It was a massively star-studded second day in Toronto and Team Mr. Will had a bit better luck after a bit of a slow start to TIFF ‘ 16! Newly-minted Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio had King Street shut down as he walked the Red Carpet with grace for Global Warming Documentary BEFORE THE FLOOD, signing a whole lot of autographs for Fans who queued hours to see him in a rare visit to the City! Later on in the day, Joseph Gordon-Levitt faced the Media and Fans at the Premiere for his Award Season vehicle, SNOWDEN at Roy Thomson Hall. Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway brought a sizable crowd to Ryerson Theatre to see her latest effort, COLOSSAL at its World Premiere. While immersed in controversy of late, THE BIRTH OF NATION, starring, written and directed by Nate Parker got two Premieres tonight around town and its run at TIFF ’16 just might be the publicity it needs to get itself back on the right path.
Paramount Pictures Canada + Mr. Will want to take you to see star-studded THE BIG SHORT first! Screenings take place in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary on Wednesday, December 16, 2015.
When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.

ALl I have to say is that it’s about time Maria Bello got cast in Movies again! One of the Films entering TIFF ’13 with the most buzz is Thriller,Prisoners, which centers around an investigation in the disappearance of two girls. Hugh Jackman stars as a Boston Man who takes matters into his own hands when he thinks he’s found the Man behind the disappearance of his Daughter and her Best Friend.
Directed by our v. own Denis Villeneuve (Incendies), Prisoners also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano,Viola Davis and of course, Maria Bello. Phenomenal Cast.
Watch the Trailer below:
Warner Bros. releases Prisoners on September 20, 2013. It debuts at TIFF ’13 on Saturday, September 7. 2013.
After making a big splash at the Box Office, Action-Thriller Olympus Has Fallen soon will see its Home Video release and in case you didn’t see it the first time, Gerard Butler absolutely will knock you out in this amazing Thrill Ride! Read my Review here.
When the President (Aaron Eckhart) is kidnapped by a terrorist who seizes control of the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus“), disgraced former Presidential Guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As the National Security Team rushes to respond, they must rely on Banning‘s insider knowledge to save the President and prevent an even greater catastrophe. Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Rick Yune and Angela Bassett also star.
