The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival has made the final touches on its line-up, and made some nice additions. For the first time, TIFF will have movies in IMAX. The films that will be going big are Gravity, Man of Tai Chi, Metallica Through the Never, and The Wizard of Oz. All of these movies except Man of Tai Chi will also be in 3D. Other additions include Claire Denis‘ Bastards, a conversation with Spike Jonze and a preview of his new film Her (the full film is scheduled to debut as the closer at the New York Film Festival), Ron Howard‘s Jay-Z documentary Made in America, and more.
Hit the jump for the new additions. The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 – 15th.
The Toronto International Film Festival has announced part of its line-up for 2013. The festival will kick off with Bill Condon’s Julian Assange movie, The Fifth Estate, and close with Daniel Schecter’s Jackie Brown prequel, Life of Crime. In between, you have the premieres of Ron Howard’s Rush; Jason Reitman’s Labor Day starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet; Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender; Richard Ayoade’s The Double starring Jesse Eisenberg; David Gordon Green’s Joe starring Nicolas Cage; Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three movie Devil’s Knot starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon; the North American premiere of Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, and many more. Even the Mike Meyer’s documentary Supermensch that we reported on yesterday will be on hand, so it looks like he’s already completed it. Unfortunately, I’m sure TIFF will front-load their schedule like they always do, so there will be plenty of tough choices, but Gravity and 12 Years a Slave are the must-sees that immediately jump to mind.
Hit the jump for a list of the Galas and Special Presentations. Please note that there are plenty of other categories that will be announced soon including the full Midnight Madness, Documentary, and Masters line-up so stay tuned. The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 – 15th.
