Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Universal Pictures Canada releases GLASSFriday, January 18, 2019.
After earning over $700 million worldwide, 2017’s IT became one of the highest-grossing Horror movies of all time. Production on IT: CHAPTER 2 began a week ago in and around Toronto just like its Predecessor, including overnight shoots at Mandarin Restaurant in Mississauga, before moving back to its base at Pinewood Studios.
While the Film is expected to remain faithful to Stephen King‘s source material and the original 1990 TV Movie, surely returning Director AndyMuschietti will have a few a scares up his sleeve for us! It: Chapter 2 films through October and we can expect to see the clouded clown return to torment the Loser’s Club, now grown-up 27 years later, bringing them back to the cursed town of Derry.
The original cast of kids, most who have been in Toronto briefly these past couple weeks, will reprise their roles in this upcoming installment and in this Film will be seeing their adult versions:
Beverly … Jessica Chastain Bill … James McAvoy Stanley … Andy Bean Richie … Bill Hader Ben … Jay Ryan Eddie …James Ransone Mike … Isaiah Mustafa
Bill Skarsgård who was terrifying as Pennywise the Clown, also returns.
It – pardon the pun – was an amazing weekend and we caught wind they were in Yorkville for a night of relaxation after an overnight shoot the night prior. They were recreating this iconic scene in which Pennywise gives the Losers’ Club an ominous message after reuniting at a Chinese restaurant:
Chastain, McAvoy, Hader, Mustafa, Ransone, Ryan, Muschietti and his sister Bárbara, a Producer on the Film, plus friends thankfully had a far less mortifying meal at upscale Japanese it-spot Kasa Moto followed by libations at Amber and late-night Karaoke. Will Arnett, Vinay Virmani and more also were spotted out in the vicinity, giving Yorkville back a bit of its past starpowered lustre.
See our Snaps! I am luckiest guy in the world!!
Chastain, McAvoy, Muschietti, Ryan
Chastain, Bárbara Muschietti (Producer), Ransone
While we’ve met Chastain a dozen-plus times in our travels and Film Festival romps, this was the most memorable meeting yet! She is the kindest, most giving actor in Hollywood today and hasn’t changed since her meteoric rise. Basically, we don’t deserve her! We’re just happy to see her thriving, having fun and that her peers love and respect her as much as we do!
We admit we still are horrified after seeing IT last fall. Every rustle of the leaves to every time Pennywise surfaced and flashed his teeth shook us to the core. Oddly, it was equally emotional too as I’m sure many were affected by the fact that the Losers’ Club were outcasts just like us, with very real problems of their own whether it be Beverly and her abusive father or Bill grieving the painful loss of his little brother.
We are beyond thrilled about seeing the 2019 follow-up, slated for a post-Labour Day release just like the first chapter.
Submergence is the newest Film from Wim Wenders and follows two lovers (Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy) whose careers force them oceans apart.
The performances from Vikander and McAvoy anchor this Film both individually and together. Their magnetic chemistry is essential to believing these characters are willing to spend months apart just for a moment together again. The sets are stunning and Wenders shoots the ocean romantically finding beauty in the vast water. Unfortunately, Submergence in its script, fails to captivate beginning to end.
Submergence screens at TIFF on Sept. 10 at Elgin at 6:15 PM and Sept. 11 at TBLB1 at 3 PM.
TIFF ’17 will be remembered as one of the most electrifyingly star-studded Festivals in many years and today is exactly why!
Names don’t come any bigger than Angelina Jolie who walked her first of two Red Carpets this afternoon. She produces Animated Feature THE BREADWINNER and humbly came out to grace not only the Red Carpet but walk the line of Fans stopping for photos and autographs along Yonge Street in front of Winter Garden Theatre. We were among the lucky! What a thrill! Don’t miss her at her Premiere for well-reviewed Documentary FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER tomorrow!
Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence also drew a large crowd at TIFF BELL LIGHTBOX for the Presser for Darren Aronofsky‘s well-reviewed mother! While there was no sign of Michelle Pfeiffer today, Javier Bardem and Ed Harris later would walk the Red Carpet after being absent at the Film’s Presser. We even got a photo with Lawrence although tragically, flashes going off would wash out the Photo! Devastation!
THE SHAPE OF WATER continues to garner tons of Oscar buzz with Festival Creative Director Cameron Bailey touting it as his fave! We spotted its friendly cast today including two-time Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins, winner Octavia Spencer, nominee Richard Jenkins and Doug Jones. Hawkins is getting a lot of early buzz for her work.in this Toronto-made Fantasy by Guillermo del Toro. No signs of Michael Shannon however!
We loved seeing Julianne Moore out earlier as she promoted George Clooney‘s SUBURBICON. We didn’t see Clooney though who was snuck-in, although we hear he has been really fantastic and giving to fans at TIFF ’17!
Dave Franco stars alongside brother James Franco in hilarious THE DISASTER ARTIST, based on THE ROOM star Greg Sestero‘s Memoir about working on that Cult Classic! He was in a bit of a rush today but we hope to see him around tomorrow as the Film premieres then at Midnight Madness.
James McAvoy consistently delivers and we were thrilled that he was able to make it in this year as we’ve wanted to meet him since we saw The Last King of Scotland, which also premiered here back in 2006. He’s here for SUBMERGENCE and was gracious sporting a bald look for his X-Men: Dark Phoenix role which he is shooting now in Montreal.

As three teenage girls wait for their father to finish putting bags into the trunk of their car, a strange man gets into the driver’s seat. His name is Kevin (James McAvoy) — a seriously mentally ill man with 23 personalities. He kidnaps the girls and shuts them away in a locked bunker. They quickly learn he has more than one identity when he shows up dressed as a woman, telling them, “Don’t worry. He knows what you’re here for. He knows he’s not allowed to touch you.”
Another of his personalities, Hedwig, says he’s nine years old. One of the sisters, Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), realizes the only way they can get out is to convince one of Kevin‘s alter egos to let them go. She thinks maybe Hedwig will help, but he tells them, “He’s done awful things to people and he’ll do awful things to you.” They find out one of Kevin‘s personalities is a vicious psychopath called The Beast.
Meanwhile, Kevin‘s psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), who doesn’t know what he’s done, believes there is a submerged personality she hasn’t yet met who will materialize and dominate all the others.
