2 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Before directing his big American Express Unstaged show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Bennett Miller went down to Tennessee with Tim McGraw to better understand the stories the country music icon tells on stage. See video: ‘Foxcatcher’ Triumphs at Yet Another Film Festival The pair rode in an old Jeep that had significant meaning for McGraw, as he explains in this exclusive, Miller-directed feature. “When Faith and I were dating, it was my first headlining tour and she was my opening act, and I wanted to take her out for a cheeseburger and I didn't have a car, so I asked around and I. »

8 important awards season revelations after Venice, Telluride and Toronto

15 September 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The race for Oscar is akin to a political campaign, and the first three Fall film festivals have made a significant impact on all the major races. Consider that Venice, Telluride and Toronto take place within three weeks of each other and you have a huge indicator of how the season will progress. With that in mind, here are eight major takeaways that are still buzzing in our heads as the Oscar race begins. "The Imitation Game" just got a huge head start. Harvey's had a tough year at the box office. He isn't going to have a tough year with Oscar. "The Imitation Game" was the hit of Telluride and took the People's Choice Award at Toronto (something The Weinstein Company movies seem to have an awful amount of luck with). It's not quite the slam dunk that "The King's Speech" or "The Artist" were because it "appears »

Re-ranking the contenders in Best Picture

15 September 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With the festival season well underway and a good portion of the contenders for Best Picture having screened or about to screen, now seems like as good a time as any to take a look at the category and see what’s what in an expanded fashion. I did this with the major categories a few months back, but that was when almost everything was still speculation. We have some facts to go on now, so while much of this is still just an educated guess, I’m not completely relying on hunches this time around. It’s more of an even mix, depending on the film in question, of course. Here now are ten movies that are sitting the prettiest in my mind right now for Best Picture: 1. Gone Girl – The highest profile unseen player gets my number one spot at this point and time. If it hits during »

15 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Did you miss the Toronto Film Festival? Or maybe you wouldn't touch a film festival with a ten-foot pole. In any case, we've got you covered -- we saw a lot of movies at Tiff this year, and several of them will be Oscar contenders.

If you want a leg up on your friends, we've got the 10 things you need to know that came out of this year's Tiff. Blow your friends' minds with your vast knowledge, even if you didn't pay one iota of attention during the actual festival.

--

"The Guest" is awesome. And Dan Stevens (formerly of "Downton Abbey" fame) is so great as a horror-movie lead/raging psychopath it will blow your mind.

Eddie Redmayne -- yes, Eddie Redmayne from "Les Miserables" -- will get an Oscar nomination for playing physician Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything."

Similarly, Benedict Cumberbatch will get an Oscar nomination »

Oscars predictions update: J.K. Simmons & Edward Norton up, Mark Ruffalo down

14 September 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

At first, this year's Best Supporting Actor Oscar looked like a race between J.K. Simmons as a monstrous music teacher in "Whiplash" and Mark Ruffalo as a tragic Olympian in "Foxcatcher," but now Edward Norton just surged up our charts for portraying a rowdy stage actor in "Birdman." At this point all three films have been seen by most of our Experts, who increasingly favor Simmons. See their latest rankings. -Break- Michael Keaton soars ahead of Steve Carell in Oscar Best Actor race In late August, Norton was in sixth place in our experts' predictions with 16/1 odds as a movie star who clashes with Michael Keaton in a stage adaptation of "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love." But Norton has leapt forward since then. Only two experts are currently predicting Norton to win, compared to five for Ruffalo, but our other experts are ranking Norton so high »

Nyff ’14: Kyle’s 5 Most Anticipated Films

14 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though I did get to attend the TCM Classic Film Festival earlier this year (which was an amazing experience, and well worth your time), the New York Film Festival, in its 52nd year this time around, will be the first time I will have attended a festival as press. So, I’m very giddy about it. I’m excited to hobnob with other writers, get up at unfathomable times to catch screenings of films in languages I don’t often hear, and write like the wind. So, without further ado, here are my top five anticipated films of Nyff.

-        Goodbye to Language 3D | Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Though I’ve never felt much warmth towards the iconoclastic Godard (save for Vivre sa Vie), I found myself realizing, as word came from Cannes, that I was incredibly eager to test out his newest film Goodbye to Language. Intellectually stimulating, supposedly playful, »

Here are Us Weekly's picks:  Foxcatcher In a word, gut-wrenching.

Fall Festival Verdict: Who’s In, Who’s Out As The 2014 Oscar Race Gets Its First Real Shot Of Adrenaline

12 September 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

With the last gasp of the Toronto International Film Festival now upon us (it officially closes Sunday,) the Oscar race has become further defined, particularly with input from Venice and Telluride. Until that fall fest trifecta, only IFC’s summer phenomenon Boyhood and perhaps Sony Pictures Classics’ Foxcatcher  could realistically be thought to be in serious contention for Best Picture consideration. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel has been mentioned in some quarters, but that movie came out in March, and when was the last time a March release made the list of Best Picture nominees?

