TIFF ’15 is starting to wind its way down and although the star power might not be where it was this past weekend, there still is plenty to be excited about. Today we caught-up with the casts of Man Down, Room and Anomalisa.
David Thewlis. The English actor gained much popularity with a younger generation for his work on the Harry Potter franchise as Remus Lupin. He is at TIFF ’15 with Anomalisa, a stop-motion animated feature directed by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson. The Film won a Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival recently.
Brie Larson. This talented young actress this past weekend at TIFF ’15 was honoured with the IMDB Star Meter Award, normally given to an actor who shows a lot of promise and buzz.

At long last a Trailer finally has surfaced for Oscar Contender, THE FIFTH ESTATE! Although it’s not out till October 18, 2013 – meaning Benedict Cumberbatch will have two Movies out on one day, meaning that he could well join the likes of Jessica Chastain, having the distinction of starring in the Top Two Films at the Box Office on one weekend!
Triggering our age of high-stakes secrecy, explosive news leaks and the trafficking of classified information, WikiLeaks forever changed the game. Now, in a Dramatic-Thriller based on real events, THE FIFTH ESTATE reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st Century’s most fiercely debated organization. The Story begins as WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team-up to become underground Watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows Whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and a defining question of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society—and what are the costs of exposing them?
The Fifth Estate also stars: Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Alicia Vikander, Peter Capaldi, Carice van Houten, Dan Stevens, with Stanley Tucci and Laura Linney

Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten also star.
