Home Movies Toronto Film Festival 2017: George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Andy Serkis Among Directors...

Films by George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Andy Serkis and Darren Aronofsky lead the 2017 Toronto Film Festival. There will be plenty of stars and a closing film but so far no opening night film has been announced. TIFF does seem to have scooped up the lion’s share of new films for the fall, perhaps check mating the New York Film Festival and putting into question what will show at Telluride. Missing from this list is Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories”– maybe because it’s not having a theatrical release–and Reginald Hudlin’s “Marshall.” The two big Amazon movies– Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” and Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying” — are committed to the NYFF. TIFF will have more announcements shortly. Looks very good, I’d say.