Toronto: The Top 10 Films to Generate Buzz

12 September 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald 

Managing Editor 

The Toronto International Film Festival ends Sunday and hundreds of films have been screened since the 11-day festival began. Throughout the years, Toronto has featured a number of Oscar hopefuls that have gone on to Oscar success. Just last year, best picture 12 Years a Slave (2013) was shown at Toronto (along with a number of other nominees). Hoping for the same success, some Tiff films have been met with instant Oscar chatter this year. Here are the top 10 films to generate buzz coming out of Tiff:

Felicity Jones: Oscar newbies hoping for a first citation this year

12 September 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Much like I took a look yesterday at veterans in contention for Oscar love the year, today I’m going to be turning my attention to the newbies who hope to receive some awards love. As I mentioned in the last piece, this is leading up to me doing a re-ranking of the contenders in all of the major categories beginning next week, but right now it’s just going to be a preview of which rookies to the Oscar season are gearing up to hopefully make their big debuts on the awards circuit. Some are even in a position to win Academy Awards. First up is Best Actor. In this race, the highest profile would be first time nominee would be either Steve Carell for Foxcatcher or Michael Keaton for Birdman. They’ve been frontrunners to many for basically this entire season. A tiny level down are more recent »

Toronto: Smaller Deals Show Tough Market for Indie Film Business

12 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a few hours over the weekend, the Toronto Film Festival looked like its old self — a wild game of “Let’s Make a Deal.” After Chris Rock’s “Top Five” premiered on Saturday night to ecstatic reviews, at least three studios entered a horse race to scoop up the comedy. The bidding ballooned to $12.5 million for worldwide distribution, and Paramount Pictures landed the prize. But after the dust settled, Toronto went back to business as usual: small deals where the studios kicked tires and looked more like picky homebuyers in a slow economic market.

In the process, the festival illustrated just how difficult the indie business has become in a blockbuster-obsessed Hollywood. Being gunshy may turn out to make more financial sense. Last year’s cluster of big deals, a group that included “Begin Again” with Keira Knightley and “What If” with Daniel Radcliffe, never fully ignited at the »

Who got Best Actor Oscars boost from Tiff: Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, ...?

Chris Rock's 'Top Five' Inspires Bidding War After Tiff Debut

11 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Chris Rock sparked a bidding war in Toronto with his third directorial effort, Top Five, which he also wrote and stars in.

Top Five premiered at Tiff on Sept. 6, and was immediately courted by studio distributors, including CBS Films, Relativity Media, Lionsgate and Fox Searchlight. Paramount finally closed the deal, winning the rights to distribute Top Five for a reported $12.5 million. The deal also reportedly includes a $20 million marketing budget, making it one of the biggest financial winners at the festival.

Top Five is a pseudo-reality comedy, about a comedian (Rock) who is trying to be taken seriously as an actor while his fiancée, a reality star, convinces him to air their wedding on her show. And, in addition to sparking a bidding war, the film, which also stars Rosario Dawson and Kevin Hart, was well received by audiences and critics alike.

So, How's Channing? What People Are Saying About the Foxcatcher Performances

11 September 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Foxcatcher is already getting Oscar buzz since its debut at the Cannes film festival and, recently, at Toronto's, where we saw the film as well. The movie is directed by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, but unlike that film, which was also based on a true story and set in the world of a certain sport, Foxcatcher is not lighthearted in any way (blame the terrifying true tale). What stands out in the wrestling drama are its performances from the three leads: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo. Here's what you need to know about their performances, what people are saying, and what their early Oscar chances are. »

Toronto’s 7 Biggest Career Reinventions

11 September 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Toronto has always been a place for reinvention — in 2008, Anne Hathaway came to the festival marred by her ex-boyfriend’s federal arrest, and left as an Oscar darling for “Rachel Getting Married.” And in 2013, Sandra Bullock launched as an astronaut in “Gravity,” and Jared Leto returned to acting with “Dallas Buyers Club.” But this year, especially, a handful of actors departed Canada with a new career jolt. Here are the biggest Toronto transformations.

1. Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”)

Redmayne delivered impressive supporting work in film like 2012’s “Les Miserables” and 2011’s “My Week With Marilyn.” But his magnificent performance as Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” should land him on Hollywood’s leading man list, and get him his first Oscar nomination. In a physical transformation on par with Matthew McConaughey in “Dallas Buyers Club,” Redmayne embodies Hawking to the point of convincing viewers they are watching a documentary. »

Channing Tatum Vows Magic Mike Xxl Will "Make Cinema History"

11 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Channing Tatum is making big promises. At the Toronto International Festival this week, the actor vowed that Magic Mike Xxl, the follow-up to his 2012 male stripper movie Magic Mike, will "make cinema history." He spoke about the movie, which he's writing, producing, and starring in, on the red carpet at a celebration dinner thrown by Sony Pictures Classics, the studio distributing his Nov. 14 film Foxcatcher. About Magic Mike Xxl, Channing said, "It's a road-trip movie. It's really different from the first film. I can tell you we loved the idea of Saturday Night Fever for the first one. This [second film] - and we're not ripping it or anything - has a The Last Detail kind of feel. All the guys are going to go crazy one last time and leave it all out up there. I can promise you there are some things in the movie that will make cinema history. »

Viggo Mortensen Comes to Toronto Speaking Four Languages – But Not English

Several actors appeared in more than one movie at this year's Toronto International Film Festival: Keira Knightley in “The Imitation Game” and “Laggies,” Mark Ruffalo in “Foxcatcher” and “Infinitely Polar Bear,” Simon Pegg in “Kill Me Three Times” and “Horace and the Search for Happiness,” Patricia Clarkson in “October Gale” and “Learning to Drive” and Kristen Stewart in “Still Alice” and “Sils Maria,” among others. But Viggo Mortensen holds the unusual distinction of having two Tiff movies in which he speaks four different languages … none of which are English, the language that moviegoers are accustomed to hearing Mortensen speak.
