When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.

Universal Pictures Canada x Mr. Will want to give Readers in Toronto a chance to see TIFF ’17 selection VICTORIA & ABDUL! The Screening takes place Monday, September 25, 2017 in Toronto.
Synopsis: Academy Award winner Judi Dench (“Shakespeare in Love”) reunites with Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Frears (“The Queen”), and returns to the role of Queen Victoria, in “Victoria & Abdul.” The screenplay of “Victoria & Abdul” is by Academy Award nominee Lee Hall (“Billy Elliot”), based on journalist Shrabani Basu’s book Victoria & Abdul: The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant., which brought to light the long-hidden history of Victoria and Abdul from their own diaries and journals. The extraordinary true story of the amazing and unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and a young clerk, Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), who becomes her teacher, her spiritual advisor, and her devoted friend. In 1887, Abdul travels from India to present a ceremonial medal as part of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee but surprisingly finds favor with the elderly Queen. The unprecedented and unlikely relationship causes a battle royale within the royal household, pitting the Queen against court and family. “Victoria & Abdul” humorously explores questions of race, religion, power, and the farce of Empire through the prism of a highly unusual and deeply moving friendship.
Cast: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard, Adeel Akhtar, Tim Pigott-Smith, Olivia Williams, Fenella Woolgar, Paul Higgins, Robin Soans, Julian Wadham, Simon Callow and Michael Gambon.
Day 2 of TIFF ’14 certainly was not short on the Starpower, however it would be the torrential downpour of rain and a Thundershower early evening which would curtail what I anticipated would be a long night. That being said, I am going to rest-up and be up and at ’em early with a proper night of rest!
The Day began with the Press Conference for David Dobkin‘s THE JUDGE, starring Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Dax Shepard and more! Downey drew a vast majority of the Crowd today and certainly tried rewarding them all with some Autographs, zipping along in circular fashion before heading into his Photo Call.
See the Snaps below!
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Duvall, who also was celebrated at an In-Conversation-With at TIFF Bell Lightbox
Dax Shepard – he had to school me on how to use my Samsung S5!
With few expectations in mind, we crossed paths today with many Stars out and about! Check-out some of these familiar faces!
Rene Russo at TIFF ’14 for Nightcrawler in which she stars opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, looks absolutely stunning and is amazingly sweet in-person I’m pleased to say!
I’ve long been touting British Star Felicity Jones as one to look out for. The Actress appears in much-buzzed The Theory of Everything opposite Eddie Redmayne, and despite checking-in quickly at her Hotel, she still came out to say “hello” to everyone after. She also was here a couple years back with Like Crazy and Hysteria. We kinda match, no?
Although we’re unsure which Film she’s at TIFF ’14 for, Orange is the New Black Star Alysia Reiner surprised us all today and in all honesty she looked a little surprised how excited Fans were to see her!
Not a Woman of many words, Director Lone Scherfig was shocked to be recognized today. I loved her 2010 Film An Education starring Carey Mulligan, which also premiered at TIFF, and am eagerly awaiting her latest, The Riot Club, which debuts this weekend at TIFF ’14!
Funnyman Eddie Izzard certainly is no stranger to Toronto, having brought his Shows here on multiple occasions and also filming Hannibal in the City. He is at TIFF ’14 with Dustin Hoffman-starring Boychoir.
I admit it! I’m still a bit of a Gleek at heart! Was absolutely surprised to see Kevin McHale, who plays Artie on the Series, out and about today. He also stars in Boychoir alongside Izzard.
I adore Rafe Spall, the talented British Actor known best for his work in Films like The F Word and The Life of Pi. I lucked-out totally seeing him at Ryerson Theatre tonight for the Premiere of X+Y which saw its Red Carpet go on despite heavy rains.
Young Hollywood is filled with promising Stars, but Asa Butterfield certainly would be at the top of his class. Starring in critical and Box Office successes Ender’s Game and also Martin Scorcese‘s Hugo, the 17-year-old Brit is at TIFF ’14 with X+Y which seems him starring as a socially-awkward young Math Prodegy.
Tomorrow the excitement reaches a peak as we expect to see the likes of Jennifer Garner, Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Ansel Elgort and several, several more! Stay tuned.
