ON

A couple of days ago I gave you a taste of what The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was going to offer preview audiences and if you missed it, you missed some good stuff, click here to check it out.

As for what I have for you today are previews of some of the films I promised in that first preview, films such as Edison, Revolver, Pride and Prejudice and a couple more goodies.

So sit back, and enjoy 31 new stills, some of them are fantastic!

EDISON

Edison is the story of an elite unit of cops caught in a maelstrom of corruption by a young journalist who quickly finds himself in over his head. To find the truth and to save the lives of those around him, he must make an uneasy alliance with a burnt-out reporter (Freeman) and the DA’s ace investigator (Spacey).

OLIVER TWIST

Following their Academy-Award winning film, The Pianist, director Roman Polanski and writer Ronal Harwood re-imagine Charles Dickens’ classic story of a young orphan boy who gets involved with a gang of pickpockets in 19th Century London. Abandoned at an early age, Oliver Twist (Barney Clark) is forced to live in a workhouse lorded over by the awful Mr. Bumble, who cheats the boys of their meager rations. Desperate yet determined, Oliver makes his escape to the streets of London. Penniless and alone, he is lured into a world of crime by the sinister Fagin (Sir Ben Kingsley) – the mastermind of a gang of pint-sized pickpockets. Oliver’s rescue by the kindly Mr. Brownlow is only the beginning of a series of adventures that lead him to the promise of a better life.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

The glorious world of Jane Austen is at last brought back to the big screen in all its romance, wit and emotional force in Pride & Prejudice. Faithful to the setting and period of the beloved novel and filmed entirely on location in the U.K., this is the first movie version of the story in 65 years.

THE PROPOSITION

Set in the early 19th century, the film is said to be an epic Australian story about family, loyalty and betrayal… comprable to Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven.

REVOLVER

Jason Statham is Jake Green, a supreme gambler who easily defeats casino owner Dorothy Macha (Ray Liotta), who’s crap at cards but not used to losing. Literally adding insult to financial injury, Jake makes the mistake of rubbing it in, and before you know it, Macha has put a hit out on him.

SHOPGIRL

Based on Steve Martin’s bestselling novella, Shopgirl is a funny and poignant story of love in the modern age. The film catches a glimpse inside the lives of three very different people on diverse paths, but all in search of the same thing. Mirabelle (Danes) is a “plain Jane” overseeing the rarely frequented glove counter at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. An artist struggling to keep up with even the minimum payment on her credit card and student loans, she keeps to herself until a rich, handsome fifty something named Ray Porter (Martin) sweeps her off her feet. Simultaneously, Mirabelle is being pursued by Jeremy (Schwartzman), a basic bachelor who’s not quite as cultured and successful as Ray. When fate steps in, the outcome may not always be a storybook ending, because in the end…it was life.
