Okay, we admit we were underwhelmed by FIFTY SHADES DARKER but this new Teaser for FIFTY SHADES FREED offers some promise!
Synopsis: Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Ana (Dakota Johnson) return from their honeymoon. Christian has purchased the publishing business where Ana worked, and she is now the Commissioning Editor.
After missing four of her contraception injection appointments, Ana learns she is pregnant. After hearing the news, Christian is angry, because he thinks Ana will love the baby more than him, and demands that she get an abortion.
Meanwhile, Ana‘s old boss, Jack (Eric Johnson), is causing problems for Ana when he tries to kidnap her and failing, kidnaps someone close to her.

We don’t care who knows. We are so stoked for FIFTY SHADES DARKER! If you loved the first Film and the novels, you will love this new Trailer.
After leaving Christian (Jamie Dornan), Ana (Dakota Johnson) starts a new job as personal assistant to the editor, Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson), at a publishing company. However, she finds herself having to fend off advances from her new boss.
Christian purchases the publishing company where Ana is working and stops her from going on an overnight business trip with Jack, because Christian knows Jack‘s history of sexually harassing his assistants. Wanting Ana back in his life, Christian convinces her to give him another chance. After agreeing to her demands for a new arrangement, they begin to build trust and find stability.
However, when Ana meets Elena (Kim Basinger), the woman who seduced Christian when he was 15 years old, she’s unhappy that Christian continues to be friends with her. When Elena realizes that Christian has romantic feelings for Ana, she tries to throw a wrench in the young couple’s relationship.

I live for these tangled, juicy messes. After a debut at Venice last Fall, A BIGGER SPLASH is set to do as its name suggests with a stateside release in May.
Filmmaker Paul De Smedt (Matthias Schoenaerts) and Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton), a rock star who has just undergone throat surgery, are enjoying a relaxing vacation on a remote Italian island.
The tranquility comes to an end when a Marianne‘s old flame, music producer Harry Hawkes (Ralph Fiennes), and seductive younger woman Penelope (Dakota Johnson), who may or may not be Harry’s daughter, arrive on the island and barge into the middle of the couple’s vacation.

On their Press Tour for HOW TO BE SINGLE, Dakota Johnson and Leslie Mann make the most of it in this new interview which quickly is going viral. Poor Chris Van Vliet of WSVN in Miami doesn’t quite get around to the actual interview with Johnson and Mann, but the interaction is out-of-this-world amazing! Imagine being told to unbutton your shirt and teased the entire time as they giggle and tear-up! Awkward, but but Van Vliet was a good sport about it right??

New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle.

Warner Bros. Pictures Canada release HOW TO BE SINGLE on Friday, February 12, 2016.

Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart) takes on his most ambitious project to date as he tells the story of James “Whitey” Bulger one of the most infamous South Boston gangsters in history. Black Mass tells this intense story featuring performances from the incredible Johnny Depp who restores his faith in his acting career with arguably the best performance of his career in the film. Black Mass is an incredible feature that sheds a light on a story that needed the light.
James “Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp) is one of the most notorious gangsters of South Boston, while his brother Billy Bulger (Benedict Cumberbatch) was state senator, as the story depicts Whitey’s rise to the top of the criminal empire and how he managed to continually fall through the cracks of the justice system. Whitey always believed in not being a rat, because if you’re a rat you’re going to die and it will certainly not be pleasant. However, when rival gang families starting moving in on Whitey’s territory and old friend from Southie, FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) offered him a deal where he provides information and in return gets protection from the FBI Whitey could not say no. Black Mass tells the story of how James “Whitey” Bulger became one of the most feared men in South Boston.
Johnny Depp who has chosen some interesting roles in the last few years of his career, have made people start to forget how talented he truly is. Thankfully though his performance in the film is nothing short of terrifying and riveting as he brings life to the screen as the sadistic psychopath. He has restored his faith in his fans with this performance, which could potentially get him a fourth Oscar nomination. Benedict Cumberbatch who plays the brother to Whitey also does a phenomenal job at hiding what he knows and trying to protect his brother while he is completely aware of the terrible human being that he is. Moreover, Joel Edgerton who never has managed to disappoint audiences shines through yet again delivering another compelling performance that keeps the audience at the edge of their seats. Other mentions to performances have to be mentioned with respect to Kevin Bacon who plays the FBI lead who allows the alliance that Connolly and Bulger have together, as Bacon delivers a stellar performance as well.
However, Black Mass has not only incredible performances that will surely receive buzz and potential academy recognition, but the directing in this two hour heavyweight is flawless as Scott Cooper never lets anything become too dull or diluted as the gruesomeness is not toned down for a lighter audience. The reason why this had to be done, is to truly show how terrifying and how much of a menace James “Whitey” Bulger truly was and still is.
Black Mass is an fascinating piece about a terrifying force. It is one of the better gangster films of recent years, and adds another great addition into the careers of everyone involved.
Warner Bros. Pictures Canada release Black Mass in theatres on Friday, September 18, 2016.
Although we’re at the half-way mark at TIFF ’15, we’re nowhere near done! The Town is set to be electrified at Princess of Wales Theatre as the eagerly-awaited Premiere for BLACK MASS shuts down a portion of Entertainment District with Johnny Depp making his way to the Red Carpet.
See some of the stars we spotted today!
Kevin Bacon. The veteran actor was amazing today at the Press Conference for Black Mass, quite literally stopping for every single Fan in-waiting. There’s a reason why he’s adored and we saw it today.
Dakota Johnson already has been catapulted to stardom in a big way starring in the Film Adaptations of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but Black Mass is what will solidify her standing as a serious Actress. She was wonderful today stopping for Fans. A huge Fan of hers, I even slipped myself in for a Selfie amidst the commotion!
And of course, who doesn’t love Johnny Depp? After a late arrival, he delivered his promised and went around the lined circle of Friends, stopping for Autographs as security cautiously tossed any clipboards thrust towards his face. The cheers were deafening for the King of Cinema and the reviews are fantastic for his performance as gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.
Joan Allen is fantastic in Thriller, ROOM which premieres Tuesday night TIFF ’15. Here she is at a Press Conference earlier for the Film. Film star Brie Larson unfortunately has been v. private this entire trip not interacting at all with fans. What gives?
AP McCoy. The 20-time champion jockey in the UK, made a rare appearance here in Toronto for the first-ever screening of his BBC Documentary, Being AP. He revealed that he made the Documentary for his two-year-old son who will never know him as a jockey following his retirement earlier this year.

Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), 21, is studying at Washington State University. She takes a writing assignment for the school paper to interview Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), a 27-year-old successful and wealthy entrepreneur. Although she finds him intimidating, she’s instantly attracted to Christian.
He later shows up at the hardware store where she works part time and buys cable ties, masking tape and rope. They begin a relationship, but beforehand, he asks her to sign a non-disclosure agreement forbidding her to discuss anything that they do together. She learns he’s into BDSM and he then asks her to sign a second contract consenting to dominance and submission and tells her their relationship will not be romantic.
