redefine women “as they were” in the days, not so long ago, when they did not have much to say about their status.
The women depicted in the movies in Toronto take daring leaps to change the circumstances of their lives. Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Audience Winner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, the first runner up for the Audience Award about the Olympic ice skater I, Tonya, Battle of the Sexes about Billie Jean King »

It hasn’t been easy for Fox Searchlight Pictures over the last several years. The studio’s reputation has struggled in the wake of box office disappointments like “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Demolition,” “Table 19,” and this year’s “Patti Cake$,” plus increased competition from growing rivals like Netflix, Amazon, and A24. What was once a studio destined to be an Oscar power player has now become just another indie distributor fighting to get its movies seen. We’re a long way from the back-to-back Best Picture success of “12 Years a Slave” and “Birdman,” plus Oscar favorites like “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and “The Descendants.”

Tiff has come and gone. Masses of Canadians attend the festival which is what gives it such a special atmosphere. In Cannes, only the industry attends the festival; the public sets up chairs and ladders to watch the red carpet galas and take pictures. But here the public is as much a part of the festival as the industry.Tiff Bell Lightbox
The industry action which consists of buying and selling of film rights takes place at the Hyatt Hotel on King Street West. The screenings for both public and industry are down the street at the Tiff Bell Lightbox and around the corner at the Scotia Multiplex. The dense mingling of public and industry at these venues and on the street itself which is closed to traffic for the first weekend but is open to pedestrians, photo-op spots, food trucks creates a festive bevvy of activity to the city. »
