Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2014 Preview
Itís crazy that another edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is already upon us. The years go by so quickly, and I canít believe this will be the sixth time that Iíve been lucky enough to cover the festival for JoBlo.com. Last yearís TIFF was one of the best ever, with GRAVITY, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, and 12 YEARS A SLAVE all being among the yearís selections. This yearís fest isnít without controversy, as a new rule regarding world premieres means that some of the biggest titles, including the Benedict Cumberbatch Alan Turing biopic THE IMITATION GAME, WILD and FOXCATCHER wonít play until the second week, as the first weekend is now devoted solely to world premieres (of course Ė you can count on reviews from JoBlo.com for the duration of the fest). Itís also worth noting the Arnold Schwarzenegger-zombie pic, MAGGIE was due to premiere at TIFF, but was pulled at the eleventh hour by its new distributors, Lionsgate.
All in all, the looks to be another jam-packed year, and the following are twenty of the films we at JoBlo.com are most looking forward to seeing. And donít forget to keep checking JoBlo.com, and Twitter (@joblocom & @cbumbray ) for all the latest from the festÖ
