eOne Films release ROBIN HOOD on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.
And in a blink of an eye, another TIFF has passed and this one had us working right to the finish line! It’s only after the fact that we have a moment to take it all in how much we went through. We estimate double our average in Celebrity Snaps this year. That’s how star-studded TIFF ’18 was. It was that kind of a year!
We had the pleasure of previewing several of this year’s Awards Season contenders and we are waiting with baited breath to see A STAR IS BORN and GREEN BOOK, both outstanding, duke it out for Oscars glory in coming months. We loved both, are thrilled the latter was honoured with the People’s Choice Award at the Festival, but something about the former makes our heart sing. We cannot stop thinking about it or its Soundtrack. It takes a magical Film to do that.
Let’s relive some of my favourite star-studded moments of the Festival, as lensed through the Nikon D3400. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without this amazing camera which worked amazingly-well with our Blackberry Key 2 in terms of file transmission to ensure we were able to get our photos uploaded and edited within moments for you all to enjoy! The clarity of these snaps speak for themselves.
A STAR IS BORN Press Conference
We will never stop taking our signature Celebrity Selfies and TIFF ’18 was unforgettable even if we saw many returning faces. We wouldn’t have been camera-ready without the right gear and depending on each scenario, sometimes the Blackberry Key 2 worked best for those Selfies, sometimes the Nikon D3400 worked better. What matters is that more often than not, we got the snap! And many we did.
Here’s some of our faves!
Jamie Lee Curtis
John David Washington
Kelly Marie Tran
In case you missed our Television appearances during TIFF ’18 this is our first year hitting-up the three big media giants: Global, CITY and CP24 (Bell Media). Thrilled! Our brand continues to thrive as a Festival go-to and we are so happy for the recognition.
Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) was an acclaimed Journalist who lived for covering stories on the front lines of war-torn nations. She lost an eye in a grenade attack in Sri Lanka, and started wearing an eye patch while continuing to cover the worst of stories. But as the years and wars wear on, so too does the PTSD of everything she’s seen.
In his Narrative Feature debut, Documentarian Matthew Heineman has crafted a Film that is gritty, real and immediate. You can see, hear and especially feel every whizzing bullet and every heinous explosion. The Film has an aura of authenticity that is made all the more frightening by the lack of obvious CGI. Pike is very good as Colvin, and fan favourite Jamie Dornan puts in admirable work as Photojournalist Paul Conroy. But the Film has a choppy, episodic nature that acts more like a glossy greatest hits album than it does a cohesively-structured Film. It jumps around recklessly, and by the time the Film ends, it felt like everyone’s motivations were completely superficial.
A Private War screens Friday, September 14 at 6:30 PM at Roy Thomson Hall [World Premiere] and 8:00 PM at Elgin Theatre, and Sunday, September 16 at 8:45 PM at Scotiabank Theatre.
As TIFF ’18 reaches its halfway mark, we still are buzzing with starpower, but this is nearing the calming point of the Festival! One big dilemma – it wouldn’t stop raining today which affected our mobility, but we still tried our best! Marquee titles like A MILLION LITTLE PIECES, based on the Bestseller by James Frey, DESTROYER for which Nicole Kidman once again is getting Oscars buzz and of course FIRST MAN starring Ryan Gosling, all debuted this evening. See who we spotted out and about today!
We were so honoured once again to be on the jury for the BIRKS DIAMOND TRIBUTE honouring the accomplishments of Canadian Women in Film. Held at Ricardo’s, the event saw Writers, Producers, Actresses and Directors honoured for their body of work. Honourees this year include: Christa Dickenson, Nettie Wild, Susan Coyne, Stella Megie, Jeanne Leblanc, Pascale Bussières, Tantoo Cardinal, Eva Hartling and Jean-Christophe Bedos.

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.

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.

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.
