Tiff 2014: Updated Screening Tally Brings Total to 46 Possible Movies

19 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems as if the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup is more or less set. I'm not expecting any major additions after today's announcement and have taken another look at my current list of most likely films I'll be screening while in town, though this is largely based on title and director alone as I have yet to really dig into the titles unfamiliar to me so it's possible a few may find their way into the mix once all is said and done. That said, if you think there are some I'm missing please let me know... don't want to overlook anything. Note, I will be in Toronto from September 3-10 and expect I'll see about 18 movies maximum while I'm there. Right now the full list below is 48 movies not including the four I've already seen (but have yet to review) and the one I don't think I'll even have a chance to see. »

New Posters for Whiplash, Before I Go To Sleep, and Laggies

15 August 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Posters for a trio of non-superhero, non-franchise movies have landed online, and we thought it prudent to share.  Briefly: Whiplash – Our own Matt Goldberg is quoted on the Whiplash poster for this dark drama, which stars Miles Teller as an aspiring jazz drummer who studies under a ruthless instructor (J.K. Simmons).  I’m actually quoted on the trailer myself, as the film was one of the breakout hits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.  The pic opens in theaters on October 10th.  Read Matt’s review here. Before I Go to Sleep – A poster and release date have been unveiled for this thriller starring Nicole Kidman as a woman with no memory.  Secrets are subsequently revealed about the true nature of her doctor (Mark Strong) and husband (Colin Firth).  The film opens in theaters on October 31st. Laggies – Only half-heads are glimpsed in the debut poster for Lynn Shelton »

'Laggies' Poster Featuring Chloe Moretz and Keira Knightley

13 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chloe Moretz, Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell play peek-a-boo on the latest poster for the coming-of-age comedic drama Laggies. Directed by Lynn Shelton, the movie follows a woman having a life crisis, who escapes her recent marriage proposal to hide out in the home of her new 16-year-old friend. Check out the trio of actors as they attempt to find some meaning in life without letting the important things go.

Having spent her twenties comfortably inert, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber). When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to escape - at least temporarily - she hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika (Chloe Moretz) and Annika's world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell »

12 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced more selections Tuesday for the upcoming 2014 edition of the annual awards season kick-off. The majority of the festival's program was announced last month, but this group includes intriguing world premieres from notable directors such as Todd McCarthy ("The Cobbler") and Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights"). A number of the titles revealed have screened at other festivals including the underrated "Infinitely Polar Bear" and "Laggies" from Sundance as well as Cannes players "Two Days, One Night," "The Search" and "Clouds of Sils Maria." And yes, the presence of "Sils Maria," which is a favorite of this particular writer, means Kristen Stewart will likely hit one of the festival's many red carpets. As you'd expect for Toronto, the world premieres feature some big names including Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," Jean Dujardin in "The Connection (La French)," Dustin Hoffman in "Boychoir, »

Just how much sway do Tiff programmers have? Looking at today’s Gala and Special Presentation add-ons, measurably, when it comes to films with star-wattage and acquisitions titles, the industry sides with high value world premiere slot in downtown Toronto.

In directorial debuts, Henry Hobson presents Maggie, actor Paul Bettany presents Shelter (see pic of star and his wife above), Andrea Di Stefano’s Escobar: Paradise Lost and Philip Martin’s The Forger.

'The One I Love' Multi-Tasker Mark Duplass Explains His New Indie Paradigm

6 August 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Writer-director-producer-actor Mark Duplass has an unusual career plan, to say the least. As far as he's concerned, he gets more pleasure and satisfaction out of collaborating as a writer-producer-actor on various micro-budget projects than he does getting funding from the studios for bigger-budgeted projects. With time, he has become more militant about this. Duplass can afford to be, thanks to his hit TV series "The League."  A workaholic to rival Steven Soderbergh, Duplass writes and directs movies with his brother Jay ("The Puffy Chair," "Baghead," "Cyrus"), writes and acts with director Lynn Shelton ("Humpday" and "Your Sister's Sister") and Colin Trevorrow ("Safety Not Guaranteed"), produces with his wife, actress Katie Aselton, and other up-and-coming directors ("Black Rock," "Creep") and sometimes functions as an actor-for-hire on such films as "Zero Dark Thirty," »
