Hot off its Premiere at TIFF ’22, Lena Dunham‘s CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY now has a release date.
The year? 1290. In the Medieval English village of Stonebridge, Lady Catherine (known as Birdy) is the youngest child of Lord Rollo and the Lady Aislinn. Her playground is Stonebridge Manor, a house that, like the family, has seen better days. Financially destitute and utterly greedy, Rollo sees his daughter as his path out of financial ruin by marrying her off to a wealthy man for money and land. But Birdy, like all the great teen heroines, is spirited, clever, and adventurous, and ready to put off any suitor that comes calling in increasingly ingenious ways. Her imagination, defiance, and deep belief in her own right to independence put her on a collision course with her parents. When the vilest suitor of all arrives, they are presented with the ultimate test of love for their daughter.
CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY arrives October 7, 2022 on Prime Video.

Much speculation has circled surrounding the casting of the upcoming BOND 24 Film, but rumours were put to rest earlier this morning at London’s Pinewood Studios as Director Sam Mendes unveiled not only the title and release date of the upcoming Sony Pictures release, but also its Cast!
Starring in SPECTRE, which is an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, once again is Daniel Craig who has helped revive the Franchise to much critical and commercial success. The Villain is to be played none other than by two-time Oscar Winner, Christoph Waltz in the role of Oberhauser. Andrew Scott, known best for his work in Sherlock and this year’s Festival Darling, PRIDE, also joins the Cast with Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lea Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour) and Monica Belluci (The Passion of the Christ).
The Synopsis for SPECTRE is as follows:
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
See Mendes’ announcement below:
Sony Pictures release SPECTRE on Friday, November 6, 2015.

Remstar Films release PRIDE on Friday, September 26, 2014.
Today will forever go down as the most explosive day of all time for TIFF! Stars were bursting at every seam after what was felt by the consensus as a a slow start to the Festival on Thursday. Parties were held all around the City and we made several successful Pit Stops around the City and got fueled by Starpower!
The day began with a Press Conference for Jason Reitman‘s new Film about sexual frustrations, Men, Women & Children and although normally Fans get a chance to see and interact with the Cast, it would be the running-behind-schedule which hindered the experience. We still managed to see the following:
Ansel Elgort/Kaitlyn Dever
We also got a little surprise from Australian Actor Alex Russell, whom we met filming CARRIE here a couple years back! The Actor stars in CUT SNAKE at TIFF ’14! He remembers us!
We love Paul Bettany and were ecstatic about meeting him as he went about his Press Day for self-directed Shelter, which premieres at TIFF ’14.
Midday, we head over to Princess of Wales Theatre to invest a bit of time in one of our favourite Actors, Michael Douglas whom along with Co-Star Jeremy Irvine, premiered their new Thriller The Reach. Although it was a bit of a wait and a struggle with the clipboards from Autograph Collectors, we got our coveted Selfies with both Stars!
Not too far long after, we made our way over to the official Audi-sponsored Party for Oscar Contender, PRIDE over at Hotspot The Citizen. All I have to say is Truffle Poutine. Delish. The light-hearted Dramedy documents the true struggle of a Gay Activist Group in England, supporting Miners in need. The only thing however, is that the striking Miners didn’t want to be associated with the Group. The Film won a two-minute Standing Ovation from its Audience yesterday afternoon. See some Snaps of the talented Cast:

We thought we’d re-visit the Cast of Paramount Pictures‘ Men, Women & Children once more at the official Party for the Film at new It-Spot, Montecito which happens also to be owned be legendary Filmmaker Ivan Reitman, Father of Director Jason. Fans and Cameras lined the Carpet in eager anticipation as the Stars paraded by one-by-one including a few surprises! I was so happy to see our Friend Ansel Elgort, whom we met here in the City a couple years back when he was filming CARRIE. He noticed us right away at the Carpet proclaiming, “I’ve got to get a Selfie with Mr. Will!”. We’re incredibly proud how well he’s done and also what’s next to come for the Divergent and The Fault in our Stars Talent, who clearly has been propelled into Mega-stardom from the ecstatic screams I heard from Fans everywhere he went today.
An annual favourite Fixture of ours at TIFF is the InStyle Magazine Party, which shuts down a strip of Yorkville for a night and the amount of Starpower seen here was s t a g g e r i n g. We admit it was a bit of on the decline mostly due to unfortunate timing later in the Festival after an abundance of Stars leave town, but was it ever a night to remember for the Fans! We’re talking Megawatts!
