Even though we’re still only on the first wave of film selections for the year, the Toronto International Film Festival has a good representation of the world’s best filmmakers, including Canada’s Denis Villeneuve and Jean-Marc Vallée. The latter Quebecois director opens the Festival with latest movie, Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
This year’s lineup is also already pretty stacked on the actor front, boasting new films with the aforementioned Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet, Idris Elba, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eddie Redmayne, Helen Mirren, Jason Bateman, Julianne Moore, Tom Hardy, Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Caine.
Clearly we could keep listing Hollywood’s best and brightest stars who have films at Tiff this year, but we won’t. Let’s get to those trailers already!
Below, we’ve compiled a selection of trailers for the films of 2015’s Toronto International Film Festival, »

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."

Between a romantic Italian immigrant (Emory Cohen) and a well-to-do Irish "catch" (Domhnall Gleeson), who would you choose? Oh, and this is 1950s Brooklyn, so take that into account. Saoirse Ronan stars as an Irish immigrant in the big-screen adaptation of Colm Tóibín's 2009 novel, Brooklyn, and she's faced with making this very difficult choice. Does she stay in America without her family but with a man who could potentially be the love of her life, or does she go back to the homeland and embrace a man who could provide her with comfort? Unless you've already read the book, you can find out when the film is released on Nov. 6. It has already debuted to great reviews at the Sundance Film Festival this year, due in part to Nick Hornby's adapted screenplay. »

John Crowley's Brooklyn is one of this year’s first clear Oscar contenders, as it received nothing but exceptional reviews after it played the Sundance Film Festival.
The screenplay by Nick Hornby (An Education) adapts Colm Tóibín’s book of the same name about an Irish immigrant named Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) who leaves Ireland for the shores of New York City. After her homesickness diminishes, she falls for a young Italian Brooklynite (Emory Cohen) and settles into her life in 1950s New York. However, when tragedy befalls her family, she’s drawn back to Ireland, only to become charmed by a Gleeson (Domhnall) – as one inevitably would in Ireland.

Perhaps no other title at this year’s Sundance Film Festival screamed Oscar quite as loudly as Brooklyn, John Crowley’s tale of a young immigrant torn between her home world and the new life she’s trying to carve out for herself in America.
Saoirse Ronan stars in the pic, adapted from the book by Colm Toibin by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity), as an Irish immigrant trying to balance a new love and an old life while combatting the struggles of survival in 1950s New York. Emory Cohen, Domnhall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Waters co-star.
Reviews out of Sundance were rapturous, with particular praise going toward the moving story, Ronan’s emotive lead performance and the evocative cinematography, so it would be no surprise to see Brooklyn pop up in the awards mix closer to the end of the year. From what we’ve heard, few films this »

Read More: Sundance Review: Nick Hornby-Scripted 'Brooklyn' is Beautiful But Unfulfilling An emotional trailer has been released for John Crowley's "Brooklyn," a period romance drama based on Colm Tóibín's 2009 novel of the same name. The film follows a young Irish immigrant (Saoirse Ronan) navigating a new life alone in Brooklyn amidst casual racism, culture shock and new experiences brought by a 1950's New York City that is vastly different from her life back home. A newfound romance with an Italian-American boy (Emory Cohen), however, soon rids her of her homesickness -- until something back in Ireland tears her between her budding love in Brooklyn and the comfort of her past life in Ireland. The tender story also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters. Watch the trailer above. "Brooklyn" will be in theaters this fall.

"I met somebody... An Italian fella. We're going to Coney Island on the weekend." This looks charming. Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for John Crowley's Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan, a vintage romance set in New York City in the 1950s. The cast includes Domhnall Gleeson, Michael Zegen and Emory Cohen, but this is really Ronan's show. As a young Irish immigrant, she struggles to find her place in America, but then falls into a relationship with an Italian boy. This trailer really builds into magnificence at the end, with a lovely score and some fantastic shots of the city. But it's the shots of Saoirse Ronan pining, and crying, and longing, that will really hit you deep in the heart. First premiered at Sundance in January. Here's the first official trailer for John Crowley's Brooklyn, direct from Fox Searchlight's YouTube: Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis »

I saw a lot of movies at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, but few stuck with me for as long or hit me as hard as director John Crowley’s (Boy A) drama Brooklyn. Scripted by Nick Hornby and based on the novel of the same name by Colm Toibin, the film is an immigrant story of a young Irish girl (Saoirse Ronan) in the 1950s who moves to New York City in search of opportunity, but finds herself stuck between two worlds, unsure to which she truly belongs. This is one of the most touching and poignant immigrant stories ever told, and it’s anchored by tremendous performances from Ronan and Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond the Pines), as well as a standout turn from Julie Walters. It ranges from hilarious to heartbreaking to heartwarming, and Crowley wonderfully balances the intimacy of the story without delving into saccharine territory. Quite simply, »
