TIFF 2021 starts tomorrow, and I’ve been reflecting on all the years that I’ve been covering Canada’s best festival, and one of the most interesting public festivals in the world.
Boy Erased, the second directorial effort from actor and writer Joel Edgerton, takes an uncomfortable and wholly moving look at a young man, full of doubt, who’s sent to an unspeakably awful place to “recover.”
The unimpressive big budget rebooting of The Mummy – which is set to kick off a “Dark Universe” franchise that brings together some of the silver screen’s most iconic movie monsters – is one of the laziest summer blockbusters in recent memory.
This is it, Harry Potter fans. Opening in theatres everywhere, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will dominate the weekend box office as kids and adults alike head out to see the penultimate chapter in J.K. Rowling’s massive wizarding franchise. Plus, a look at The Next Three Days starring Russell Crowe, and new films arriving next Wednesday, November 24.
New this week on Blu-ray and DVD: Russell Crowe stars in Ridley Scott’s action-adventure, Robin Hood; Kevin Spacey stars in the 1990s satirical drama, American Beauty; plus a look at a number of new television seasons coming out on store shelves.
New in theatres this Friday: Russell Crowe stars in Ridley Scott‘s action-adventure, Robin Hood; Jay Baruchel plays a reincarnated historical icon in The Trotsky; plus a look at the romantic comedy, Just Wright.
Coming out this week on DVD and Blu-ray, Russell Crowe plays a journalist looking for dangerous truths in State Of Play, Disneynature’s Earth takes us on a magnificent tour of our little blue planet, plus the third season of Heroes.
Opening this week in theatres, Jason Statham miraculously returns as Chev Chelios in Crank High Voltage, Zac Efron stars as 37-year-old restored to his youth in 17 Again, and in the political thriller State Of Play, Russell Crowe plays a man trying to get to the bottom of a massive Washington cover-up.
Take a trip down New York’s criminal memory lane this week, with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe in a tale of a drug lord who seizes control on the streets of Harlem. Also arriving this week, George Clooney stars in the drama Michael Clayton, and a documentary explores the life of Kurt Cobain through audio and an almost dream-like video collage.
Director Ridley Scott and the cast of A Good Year walk the red carpet and chat with the press while in town for the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.
