Just two days left of TIFF ’15, it’s only midday and we’re shocked how many stars still are milling about doing press. See who we’ve spotted this afternoon!
Keith Richards.The Rolling Stones rock legend made a spirited entrance at his Press Conference for Documentary Underthe Influence, drawing lots of cheers. He’s got a jam-packed day with his Premiere tailgating the conference!
Jeremy Irons always has been a goal of ours to meet and today he was kind to do a roll down of his window for Photos. Note, the legend doesn’t do Selfies, so he made a bit of an exception. He also is here for The Man Who Knew Infinity.
“I don’t know who I really am inside. I don’t know what I’ll be”.

It isn’t every day that Jeremy Irons dishes praise, hence when he says, “What can the Audience expect to see? A great Film, a great Story”, we are forced to listen.
In addition to Irons, the Fantasy-Drama stars Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Thomas Mann, Emmy Rossum and Breakout Stars Alice Englert and Alden Ehrenreich. Richard LaGravenese directs this Story about Ethan (Ehrenreich), who falls in love with a mysterious new Girl in Town named Lena (Englert).

This is going to be so deep, dark and delicious! Beautiful Creatures is poised to make an impact in the never-too-crowded field of Young Adult- Fiction Adaptations and following the massive success of the Harry Potter Franchise, Warner Bros. has its sights set on this first Film based upon Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia’s Novel to whet the thirsts of a demographic which will not be ignored.
The Cast is superb and the Director Richard LaGravanese (P.S. I Love You, Freedom Writers) knows the way straight to heart. The Drama-Fantasy stars Alice Englert, Thomas Mann, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis and Alden Ehrenreich.
Beautiful Creatures centers around Lena (Englert) who moves to the town of Gatlin, catching the eye of a bored Ethan (Ehrenreich). He gets more than he bargained for as Lena‘s secret dark powers are unleashed, posing potential danger to others and herself.

Warner Bros. releases Beautiful Creatures on February 13, 2013.
The 13th Annual Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival kicks-off next week in Toronto, running between Wednesday, October 10 through Sunday, October 14, 2012. With 70 Canadian and International Films being showcased this year, Movie Lovers have a chance to connect with Filmmakers who are bringing to light the issues impacting us on a global scale. Galas, Child & Youth Programs, Industry Series, Panels and Screenings (some free even!) highlight the Festival.
Here are some of the Films to look-out for:
LOST RIVERS– Caroline Bâcle (CAN) World Premiere, Opening Night Gala Presentation
Planet in Focus’ 2010 Green Pitch Winner Lost Rivers delves into the often overlooked rich-history of rivers within Canada and around the World. Once flowing through nearly every developed city in the world, rivers provided the infrastructure upon which modern metropolises were built. In this adventurous and revelatory look into the disappearance and recent resurfacing of these historic waterways, Lost Rivers leads us down the drain into vast underground museums of urban development.
CHASING ICE– Jeff Orlowski (USA) Canadian Premiere, Closing Night Gala Presentation
James Balog, National Geographic Photographer and Founder of the Extreme Ice Survey—an innovative, long-term photography project that merges art and science—sets out with his posse of young explorers to the Arctic with the aim of giving a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems. Setting up their high-tech time-lapse cameras in sub-zero temperatures, the adventurers come face to face with their own mortality and the all-too-real signs of climate change. Balog and his team capture the magnificent glaciers in motion through film and photography in a way that has never been seen before and, with the alarming rate of glacial recession, is likely to never be seen again. With breathtaking images of a land that is rapidly shifting, Chasing Ice is a must-see film that takes us to the precipice of a disappearing world and proposes a challenge for change.
NORTHWORDS– Geoff Morrison (Canada) Toronto Premiere
Northwords is a new transmedia documentary project that is hosted by Shelagh Rogers, the Voice of CBC Radio’s popular book show The Next Chapter. The project follows a group of Canada’s finest writers as they travel to awe-inspiring Torngat Mountains National Park in northern Labrador to explore, have adventures and create new works that add to the continuing story of the north.
TRASHED – Candida Brady (UK) Canadian Premiere, Special Presentation
Academy Award-winning Actor Jeremy Irons pulls up his Wellies to cross littered beaches in Lebanon, inspect prison compost heaps in Yorkshire and investigate a state-of-the-art recycling plant in San Francisco on his voyage of discovery about the garbage we create, every hour of every day, across the planet. Journeying from Iceland to Indonesia, Irons speaks to Scientists, Politicians and ordinary Citizens whose health and livelihoods have been affected by pollution.
When her single mom runs off to California to pursue her dream of becoming a make-up artist for the stars, Lauduree (Perla Haney-Jardine, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Untraceable), an eighth grader passionate about the environment, clings to her rural home and a science experiment she hopes will help slow climate change. During this troubled time, Lauduree is forced to come to terms with her relationships with the other women in her life: Ms. Markovi, the Science Club Teacher she idolizes (Lili Taylor, Six Feet Under, I Shot Andy Warhol) and Greta, her caustic grandmother superbly played by Amy Madigan (Gone Baby Gone, Field of Dreams).
With attentions turned to her Ginger & Rosa Co-Stars Christina Hendricks and Elle Fanning, this Actress went under the radar of many at TIFF 2012, but I had my eyes peeled! Make no mistake, she is going to be a major Star this time next year. Alice Englert is the Daughter of brilliant Director Jane Campion and Filmmaker Colin Englert, hailing from New Zealand. She will be starring as Lena in the upcoming Film Adaptation of Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl‘s Beautiful Creatures.
The Story centers around Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) who meets the mysterious Lena, both of them uncovering v. dark secrets about their Families. Beautiful Creatures stars also Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emily Rossum and Kyle Gallner. Thrilled also to see Thomas Mann (Project X) advance to this next step of his Career – was amazing getting to chat with him last year as he was in-town!
Warner Bros. releases Beautiful Creatures right in-time for Valentine’s Day on February 13, 2013.
