Read More

The Toronto Film Fest unfurls September 4th through the 14th. New York kind of pulled an announcement coup, being the first major North American fest to announce the premiere of David Fincher’s Gone Girl, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, with Inarritu’s Birdman closing. But TIFF is right up on its tail, announcing a partial slate today. Among those announced early, Ed Zwick’s chess drama Pawn Sacrifice (I can’t wait…
