The Toronto Film Festival will again play host to scores of Oscar hopefuls

19 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With today’s announcement that David Dobkin’s film The Judge will open the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, I figured that it was a good time to talk about the Tiff lineup. That Robert Downey Jr. vehicle will seek to become an awards player, and it’s not alone. Each year, scores of titles descend on Toronto in order to distinguish themselves to Academy members and various precursor voters everywhere. The festival has a solid history of producing Oscar nominees, though the big time competition this year from the New York Film Festival will certainly shine a light on just how essential a stop this fest still is. For now though, it’s a big one, and well worth a bit of discussion. As mentioned above, the opening film is The Judge, which could be a Best Actor player for Downey Jr. or perhaps even a Best Picture contender if it’s better than expected. »

A second stab at Golden Globe predictions

24 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I was originally planning on waiting to take another look at the Golden Globe awards and my predictions for that precursor until the summer was over, but with the festival announcements in full swing, it seems like a nice time to approach these again. Next week brings new Oscar predictions on my part (also informed by the New York and Toronto Film Festival announcements), so this is a good way to bide our time until then. There’s certainly a bit of a separation between the two, so it’s a far cry from the same sort of predictions, as you’ve probably already gathered by now. The Globes and the Oscars are very different animals, to say the least. You can argue about the actual impact that the former has on the latter, but at the very bare minimum, it influences perception, so it must be reckoned with to some degree. »

A Little Chaos unfolds at 2014 Tiff Galas and Special Presentations

23 July 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).  “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”

The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons.  Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

Tiff 2014: 23 Titles That Already Have Us Excited for Canada’s Big Show

22 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We may be within spitting distance of this year’s Comic-Con, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t spend some time getting excited about the next next big event: this September’s Toronto International Film Festival. The festival has now unleashed the first bit of its slate, and it’s already the kind of talent-packed, big name-crammed, jaw-dropping kind of thing we’ve long come to expect from the festival. Honestly? I’m sort of already packing my bags right now, because I don’t want anything slowing down my ability to see a whole mess of these films (even excessively and embarrassingly early preparations). This announcement includes thirteen Galas and forty-six Special Presentations — just a smidge of the festival’s full slate, really, but the one that’s the most glitzy and recognizable — which includes thirty-seven world premieres and plenty of films we’ve been waiting a long time to see.
