TIFF ’17 continues to go amazingly-well for us, but even being at the half-way mark we’re still not done! Check out some of the amazing sightings we had today!
MARK FELT: THE MAN WHO BROUGHT DOWN THE WHITE HOUSE has all the pedigree of a winner. The Drama centers on “Deep Throat“, the man who as an anonymous source led to the Watergate Scandal investigation. Its stars Liam Neeson, Diane Lane and Tony Goldwyn and premieres tonight at Ryerson Theatre. We spotted Neeson and Lane out earlier and they were both amazingly- nice, taking a quick moment to stop. We’re in love with our Selfie with Neeson and Lane has starred in two of our faves, Secretariat and Unfaithful!
BREATHE is coming into TIFF ’17 with lots of buzz. The Tearjerker marks Andy Serkis‘ directorial debut and is based on its Producer Jonathan Cavendish‘s parents’ story. Robin Cavendish, his father, is known for breaking ground in helping the severely-disabled gain freedom with mobility chairs. Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, long with Serkis were out and about today doing Press and it was a pure joy seeing them interact with their fans!
HOSTILES also premieres tonight at Princess of Wales Theatre and stars Academy Award winner Christian Bale and Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike. The Duo were out and about earlier promoting the Film and while they were private largely most of the day we were lucky to spot them amidst their hectic schedule. The Drama is about a US Cavalry Officer who accompanies reluctantly, a Cheyenne War Chief and his family back to their tribal lands. Bale is sporting a new look for his role as Dick Cheney, hence if you couldn’t recognize him, someone’s done their job good!
We loved chatting with Ari Graynor, Dave Franco and Paul Scheer about their new Film THE DISASTER ARTIST, premiering at Midnight Madness. While James Franco was to be a part of the chat, alas he was behind schedule. We did find him on the Red Carpet though where he was really giving to Media and fans! And even Rachel McAdams and Cult Icon Tommy Wiseau whom James Franco portrays, came out! You will LOVE this Film. It is hilarious! Check back towards the Holidays as our chat goes live.

It was a decision that altered the course of African history.
The 87th annual Academy Awards Luncheon was held earlier today at the Beverly Hilton and in keeping with annual tradition, this year’s Nominees, along with Ceremony Host Neil Patrick Harris, grouped together for a Class Photo.

We recently engaged our Readers to Tweet and Instagram what to them meant happiness with the Hashtag #CAPTUREHAPPINESS and the responses were sweet and touching! We saw adorable Snaps of their Babies, Cats and Dogs among others and our hearts melted!
Our Contributor Jon Godfrey previewed the Title at TIFF and loved it. Read his Capsule Review here.
Let’s see if any of our Willionaire$ made this touching Reel from eOne Films.
Watch the Trailer below:
eOne Films release HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS today.
The first official Teaser Trailer for David Fincher‘s GONE GIRL at long last has surfaced and if this doesn’t say Awards Season, then I don’t know what does! Set to Elvis Costello‘s She (covered by Richard Butler of The Psychadelic Furs), this intriguing Trailer leaves much to the imagination, capturing perfectly the chaos surrounding the speculation that Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) has murdered his Wife of five years (Rosamund Pike).
Based on Gillian Flynn‘s Best-selling Thriller, GONE GIRL stars both Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris and Rosamund Pike.
Watch the Trailer:
20th Century Fox release GONE GIRL on Friday, October 3, 2014. TIFF Punters would say this is angled perfectly for a TIFF ’14 Premiere. What do you say?
Based on Gillian Flynn‘s Best-Seller, David Fincher‘s GONE GIRL is set to rivet Audiences this Fall and we’re hoping with fingers crossed it gets a Toronto Premiere at TIFF ’14! The Thriller centers on a Woman disappearing mysteriously on the day of her Wedding Anniversary, boasting a Cast which includes Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Missi Pyle, Scoot McNairy, Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Fugit and Tyler Perry.
The above Still featuring a v. intense-looking Affleck raising awareness about his missing Wife (Pike) was just released to build a bit of anticipation for the Film, which hits theatres Friday, October 3, 2014 via 20th Century Fox.
