So up in Canada or as I like to call it America’s hat, The TIFF has been going on. That’s the Toronto International Film Festival for all you film noobs. Somehow, we did not have enough funds in our 3 guys treasure room to fund a trip to this festival. However, fear not, you can check out the trailers from some films generating some buzz at TIFF this year. O and if you want to check out all the low down on TIFF you can find the official website right about here. Before I forget, everyone at the festival loved the upcoming Gravity but I have already shown the trailers for that film.
August: Osage County: A huge highly talented ensemble cast in this film about strong women from a dysfunctional family. The family’s matriarch is Violet Weston (Meryl Streep). Word out of the festival is that this film will get Streep and oscar nod. The whole family returns home to Oklahoma to deal with a family crisis and there clothes are not the only baggage they bring with them. Then a twister comes and everyone dies the end. Ok maybe I made up that last part. This film is going to get a limited release in the good old USA on Christmas so that it will be eligible for awards season. Here is hoping that you are luck enough to have the film playing near you.
Prisoners: Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Hugh Jackman and Terrance Howard star in this thriller about police and family members looking for two missing girls. This one looks like a tension filled take no prisoners thriller. The Director Denis Villeneuve has a second film Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal entered at the festival as well but I could not find a trailer for that one. Anyhow this film will be released on September 2oth which is actually not too far away.
Dallas Buyers Club: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto star in this film about A hard partying Texas electrician who comes down with AIDS, back in the Reagan years when they were calling it gay cancer. McConaughey went all method actor in portraying Ron Woodroof on this film based on a true story. This looks like an intense drama with a great performance by McConaughey. I look forward to checking out this film when it is released on November 1st.
Labor Day: Josh Brolin stars as an escaped convict on the run. He hides out in depressed single mom Adele’s house (Kate Winslet). Apparently single mom and son start to become attached to this escaped prisoner. This is a film by Jason Reitman but word on the street is that it is a lot darker than some of his previous films (Juno). This film is scheduled for a January 31st release. Yes I know that is a clip from the film and not a trailer. Also sorry about the ad before the clip.
So there is our 3 guys round up for TIFF 2013. If one of his the lotto or something like that we might report live from this festival next year. Do any of these trailers strike your fancy? Did you attend the TIFF? If so we would love to hear about it.
Everyone loves Disneyland
