JamesFifty Shades of Grey trilogy. The trailer continues the franchise’s S&M-lite relationship between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), but with this movie, it seems to go all-in with the melodramatic thrills and sanitized bondage action.

10 September 2017 11:37 AM, PDT

British cinema has been well represented at this year's Tiff, with some 30 UK productions spread across the lineup. At the prestige end of the spectrum, we find On Chesil Beach, an adaptation of Ian McEwan's novella written by the author himself. McEwan – doing double duty at the festival with Richard Eyre's film The Children Act – claimed that the notion of a film version was far from his mind while he worked on the original story, but noted that the slimmed-down format… »

10 September 2017 11:15 AM, PDT

“When I first read the pitch document for this film, it said, 'I want this to be a cinematic kick in the teeth,” Australian actor Ryan Corr (Hacksaw Ridge) recalls, speaking to director Stephen McCallum’s crime drama 1%, bowing here at Tiff. “I remember that standing out so strong—it's pulling no punches.” This is certainly an apt description for McCallum’s directorial debut of Shakespearean proportions, which explores a seedy Australian underbelly of motorcycle gangs… »

‘Kodachrome’ Stars Ed Harris & Jason Sudeikis: Give Us Those Nice, Bright Colors Of Film – Toronto Studio

10 September 2017 8:11 AM, PDT

Over the last decade or two, the medium of film has been on the decline, with the stratospheric rise of digital technology. Noting the business component of “show business,” this makes sense: Increasingly abundant and cheaper by the day, professional grade digital cameras provide a cheaper and easier workflow than any film camera could, also allowing a director to shoot off as many takes as he or she wishes, running the camera for any amount of time. Though film is… »

9 September 2017 7:10 PM, PDT

When Ben Stiller connects with a script that gives him a wholly three dimensional character like Brad Sloan, it is a pleasure to watch — and that is just the opportunity writer/director Mike White has handed him in Brad’s Status, a comedy with genuine smarts that says a lot about our lot in life and how we come to learn to accept who we are.
