Toronto International Film Festival Line-Up Includes Malick, Affleck, Wachowskis


Has the summer movie season gotten you down? Did some of those hopeful-looking blockbusters disappoint you? Well, we have some good news for you. Today we learned the date of the start of fall movie season: September 6, the opening of the Toronto International Film Festival.

This year, the TIFF line-up is heavily skewed toward world premieres, instead of relying on repeats from Cannes and Sundance. Among the high-profile bows scheduled for the fest are Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," the Wachowskis' "Cloud Atlas," and Rian Johnson's "Looper," which will open TIFF.

There's a lot to digest here, and every time we take another look at the list, we catch another surprise. There's "The Place Beyond The Pines," Derek Cianfrance's follow-up to "Blue Valentine" with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" with Emma Watson has received some glowing reviews already. "Argo," "The Silver Lings Playbook," "Hyde Park On Hudson," there's so much here.
