If ever a movie needed to be rated R, it’s When the Bough Breaks, the evil-surrogate “thriller” from Screen Gems, the latest in what has become their annual fall tradition of releasing a bad genre movie aimed at black audiences (see also: The Perfect Guy, No Good Deed).

Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven—itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 film Seven Samurai—was the opening film at TIFF.

In 2009 airline pilot Captain Chesley Sullenberger successfully landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River, saving the lives of everyone on board. It was a truly amazing feat, and “Sully” became an overnight hero. The predictable media wave followed—interviews, book deal, and, now, a feature film directed by Clint Eastwood Full Story
