TIFF 2014: Complete 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Announced

2014 Toronto Film Festival LineupThis morning the first wave of the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup was announced and so far it’s an impressive list of films including films from Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam, David Dobkin and many others.

Probably the films announced so far that I’m most excited about begin with Roskam’s The Drop, Baumbach’s While We’re Young starring Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried, The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch and The Theory of Everything starring Eddie Redmayne.

Then you get into Edward Zwick‘s Pawn Sacrifice (a nice surprise), Dobkin’s The Judge with Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, Gordon Green’s Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, Liv Ullman‘s Miss Julie starring Jessica Chastain

I’m also very excited to see Cannes stand outs Mr. Turner, Foxcatcher, Damian Szifron Wild Tales and David Cronenberg‘s Maps to the Stars. Not to forget Whiplash, which made an impression at both Sundance and Cannes.

The addition of Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal was expected and it’s no surprise to see Jean-Marc Vallee‘s Wild or John Stewart‘s Rosewater. Also as a part of the Gala Presentation is Antoine Fuqua‘s The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington and Chloe Moretz as well as Shawn Levy‘s This is Where I Leave You.

Finally, Jason Reitman‘s Men, Women and Children has made the list along with Oren Moverman‘s Time Out of Mind.

No word yet on Xavier Dolan‘s Mommy, J.C. Chandor‘s A Most Violent Year, Werner Herzog‘s Queen of the Desert or Anton Corbijn‘s Life as of yet, but there is more to come…
