The 44th annual Toronto International Film Festival is currently being held from September 5 to September 15, 2019. While the beginning of fall usually means back-to-school and the end of outdoor barbecues but Hollywood has its own way of changing seasons. This film festival is the official launch of the Oscars race (only five months away, because of an earlier telecast in February 2020).
Recently, Venice Film Festival was held and now Toronto Film Festival is going on. Today, we will list Top 5 Most Anticipated Movies At The Toronto International Film Festival 2019.
Director: Lorene Scafaria
Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, Lizzo
Hustlers receive positive feedback from the movie reviewers. They’re having feeling that this movie will be box office hit. Set in 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, a group of strippers at a New York club take extreme measures to stay in business. If there’s any justice, Jennifer Lopez will receive her first Oscar nomination for channeling the ringleader Ramona as Erin Brockovich by way of Matthew McConaughey in “Magic Mike.”
Director: Rupert Goold
Cast: Renee Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Gaia Weiss, Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon
Everyone wondered if she still had it. In the winter of 1969, after running out of money and opportunities in Hollywood, Judy Garland performed a series of concerts in London. On some nights, she sparkled like Dorothy and on the other she could barely stand on stage. Judging by the ecstatic reviews out of Telluride, it looks like Zellweger (who proved her performing chops in the 2002 film adaptation of “Chicago”) could be singing her way back to the Oscars.
Director: Todd Philips
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, Brett Cullen
This movie is receiving lots of positive response form all the recent film festivals. Last week, Joker premiered at the Venice Film Festival and there’s a lot of anticipation surrounding this stand-alone movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Batman villain most memorably played in the past by Jack Nicholson and Health Ledger.
Director: James Mangold
Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Catriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon, JJ Field, Jack McMullen
In his first time since his “Logan” triumph in 2017. James Mangold tackles the subject of ordinary, if also tormented, two men race-car drivers. Set in 1959, the two racers are determined to beat Ferrari-Partnering with Ford Motor Co. According to Debruge’s review from Telluride, the two-and-a-half-hour movie drags a bit, but the lead performances are superlative.
Director: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie
Cast: Adam Sandler, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch
In this movie, Adam Sandler plays Howie Ratner, a scheming, sped-up jeweller on the edge of ruin.If there’s silly Sandler and serious Sandler, Howie sounds like he steals from one to create the other — silly Sandler in a serious movie. The results sound intense, and perhaps divisive — turning to Debruge from Telluride once again, who wrote, ”the Safdies are committed to sustaining the intensity for the entire running time, which can be both exhilarating and exhausting.”
