The films set to launch at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival have been announced.
Opening this year’s festival will be Jean Marc-Vallee’s latest drama, Demolition, which sees Jake Gyllenhaal star as an investment banker whose life unravels after his wife dies in a car crash.
Oscar winning actors, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore will also be making a triumphant return to the festival with their most recent movies.
Redmayne – who won Best Actor for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything – stars in Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, which follows the story of transgender pioneer, Lili Elbe. Meanwhile Moore – who won Best Actress for her performance in Still Alice – stars alongside Ellen Page in LGBT drama, Freeheld.
Other films set to screen at the festival include Stephen Frears’ Lance Armstrong film The Program, Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi The Martian, and Trumbo – the biopic about US screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (played by Bryan Cranston) who was blacklisted from Hollywood for his political beliefs.
Also set to make their premieres at the festival are Johnny Depp’s latest film, Black Mass and British drama, Legend – which sees Tom Hardy playing both Kray brothers.
The festival – which is often regarded as the launching pad for awards season – will take place this year from 10th-20th September. For the full list of film premieres, visit the TIFF website.
